Is Shelby Lynne People's Big Gay Reveal? (Update: Probably)

We called country singer Shelby Lynne's publicist to ask whether her client will announce her gayness the cover of People on May 5. "I don't have any information on that." How can a publicist not know the answer to that?

After the blog Autostraddle.com made the case for Lynne coming out of the closet on Cinco de Gayo—as we are now calling People's much-hyped May 5 issue—we called Lynne's publicist, Judi Kerr to ask whether the mystery celebrity was her client. "I don't have any information on that," Kerr replied.

So we asked if she was denying that Lynne would be on People's cover next week.

"I don't have any information on that."

But surely she'd know if her client was going to be in the magazine or not?

"I don't have any information on that."

That's about as close as we're going to get to confirmation until the magazine hits the stands next week. [Autostraddle]
