IN a candid interview with Out magazine in the US, gay pop icon Madonna has admitted that she once tried to date gay men.

Claiming she struggled to find a boyfriend after she dropped out of the University of Michigan and moved to New York City in the late 1970s, the 56-year-old star said: “I didn’t feel like straight men understood me. They just wanted to have sex with me.

“Gay men understood me, and I felt comfortable around them. There was only that one problem, which is that they didn’t want to have sex with me. So… conundrum.

“I was like, ‘how am I ever going to get a date? Maybe if I cut my hair and I lose a lot of weight, someone will mistake me for a guy and ask me out’.”
