SPORTY SPICE MEL C wishes she was a lesbian - because in her experience men are rubbish.
When the allegations of lesbianism first surfaced, the Liverpudlian was amused but more recently has become tired of the constant snide comments. She says, “I used to think it was funny, but I’ve got a lot of fans who are lesbians and sometimes I get them coming up to me and saying ‘When are you going to come out?’ I’m not a liar. If I was gay, I’d tell everyone and be proud.
“I started feeling guilty because I wasn’t gay. I was thinking maybe I should be a lesbian. Sometimes I wish I was because men are so cr*p.”
