The People reports that former Blue star Lee Ryan and Abi Titmuss were flirting like crazy over drinks at the Sir Thomas Street hotel in Liverpool before Ryan took the 29-year-old former nurse to a club. “Abi and Lee were openly flirting in the VIP area,” an onlooker revealed. “Loads of girls were trying their luck with Lee but he only had eyes for Abi. She’s just his type. It’s clear they hit it off.”
Lee Ryan spoke with cd:uk in a Q&A, and talked about his 12 minute song about Jesus, even though he’s not religious.
“No, I’m spiritual. I hate religion,” the former Blue star said. “I think it’s the cause so many wars. I respect people’s religion but it’s not something that I’m into. I’m very spiritual and I believe Jesus was very spiritual – and that’s why I wrote this song. It’s got a hidden message in it and it took me three years to write! I’m still writing it. It’s got a 20-piece orchestra and a big gospel choir. I composed this piece of music on the piano which was taken from Mozart and changed it. If you heard it, you’d be like, ‘Oh, I know what you’re doing.’ The first half is called ‘Time Flies’ and the second half is called ‘I Am The Son Of God’. It’s basically saying that we are all the son of God, if you read into it. It doesn’t preach, it’s more like telling the story of who Jesus was. This is just a side project. I might even sell if on the internet and give the proceeds to charity. Specifically, I want it to go on an anti-war album. I want to get as much publicity for anti-war and I think the best way to do that is to donate the proceeds to an anti-war charity. I’ve worked with the War Child album.”
Lee Ryan spoke with the Daily Star about why Blue announced their “break” a year ago. “There wasn’t an official split because the boys didn’t want to do it,” he said. “I was the one who left. I’d had enough of people waiting for us to split and in the end I just said ‘Fu** it, I’m leaving’, and that was that.” He added, “I don’t miss working with them. As soon as I left the band I could be myself.”
Former Blue star Lee Ryan has been regretting his bad boy behavior of late, telling The Mirror, “Nice girls don’t approach me because they think I’m a pig. I was only 16 when I started in Blue and there were lots of stories but I was only doing what any lad would have liked to do.” So who is the nice girl Lee wants to approach? Jude Law’s apparent ex, Sienna Miller. “She’s cool,” he said. “I might send her my new single – it’s pretty romantic.”
Former Blue star Lee Ryan is out with the music video to his new single ‘When I Think Of You’, from the British pop singer’s self-titled debut. Watch it online below.

After already inflaming the anger of Americans after 9-11 when he argued “who gives a fu** about New York when elephants are being killed”, Lee Ryan is again raising eyebrows after being asked about his chances at cracking the U.S. as a solo artist. “America is a big myth. People think of it as the Holy Grail of the industry,” the former Blue star said, according to The Mirror. “It would be amazing to go over there and have a shot but, at the same time, I’m happy being successful in the UK, Asia and the rest of Europe.” He added, “America is very, very racist in the way that if you’re white, you can’t go on black radio and if you’re black, you can’t really go on white radio.”

We didn’t do that towards the end and I didn’t want to mime,” Ryan lamented. “The satisfaction in the job had gone and doing it for the money was too shallow. The reason I left Blue was that I wasn’t giving it my all or concentrating on it, I believed I should have been giving it 100%. All of us had lost interest in the music. Without that, the rest was bullsh**.”

Lee Ryan Happy To No Longer Be Muzzled
July 17, 2005 – With Lee Ryan now a solo singer, he tells Radio 1 he was never allowed to speak because he was just seen as Blue’s joker. “It feels different because I can actually talk, whereas before I didn’t used to talk. The boys would be the ones to answer all the questions,” he said. “I’d stay stuff because I was very passionate about stuff. It would come out wrong half the time, and they would tell me to shut up. By the end of it I didn’t really care. I’d say stuff that was truthful, whereas a lot of people would say stuff you wanted to hear. I’m not to bothered about what people think, I’d rather speak my heart.”
