I am at the crossroads again

Continuing the grand tradition of being behind in the news, I am only able to bring you this because of the amazing blog You Don't Know Pop (which you all should be reading by now).

It really is a shame that he probably didn't have too much choice about this, after the radio thing, and I think he is correct in saying that many people won't be surprised--but it was still his choice and that's no less reason for this to have been a difficult decision; there are other popstars who have remained silent or continued to deny reports for years.

Good for you, Anthony.

(Screencap from the Herald Sun here, but the much better article is from the Daily Telegraph here.)

Everyone should go immediately download the Tim Dawes remix of "Rain" that I have been looking for for ages and am beyond ecstatic to finally have. Thanks so much, Troy!

Oh, geez, I was wondering why you hadn't mentioned this yet! I figured you'd heard about this weeks ago when it happened!

Oh, I heard about the radio thing when that happened--there were a couple of discussions in the comments of this blog about it (with Robpop, Paul, and Adem, I think), but I didn't want to say anything on the blog itself until there was an "official announcement" (sort of my policy, if I have one)--I was very worried he was going to pull a took so long that I really didn't think he was going to say anything.

But, yes, I'm always behind on the music news! :)

i think it only became relevant when he confirmed it - i HATE it when people are forced out the closet (bites tongue to stop whole Perez Hilton venom spewing forth) and i can't imagine how horrible it must have been for him. People should be allowed to come out in their own time and when they are capable of handling any backlash they feel that sadly they may get. It can be hard for someone in the family eye so god knows what it would be like in the public eye...

Stay tuned to the blog in the next couple days!

Paul--did you see where his boyfriend (of two and a half years!) is named Paul? I agree with everything you said--perfect.

Ooo, I can't wait! :) I'd stay tuned anyway, though!

it was an absolutely beautiful, honest and heartfelt message he left on his homepage

A brave and beautiful man, I wish him long life and happiness with 'his Paul'.
