Jessica Lowndes, an actress on the CW show ''90210,'' is trying to break into the music world - by releasing a song where she ridiculously poses as a straight woman wishing she were gay.
Lowndes released a single  with the catchy title ''I Wish I Was Gay,'' about a woman reacting to being cheated on by her boyfriend. Lowdnes repeats the words ''I wish I was gay,'' and expresses a desire to ''escape those boys.'' The song also bizarrely suggests that lesbians are more faithful than straight guys, a claim  even gay site Queerty mocked.
The music video features a provocatively dressed Lowndes teasing a man and flirting with her backup dancers before confronting him with his infidelity, shaving his legs and smearing his face with lipstick.
Lowndes' single is part of a larger trend of gay themes being used in contemporary music. The Huffington Post notes  that 'gay themes are quickly becoming a ubiquitous element of contemporary pop music.'
Female musicians in particular are promoting homosexuality and bisexual behavior. Pop star Lady Gaga is notorious for her advocacy of homosexuality , and included homosexual themes in songs such as ''Born This Way.''  Singer Katy Perry explored  bisexual themes with her 2008 song ''I Kissed a Girl.'' X Factor competitor Simone Battle recently released  a song and music video titled 'He Likes Boys,' which expressed a girl's unrequited desire for gay guys.
While the trend of increasing homosexuality in pop songs is certainly worrisome, Lowndes' latest propaganda effort would probably draw more of a following if her singing were competent. After listening to Lowndes' lesbian fantasy, most listeners would probably echo the sentiments of one reviewer , who declared: ''I wish I was deaf.''
