Britney Spears Talks Gay Fanbase
She’s always been popular with the GLBT crowd, so when Britney Spears received criticism for calling her gay fans “adorable,” she was a bit perplexed.
The “Toxic” singer told PrideSource, “Wait, what? Who felt the other way? I would never say anything to be mean to them. I love my gay fans. Gay people are always usually my best friends in the whole world. I completely adore them.”
Spears continued, “I get inspiration from [gay fans] on almost all of my songs. They’re somewhat girls, so it’s so inspiring to do stuff that they like to hear, like the cool ‘in’ stuff. Whatever I do for each record is definitely inspired by them.”
As for her new Britney Jean record, Brit declared it’s her gayest album yet.“I would say so, yes. I just feel like it has that feeling. You can’t really put your finger on it. It just really has that feeling of… that.”
And when it comes to the cultural lingo, Spears tries her best to keep up-to-date. “I don’t really know that much. I mean, I hang out with gays all the time. They always surprise me. [Slang] changes weekly, you know?”
