Meyers: 'Elvis Was Gay'

JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS is convinced ELVIS PRESLEY was homosexual - as he is suspicious of his glitzy wardrobe and maternal attachment. The Irish actor, who played the title role in 2005 TV film ELVIS, has branded the HEARTBREAK HOTEL rocker "the gayest f**king thing on two legs" after time spent researching the star yielded truly camp results. He says, "Anyone who lives with their mama that long and dresses up in that much spangly gold with black lacquer on their eyes has definitely got something going on."

Mr. Meyers, why in the world would you say such a thing about Elvis? Does it make you feel better aboutyourself? You never knew the man. Your comments areridiculous. You will never be what Elvis was to theworld. Never. Your comments were mean-spirited, andhave upset fans all over the world. We know how tospread 'Elvis news'. I'm sure you made a lot of money making that horrible t.v. movie about Elvis. You, also, won an award for it. How about a little respect for the man you (poorly) portrayed? Maybe you have low self-esteem. Maybe you were misquoted. Maybe youneed to apologize to Elvis, and to his fans. I'm Irish. I'm sorry you are.

After a big research AND you find that Elvis was Gay??? What was your degree Meyers? Junior High school? Well.. even kids at the age of 5 they say Elvis is great not because of his clothing but his personality and talent. If they understand it so clealry and YOU CAN ONLY CONCLUDE WITH THAT KIND OF SENTENCE than YOU are one of those who want every people homosexual. By the way I am bisexual aaannnd I say He was f**king THAT STR8.The King is the greatest.

Well seems to me like this 'little man' is showing his jealousy towards Elvis and his legacy...I declare, who is this 'wanna-be' anyways...I can't even remember his name LOL..Don't think he realizes YET who he's dealing with.....hundreds of thousands of loyal Elvis fans from all over the world....Hey fans, let's do it..spread the word...THIS GUY IS A REAL JERK, and no matter how hard he tries, he could never even come close to having the love Elvis had from his many friends and fans..Hey,when this guy dies..will anyone remember him....I think not!!! It is my sincere hope that all Elvis fans bans anything this'DORK' does from now on .. TOGETHER, WE HAVE THE POWER!! So, to all ELVIS fans worldwide....pass the word on, about this 'ARROGANT' person who doesn't even deserve his name being mentioned here....NOW WHAT WAS HIS NAME AGAIN?? We can't remember!! And by the way, I hated him playing Elvis....how bad he was....really, I never understood how he was chosen over all the great guys who 'tried out' for the role of ELVIS....what a mistake!

How dare you, Jonathan! You have a lot of balls coming on here posting assenine comments about someone you don't even know--making false assumptions based on what?? You don't even know yourself. Elvis is and will always be THE most talented, kind, giving, handsome Performer ever to walk the face of this earth--and no one but no one will ever fill his shoes. I am VERY proud to be an Elvis fan--LOVE the man with all my heart--and I carry him with me in my heart wherever I go and whatever I do. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it Mr. Noclue. And by the way--Elvis wasn't gay. Loser.

my two cents's picture

my two cents

Elvis wasn't gay, but he experimented when he was in his late teens. When Colonel Parker learned this, he had Elvis set up with another young man and secretly had photos taken. He held this over Elvis's head his entire life. He blackmailed Elvis and squeezed as much $ out of Elvis as he could. Many young musicians and artists often experiment, it doesn't mean anything. But to be blackmailed over it your entire career must be awful. Imagine having a manager that you despise and is guiding you in all the wrong directions, but there's nothing you can do!

As for Jonathan's comments, this isn't the first time this has been discussed but I believe this young Irishman basically had one too many pints when he said that. I mean, when I first heard of "Bend Like Beckham", I thought it was another Irish "Brokeback Mountain", especially after seeing him in the trailers. Now if Jonathan can take a little more acting lessons from the young man who walked away with Golden Globes for, let's see, "Walk The Line", maybe his future roles as an American would be more convincing. As for Elvis being gay, only Elvis would know that and if this is so and with me being an Elvis Impersonator, I guess I'm gay too. But you know what, Liberace had more class in his little pinkie ring than drunk Irishman Jonathan would have in his entire scrawy body. Cheers mate.

why would you say that jonathan, and i thought jonathans portrayal of Elvis wasnt too bad either.Elvis Presley was not gay.seems to me jonathan should get his facts straight before shouting his mouth off really.it is appalling that he should stoop so low as to say things that arent true, just to gain publicity.im sorry but the respect i gained for mr meyers has dissapeared, i thought you were really nice jonathan how wrong could we be, and you dont have to be a elvis fan to think that either, which i am a proud Elvis fan .julie
