Lady Sovereign: I'm Gay and 'Don't Give a Sh*t' About Hiding It


British rapper Lady Sovereign, who I've written about here before in the context of her arrest for assault after she spat in a bouncer's face at a gay Australian club last September, has decided to talk about her sexuality in an interview with DIVA magazine.

Says Sovereign:

"Magazines would always ask about it but [questions about my sexuality] would get stopped by my publicists. It was my choice, too, because I was a bit worried about it but now I don’t really give a shit. You can’t hide away forever. It’s just stupid and now I’ve come out I feel a lot more comfortable with myself. But it was a bit scary back then because some people do have horrible opinions."

  5. Totally love the Sov! Her first single was a massive hit, the follow up album, not so much. Now that she's out, hopefully by being herself, the attitude and middle finger make it's way back into her music. Thanks for the refresh!!!

  6. When she was in SF a couple years ago, there was a hilarious altercation where she refused to freestyle battle Jelly Donut (a local comedian). Brilliantness ensued. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZwQ2VqK_1A
