X-Factor contestant Joe McElderry announced he is gay: ..I have always been a very honest person and so it is important for me to continue to be honest. It has been the most amazing year so far and I feel so privileged. It’s also been a time of real self realisation, I feel as if I have grown up so much in these few months.
There has been speculation about my sexuality in the past I have always been honest at the time I have been asked. Over the past few weeks I have really had time to reflect and to realise who I am. I spoke to my friends and family about this in the last few days and it was important to do the same for you all as you have been so supportive.
I have had nothing but support from you and many of you have been very open in saying you will continue to support me whatever my sexuality. It is important to me to let you know first, so that you know the stories in the papers are true. I made the choice to speak openly about this.

Are you HAPPY or MAD that he was booted? Tim Urban chatted with MTV: What would you say to your critics who thought you only lasted as long as you did because of your good looks and charisma? Oh, wow. I don't think that I would respond to that. It seems that people just like to take somebody and then find something that they don't like about them and talk about it. I get that.
It's part of dealing with the industry. It's part of being in the spotlight. So people are going to say that, but people are going to say that about pretty much anybody. You'll find people that don't like any artist out there, and so you have to deal with it, shrug it off. I don't perform for the people who don't like me; I perform for the people who want me to be onstage, so those are the people that I try to worry about. On VoteForTheWorst.com backing him:
I'm not excited that I was on their website. I think that it's really not anything that anybody should be proud of. I really didn't like being on there, and basically I was working my hardest to get off of it. Yes, I'm actually kind of sad that I was on that website at all.
