Adam Levine Says Jake G Is Not Gay


Adma Levine sat down for an interview with Out Magazine. The reporter asked Adam about hanging out with Jake Gyllenhaal so much and what that means. "Will everyone stop thinking that dude is gay? Seriously guys. How immature is it of the media to perceive this guy -- it has to be because of Brokeback, right? I’ve known this dude forever. He’s one of my oldest friends, and it’s very weird that they have this -- it’s very immature and infantile the way they treat his whole situation. If him hanging out with his bros means he’s gay, it’s like further perpetuating that weird homophobia that exists in our culture, which is just stupid. So, yeah, he’s my buddy. I f**kin’ love the guy."

I don't think it is because of Brokeback. I think the gay rumors started long before Brokeback. I don't think the rumors will go away until Jake gets caught having sex with a woman in an airplane bathroom and the next week gets caught having sex with a female hooker in his car. I think then the rumors would stop.

I also think Adam is wrong that people think Jake is gay for hanging out with guy friends and even if people did think that, how is that homophobia? Homophobia is an irrational fear or hatred of homosexuals. I don't see where Adam is going with that at all, and you would think a reporter from Out Magazine would have called him on it because debating whether Jake is gay is not homophobia.

I think it is more 'pegging' someone as homosexual. I'm still not sure he's gay. He seems to private for me.

We're at the point were we think everyone is gay.

But I think Ted made up Toothy Tile or it was about some actor whose star burned out long ago and he's been riding the whole Jake thing. I think he brings it out every few months for traffic. I find it hard to believe that Jake could still be dating Austin Nichols for 7 years. Or that Jake was paying Reese to be his girlfriend as Enty's has implied.

Although...gay or straight Jake is hot.

Has anyone seen the movie poster for his latest flick? I think that it is an indie? Dude is on a bed with underwear below his ass!!

HAWT!!! ITA, Nicola.

I think even though homophobia has the word "phobia" in it, it's come to mean more than just an irrational hatred or fear of gay people...I think anyone who even dislikes gay people in general should be considered a homophobe.

lol..pegging.

BigMama said...

I must be losing my mind, I read this twice and still don't see him actually say "Jake is not gay". Having said that, I like Jake G. and don't give a flying flip if he is gay, straight or one of those weird dudes who just isn't into anyone or anything. It's his business.

It seems like he is going to be stuck with the gay tag forever, especially because of Ted's Toothy Tile blinds. He has eliminated everyone under the sun EXCEPT Jake.
I don't care one way or the other if he is gay or straight, what he does on his OWN time is HIS business.

We get it, Adam Levine. You have friends.

I with the people who could care less.

Lainey stated several times that Jake Gyllenhaal is NOT gay.
I had to go a little back on the live blogs to get the exact quotes:

Lainey:
Jakey and Reese were NOT fake. This Jake is gay thing is getting so tired.
(...)
Lainey:
I have no idea about other blinds from other columnists. I just know that Jake's alleged gayness comes from 1. Brokeback Mountain and 2. he goes to ball games with his male friend. I mean...we need a little more, don't we. He's not gay. He was legit with Reese. For sure. From several independent, reliable industry sources who have competing interests. NOT GAY.

That nude movie poster was a fake....just b.c someone poses nude doesn't make them gay.

I don't even get why people think his gay.

Cheryl said...

What amuses me about all the gay denials with Jake is that it's never, "Jake's not gay." It's always, JAKE IS NOT GAY WHY DO PEOPLE THINK THAT NO ONE THOUGHT HEATH LEDGER WAS GAY!!!!!????? Why do his defenders become so unglued about it?

cibele said...

Some of my friends didn't even know that was this "Jake is gay" rumor. So thanks to Adam Levine for spreading the rumor that, in my opinion, was restricted to blogs and internet media.

Tenley said...

Heath Ledger also was in Brokeback -- as Jake's lover! -- and the gay rumours didn't follow him because of it. Jake's gay.

Monica said...

Jake was pegged gay when a lot of people thought he was Toothy Tile and Ted never eliminated him. People swear he's T.T, although I think it is Travolta.

I see where Adam is going with his frustration. Our culture gets sucked into the whole 'if two guys are friends, they're gay/bi/whatever'. Why can't guys just be friend? Some men are sensitive; some men are affectionate (with both sexes); some men are empathetic.

My husband's best friend is openly gay. Do I think they're having a secret affair? No. I'm just glad that my hubby is not homophobic, biased or hateful.

i'm sorry, was this article about Jakey G.? i got stuck on the picture of my boyfriend

Speculation about other people's lives is just dirty fun. As much as I enjoy playing "wonder if...", when it comes down to it, I really don't care what two consenting adults do in their private life. It's a shame so much of who one is winds up having to be hidden due to the pressures of "polite society".

Teresa said...

Adam never comes out and says that Jake isn't gay. Read it carefully folks. All Adam is saying is how outraged he is that people are saying Jake is gay. Jake G. is definitely Toothy Tile. Travolta is another Ted C. Blind Vice nicknamed Seymour Plow-Me-More.
