Darren Hayes: Queer and odd

Over on Electroqueer, Darren Hayes responds to the flap about his recent interview about gay media stereotypes. Especially that he never gave such an interview:

"That interview never occurred. I haven't done press in over a year. That is a tabloid piecing together quotes from I think three different interviews from a while ago. All rather tacky in my opinion!"

What's more interesting, though, is the "tabloid" in question:
"I have a whole issue about mainstream pop and certainly television culture, and how damaging that is in terms of dumbing down being gay," he told [or rather didn't tell] Gay Times.

Gay Times? Not the first title you'd think of when trying to guess "what tabloid made-up an interview with a gay man", is it?
