Homosexuality is a topic which I take seriously. I went to a Christian high school and when one of my friends came out, a lot of his closest friends refused to talk to him. It broke my heart. He was the same guy he was the day before, and it really showed me that it's not a choice. That's my opinion. However, it seems like many times in the media, sexual orientation is utilized for publicity.
If an up-and-coming star is interviewed and asked about their sexuality, there's nothing wrong with that. However, as a 62 year old down-and-falling star goes on network television and proclaims this, there may be other motives at work. I didn't see the interview, so I don't know if it was a planted question or if she gave more information that was asked of her. Though, to put that kind of information in the spotlight, when you're not really on the radar, seems a bit desperate.
I'll say that I'm in no position to judge her or assume her motives, but if I'm being critical, I'll speculate that perhaps it was a case of being bisexual (62 years of men...) and wording it a bit more notably for the media. I'm not saying the subject is something anyone should ever hide, but it's not something you should walk around sharing. Let's keep intimacy and sexuality intimate. Keep people guessing. Everyone likes a little mystery.
