Like Mean Betty said last week, “Haven’t you heard, kittens? Being bisexual is the new black.” Apparently so, as another Hollywood star has labeled herself as a man and woman lovin’ gal.

Vanessa Carlton, the 29-year-old singer best known for her song, “Ordinary Day,” came out to the audience at the Nashville Pride Festival this weekend. She told the crowd of about 18,000, “I’ve never said this before, but I am a proud bisexual woman.”

Of course, this announcement would’ve packed more punch if Anna Paquin hadn’t just admitted she was bisexual, and if Cameron Diaz didn’t just admit she could love a woman. Oh yeah, and if Miley Cyrus didn’t kiss her female backup dancer.

Is there something in the water that’s suddenly making all of Hollywood want to go both ways? Or are same-sex kisses just way more fun? (Boston Herald)

Tell us: What do you think about Vanessa Carlton’s coming out?

    Oh puh-lease! Every woman is somewhat “bi-sexual”!

    Golly gee, first it’s the True Blood wench, Anna Paquin and now her. Let’s all jump on the “I kissed a girl and I liked it,” train.

    I think it’s still a big deal if a person comes out as gay, though.

    weetziebat I totally agree. But sayign you’re “bi” ? Maybe I’m cynical but it seems more fore sexy shock value that anything else.
