Tears Falling Like Rain...

Anthony Callea

In 2004 Anthony Callea was a contestant on Australian Idol. He came in 2nd place and after his appearance on the show he released his debut single "The Prayer" which has become the best selling single of all time in Australia.

During his time on Idol back in 2004 he was asked about his sexuality to which he replied... "I am not gay." But that wasn't the last of the story.

The speculation started again March 1st when a Dj insinuated that Callea was gay and accidentally 'outed' him on a morning radio show. A junior producer was even fired over the incident. The Callea camp had remained quiet until today.

Today Anthony has spoken out and confirmed "Yes, I am Gay. I have no issue with my sexuality now, but it's taken time to become confident with who I am and happy with who I am. It shouldn't really be relevant to me being a singer and a performer."

He's a total fraud and a complete liar. Anthony would never have come out of the closet if he wasn't pushed.

On a lighter note, I love your Blog. It's great!
