Singer Miguel lashed out at a radio station that aired a gay parody of his song, "Sure Thing" remixed with homophobic lyrics.
Wednesday morning, a major New York radio station called “The Breakfast Club” on 105.1 FM played a homophobic parody of Miguel’s song “Sure Thing.” NewsOne reports that the lyrics were changed from “You can bet that, you don’t have to sweat that” to “You can bet that, Miguel wants your butt crack,” followed by a voice saying “n*** you’re gay.” It is believed that this parody was created in part because of the recent questioning of Miguel’s sexuality due to his choice of dress.
NewsOne also reports that “the Human Rights Campaign, one of the top LGBT civil rights organizations in the country, released a statement to NewsOne condemning the radio station’s remarks [saying] there’s nothing humorous about homophobia.”
In response to numerous calls for him to step out of the closet, Miguel released a statement saying, “For anyone who questions my sexuality, the honest truth is I love women. I’ve always openly loved women.”
If Miguel says he's not gay, I believe him. Why would he lie in 2011?
