Will Young told: ‘You sound too gay’
WILL YOUNG says the music industry is filled with ‘homophobia and bigotry’ after claiming one boss demanded he
re-record one of his biggest hits because he ‘sounded gay’.
The 39-year-old, who has largely left music to study, was referring to 2003’s Leave Right Now when he told The Telegraph: ‘Someone at the record company said I “sounded gay” and kept making me re-record the track.
‘There’s a real flavour to homophobia and bigotry. It’s really shaming. People don’t understand the power of language.’
