Selling a total of over 200,000 copies of his double A-side single ‘Evergreen/Anything Is Possible’ in its second week of release, Will Young, the champ from ‘Pop Idol’, has held on to his No.1 spot on the UK chart again this week. His achievements come at a time where he has chosen to come out of the closet, after months of speculation, shocking the ladies and probably pleasing a few chaps out there that he is indeed queer.Insisting that he has never intended to keep his sexual preference a secret, Will said “I’m sure this won’t come as a surprise to many people, although I’ve always been discreet,”.
Adding further, the 23 year old singer said “My family and friends have always known. For me it’s normal and there’s nothing to be ashamed of. I’m gay and I’m comfortable with that. I really don’t know what the fuss is about. I always try to be honest with myself and truthful with everyone. Some other media pressure has led me to talk about my private life. I always try to be honest and true to myself and not take life too seriously.”
Will has also added that his manager, Simon Fuller, was glad and was supportive about his “coming out” decision.
