This week the web started crawling with the idea that actress Raven Symone came out as a lesbian. It’s a tangled web of rumors that looks to have started with a National Enquirer story claiming that she’s currently living with another woman.
As we all know, the Internet thrives on gay rumors. Just look at this John Travolta story. We can’t stop talking about the masseurs he may or may not have molested.
Our constant need to know who is gay and who is straight and who is in the closet and who is out is like some kind of sick addiction. So America, as a country, we should probably fixate on something else. Something that is more “our business,” like the economy or birth control access.
Two days ago Out reported:
According to an excerpt of a report obtained by MediaTakeOut, The National Enquirer claims: “Sources close to Raven say she’s GAY and has shacked up with AzMarie Livingston, the androgynous beauty seen on America’s Next Top Model. The two are living together in Raven’s luxury $11,00-a-month New York City condo. She’s at a point now where she doesn’t care what her family thinks, and she’s in love with AzMarie. She’s a lesbian and wants to live that way.”
And today Raven responded to those rumors via Twitter. She didn’t confirm or deny anything, just remind everyone that her personal life is none of their business. Amen Raven, you keep shining on in Sister Act on Broadway and reminding us why we’re still saying, “that’s so Raven!”
