Joel Goncalves: Gay Slurs, Gay-Positive Lyrics
Season 3 (2012) of Australia's X-Factor, an amateur musical competition, found 17-year old Joel Goncalves performing. He got good reviews with "This Girl is Mine," but later forgot his lyrics and was booted off.
"Please Don't Go"
The interesting thing about his covers: they lack the heterosexist "Girl! Girl! Girl!" of most teen idol songs.
Settle down with me, cover me up, cuddle me in
Lie down with me and hold me in your arms
"I Won't Give Up:
I won't give up on us, even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up, still looking up
So is he gay in real life?
Nope, homophobic. On his twitter account, he uses "gay" as a slur. The "all my fans" lyrics are just a happy accident.
