Oh Taylor….

Taylor on Fox & Friends this morning….

*He likes Andrew Garcia…
*He never thought he would be a star on Broadway…
*People yell Soul Patrol during his performance…

And yes, it’s deja vu…the backspin returns.

  1. That interview was what? 3 minutes?? I’m drunk as hell…

  2. Loved his clothes. He looked good and was the Taylor people remembered from AI. Glad he had a chance to be seen on Fox. Hope some conservatives check out his music. Kat has been everywhere on TV and is performing in Balto. and around the country. Surely people would rather see Taylor on their tvs then Kat.

  3. Esp. Kat with blonde hair. That girl was amazingly beautiful, and she ruined by going blonde!

  4. omg, Freckles…I’m drunk, too. That didn’t take much!! I’m telling you, he could make a killing off of that game!!

  5. taylorfan06 Says:

    one more bartender… *hiccups*

  6. I thought he looked great. National exposure. Showed clips from WATW. Pimped him as a successful AI alumni. I think this was WIN WIN for him. Just part of good PR. Reminded people about him. Let them hear what he’s been doing, showed a glimpse of him on the Grease stage and on the concert stage plus a little live Harp. LOL. Showed how personable he is and what a good sport to do a little back spin. The news people loved him and I bet the audience at home did too.

  7. Ange Bleu Says:

    Very good interview. He never looked better. But why NY? Does this have any significance? These things are usually set up by a third party for a reason. Is he signed to do another play??? Or did someone just want him to have the exposure being interviewed in NY would generate.

  8. BabyDoll Says:

    I was hoping for an announcement, but I guess this is the regular Grease PR, but pumped up cause it’s close to NY City. I wish they had showed The Distance cover. Surprised he is not mentioning he is in the last few months of the tour, so maybe more people would run out and get tickets.
    I think he himself looks really good, but I like the black vest and shirt he’s been sportin’ better than the green coat and plaid shirt for St. Patrick’s day. Sure didn’t communicate his new Image he’s developed since Season Five.
    But you could tell these interviewers LOVED HIM!!!!

  9. spinshack Says:

    Ahahaha He was playing the game. Only thing missing, WOOO! and left lean…

  10. casualfan Says:

    If enough peeps tweet him about it, he may bring back the WOOO and left lean thing. The SP seems to love that. Taylor should start his SP shout outs again and wearing his black hair tie on the wrist. With all the Taylor Hicks comparisons going on with AI this season, a little nostalgia would be interesting.

  11. taylorfan06 Says:

    As long as the music AND entertainment continues, I don’t care what he does. Taylor is Taylor and he’ll “do what he do”. I “get” him and support him. Obviously, the “work” is helping to support him. It’s not that complicated. *walks off soapbox*

  12. hicksaholic Says:

    I think Taylor does have a few surprises for us, at least I’m hoping so. I didn’t really care for the clothes, just looks so different than what he seems to like but he looks great. He damn sure knows how to work a crowd.

  13. casualfan Says:

    He damn sure knows how to work a crowd.
    ===========================================
    That he does.

  14. taylorfan06 Says:

    DAMN! I was just watching TH on youtube at the Workplay last September. For those of you worried about him NOT keeping it “all about the music”, check out those videos (in the wide screen format). WOW! WOW! WOW! It’s definitely also all “about the entertainment”.

    The man delivers in spades! as hickaholic just said, “He damn sure knows how to work a crowd.” She took the words out of my mouth.

    Those performances really got me charged to see him again. It can’t be soon enough!

    Also check out the recent video from the tv guide channel, “where are they now” (ai special). Taylor is very represented and it’s a great, positive piece including everything. Check it out peeps!!!

  15. Fairhope Says:

    Okay. I saw pink underwear. I swear I saw pink underwear!

  16. casualfan Says:

    LOL-FH you are a hoot!

