Pop Tart Britney Spears Named Ultimate Gay Icon Of All Time!

By Robert Paul Reyes

Who is the ultimate gay icon of all time? It`s Britney, Bi***

"Pop star Britney Spears has been named the ultimate gay icon of all time in a poll by the Equality Project, having beaten off competition from Lady Gaga, Barack Obama and Cher.


Spears took 31 per cent of the vote. Madonna was ranked second with 25 per cent and bisexual Lady Gaga took 22 per cent of the vote in third place. Ironically, Lady Gaga is considered to be the world`s most influential gay rights advocate."

Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and Madonna are the Holy Trinity of gay icons.

Lady Gaga doesn`t pose a serious threat to Spears` reign as the most beloved gay icon. Lady Gaga may have millions of gay monsters who adore her, but some critics accuse her of pandering to gays and lesbians. Gays and lesbians don`t need the blessing of a publicity hungry celeb to legitimize their community.

However I predict that Madonna will be back on top before you can say "Snap." Madonna has staying power and she`s had a long relationship with gays and lesbians. All girlfriend has to do is release a new album or launch another concert tour and she`ll be the ultimate gay icon again.
