Kehlani is singing it out, very loud and proud.
After revealing that she is gay earlier in the month, the singer and songwriter is making it official. In a now-deleted video, posted Thursday (April 22) on TikTok, Kehlani addressed the speculation surrounding her sexuality.
“I’m just gonna fu**ing say it, because everybody keeps bringing it up to me,” she said before addressing her original announcement on her friend’s Instagram Live on Easter Sunday.
“It’s only like fu**ing 30 people on the live and they’re like, Kehlani, ‘What’s new?’ And I’m like, ‘I finally know I’m a lesbian,’” she continued. “Well, it’s fu**ing true. I am gay, g-gay, gay, gay.”
Kehlani, who turned 26 yesterday, 24th April, said that when she wanted to have “heart-to-hearts” with her family and friends, they were already aware of her sexuality.
I’m like, ‘Guys, I finally know that I’m gay—like, I’m gay gay,’ and they’re like, ‘We know. Duh, stupid. Duh.” she joked.
“I feel like, ‘No. I want you to fall on the floor and be like, ‘Congratulations! We had no idea!’ Everyone’s just like, ‘Duh. You’re the only one who didn’t fu**ing know. The fu**ing closet was glass.”
Added Kehlani, “So I guess I just wanted y’all to know that everyone knew but me.”
According to Bustle, the singer tweeted that she was “queer” in 2018.
“Not bi, not straight. I’m attracted to women, men, REALLY attracted to queer men, non-binary people, intersex people.”