  17. taylorfan06 Says:

    Taylor from this morning. He’s looking great! Handsome as hell!

    http://twitpic.com/190pt0

  18. I think Taylor has colored his hair. It looks less gray/white.

  19. Love that last pic. Very GQ!

    As far as his hair. I thought it looked darker on the “Where are they Now” show but on the news this morning it was shiny white. So, I’m guessing it’s all in the lighting as to how light or dark it looks.

  20. Oh, thank the good Lord for no whoos or left leans! Oh yeah, I am drunk as Hell on the “I’m so glad to be a “star” on Broadway! Whaaaaat??? Is this the new “grace the Broadway stage?” I truly think he’s a talented guy, but I think having given myself several months of “air” from blogs has given me a new perspective. Still love this site the best IAG!

  21. taylorfan06 Says:

    I don’t think T has colored his hair. Lighting makes the difference. Bottom line: look at that handsome face. T seems real happy and confident. His life is good. He makes my life better.

  22. taylorfan06 Says:

    momo – if you see him in Grease, you will see that he is a (shining) “star” on Broadway. The crowds loves him AND so do the critics. His performance is fun and great. Just what you’d expect from Taylor. Bravo to him!

  23. casualfan Says:

    but I think having given myself several months of “air” from blogs has given me a new perspective.
    ============================================
    LOL! It is wonderful isn’t it?

  24. casualfan Says:

    I don’t think he did anything to his hair either. Lighting can be a tricky thing. That hair is T’s “headlight” and I can’t imagine him doing anything to it.

  25. casualfan Says:

    TF6-I have to tell you that you are one of the few peeps that I actually enjoy see getting all worked up over Taylor-and I mean that in a good way. You usually don’t over speculate, you cheerfully take whatever Taylor has to give and you fully enjoy him. You don’t seem to have an agenda other than being a dedicated fan. I do applaud you for your dedication and perseverance.

    On another note…no doubt Taylor will be pumping up his interviews and appearances with the media these last few months of Grease and taking advantage of AI being on which gives him additional exposure. I’m sure he wants to end Grease with a bang so that his name will stay positively on the tongues of the movers and shakers that will hopefully guide him onto his next journey.

  26. taylorfan06 Says:

    Thanks cf. I’ll take the kind words.

    I do believe in Taylor, I enjoy him, and have no problem gushing over him.

    Ever since the first time I saw him in concert, my view of him changed so much. He was light years away from what I saw on AI. I mean I really enjoyed him on the show, but getting away from that persona, I just saw someone unleashed and i LOVED it!

    He was born to perform and he knows it. Watching those youtube videos from Workplay earlier today just brought back all the passion and heart i remembered and IT’S STILL THERE. I just know i’m in for the long haul and I wish T all the best to survive in this crazy music biz.

  27. hicksaholic Says:

    Bringing up Workplay makes me wish he’d do another show there or even a couple of shows after the Grease run. The regulars(that includes me) would be there. It’s a great venue.

  28. Snowstorm Says:

    You are delusional if you think he’s getting tons of exposure on his lastest rounds of promo interviews. Fact is, nobody cares except his fans.

    Did anyone see his latest interview where he tries to explain Whomp? Is he that dumb not to realize what a huge failure Whomp was? The DVD project should have been dropped ages ago, along with the Whomp moniker. What is wrong with this guy? I can’t imagine all the $$ he’s lost on the project. When something fails, it needs to be dropped.. pronto!

  29. Haven’t come around lately, but stopped in as AI is everywhere in the media right now.
    As I was reading the past few day’s blogs, I saw the prediction of the end of AI, due to the judges being wacked out this year and Paula/Simon leaving as well as the lackluster talent.

    Here is the kicker on that prediction….once AI is gone, so is any hope of further national exposure for Taylor.

    Opportunities to be interviewed nationally, such as this one at Fox will be no longer available to him, because once Idol goes, there goes any rememberance of why he was famous at all. I was actually surprised to see this interview, other than it being Fox’s network.

    Time is critical NOW for Taylor to get a solid direction that will take him nationally on his own…because once Idol is over, his gravy train of Idol-related PR is off the trail for him.

