As briefly mentioned in GMN, country music singer Chely Wright has announced she is a lesbian in People magazine, while the rest of us have announced that we don't know who the fuck she is. HOWEVER! That momentarily changed for me this morning when someone said, "Chely Wright? Oh, she's the one who does that song 'Shut Up and Drive.'" And I was like, "Wait a second... oh yeah, I know who she is!" But actually I didn't. Turns out I was thinking of Rihanna's "Shut Up and Drive" which is about 50 billion times better than Chely Wright's "Shut Up and Drive." So here are the two videos for "Shut Up and Drive" for comparative purposes. Added bonus: One features a lesbian and the other a heterosexual—also for comparative purposes.
Boy, heterosexuals and lesbians are really different.
