Queen Go-Go Belinda Carlisle spoke to Attitude magazine this month about her gay son (17 years old!), James Duke Mason. Frankly she sounds a little iffy on the whole thing. Who would guess that even a mom who used to play “Corner Cleaners” could get uptight sometimes?
I have to say even though it wasn’t that much of a surprise, it was a shock. When he told me I was driving and I had to pull the car over. It is different when it is your child. It’s not bad or good… but you start thinking, and I don’t mean this negatively, ‘Is there something I’ve done?’ I didn’t quite understand. More than likely it was a genetic thing.
Just a guess, Belinda, but maybe it had something to do with exposing him to all that Go-Go’s music at an early age!
See pics from the magazine of Ms. Carlisle and her kid after the jump. Normally I would say that he’s kinda hot, but he’s a child, so, um, you didn’t hear it from me!

UPDATE: Reader FakeName helpfully reminds me that Belinda recorded this YouTube ad in support of marriage equality in Maine several months ago!