    That is a “duh” conclusion, but is what I was thinking when watching that clip….Taylor is fortunate to still have that stage and hopefully can do something with it while it still exists.

    (One more thing..I have enjoyed the heck out of the nostalgia videos, they were great….I miss Taylor…)

  30. Snowstorm Says:

    suze, is absolutely correct. Idol has been a platform for him, as well as all the Idols who have appeared on the show, but once Idol is over with, so is Taylor Hicks career, unless he can manage something that will make him interesting. I will bet any kind of money that next year is the last season for Idol, so time is not on Hicks side.

    On a side note, this is probably one of the most dullest seasons ever on Idol. Crystal is by far, the most talented, however the music she wants to do is not commercial. Talent will only carry you so far. Crystal and Taylor are cut from the same cloth.

  31. casualfan Says:

    Non-commercial success doesn’t always add up to non-successful. It all depends on how one defines successful. 😉

  32. Snowstorm Says:

    Don’t delude yourself. Non-commercial means you don’t have enough fans to sustain a career.

    The good news is Taylor is going country, which he should have done in the first place, so that’s a step in the right direction.

  33. “Non-commercial success doesn’t always add up to non-successful.”

    WELL SAID CF. A LOT of non-radio played musicians can attest to that. I think Taylor is doing his best to lay a foundation for a continuing career.
    I have no doubt that he will have one. The only question will be at what level his career will go to or stop at.

  34. taylorfan06 Says:

    Thank you for your sane perspective cf.

    I’ll stop with that to avoid any potential drama here.

  35. taylorfan06 Says:

    Oh, yeah. Happy St.Patrick’s Day everyone! The operative word is “happy.” A toast to green beer today. Cheers!!

  36. casualfan Says:

    Same to you TF6! I had some cornbeef and cabbage with red potatoes and it was YUMMY! =)

    ==============================================
    Snow-I’m in no way delusional on anything and never have been…at least not T related.

    Sounds like you need to start looking past the VH1-MTV mode of thinking and into what really defines success. The musical highway is cluttered with One Hit Wonders who had commerical success only to find themselves unloved and unsuccessful as they fell off the charts. To Taylor’s credit, it appears that he’s trying to establish himself for the long-haul and not necessarily into the main stream of commercialism. He’s comfortable, he has money and he seems happy…to me that adds up to “success” Commercial success by today’s standards is highly over-rated.

    The only gripe I’ve had with Taylor is the non existance of the music but as some have said….we never know what is in the cards for him in the upcoming months. Snow doesn’t have the answers either. 😉

  38. casualfan Says:

    Dee-I totally agree with that. There is a musican named Ernie Halter who my roommate is very fond of. He’s an Independent artist, does his own management, handles his own bookings, has his own label. He travels all over the country and in other countries playing small venues. You don’t hear him on the radio but by his terms he is highly successful even without the limo’s, the 5 star hotels and the media hounds. It’s all a matter of perception.

  39. Snowstorm Says:

    CF, you have absolutely no clue if Hicks is comfortable, has money and is happy – you don’t know ANY of these things. All you know is what you see and hear. So, you think Hicks is going to talk about how unhappy he is that America rejected his whomp/elevator soul/AC CRAP and how he made barely any money off his recordings?? Of course not!! He will always say how everything is just peachy keen, even if it’s not.

  40. hicksaholic Says:

    Did y’all read Taylor told a Popeater blogger he would totally date Kate Gosselin. Said he always wanted 9 kids.
    Funny,huh?

  41. Apparently Hicks was tweeting last night that he finally ‘got it’ and going to add people… we’ll see if that rolls through. lol So far the only ones he’s adding are other celebrities.

  42. Um, seriously?

    • American Idol winner Taylor Hicks gives us a peek into how pathetic life is after Idol by announcing that he would like to date certifiable female douchebag, Kate Gosselin. (Popeater)

  43. Another funny remark from Taylor. He made the N.Y. papers. He is way far from desparate, he hasn’t even performed shirtless, hasn’t stuffed his pants like some idols, hasn’t had a scandal, gotten a tat, or even pierced an ear.

