    It almost seems like a trend with all these celebrities coming out. I honestly don’t care what sex you prefer, it’s your life, not mine.

    @kathryn:
    It’s already started. His sexuality shouldn’t determine whether you listen to his music or not.

  • Uhmm

    There’s a blind that a popular rapper is coming out in the next coming days…not even joking.

  • Gossipgirl

    Did any of these dumb ass celebrities tweet about the bravery of the men and women fighting overseas on July 4th? Didn’t think so. So now coming out as bisexual is “bravery”.
