I think because on stage we wear sequins people go 'oh they must be a bit out there', We never tone ourselves down. We're not lad lads but we're comfortable enough to just be on stage and do Prince vibes
Jedward even claims that all the sexual comments have made them feel suicidal once. Not only Edward but also John has denied being gay. He said that he and Edward do whatever they want to and talked about his past relationship, which was private. He stated;
We have had relationships, but it's never been our number one priority to showcase them, the 26 year old said. It's like a career movement that me and John were never like. Other people who are 'oh God let's do the OK! spread, let's tell them about the break-up, the marriage, the kids', that was never us. Girls are more career driven like 'oh I want to do this'. But it's nice now because this programme takes the edge of us being so public with our private lives.