  44. I disagree that next year will be the last year of AI. It leads in the ratings and for sure has a least 3 more yrs left. Then after 12 seasons, they can pit the 12 top 5 contestents. The winner of that gets to compete against the 12 top 4, and that winner goes aginst the 12 top 3. In the end they have the all time AI champ. Hmmm, maybe I should have my idea copyrighted, so I’ll be a rich old lady.

  45. Snowstorm Says:

    Sunny, there’s no way he’s going to start following fans. Even he knows that most of them are cray cray and old enough to be his mom or grannie.

    He wants to date Kate Gosselin? Even if he said this tougue-in-cheeck, this is vomit-inducing. What is this guy thinking? So pathetic. He’ll say anything to get attention.

    “look at the people around you

    autobiographical? relevant today? YES!

  48. Those peeps are only stabbing him with rubber play knives. The Tay/Kate thing has been picked up by several newpapers around the country and Ok magazine and the AI blogs. Some people believe Taylor really wants to date her. Don’t laugh, “Taylor Smart”.

  49. LOL. OK Magazine site has a great picture of Taylor along with that quote. LOL. Taylor’s a riot!

  50. taylorfan06 Says:

    No loving the gossip shit!

  51. taylorfan06 Says:

    that’s NOT loving…

  52. taylorfan06 Says:

    My favorite part of the PopEater article:

    “Taylor is currently breaking theater box office records around the country starring in ‘Grease’ and doing the one thing that all the other Idols seem to have forgotten about — performing live.”

  53. Ange Bleu Says:

    As sincere, or insincere, as it may have been, the “Dating Kate” thing has been getting Taylor more mainstream media publicity than he’s had in years.

  54. taylorfan06 Says:

    Another great PopEater quote:

    “There’s one person who probably won’t be getting an invite — the talented ‘Idol’ winner Taylor Hicks, who told me: “I feel sorry for anyone who becomes Mrs. Cowell.”

    I agree with Taylor 100%!

  55. Ange Bleu Says:

    Just type in Taylor Hicks & Kate Gosselin on any search engine (especially Bing) and see what you come up with. Surprising.

  56. The pop eater guy likes Taylor and since Tay has been doing Grease, the majority of local press have said how nice and down to earth he is. Having that good will and working his ass off will pay off in the long run. I have no doubt he will make his mark in a new and even better way, long before AI ends its run.

  57. taylorfan06 Says:

    I agree with Rosie 100%

  58. Ange Bleu: Don’t forget the Jonas Brothers remark that showed up everywhere too for days. LOL

  59. taylorfan06 Says:

    Taylor’s got the charm, not to mention the talent, to keep his name alive out there.

    How do you like that one, cf? The fandom continues…

    =============================================
    Hahaha-TF6 not sure if you are being sarcastic towards me or not, but I do agree that Taylor has the charm and wit. 😉

  61. casualfan Says:

    I don’t think Taylor made that comment about Kate to get his name spread all over the place. The media always goes after anything to do with Kate because she provides drama baggage.

  62. casualfan Says:

    The most news worthy news of the day is Taylor’s work with Habitat For Humanity. He’s done this before and seems to really enjoy the manual labor and truly making a difference in someone’s life. Now THIS IS the Taylor Hicks that I enjoy reading about. Job well done Taylor!

  63. I totally agree CF…the work done for Habitat for Humanity is what I like to read about as well..the KG thing was, I’m sure. was an off the cuff joke..nothing serious ..but the work for the good of others..now that’s NEWS.Thanks Taylor and all the other generous people giving from their hearts for this family.

  64. taylorfan06 Says:

    cf- no sarcasm intended. just a post showing the fan i am. gaaaaaaaa!
    Love the boy!

  65. casualfan Says:

    He has his good points. =)

  66. hicksaholic Says:

    I agree with you , Rosie. I think something good is on the horizon for Mr. Hicks. May not be music related however.

