I adore Darren Hayes, and am so happy and relieved that he finally got married and stopped being so ambigious about his sexuality. I mean i can totally understand his sentiments of not wanting to be the "gay" ex Savage Garden member, cause that tag just doesn't go away, but obviously his love for his boyfriend goes further then having to have this mentioned in the same breath as his name, like George Michael or Rupert Everett!

But I think Colby (his ex wife) would be happy for him, as I don't think this would come as a surprise to her. I mean, she would have known about it judging from what went on! (and my friends and i have a theory anyway!)

But yay, I hope Darren and Richard will be a shiny happy loving couple for ever!

If it was a consentual split (which I know nothing of their divorce ) then I wouldn't care who my ex married...

I like Darren Hayes and am happy for him that he is open and happy about his sexual preferences.

You never know. My aunt-in-law married a gay man and had kids. They eventually split, she remarried, he has a life partner and they all have Christmas together

I think most of us all had a slight idea he maybe at least bi. Well good for him, I think he is a fantastic singer and songwriter. All the best for what ever he is. Would be interesting to know which songs were written about women or Colby and which were written about men. We know So Beautiful is about Richard but what about others

Lance Bass, the former 'N Sync heartthrob, reveals that he is gay, in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE.

"I knew that I was in this popular band and I had four other guys' careers in my hand, and I knew that if I ever acted on it or even said (that I was gay), it would overpower everything," says Bass, referring to bandmates Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, JC Chasez and Justin Timberlake.

"I didn’t know: Could that be the end of ’N Sync? So I had that weight on me of like, ‘Wow, if I ever let anyone know, it's bad.' So I just never did," he says speaking about his sexual orientation for the first time with PEOPLE.

Now, after years of keeping his personal life private, the Mississippi-bred, Southern Baptist-reared Bass, 27, is publicly revealing what he first shared with his friends, then his shocked family.

"He took years to really think about how he was going to tell everyone," says his close buddy Fatone, 29, who was the first 'N Sync bandmate to find out Bass is gay. "I back him up 100 percent." Adds Bass’s longtime pal, actress Christina Applegate: "I've always accepted him as who he is. It's about his own serenity at this point."

Having pursued acting, producing and – most memorably – space flight after ’N Sync went on hiatus in 2002, Bass now is looking ahead to new beginnings. He is in a "very stable" relationship with model-actor-Amazing Race winner Reichen Lehmkuhl, 32, and is developing an Odd Couple-inspired sitcom pilot with Fatone in which his character will be gay.

Mostly, though, he’s just enjoying the relief that comes with the culmination of a long, at times emotionally fraught journey. "The thing is, I’m not ashamed – that’s the one thing I want to say," he explains of his decision to come out. "I don't think it's wrong, I'm not devastated going through this. I'm more liberated and happy than I’ve been my whole life. I'm just happy."

As for why he's talking about this now Bass says, "The main reason I wanted to speak my mind was that (the rumors) really were starting to affect my daily life. Now it feels like it's on my terms. I'm at peace with my family, my friends, myself and God so there's really nothing else that I worry about."

For the full Q&A with Lance Bass, pick up PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.

Well, Truly Madly Deeply & This Side Of Me (a b-side) were written for Colby while they were still married.

Almost the entire album "Affirmation" (Savage Garden's second album from 1999) were songs that Darren wrote while he and Colby were going through their divorce. Darren was living in New York City and Colby was still in Australia. The separated in 1998 (or therabouts) and divorced in 2000.

Songs like "The Lover After Me", "Hold Me" and "I don't know you anymore" were songs chronicling the divorce.

Looking back now, I believe that Darren's second solo album "The Tension & The Spark" contained one song that I consider a "coming out" song - a song called "Love and Attraction" with lyrics like...."I want her, she wants him, he wants me, I give in, I want her, I want him, I don't want anyone....."

Also, on the same album, there are two songs which I believe were written for Richard: "Feel" and "Light". Songs that talk about finding love after a very long dark period in Darren's life and emerging from darkness into light.

If you want a chronicle of Darren's life, I STRONGLY recommend you start with either the first Savage Garden CD (oddly enough called "Savage Garden"...lol) or the greatest hits collection called: "Truly Madly....Completely". The first SG CD has very melodic and "innocent" pop songs.

Then I suggest you move on to "Affirmation" - as mentioned above, this is Darren's version of group therapy and venting his feelings over the end of his 6-year marriage to Colby.

Darren's first solo album following the split with Daniel Jones is called "Spin". There are a few good tracks on there (including the AMAZINGLY seductive song "Insatiable").

But if you really want a CD that will absolutely tear your heart out musically and lyrically, then I would recommend you check out "The Tension & The Spark". The lyrics are totally autobiographical in which Darren talks about relationships gone sour (the magnificent "Dublin Sky" and the gut-wrenching "Unloveable" with lyrics like: "you make me feel like my father never loved me, you make me feel like the act of love is empty....").

It was also during the promotion of this album that Darren was at his most personal - revealing in interviews about growing up in Brisbane Australia at the hands of an alcoholic, abusive father (who has since reformed and has become his hero).

Darren can write happy songs which can really make you happy or sad songs that can make you want to crawl into bed and never come out. That is the mark of a really great songwriter.

Up to now, Darren has been with SONY - however that relationship is done too and he's now in the studio working on his third solo album which will be released on a new record label.

Besides, his favorite band is U2 and Bono is a GOD to him.........so he can't be all bad.....lol.

truly madly deeply is a great song. savage garden were awesome back in their day. we had this song played at our wedding only cause it was on the radio the first time we had sex. so during the dance we were and everyone was 'we're missing the joke?' yeah.

ah well. as long as everyone is happy, what difference does it make?
