As part of its continuing mission to improve our lives/make money/creep everyone out, Google has rolled out its own version of gaydar. Now when you type a celebrity's name followed with the word "gay" or "straight," Google will suggest their probable sexuality based on statements they've made in interviews. The company never announced the new feature, and its list is far from extensive. Nothing shows up for most celebrities, and you won't find any answers about stars who are rumored to be in the closet like Anderson Cooper, Queen Latifah, Tom Cruise, and John Travolta. However, people can stop speculating about James Franco, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Ryan Seacrest's sexuality because Google says they're straight. And if there's one thing we can trust when it comes to people's private sexual preferences, it's Google's algorithm.

Oh man. This makes me want to be famous and drop all sorts of ridiculous hints in interviews to confound Google.
Also - a bit unfair. It does say it's only Google's best guess, not that the person is conclusively gay or straight.
