Arashi‘s Sakurai Sho apparently frequents a gay bar, which is sure to get certain people excited.
Idol Sakurai Sho, who also moonlights as a newscaster, was seen at Shinjuku Ni-chome. It looks like he was secretly visiting a gay bar.
Bar S, a well-known gay bar in Ni-chome, does not allow females or new comers to enter. This bar is known for being a traditional gay bar (heterosexuals need not apply.) Their employees are also gay. Their bartender is a middle-aged bearded man. So why did Sho visit that bar?
“Sakurai Sho is normal and definitely not gay. He just likes talking to people while he drinks. Since he’s super popular, he can’t go to cabaret clubs or any of the other bars. And somehow, he just ended up going to bars in Ni-chome.” Said a tabloid reporter.
The waiters at the bar can keep secrets and they are very nice to all their customers. This is very soothing to such a stressed man. When Sakurai goes to the bar, they often deny entrance to other people and do their best to let him let loose in the store. Sakurai is so busy that sometimes he works until the last train, and even then they’ll try their best to match his schedule so he visits even when he’s super busy. If he has the time, he’d go at least 2-3 times a month.
As such a popular idol, one can hardly believe that Sakurai goes to a gay bar to relax. With a no females rule, this might be the only place he can get away from prying eyes.
Sorry guys and gals, but it seems like he’s not gay, he just wants to get away from all of you.
Despite my cynicism about everything, I actually believe the story because a straight guy going to a gay bar and not caring who knows about it is, oddly enough, usually a sign that the guy is confident in his heterosexuality.
Quality tabloid story, either way.
