James Blunt wants to be honorary gay

With big, romantic ballads like You’re Beautiful and Goodbye My Lover, singer James Blunt has sold over 20 million albums and 17 million singles worldwide.

But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t had his share of critics who think he’s not a man’s man.

‘I sing songs that aren’t very macho and so people will say, ‘oh you’re effeminate,’ or ‘gay’ as if calling me gay were an insult,’ he tells the BBC.

He goes on to say: ‘But to call me ‘gay’ is a compliment and I would like to be considered an honorary gay man because I’m totally at ease with myself. And I suppose I’ve written songs that are sensitive because I wouldn’t normally describe those emotions in everyday life.’

And for the record, the five-time Grammy nominee is married to Sofia Wellesley and the couple are currently expecting their first child.

He was also a captain in the British Army and served as an armored reconnaissance officer in the NATO deployment in Kosovo.
