Kenny Chesney Flunks The Gene Simmons Test!

14 Feb

Let me preface by saying I’m not a country music fan.  I barely know who Kenny Chesney is.  I don’t care if he’s gay or not.  I have no issue with consenting adults being gay or straight.  Whatever floats your boat and doesn’t hurt anyone else is fine by me.

All that said, man oh man, Kenny Chesney came off like quite an idiot this week.  Not being the biggest Renee Zellwiger fan, although it must be said I did enjoy the first Bridget Jones movie, I barely remembered that Chesney was briefly married to her.  Furthermore, I didn’t realize that she’d sued for divorce on the grounds of fraud, which apparently has led some to conclude and whisper that Chesney likes guys rather than women.

I have no idea whether that’s true or not and could care less.  The point here is that I had no idea of any of this.  I do now and it’s thanks to Kenny Chesney, who years after his divorce is still busy rehashing it.

Chesney doesn’t want us to think he’s gay.  He even went so far as to let the world know that he’s bedded over 100 women in his lifetime.

All it’s served to do is inform people like me that he is rumored to be gay and in fact served to make those rumors more credible.

Chesney’s strategy failed on two fronts.  First, he simply protested too much.  It’s like a bigot who’s over eager to let you know some of his best friends are Jews or Hispanics or Country Stars.  You know you’re being sold a bill of goods.  Want another analogy?  Why not?  It’s Saturday after all and we’ve got some time.  Chesney busting out his list of sexual conquests is like that guy who secretly thinks his package is too small and buys a Corvette or Hummer to compensate.  You know who you are….

Secondly, Chesney’s stategy failed due to the Gene Simmon’s effect.  Chesney is a massive country star and has been one for years.  Yet, he’s barely over triple digits in terms of sexual partners.  And he’s bragging about that??  Somewhere Gene Simmons is laughing his a#s off.See full size image



Is it proof he’s gay?  Of course not, but I never asked the question in the first place.  Still if Chesney’s trying to convince me he loves women so much than he should have picked a number that would have been more respectable in comparison to the Kiss legend.

Is that too much to ask?

PS – Below is a picture of Kenny Chesney with a supermodel, which is further proof (I suppose he’d argue ) that he’s not gay.



PPS – Below is a picture of Chesney with former bride Zellwiger.  Body language kind of foretells a lot about their future, eh? Could they be further apart and more awkward?  And what’s with the hand in the pocket, Kenny?

  2. gabrielle June 27, 2009 at 3:46 pm #

    I think he is the most awesome singer & very cute! He is not gay!

    Hi Gabrielle,

    Thanks for checking out my post.

    I wrote it a long time ago but I think my point was that by listing how many women Chesney’s been with he actually made people like me who were completely unaware of the gay rumors surrounding him hear about the very rumors he is trying to dispel.

    I don’t care if he’s gay or straight. Either way, like anyone else he deserves a shot at happiness.

    Come on back soon,

    Kenny chesney is not GAY!!! Is is an awesome singer and a fine man.. theres no way he could be gay.

  5. tidewaterjackson July 2, 2009 at 3:02 am #

    I’m not saying Kenny is Gay.

    Bigger issue is it concerns me that you think there’s never been a fine person who is an awesome singer that is also gay.

    I love kenny chesney but unfortunately ive noticed hes gay loooooong time ago! It sucks and at first I would ignore it, but well what can you do. So, all this talk now isnt even surprising to me =/

  7. tidewaterjackson July 3, 2009 at 3:29 am #

    Why does it suck that he’s gay?

    I want to be clear that I’m fine with Kenny either way.

    Anyway, thanks for checking out my blog.

    Maybe he just has more morals than Gene Simmons… what a ridiculous comment.

  9. ckbh July 4, 2009 at 8:05 pm #

    How many partners someone has had is in no way a reflection of their sexual preference, it is merely a statement about their morality and lifestyle choice. If you don’t care, as you say you don’t, why are you blogging about it? hmmmmm.

  10. tidewaterjackson July 5, 2009 at 1:01 pm #

    ckbh – totally agree with both your comments.

    the only reason I blogged about it is that I found Chesney’s need to spout off about all his partners surprising & saw a chance to write a humorous post about it.

    If you missed the humor, then next time I’ll try harder.

    Thanks for taking time to check out my post & comment (twice).

    All the best,

    Funny he failed the Simmons test based on sexuality… as it is know (if your over 40) that Simmons himself is not free of the homo experience. It’s a bi-product of the orgy lifestyle Simmons and the rest of the “boys” experienced in the 70’s. Lets look in the mirror before we start pointing fingers. I think KC may be confused but does it really matter? He has great music as does Rob Halford from Judas Priest (Gay), Freddie Mercury from Queen (Gay) and Pete Townshend of the Who (Gay)! Let’s all just worry about our own issues and leave people to deal with theirs…

  14. tidewaterjackson July 8, 2009 at 2:16 am #

    Amen to you on letting others live. People seem to keep misinterpretting this post (as I think you did).

    It had two points. First, that by bragging about how hetero he is Kenny Chesney just gave more fuel to the whispers that he prefers the company of men.

