And it makes people think he's gay...
In an interview with The Guardian, Justin Hawkins of The Darkness revealed that he connects to a gay audience, and that's why people think he is gay. Here are highlights:
On if he is gay: "My sexual persuasion is nobody's business but my own – but I'm easily persuaded. Just kidding. Is that a genuine question about my sexuality? I want to go back to that sexuality thing. You reckon I'm gay, don't you? None of your business! It's funny because it came up recently in a German interview. They reckoned that when you Google Justin Hawkins, one of the first things that comes up is: "Is Justin Hawkins gay?" And I'd like to think that's because there's something I do that connects with a gay audience. Maybe it's all the cocks I suck?"
On if his parents are disappointed in his choice of career: "Not at all. They're delighted. Over the moon. My father's a builder and he's worked all his life and he just wanted me and Dan [Hawkins, his guitarist brother] to not have to."
On Lady Gaga: "I'm in awe of Lady Gaga. I love the mystique around her, and the way she's this entity all the time. You never see her without full make-up, or pictures of her going to the supermarket wearing something baggy. She's 100% an artist; a work of art. That's what I aspire to be. She's a hero. So it's going to be weird meeting her. But it's got nothing to do with earnings. "
