Um, No

Stephen Gately, the gay(est) member of the boyband Boyzone, died last weekend in Spain of natural causes due to pulmonary oedema (read more here). Tomorrow, his body will be transported to Dublin for his funeral at Church of St Laurence O’Toole on Saturday and oh my God ewww! Ewww! Mirror reports:

Stephen Gately’s four Boyzone bandmates plan to stay in the church with his body overnight before his funeral. Ronan Keating, Mikey Graham, Shane Lynch and Keith Duffy will bed down in the chapel late tomorrow because Stephen “didn’t like to be alone”. A source said: “It proves how close they were. Those lads would do anything for Stephen and they know he would not want to be there on his own.” The boys’ gesture is unexpected. In Ireland the body is often taken to the church the night before a funeral but friends and family do not stay with it. An undertakers’ source said: “People do not stay overnight in churches. It just doesn’t happen. They don’t even stay the night in funeral homes. “But with young people like Stephen, maybe they’ve discussed their wishes with friends before and told them they would not like to be alone overnight.” Shane, 33, Mikey, 37, Keith, 35, and Ronan, 32 will fly to Majorca today by private jet to bring Stephen, 33, home. They will return to Dublin the next day when his coffin will be taken to a funeral home for a private family viewing. It will then be moved to St Laurence O’Toole Church in Dublin’s inner city, a few hundred yards from where the singer grew up, accompanied by the band.

He’s gonna be spending the night alone for a while, so I’m not understanding this whole thing. It seems kind of dangerous to me. Because if I know zombies, and I’d like to think I do, they have an insatiable thirst for brains that can’t be bargained with, or reasoned with. I mean, why take the chance? Who will survive?! And what will be left of them?!

The Gayest One Died

[SinglePic not found]

I’m not sure how you can be 33-years old and still be considered to be in a boy band, but Stephen Gately (front center), member of the “boy band” Boyzone(real subtle), died this weekend while on vacation in Majorca Spain. Cause of death is unknown. E! Online reports:

“We are truly sorry to confirm that Stephen tragically died yesterday whilst on holiday, with his partner Andrew in Majorca,” the site said. “We are unable to give any other details at this time.” His bandmates Ronan Keating, Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham and Shane Lynch said in a statement: “We are completely devastated by the loss of our friend and brother, Stephen. We have shared such wonderful times together over the years and were all looking forward to sharing many more. Stephen was a beautiful person in both body and spirit. He it up our lives and those of the many friends he had all over the world. Our love and sympathy go out to Andrew and Stephen’s family. We will love you and will miss you forever, ‘Steo’.” The 33-year-old shook up the pop world ten years ago when he announced he was gay. The Irish pop group had a huge teenage female fan base at the time and had sold millions of albums before splitting in 2000. The band reunited in 2008 for a successful tour. Gately and his partner Andrew Cowles wed in a civil union in 2006.

I have no idea who any of these people are and you could drive a stake through my balls and I still couldn’t name any of their songs, but I’d like to take this time to give my condolences to his family. Especially since gay people don’t go to heaven.

I think this is one of their songs:
