    I've heard this for years, that he came out of the closet. What's the truth?

    I must say that he is so much hotter from when he was a kid all the way back when. What happened?

    Did anyone catch him at the Macy's Day Parade today? It got Rick Rolled. lmao.

    Any hot pix?

    Whether or not he is out of the closet doesn't matter. The man is gay as a picnic basket! :lmao: Saw him in the parade and was thrown for a minute because his hair was so dark. He used to be a redhead.

    Saw him in the parade too and noted his hair looked "different". Not only dark but looked like a wig.

    I've known several redheads that seem to change their shade/color over the years.

    off the top of my head:
    My cousin was blond when we were kids. late teens to about ten years ago, he was bright red, and now has dark red hair.

    Someone I went to school with went the opposite way. dark red young, lightened up over the years, and ran into him recently and couldn't place him at first as his hair is now a dusty blonde.

    Another guy I've known a few years now seems to be getting lighter as well.


    as for Astley, I missed the parade, but is Macy's that out of touch that they really don't know he's really only known for being the musical source of "Rick Rolled"? One Hit Wonder, much?

    well i've been ahead of the curve on some things, behind the curve on this one.

    sounds like its about time getting "wanda rolled" should replace getting "rick rolled".

    Rick Astley is not gay. He is a family guy with a daughter. His dark hair is just an image change to go with the recent boost to his career. Rickrolling started in March 2007 & was re-ignited on April Fools day this year when Youtubes front page videos were hijacked by his video. He has an amazing voice, deep & rich sounding.

    There's videos of him at 17 when he first came out. His voice is so deep. I like to imagine him having low hanging balls! lol. Yum!

    Rick Astley is THE bomb. If it weren't for that Stock/Aitken/Waterman jam. There wouldn't be Kylie Minogue. Stock/Aitken/Waterman...those producers were the British Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.

    I thought that he was really cute though back in the day. That Rick Astley "Roll" dance was funny (the one he did in the actual "NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP" video.)

    :smile: I was always a big fan of all that "awesome" 80's music.
    He was/is one of my favorites. His voice is amazing - so strong and clear.
    Always wondered why he didn't make it bigger here in the states.
    I would like to have heard more from him.

    He is not gay, he's married and has a kid.

    I know this because my mom freaked out when she saw him on tv today. She thinks he's just sooooo cute. Anyway, so then she had to look him up online and tell me everything about him.

    Yeah. Very much so. I liked when those Muppets on that float were like WTF? When that record ripscratch came and interrupted that GROOVY GHOULIES-esque song and segued into NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP. THAT was some funny shit. And Rick Astley came out of the closet and started singing that 80's jam.

    Jeff Dunham would've had fun with that. Hehehe.

    Honestly, I thought that Rick Astley was gay until I saw him dance in that video...and then I saw a gay guy at the club dance like David Byrne. Hehehe. There are gay men who cannot dance.

    Obviously you must be too young to remember he was one of the biggest recording artists in the world in the late 80's. He had five Top 10 hits on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, including back-to-back #1's with his first two singles, "Never Gonna..." and "Together Forever," as well as a handful of other smaller hits.

    Hardly a one hit wonder, his songs are still staples on retro and AC radio and his recordings have sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. He's married and has one daughter.

    OMG that was so funny! A few friends and I GAGGED when this happened. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. A couple of my non-computer nerds didn't get the reference and sat there with confused looks on their faces which made it even funnier.
