平常的幸福 Unknown

如果总是用勇敢/突破世俗限制来形容同性恋者的COME-OUT 着实让人觉得反感
平常的就好 不必如临大敌 也不必趋之若骛 不应该戴任何偏向的有色眼镜
所以听闻Darren Hayes的COME-OUT 我只是微笑 并从心底里祝福他和他的爱人
(当然我不否认在吴江路蹲点BL情侣 是我热衷的周末消遣活动之一 HOHO~~同人女啊)

在繁星璀璨走马观花的欧美流行乐坛 卖个2,3000万张唱片 并不是一件有多么了不起的事情
Savage Garden为什么特别?
大抵是因为我们这一代人 在念初中/高中时 在刚刚接受欧美流行音乐时
没有人没听过Savage Garden的歌吧?
谁不会哼上两句Truly Madly Deeply啊I Knew I Love You啊Santa Monica啊
Darren是我一直喜欢的 我对眼睛漂亮的人一向没有抵抗力

Darren太美了 当年萌双D(SG的两个成员 Daniel & Darren)的人应该不在少数
Darren的性向也是好事媒体一直紧揪不放的话题 尤其是99年他和前妻离婚之后
SG在如日中天的时候突然宣布解散也曾造成一时轰动 紧接着又是Darren的单飞
内讧?不和? 又或者.....

其实这些都不重要 解散固然令人惋惜一时 各自的人生都还在继续
COME-OUT着实shock 不过Darren也不是第一例
Darren在表露自己甜蜜婚姻生活的同时 不忘感谢家人和歌迷的无私支持
COME-OUT不是一个终结 而是一个开端 通向平常的幸福

平日里迷耽美时那些「邪恶」的思想都暂时被我驱走了 (默念纯洁一百遍....Orz)
Darren  祝你幸福!

I very rarely make comments about my private life.

But today, as I'm about to begin 6 months in the studio to record what I hope to be the best record of my career, I feel an overwhelming gratitude for the past 10 years of being a performer. Most recently, I've been moving toward a career that is more closely aligned with 'art' than it is 'commerce'. And in keeping on this trajectory - I have become increasingly more emotionally authentic in my music, writing and my relationship to my audience. As so many of you have given me your heart and soul over the past 10 years I thought it only fitting that I too return the respect and inform you of the most significant event in my life.

On June 19th 2006 I married my boyfriend of two years, Richard, in a Civil Partnership ceremony in London.

I can honestly say it was the happiest day of my life.

I feel lucky to live in an era where my relationship can be considered legally legitimate and I commend the UK Government for embracing this very basic Civil Liberty.

I'm proud of who I am, and after what felt like an eternity, I'm finally in a place where my heart is secure and content. And I can finally make sense of all of the searching.

I still maintain the belief that families and relationships are not commodities to be sold off for public consumption. In this regard, I am and will continue to be a public person with a private life.  

I have always written songs about human relationships and our journey in life.  I've never felt the need to differentiate or speak to a specific part of society. This hasn't changed.  I will continue to write songs for everybody and hope that the feelings and thoughts I sing about are universal. Today, as I get on a plane to return to London, my head will be filled with all the future possibilities that I hope to explore musically.

To the people who buy my records, come to my shows and demonstrate on a daily basis their love and support for me and what I do:  thank you.

Your overwhelming message to me lately seems to be that you are just glad that I am happy.  For this, I am eternally grateful.  

To my Mum, Dad, Sister and Brother - thanks for always being so cool and loving me unconditionally.

With love and respect always
Darren Hayes
