Video: Levi Johnston is Totally Cool with Being a Gay Icon

Levi Johnston paid a visit to Joy Behar's CNN show the other day and she bluntly asked him about why he decided not to go full monty for his Playgirl spread and how he felt about being a gay icon. Surprisingly enough, the 19-year-old Alaskan Mexicano seemed totally comfortable with his new position.

Admitting that growing up in Wasilla was very conservative Johnston shared the gem that he "had never even seen a gay guy in town." He also shrugged off his new found status among the gay community as no big deal. "Once I started doing all these tours and everything, I just, you know, they're people too." Johnston said.  "It doesn't matter to me, more fans, it's great."

About this author

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
