Many people still believe that fame comes with responsibility – that you have to be careful with what you say and do because you can never be sure that what you say or do will be recorded and repeated. But, with the help of technology, social media, and the paparazzi, you can truly have it all – you can have the fame and the responsibility without fear of judgement or reprisal. You can even profit from it all!
Nowadays, everyone likes to have a good laugh at the expense of the rich and famous. And one of the best ways to do that is to guess or try to figure out the sexuality of famous people. There are countless questions about the sexuality of famous persons, but sometimes the answers are so obscure that they remain a mystery even to the very people who asked them. Take the example of London-based actor/model/writer/director/musician Robert Pattinson, for instance. For years, fans have been trying to guess whether or not the gorgeous actor is gay. Or as some have theorized, maybe he’s even bisexual?
The actor/model has been a source of fascination for people not only because of his good looks but also because of his multifaceted and varied career. He’s appeared in the films Dirty Money, The Lost City, and the forthcoming Damsel in Distress, opposite Angelina Jolie. Most notably, he played the title character in the most recent adaptation of the bestselling novel The Twilight Saga – Breaking Dawn Part 1. In addition to the big-budget fantasy films, Robert has also starred in numerous low-budget indie films and music videos. You name it, he’s probably done it. But, despite his versatility, he still manages to keep his fans guessing about his sexuality.
The Sexy Lingerie Ball
One of the best places to start if you’re looking to confirm or deny the rumors that swirl around Robert Pattinson is the annual Sexy Lingerie Ball. This is a party that he and his homemates throw to benefit the gay charity Stonewall. The event is a little different from other charity balls in that it costs patrons a million pounds to attend. And this year’s ball was no exception. Robert and his friends had fun with it and it was great to see so many high-profile people supporting a good cause.
The concept behind the Sexy Lingerie Ball is to gather as many beautiful women as possible in pretty little lingerie, which is, of course, supposed to elicit reactions from the opposite sex. It’s a very prestigious and luxurious event, and one that the media has labeled as “one of the most important charity fundraisers of the year.” If you can’t make it, you can at least watch the livestream here. But you have to be quick because tickets to the event are highly sought after.
The Curious Case Of The Engagement
Another place to look for clues as to Robert’s sexuality is his recent engagement. In March of this year, the actor proposed to stylist/makeup artist Victoria Beckham. And just like that, the speculation was over. Many people were shocked that the two had been courting for so long and had kept their engagement a secret. The mystery was finally solved when Victoria revealed the news in a magazine interview.
Rumors about the engagement began circulating a year earlier when Victoria was spotted at a number of events with a diamond ring on her finger. While it’s always nice to see a celebrity partner with a diamond, it’s not necessarily an indication of the person’s sexuality. Anyone can pass off a diamond as a pebble, but it takes a special kind of woman to be able to carry off this sort of deception. So, if you see Victoria wearing a diamond, you can assume that it’s not her real ring but rather a jeweled facsimile. And if you’re a fan of the fashionable and classy Victoria Beckham, then you’ll be pleased to know that she continues to keep the good people of London guessing about her sexuality. It’s the perfect way to keep in touch with her fans.
Besides guessing about the sexuality of famous people, people often wonder if certain celebrities are dating or going to date each other. This is particularly popular when two or more famous individuals are linked together, whether through friendship or family. But, while the tabloids and magazines may print stories speculating about the romantic relationships of popular people, the individuals involved usually have something to say about the rumors. And since we have their permission to publish their statements, we can reveal that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have repeatedly said that they are not a couple. Just to reiterate, being linked to a celebrity does not mean that you’re automatically dating them. It’s not always as easy as it seems. Sometimes the couple or group of individuals involved will deny or dismiss the rumors. But, other times, they’ll go on the record to say that they’re not together. It really depends on the nature of the relationship and how much the individuals want to keep their privacy.

Sometimes fans will speculate about the sexuality of celebrities just to see how many ‘correct’ answers they can get. For instance, the question “Is George Michael gay?” has been asked more than any other celebrity in recent history. According to the results of a Twitter poll published by BuzzFeed News, the most popular answer to this question is “Yes.” But, in reality, George Michael is gay, and he’s been open about it for years. Another Twitter poll released by BuzzFeed News found that more than half of the respondents believe that Robert Pattinson is bisexual. But, to this day, the actor has never disclosed any details about his private life to promote his work. So, it’s likely that the percentage of people who think that he’s bi is much higher than the actual number of individuals who believe he’s secretly dating or sleeping with both women and men. If you want to know more about Robert Pattinson’s private life, you’ll have to keep guessing.
In some cases, fans will try to figure out a celebrity’s sexuality based on their appearance. If a male celebrity has full or largely hairless lips, some people will speculate that he’s heterosexual and is hiding his true sexuality. Conversely, if a female celebrity has full or largely covered lips, some people will assume she’s gay and are often disappointed when she reveals that she’s actually heterosexual. These are the sorts of things that people think and say, but it’s really not that straightforward. A lot of thinking goes into these sorts of things, and a lot of assumptions. We’re always left guessing, which is, of course, part of the fun.
Thanks to social media and the paparazzi, the public now has the opportunity to follow the lives of their favorite celebrities quite closely. This has, in some cases, led to the uncovering of important details about the individuals’ personal lives that they would’ve preferred to keep private. Because of this, fans should be careful about reading too much into a celebrity’s public behavior, appearances, and statements. Sometimes a celebrity’s true desires and desires for privacy are blurred by the media spotlight.
It’s always fun to guess about the sexuality of famous people, and, in many cases, it’s not far from the truth. But, in some instances, the public’s curiosity about a celebrity’s sexual orientation or gender can lead them to believe false things simply because they don’t know any better. So, while it’s okay to wonder about a celebrity’s sexuality, it’s not okay to assume that you know what the answer is just because you don’t approve of their lifestyle choices. A lot of thinking goes into these types of things, and it would be wise to refrain from making any hasty judgements simply because you don’t understand something about a celebrity. We’ll always have Paris, but let’s not forget about the rest of the world, too.
