Shameful confession: I (a straight male) like celebrity gossip. A lot.

I am a veteran reader of supermarket tabloids and sites like perez hilton, the superfical dot com, and other sites that follow around celebs and stars and comment on their tawdry lives and sleazy relationships.

Why do I care so much about wheter Kashardian will be upstaged by her fiesty, up-and-coming little sister? Why do I find myself hungering for news of reactions to Jessica Simpson's daring recent pregnancy photo shoots? Why do I have yahoo's "omg!" bookmarked? I'm a man, darn it! A manly man! With a real workshop and work bench and lots of lumberjack shirts and stuff! What the hey?

According to conventional wisom on ATS, this is about the worst habit one can have. I guess I'm subjecting my brain to mind-softening TPTB control beams and evil rays every time I flip through a copy of "Us" at the dentist's office. So sue me. I'm coming out of the closet. I like celeb crap news! And I'm not ashamed to admit it! It soothes and relaxes me somehow, makes me feel all is right with the world. Plus I like the deshevelled paparazi shots of celebs looking all un-made-up, like in their hooded sweatshirts on the way to get groceries or something. It makes them seem more human. I'm sure there is some weird psychology at work, but whatever. I've said my piece.

Admitting is the first step in curing! Good job!

But I admit I succumb to gossip reading, too, sometimes. I allow myself 15 minutes of total reality disconnection. It's like meditating... on a low level, tho...

It numbs...

That's funny. I never admit this to anyone, but I'm a straight male who loves musicals. "Singing in the Rain," "Oklahoma," etc. I have a number of them on DVD and watch them every so often. (Fortunately I have enough good sense not to sing along; my whiskied croak would empty the house.)

From my research, what I gather is that males who turn from straight to gay always start their conversion by reading celebrity gossip tabloids, and then becoming addicted to it. Your journey has just begun, embrace it.

My name is ANOK, I'm straight, and I like shoes (with sox, yes I'm straight), and the smell of rose water. I like cooking and taking baths. I hate sports. Wait, did I say I'm straight?

The gossip thing though, yeah that's gay.

...the next step is to come out of the closet and just stop denying yourself.

We get it honey, it's OK...

Another sign of becoming gay is when a man tucks his weiner between his legs and prances around in front of a mirror. Come on OP, admit that you've done this.

Keep it on the low-down but many's the time I've nestled up in the evening with a good solid book only to gaze lovingly across at my bloke while he's supposedly watching sport on the telly...
but he's snuggled up with my Chleo or Cosmo mag and chocolate!!!
Trying to look nonchalant of course! With lots of ' what is this rubbish you gals read all the time...oh look, Kardashians having another baby.. erm.. I mean...shut up'