    Second, the I hoped humorous angle that for a superstar musician bagging 100 women isn’t a particularly high number & then I brought in Simmons to give a comedic baseline for the number of partners a rock star might have.

    For the record, I don’t care what Chesney’s sexuality is.

    Live & let live!

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! Kenny is NOT gay ,but if he was it’sssssssssss allllllllllll goodddddddddddddddd because he still looks gooddddddddd….So unless there is proff like him kissing a dude or something else like that ,then yall can’t say that he is gay because there is no way that he is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. bob the builder July 17, 2009 at 10:40 pm #

    who really cares? its not like any of us are going to be graced with the presence of a very famous gay country singer. so what does it really matter in the long run?

  17. tidewaterjackson July 18, 2009 at 1:49 am #

    Absolutely not.

    Thanks for taking time to comment.


  18. rhonda August 10, 2009 at 4:17 pm #

    Don’t people have other things to do than bash Kenny Chesny he is the best and they are just jealous. I wish he could find a good women that loves him for him not his success or money and that will happen some day and little Kenny’s will be running around

  19. tidewaterjackson August 11, 2009 at 3:10 am #

    Thanks for checking out my blog and taking time to comment. I too hope that Kenny is happy with whatever makes him happy so that he can stop bragging about the number of partners he’s had.

    All the best,

    Kenny Chesney seems like a good guy and unforturately a gay country star won’t make any money. Remember K.D. Lang? He knows that so why should he admitt his sexuality. Would you?!

  21. tidewaterjackson August 29, 2009 at 7:38 pm #

    I just hope he’s happy no matter what his sexuality.

    Thanks for checking out this blog & please come on back.


  22. CK October 18, 2009 at 9:55 pm #

    I am willing to be woman 101 !! He is so hot and so not gay, he has nothing to prove and could have done MUCH better than Renee’ Zellweger, give me a break…it was also a MUTUAL divorce and they explained that the other very limited explanations did not apply….so whoever wrote this is so jealous, get a life !! 🙂

  23. tidewaterjackson October 19, 2009 at 11:12 am #


    Thanks for checking out this post & good luck being woman 101. It’s good to have goals….

    I live in Katy, Texas, Renee Zellweger’s hometown of which she has not had very kind things to say in the press. Well, God Bless and hope you are happy in La La Land, Renee. Our feelings here won’t be hurt if ya stay there!

    As for Kenny’s “boasting” of 100 conquests: I think it wasn’t good form–admitting to one immorality to prove you aren’t guilty of another? Come on! Don’t ask. Don’t tell already.

    As for your thinking the number is low: even if he isn’t willing to stick his junk in anything with a pulse, like the narcisistic Simmons, et al , some may feel 100 sexual encounters is rather reckless, not to mention most likely pathetically meaningless. Does Zellweger come to anyone else’s mind here. Wow, that sounded meaner than I intended.

    I would like to say, because so many others seemed to have totally missed it (and it obviously matters greatly to you, given the number of times you kept hammering the point), I agree that his preferences are his business. I would just hope that the “fraud” he perpetrated on Renee Zellweger was saying he hated Texas, as she does, just so he could get into her bed. Either way, his music is great!

  25. tidewaterjackson October 22, 2009 at 8:32 pm #

    Good and fair points all. Except don’t agree that sex outside marriage or homosexuality are immoral. But you are welcomed to your views and thanks for taking time to comment coherently.

    All the best,

    Hi Laura,

    Thanks for taking time to read & comment & I hope you’ll come back. I’ve made this point many times before in response to people who’ve read this blog. I don’t know or care whether Kenny Chesney is gay or not, but I did think his bragging about his conquests to prove he’s not gay was pretty lame.

    All the best,

    I love country, However…. Kenny is so gay…. Big disappointment to the country music entertainers, and the true meaning of country music..! Maybe Kenny should trie to do a music video for broke back mountain.

  38. anonymous April 17, 2013 at 11:28 pm #

    Times are changing and hopefully country music can mature to the point where one of their own can just be allowed to “be themselves” without any fear of retribution.If he is gay,(speculation) then there should be no fear of coming to terms with that side of his life,otherwisethat can be only a very miserable and uncomfortable existence as a person.

    What does it matter gay or not he is an awesome singer! What people do behind closed doors is their business. People need to get a life

    Oakley Sunglasses is among world’s considerable sun shades tends

    Despite having giving comfort and ease and relieve along
    with defense inside your eyeballs, all the sun shades glimpse seriously fashionable and trendy.

    Provided that the manufacturer creates sunglasses of fantastic high-quality, it can be
    definitely not peculiar that their sun shades are not the most reasonably priced it is possible to uncover.Facts about the Oakley .
    It had been released in 1937 simply by an American business enterprise named Ray Ban. This enterprise did several things that has got to anticipated

    These people wanted Ray – Ban to development a nice list of sun shades in the Us Army.
    Specifically all the pilots due for the fact these products had lots of problem with the daylight

    glasses or contact lenses who could well be the two functional as well as modern.

    I read a comment somewhere else that he’s getting married again. Look this is just an example under the heading of slut shaming. He’s been with too many women so he must be gay. Sleep with too many women…gay…sleep with no Nice that Kenny lives rent free in so many heads. To me this is just a form of misogyny….no man can love women….he HAS to be gay.
