Darren Hayes says that Michael Jackson gave him the inspiration to come out according to Digital Spy
"I owe my coming out to Michael Jackson, basically. He came from a similar upbringing and family to mine.

"He was a sensitive young thing with a stern and violent father who forced himself down a creative avenue as a means of escape. I connected to that gorgeous, wounded creature that he was."

Ummm, quick question when did Michael Jackson come out? And I never heard anyone describe Michael Jackson as a "gorgeous, wounded creature"….creature yes, but gorgeous and wounded no.

WTF Darren Hayes arrested over verbal racist attack?
August 21st, 2007 under Darren Hayes. [ Comments: 17 ]

Darren Hayes (best known as the singer from Savage Garden) was arrested in London over an alleged verbal racist attack at a Thai restaurant according to
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "We can confirm that a 35-year-old man was arrested by Westminster police on suspicion of racially abusing a member of staff.

"He was arrested after voluntarily attending a Central London police station by appointment. He has been released on bail pending further enquiries, until the 21st of September.”

Darren Hayes' people confirm the arrest on his MySpace blog, but deny the allegation.

Recent Allegation
A Statement from Darren's solicitor

"Darren is unable to comment to any extent as the incident is presently under investigation by the police, with whom he has cooperated fully.
However he is deeply upset at the allegation which he strenuously denies and anyone who knows Darren will recognise that the particular nature of the allegation is totally abhorrent to him and contrary to everything for which he has stood"

I just don't understand how someone is arrested for a verbal not physical racist attack. Especially the man that dreamed up I Knew I Loved You Before I Met You. I hope he is cleared from this stupid charge. 


Darren Hayes marries boyfriend!
July 17th, 2006 under Darren Hayes. [ Comments: none ]

Australian singer Darren Hayes has married his male partner of two years in a civil service in the United Kingdom In a personal message posted on his official website, the former Savage Garden frontman confirmed he had married his British partner Richard Cullen. "I very rarely make comments about my private life," the singer said "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." Hayes has been based in the UK for a number of years and earlier this month returned to Australia for a one-off concert at the Sydney Opera House, where he was spotted wearing a wedding ring.
The British government this year introduced the Civil Partnership Act, allowing same sex couples to marry in the UK. In Australia, however, the federal government has opposed same-sex marriage and quashed ACT legislation allowing homosexuals to create civil unions. "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," said Hayes.


I love Savage Garden, I just wish they didn’t break up.