  67. taylorfan06 Says:

    I think there will be more music from our Mr. Hicks. And even a tour.
    This will lead to continued spots on tv and radio. I’d love to see more acting as well. Our “entertainer” will keep us informed. Patience is definitely required with this guy. I’ll be waiting….

  68. mamaforpeace Says:

    Final 6 on AI Rewind. All better than anybody this year so far. I must say, this was not one of Taylor’s best week. I thouhgt Elliot, Paris, and Chris were great. Sorry… a bit of nostalgia!

  69. mamaforpeace Says:

    And poor Taylor, he always looks so uptight during interviews! Maybe the only place he truly feels comfortable is on stage.

  70. taylorfan06 Says:

    TAYLOR HICKS mentioned in article.

    I was reading the Orange County Reister paper this morning and there was a review of a Stephen Still concert from a few nights ago that was not too positive. The reviewer was saying how he sounded unrehearsed and not in good voice. He got some flak from readers and mentioned in the article that he’d give Stephen another shot at tonight’s concert at the Grove in Anaheim (my first TH concert – nice venue).

    I had to laugh at one of the paragraphs in the article: “Frankly, I’d be happy to pay $40-$50 just to hear him play for two hours. But only if he agreed to let, say Joan Osborne, or heck, TAYLOR HICKS sing all his stuff – and only if he (Stills) promised to practice ahead of time.”

    That really made me laugh and I thought it would interesting to post here. I’d love to hear Taylor cover a song or two of Stephen Stills – “long May You Run” or “Love The One You’re With” – I know Taylor could do them justice.

    After reading the article, I was curious to see if the reviewer was male or female. I found it curious that a male had written the review. To reference Taylor in the article put a smile on my face. The guy made a good choice there IMO.

  71. taylorfan06 Says:

    wow – it was a quiet day here…

  72. Ange Bleu Says:

    Guess Sunday is a very slow day. Even the message board at TH Community is down and no one seems aware.

  73. It may be that people are following the health bill news which is being voted on today, (I know I am).

  74. Oliver Me Too. I’d feel much better if Obama and all Politicians were required to use the healthcare plan they pass. LOL.

  75. mamaforpeace Says:

    Actually if this passes, we will finally be able to have health care that is much closer to what all members of congress have enjoyed for years.

  76. Mama, I disagree. More government control is a bad thing and this will be costly and we will end up with worse health care.

  77. casualfan Says:

    =============================================
    Months ago I would have agreed with you mfp. I have several close friends who work in the health insurance spectrum and after hearing what they had to say I’m having serious doubts about this so called health care reform. This bill is not a quick fix and the health care situation is going to get much worse before it gets better. IMO-the government should fix the problems that they already have before they invent new ones.

  78. casualfan Says:

    HEALTH CARE BILL PASSED!

  79. Damn, but I am not surprised the bill passed.

  80. mamaforpeace Says:

    Raising my glass to Teddy Kennedy and all the democrats who finally had the guts to pass this bill! We are not anymore the only industrialized country without health care!!!

  81. casualfan Says:

    I agree MFP but we have many, many pitfalls to overcome if this reform is going to work. I’m in the ranks of the uninsured and battle a very serious disease myself but I don’t want for this bill to provide a mire band-aid for my health problems. I want a long term solution that will meet my needs in the long run-as the case with millions of other Americans. I’m not sold on this being the solution.

  82. hicksaholic Says:

    cf,
    You have to walk before you can run. I doubt anybody is 100% happy with the bill but I hope it is a step in the right direction.

    I feel sure though there will be a lot of finger pointing after the fact if everything is not perfect. But the reality is I don’t see how we could have continued with health care the way it currently is.

  83. casualfan Says:

    Hickaholic, I agree with what you are saying. There will indeed be finger pointing on both sides. I’m certainly not expecting for anything to be perfect with this, but I do expect that all parties find a solution and make this much needed reform work. It’s not all up to the government. The health care industry also needs to change the way they do business and work with the system and not against it. That includes the insurance companies, Doctors all the way down to the pharmacies.

