Once again, a no-name celebrity-wannabe puts out something questioning his heterosexualness just to get his name in the press.

Sad story. Too bad people can't just be who they are without others passing judgment.

What difference does it make?

He has been dead for 20 years

Is some crazed necrophiliac planning to dig him up for a happy ending?

Yeah, he was gay and so was his "music"... I mean even southern rap sounds like Mozart in comparison.

Indeed it is. Your comments show you've managed the first two quite nicely. Now get to work on the third.

Well, that all clarifies some of his lyrics. I don't think Kurt was gay, and I couldn't label him a metrosexual either, but perhaps he was queer but heterosexual nonetheless? I have at least one friend I can think of who's like that- very gay acting, somewhat effeminate, identifies with the LGBTQ community, but he likes women. I guess people come in all stripes.

It would be sad to think maybe Kurt was a closeted gay. The logical conclusion therefore is likely he committed suicide for that very reason.

Whatever Cobain's sexual orientation was, that was his business. Let the poor man rest in peace.
