Raven-Symone: 'My Sexual Orientation Is Mine'

Raven-Symone has taken to her Twitter page to address rumors she’s gay.

“I’m living my PERSONAL life the way I’m happiest. I’m not one, in my 25 year career to disclose who I’m dating. and I shall not start now,” the 26-year-old actress wrote.

The tweet comes after a tabloid reported Raven was living in a NYC condo with America’s Next Top Model contestant AzMarie Livingston.

“My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m datings to know. I’m not one for a public display of my life,” she added in another tweet. “However that is my right as a HUMAN BEing whether straight or gay. To tell or not to tell. As long as I’m not harming anyone.”

“I am a light being made from love. And my career is the only thing I would like to put on display, not my personal life. Kisses!” she said in a final tweet about the rumors.

    Tell it girl!!!

    Good for her. It’s nobody’s right to pry into her relationship, whether she’s a public figure or not. The media and people have got to learn how to mind their own business.

  • susan

    this is one of the nicest ways of telling people to mind their own damned business i’ve read in a long time.

  • http://justjared.com Monica

    I don’t care if she is, so is she gay or not?

  • Asha

    What she neds to be worried about is fixing those horrible eyebrows.

  • GoldenBlitch

    Back off media. It’s HER life, and you have NOTHING to do with it.

  • solecito

    I couldn’t care less about the private lives of celebrities. All I care about is that they have REAL talent and deliver when performing.

  • Kaleba

    its her life and she can live it anyway she wants!!

    Mother Says “Dying on Mothers Day Wasn’t the Worst Present My 16yr Old Son Ever Gave Me” http://wp.me/p2iXGn-Ta < now this is crazy

  • susan

    to Monica

    it is NONE of your business.

  • Sean

    In other words, yup she’s gay.

  • Lalalove

    Jared chose her worst picture. LOL.

  • Ace

    @Sean: You don’t know that so stfu.

  • Aimée F

    terrible eyebrows

  • Tracy

    ….that being said, she sure didn’t deny it! She’s a childhood star with a great career still and I’ve never heard of any rehab, wild partying etc…she’s obviously doing something right. Let the girl be happy.

  • http://beautyofmind.blogg.se Ina

    why does anyone care?!

  • naturegirl

    Raven you are nice because when i read that caption of the garbage rag yesterday i said you should tell them it’s none of your fvcking business!!!

  • tyree

    So she didn’t deny being a lesbian. I think the answer is then yes she is a lesbian. Whatever, just like she said as long as she’s not hurting anyone.

  • Alison

    her eyebrows look particularily strange in this picture..

  • @

    just assume everyone in Hollywood is gay..Only super talented heterosexuals become famous. Homosexuals are the ones who choose careers in entertainment, it’ just in their nature to be in that field. So just accept it and mind your business.

  • national enquirer

    IF YOU ARE A CELEBRITY YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO A PRIVATE LIFE!!! YOU WANTED TO BE FAMOUS SO THE PUBLIC HAS A RIGHT TO KNOW YOUR SECRETS YOU CAN’T PICK AND CHOSE WHAT YOU WANT US TO KNOW. YOU ARE GAY!

  • Todd

    Yeah, this absolutely means that she is a dyke. To those of you who say that it doesn’t mean anything – you’re wrong. It’s no different then when someone takes teh Fifth. You know they’re guilty cuz only guilty people take the Fifth, and only homos say that sexual orientation does not matter.

  • o

    TALKING ABOUT not talking about it GIVES IT ATTENTION
    she is making the Kevin Spacey mistake
    as in adressing the issue at all
    just ignore the rumours and get on with your life
    DONT SAY ANYTHING(but it’s too late now)

    talking about not talking about it is like peeking out of the closet, i seee youuuu

  • lori

    whoa really bad eyebrows.

  • sdf

    If anyone watched the cosby show, they would know those are her NATURAL EYEBROWS. She can’t do anything other than fill them in, and she has done that plenty of times. But, not everyone wants to walk around looking like Joan Crawford.

  • Panda

    You tell ‘em Ray! <3

  • Whycantipost

    That Az-Marie girl is gorgeous, I don’t blame Raven if she is hooking up with her;)

  • Annie

    To me this reads like Raven is saying she’s gay but she doesn’t want to become some sort of poster child for the gay community. I say fair enough, especially since this lady already supports gay rights. She isn’t under any obligations. Best of luck, Raven!

  • https://twitter.com/#!/SynaiAshford Sy’nai

    Her eyebrows haven’t changed since her Olivia days!! So cute.

  • Kevin

    Gay…..

  • Spanx

    wtf happened to her face

  • aimee

    still remember her in hanging with mr cooper..

  • Pookie

    are those eyebrows for real?

  • who

    Tabs are lowlife scum who have no business in anybody’s private life, this is the classiest response to them I’ve ever read. Do your thing Raven.

  • johnny badd

    no offense but from her comments, i would say she is gay or @ least bi lol

  • Phoenix

    to be honest she is either bi or straight, remember a couple of years ago when the media said she got pregnant and had a love child with some wannabe rapper/ actor, so my guess is she’s had enough with men spreading rumors like that and try something different, hey, rihanna is doing the same thing just 2 weeks ago she was holding hands after a date with some girl she went out with, my point is we should be focusing on this woman’s career not her sexual orientation, cause most likely she is straight, in my opinion, she just doesnt like to mix business with pleasure within the media, and even if she is gay or bi i will still support her and her career…

  • Jasmine

    She has that “I-just-bit-something-sour” Olsen twin face. Notttt a very attractive face to pull.

  • koisha

    THEN QUIT FORCING YOUR PERVERTED HOMOSEXUAL VALUES DOWN SOCIETIES THROAT !!!!! I BET YOU WILL GO AROUND AND START PROMOTING HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE/ADOPTION YET AT THE SAME TIME YOU WANT YOUR PRIVACY ?????? SICK !!!! AMERICA DOES NOT CARE ABOUT WHAT YOU DO IN YOUR BEDROOM YET AT THE SAME TIME… DONT EXPECT AMERICA TO ACCEPT YOUR PERVERTED AND ABOMINABLE LIFESTYLE !!!!!

  • R

    well she is obvi gay

  • losa

    When someone says that her sexual orientation is mine that means she’s gay. And when you become famous and you’re a star you’re personal life is not just yours. The people want to know the details of you’re personal life not just watch you in the tv or listen to your songs. Raven you have to accept this!

  • Texas Swede

    Good for her. So many who started as young as she are so messed up. Good to see she is on the right track and in charge of herself. You go young woman. This old woman is proud of you.

  • kimmi

    So she’s gay?

  • mchammer

    @solecito: So why the f*ck are you on this site.

  • JrReadaholic

    My interpretation of this: she IS in a relationship with a female, but it does NOT necessarily mean she’s a lesbian. I’ve known multiple legitimately bisexual women in my life. One was married to a man, then after becoming divorced met a woman whom she fell hard for and dated for a year, and then they broke up and now that woman has met a guy and is engaged and I’ve never seen her happier. Some people are not just gay or straight. There seems to be a profuse bias towards bisexuality. Both straight and gay people always act like bisexual people are just fooling themselves or pretending or exploring but will choose one way or the other eventually, and that’s simply not true. Some people are legitimately bisexual. Maybe Raven is, who knows. Her business.

    @Asha:

    What the heck happened there?!

  • monnie

    why cant I post either? Site glitch? Well, bottom line I like the idea of her with Azmarie, cute couple, Azmarie got robbed on AMNTM. What they do in their own bedroom is their own business,
