This Rocketman press tour is really giving me more queer-baiting than my gay heart can handle. Seeing lil cute buff alleged hetero, Taron Egerton fall all over himself while talking about how much he loves and supports us gays is really helping me thrive during spring. Like a flower rising from the winter cold, I am being nourished by the homosexual sunshine that is Taron’s need to please us gays. In the current issue of The Hollywood Reporter, Taron is now talking about how kissing dudes is no big deal.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Taron loves kissing guys. He’s been teasing us with some mild homosexual antics for a while, there was even a rumor about him maybe coming out on Instagram that ended up as nothing. But since the Elton John biopic, Rocketman, is coming out soon, that whole queer-baiting shtick has been dialled up to eleven.
Previously, he spoke with GQ about feeling “at home” at the gay bar. Like, yeah duh! Have you ever brought a straight guy to the gay club? They get eaten alive. That’s why I tell my straight brother to stay home: he pulls focus! Well now Taron is really turning up the gay and he’s talking about making out with dudes.
Before Taron talked about making out with Brandon Flynn’s roommate Richard Madden, he talked about going through a bunch of cosmetic changes to look like Elton, including blacking out his teeth to get’s Elton’s gap when a pair of fake teeth pissed off the director who worried Taron wouldn’t speak well with them in his mouth:
“I got quite stressed out about it and I asked the designer, ‘Could we paint the gap in?’ It was a little bit messy, but between that and the visual effects team, that’s how we created the gap.’ ”
Taron also murdered his hairline:
“I spent six months last year with my hairline up here,” he says, pointing to mid-scalp. “It was just horrible. They had to reshave it every day. I looked like Krusty the Clown.”
Krusty the Clown is definitely not gay. Sideshow Bob, on the other hand: Gay.
And Taron is sure to leave us with the reminder that his lips have touched another man’s and when they did, it was the same as when they touch a hot chick’s. Why? Because he is not “repulsed by the male form”. Girl, me either:
“For me, kissing a man onscreen is no less appealing than kissing a woman onscreen. I’m not in any way repulsed by the male form. It’s an uncomfortable thing regardless of who you’re with—it makes no difference as to your sexual preference.”
Next on the queer-baiting Rocketman press tour is Taron releasing an OnlyFans account where he sells us tasteful nudes and jerk off videos for $15 a month.
