Tyler, the Creator Seems to Confirm Sexuality Rumors: 'I Had a Boyfriend When I Was Fifteen.'
"If that's not open minded, I don't know what is."
Tyler, the Creator is as confusing as ever with another day of speculation about his sexuality.
With the release of his latest album Flower Boy in July, Tyler, the Creator fans quickly noticed some of the lyrics seemed to refer the rapper coming out as gay. On a track called "I Ain’t Got Time," Tyler raps "I been kissing white boys since 2004." He also talks about struggling to hide who is in "Garden Shed": "Truth is, since you kid, I thought it was a phase/Thought it would be like the Frank poof, gone/But, it’s still going on."
Tyler refused to comment on the lyrics following the release of the album, so rumors around his sexuality continued to fly. But earlier today on Know Wave's Koopz Tunes radio show, the Off Future rapper opened up about an adolescent relationship for the first time.
"I had a boyfriend when I was fifteen in fucking Hawthorne," he casually throws into the conversation with the radio host. "If that's not open minded, I don't know what is."
However, since the show earlier today, Tyler has already backtracked a bit.
\u201cfigure of speech to get koopz 'open minded' point across, i was single at 15 haha\u201d— T (@T) 1502921473
Not quite sure what that means, but Tyler definitely gets some kind of joy out of trolling his fans.
