Britney Spears: Gay people are adorable
Pop diva and gay icon Britney Spears has made headlines for saying she likes hanging out with gay people as they are ‘adorable and hilarious’.
The singer made the comments whilst being interviewed on a San Francisco radio show promoting her latest single, ‘Work Bitch’.
Spears said: “A lot of my hair stylists and my beauty team that I work with are gay so I hang out with gays a lot and I just think they’re adorable and hilarious.”
Last month the singer came under fire from queer performer Mykii Blanco. Blanco commented Spears new single was tacky and suggested Spears was attempting to exploit gay culture. She commented: “This is not gay pride it’s gay marketing”.
"Is it just me or is every female pop star currently in a war to secure as many gay fans and gay $ as possible?"Blanco said.
Despite these accusations from Blanco, Spears has long been recognised as a supporter of LGBTI people and in 2011 a poll by the Equality network even went so far as to name Spear the ultimate gay icon.
