I'm currently listening to R.E.M.'s newie Reveal. It's actually quite good (this from someone who thinks REM did one good song.) I was amused to see something about Mr Stipe on Popex today.
Oh no! My world has been turned upside down!
Wanting some free publicity, which oddly coincides with the release of REM's new album, Reveal, Michael Stipe has finally come out of the closet. He tells Time magazine he's a "queer artist" who has been "in a relationship with an amazing man" for the past three years. As the world is taken aback by this startling revelation, Stipe also adds, "I was being made to be a coward about it, rather than someone who felt like it really was a very private thing."
