First guy to ever smooch “X Factor” champ Joe McElderry kisses and tells to British tabloid
I’m not sure I remember anyone ever getting their first 15 minutes of fame kissing someone.
But that seems to be the case for the first guy to lock lips with the newly out Joe McElderry of The X Factor fame.
It did not take long for Sean Ryan, a model and hairdresser trainee, to tell all to the British tabloid The Sun about how he and Joe met while the singer was auditioning for X Factor:
“I got up to go home. I turned round and he made the first move and kissed me. It was definitely the first time he’d kissed a guy because he told me. He said he’d kissed a few girls but never had sex. It was a long passionate kiss. But that was all that happened and I left.”
Sean says he wanted to have a relationship with Joe but “he said he couldn’t commit to anything because he was so focused on the X Factor. I was disappointed but it was great that he was so honest about it.”
“He’s been brave,” he added. “It can’t have been easy doing that in the public eye.”