  84. mamaforpeace Says:

    CF, totally agree, there is a long way to go to make this work for all Americans. There has to be some way to control cost. But I think this is a very good beginning indeed. Walk before we can run indeed.

  85. Being Canadian I have had health care all my life…It is not perfect but it is fair. All people can be treated in any hospital…..it’s expensive but caring for the health of a country can never be cheap. Our taxes are higher but if we become ill we don’t have to worry about our life’s saving being wiped out. No it’s not perfect..but anytime me or a member of my family has needed care I am damn glad to have it.

  86. mamaforpeace Says:

    And I think that is what people in the US will eventually realize. Having be raised in France, the concept of no health care never made sense to me. You always end up paying for it one way or another. The question is, do we want to be a countruy that takes care of its people when they are the most vulnerable?

  87. taylorfan06 Says:

    Politics? Can we talk Taylor? Please.

  88. hicksaholic Says:

    Does this qualify…..what’s does this health care bill mean for Taylor Hicks?

  89. hicksaholic Says:

    Sorry what not what’s

  90. taylorfan06 Says:

    well if mouth to mouth is ever required, i’ll volunteer for that…
    …or checking for a hernia…. a prostate exam?….
    LOL

  91. I could get into way more trouble posting about health care than Taylor, since I have strong opinions about health care. On one of the habitat photos Tay looked like he has quite a tummy. He should get into shape for his next adventure, but his longer hair style looks great. I volunteer to give him a whole body visual scan to check for skin cancer and since he is in the age range for testicular cancer, I’ll check out his balls. lol

  92. taylorfan06 Says:

    rosie, you little minx you. but not if i get there first. hee hee hee

  93. Soul lost and found Says:

    Taylor was in a Gay bar in NYC! with that gossip blogger!!!!!!! Dancing? The Townhouse , page six had it. Why!!!!

  94. Speaking of AI and Taylor, I want to repeat that I think Suze and Snow were wrong about the demise of Idol. The show was a phenom. It could go on with way above average ratings for several more yrs. Then it could take a 3 yr break and come back strong. Simon will be missed as was the original 3 judges combo, but in reality it was the contestents an the idea that America gets to vote. Simons other show, The Factor, does not seem to be as American. But since we’ve seemed to have taken a turn towards European health care, high taxes and socialism, and thinking others, the government and judges know more than we as individuals know what is best, who knows. Bottom line is Tay won on AI’s biggest year, stood out as a personality and is way more memorable then just as a singer. The fact is when he did not get radio play and double platinum sales, he made his mark on Broadway, when so many could not. I’m hoping he gets a chance to strut all his talents and charisma on TV sometime in 2010. If not then I’ll bet on and be pleased by another Broadway show.

    huh? Page six of what? What Townhouse and what blogger? LOL! Guess I’m behind on the Tay newz….

  96. Soul lost and found, where is the proof. Do you mean Mr. pop eater who reported that Tay said he’d totally date K.G.? Taylor Hicks, is not meeting up with gossip bloggers and columnists in gay bars and dancing with men. What is page six? Have you heard of yellow journalism, desparate rags or idle gossip?

  97. casualfan Says:

    Good God! Lots of straight people go to gay bars so get over it. NONE of us knows what Taylor does during his down time or who he meets with.

  98. Fairhope Says:

    Finally! Some juicy gossip! From the uber conservative girl, from an uber conservative county, from an uber conservative state…those who want socialized medicine need to move to France or Canada…THE END!!

  99. casualfan Says:

    There seems to be a lot of socialization going on in this country lately. Now the government is taking over all the student loans which will drive up bank fees for us. The banks will loose millions of dollars and who do you think will pay for that? If you have a bank account, you are screwed. I’m beginning to see my Grandpa’s view on banks….”keep all your money under your mattress and get a big black dog to lay on it with a shotgun next to the bed.”

    Taylor in a gay bar? bfd. they can be lots of fun. Nice place. I’ve been there myself.

