I interviewed him once about 10 years ago and he didn't strike me as gay. If you know people who are totally into music/dance/SecondLife it can really take up a lot of their time so they have a kind of otherworldly air about them. I think he likes girls but they are secondary to music. He's had those since he was like four, and was watched like a hawk until about 16, so women are nice and great but he's lived most of his life alone and on tour. Sorry, but not a lot of women or men, want to be in a relationship knowing they are going to be No. 2. And the thing is, I don't think he's even aware that's how it is -- because he's an artist and that's how they act.
Anyway, it was worth this post for the picture. Enjoy!
