Talking to Gay Times magazine about the rumours that one member of the band is gay, Aston says, “We always get the same thing from straight guys. Just because we like to take care of ourselves and get a lot of female attention, they’re first response is ‘you’re gay’.” Marvin agrees, before adding, “We don’t care. We’ve got loads of gay friends anyway. All of mine fancy JB.” Sigh… Does anyone not fancy JB? He’s so cute. In the same interview, the lads also confessed that they’re not big fans of the new live auditions on The X Factor, with Oritsé explaining, “It’s too much like Britain’s Got Talent now,” and Aston saying, “It’s taken the build up away.”
We wonder how JLS would have fared if they’d had to audition to a live audience? We can barely remember what they were like back in the early days now.