  102. CF are you responding to my post or slaf’s? The pop eater guy posted ahead of time he was having drinks with his friend Taylor H. Slaf seemed upset about Tay supposedly being in a gay bar, dancing and that he was with a gossip blogger. If Hicks went to gay bars on a regular basis and chose such spots to meet with press peeps and then danced his ass off in front of the regular patrons, it would news. This was not, and thus to answer her concerns, I suggested trash type gossip. Fairhope, the strong armed health care bill sucks. America used to be a power and solvent. The debt of our country and the socialistic philosphy of the current ptb will destroy America.

  103. Checked it out. The Townhouse is an upscale gay bar, with great talent catering to older well dressed men. On Mar. 18th, Tay was spotted having a drink with the flamboyant P. E. blogger, Rob Shuter. Once again Mr. Hicks proves he is ballsy as to where, whom and what he says. The End.

  104. casualfan Says:

    It’s a good thing for Taylor that The Townhouse is an upscale bar that caters to the upper class so that makes it acceptable. If The Townhouse would have been a seedy lower class establishment it would have been dismissed as idol gossip and yellow journalism.

    ***shakes head***

    And really? Why the hell should we care if Taylor is gay? If he were, which I have no idea if he is or not and don’t care, but if he were, would that mean he would be less of an artist? Would you stop buying his cds, go to his concerts? Would it change the way you feel about him?

  106. Once again CF, what does it matter? My point was if Tay frequents such places often and is seen dancing with other men, then that is newsworthy. It could mean he is gay and into the scene. This report by pop eater gossip guy, was reported in the press as Tay would date Kate, an obvious joke on his part. No need to shake your head. No need for SLAF to fret. Should anyone want to consider Hicks gay they will. Most do not and this meeting was non newsworthy, except the few blurbs about his quote about K.G. I merely checked out the establisment.

  107. casualfan Says:

    Going to gay bars does not make a person gay. I’ve done my share of the gay bar scene when I was about T’s age and I’m straight. Those types of bars are really fun and everyone can be themselves and get into the music. Gay clubbing really has nothing to do with sex. Most of these peeps are looking for campanionship or a straight up good time-no pun intended.

    Taylor’s music and his talent has nothing to do with his sexuality.

    Once again CF, what does it matter?
    ===========================================
    It seems to matter to you Rosie. I’m not the one who checked out the social status of that club then came back to report on it.

  109. Mama, While no one should care if Taylor is gay, the fact some hint he is has become tiresome and lame, IMO. Reality is reality. Nothing in his past or present even hints at gay. Quite the opposite.

  110. casualfan Says:

    then that is newsworthy.
    =========================================
    It’s only newsworthy to this fandom Rosie. The rest of the free world could care less.

  111. Okay, girls…I made a new post just for this very topic.

    Feel free to post on the new one.

  112. taylorfan06 Says:

    “straight up good time” – good one cf.

    “Taylor’s music and his talent has nothing to do with his sexuality.”
    another good one cf

    you are on a (kaiser) roll – that was my poor attempt at a pun.

  113. casualfan Says:

    Nothing in his past or present even hints at gay
    ============================================
    All you know is what you have read in the media or what your fangirly friends believe. Truth is none of us know to be fact what T’s sexual preference is. He may swing it in all types of ball parks and we will never know. 😉

  114. OH my! CF, I think you love me, respect my opinion and read whatever I post. It is true I checked out the club and reported what I read. Sounds like a fun time in the City. My comments were meant to state the same thing. Going to a gay club does not mean one is gay, yet Soul lost seemed upset and mama seems defensive. Taylor could care less, as he knows who he is. Being real, when I read the guys comments posted on the BB, I thought he meant Tay drank him under the table, and stated the same. Isn’t it fitting that Hicks meet people in and upscale Club?

  115. casualfan Says:

    Actually Rosie, I think T is more comfortable in a low light, low rent district blues club myself. He thrives with his music in those places. That club doesn’t fit him…maybe business wise but not personality wise.
