Move over N'Sync, Boyzone had it first. Yes, the British boyband Boyzone featured one of its members having touchy-feely scenes with another male in their new music video for their single entitled "Better". This makes Boyzone the first boyband to include a gay love interest in a music video. Of course, it's Stephen Gately, the Boyzone member who openly admitted that he was gay back in 1999.
While Gately's other band mates Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch, Keith Duffy and Mikey Graham sing to women in the intimate black and white footage, Gately chose to have a male actor to be with him in his scene. In an interview, Gately reasoned out: "For me, it's just me being me and I don't think there should be a real big issue about the whole thing anyway."
Boyzone reunited at the end of last year after being out of the limelight for seven years. They gained fame in the late 1990s with their hit songs like "Love me for a Reason", "No Matter What" and 13 other chart-topping hit singles.

Oh well, we just hope our Pinoy male singers who are in the closet will realize the insanity of pretending who they really are. I don't wanna name names but let's give their initials: P, S, E, W, and J. Go figure!
