I have to agree here. It has nothing to do with the music. Same with REM. Although I must admit it's hard to watch REM now Stipe is just so far over the top.
That reminds me of a funny interview I saw on VH1 one time, I think behind the Scenes: REM. When Stipe became openly gay, people were shocked, and he was like "I thought it was obvious to everyone. I mean I would practically cross-dress on stage..."
The fact that Elton John's gay is old news, but maybe old enough some people didnt know about it.
