Interesting wee story about the man with the very private private life:

http://uk.news.yahoo...on-5f8abb3.html

Sir Cliff Richard has spoken for the first time about his friendship with a former Roman Catholic priest he shares his home with.

The singer and well-known Christian describes Father John McElynn as his "companion" in his new autobiography.

Sir Cliff, 67, also says he is sick of speculation about his sexuality and thinks the Church should approve same sex marriages.

The star reveals how he met US former missionary McElynn seven years ago while on a trip to New York.

He writes: "He hadn't had any thought at the beginning of giving up the priesthood, but when it became clear he was thinking of the possibility, I suggested he might help me with some charitable projects.

"That was seven years ago and our arrangement has worked out really well. John now spends most of his time looking after my properties, which means I don't have to.

"John and I have over time struck up a close friendship. He has also become a companion, which is great because I don't like living alone, even now.

"People often make the mistake of thinking that only marriage equals happiness. I may suddenly meet someone and feel differently, but right now I am not sure marriage would enhance my happiness."

He writes: "As for my sexuality I am sick to death of the media's speculation about it.

"What business is it of anyone else's what any of us are as individuals? I don't think my fans would care either way."

I think there's a wee man in the middle of the Amazonian rain forest that doesn't know Cliff's gay. It's about time he just left Narnia, and came out of the closet.

I'm going to have to agree with Cliff here and say, Why?
Does everyone have to disclose their sexuality, gay, straight or celibate?
Can you imagine Brad Pitt appearing on Jay Leno to announce he's heterosexual?

But cliff feels the need to go on about his 'companion', the church, same sex marriages to the sun, then bleats on about the fact that his life should be private...

You are correct stimpy in the fact that it's no-one else's business, but c'mon, the sun? If he felt the need to keep his private life private, he wouldn't go anywhere near that rag, it's one big scandal sheet.

No-one would really care otherwise.

You've got one up on me, i don't associate myself with the sun (or any other red top) so i didn't know he had done.

This is a bit of publicity for Cliff. He wants a number one single in this decade so he can be the only artist to have had number ones in six different decades or something like that.

It doesn't really matter though, it's on Yahoo news, and in a new book. If he was that serious about keeping his life private, we would just give up the publicity machine, and play tennis for the rest of his days.

If he came out and married Sue barker, now that would be news :lol:

When he was after a number one in the nineties he claimed to have shagged Una Stubbs. :lol:

Ahh, so that's the real reason...

No-one gives a shit about him these days apart from old grannies, pilled up on sanatogen re-living their youth. If he wants a number one, it's just pure ego.

Mind you, I would bet money he prefers entering at the number 2 slot ;)

Cliff's PR must be really shit if he thinks that the way to get a number 1 single is to tell the world about your friend who used to be a Catholic Priest. :rolleyes:

It'll be because it's meant to be his final tour this year - the 50th Anniversary tour - maybe he hasn't sold all the tickets.

And yes I've got them for my mother and no doubt I'll have to accompany her again :ph34r:

I've never really considered Cliff to be gay. The bloke had quite a few girlfriends in his younger days, now he lives a life of supposed celibacy. The same thing was speculated about David Jason - another intensely private man - but isn't a woofter either.

Cliff Richard is not a private person for f**k's sake. That's the whole point of the thread.

Did David Jason not nurse his long-term girlfriend before she died of breast cancer? Believe he married after that and had a child.
