Watch: Jessica Lowndes "I Wish I Was Gay"

By: Jase Peeples

More than a few gays and lesbians will admit they’ve wished they could be straight at one point or another, but it isn’t often we hear a heterosexual person longing for the urges of an attraction to the same sex.

90210 star Jessica Lownde's new single “I Wish I Was Gay” reveals a different kind of desire that’s sure to raise a few eyebrows.

The lyrics paint a picture of gay relationships in a way that isn’t seen often enough in the media. Though gay relationships are truthfully every bit as complicated as their straight counterparts, it’s refreshing to see an artist use a same-sex romance as her fairy tale standard.

With videos like this and Simone Battle’s “He Likes Boys” could we be witnessing the emergence of a new queer era in pop music?
