Joan Rivers has caused controversy by urging gay stars not to reveal their true sexuality - because 'coming out' could damage their career.
The outspoken comedienne is adamant showbusiness is still difficult for homosexual stars, and she's convinced they would be better off keeping their love life private until they become well-established as an artist.
And Rivers cites singer Ricky Martin, who revealed he's gay in March (10) after years of speculation, as an example.
She tells The Advocate, "If you're going to be a romantic idol and try to get every teenage girl to love you, then you'd be an a** to come out and say you're gay. Ricky Martin was so smart. He did what he did, made his millions and then he said, 'Guess what, everybody? I'm gay...' It didn't matter anymore because he didn't have to bring in 16-year-old girls."

Hey Joan!Maybe you didn't notice, but Adam Lambert's tour is SOLD OUT, we know he's gay, and we don't care. The majority of the audience is still young women and young men. talent speaks for itself, and this is a different world than it was a few years agao.
