Trey Songz: I'm Not Gay

Trey

Earlier this week singer, rapper and actor Trey Songz was the apparent victim of a Twitter hoax that alleged he was gay and ready to come out. A photoshopped tweet attributed to the singer's account read, "I think it’s time to finally tell my fans. All games and jokes aside…I’m gay,” according to Hollywoodlife.com. The tweet quickly went viral. However, Trey has since come forward to refute the rumors: 

The things you people craft up with hatred in your hearts. The things people believe without question, or validity, all baffles me.

— Trey Songz (@TreySongz) March 26, 2014

Photoshop and a retweet is all people need to believe, any and everything. I feel bad for the impressionable, no minds of their own.

If I'm gay then Tupac bringing me a ounce for this session wit Biggie tomorrow. No weapon. #LOVE

  3. *deep sigh* This would be called a micro-aggression. A form of racism so small most people wouldn't notice. Try Songz is a singer, not a rapper. He's as much a rapper as Taylor Swift is. Thank you.

  4. His response is textbook homophobia. Fascinating.

  5. I don't see any homophobia in that response. I see anger that someone is forging tweets from him, which is perfectly understandable. But I don't read anything other than frustration into his response.

  6. I still can't believe in this day and age people still use gay 'coming out' as a derisive tool.
    Trey Songz should actually take this as compliment since once gay rumors begin it usually means that you are an attractive guy.

  7. What's he saying? Tupac is bringing him an ounce of what? Whatever.

  8. What did I miss? The headline for this piece has him quoted "I'm not gay," but I don't read those words anywhere in his tweets.

    Trey Gey, and everybody close to him knows it. [yawn]

  9. There is no homophobia in those tweets. He's calling out the people who made the fake tweets and the people dumb enough to believe them. He didn't even say "I'm not gay" he used sarcasm to convey that with the tupac and biggie tweet.

    Yes labeling him a rapper when he's a singer because he's black is definitely a micro-aggression.

  11. Derrick I used to really love this site but it's subtle deluge of racism has become too much. It was ok when it was the occassional commenter but when the writers for the site partake it's unaccaptable.

    Posted by: JP | Mar 28, 2014 12:41:25 PM


  12. Whatever.

  13. May I still write he looks hot?

  14. It would be nice if for once a celebrity whether they were gay or not did not feel the need to respond to a gay rumor as if in this day and age it'll still salacious news. And if he or she did decide to respond, it would basically be "I'm not gay, but if I were I would see no shame in it."

  15. Spacecadet they reply to it because it's not true. It's not like he saiD "hell no I'm not gay." I mean...truth be told he didn't firmly deny it but whatever lol. I'm more offended that the writer of this article referred to him as a rapper when he's very far from it.

    Posted by: JP | Mar 28, 2014 1:01:29 PM


  16. His response was extra but that's because gay rumors have plagued his entire career and the only people lining his c-list pockets are women who desperately want to have sex with him. This is pretty tame compared to some of the gay accusations, rumors and blind items he's been previously linked to. He's more than likely gay.

  17. Did Kevin Lanflisi have anything to do with those tweets, I wonder? He's surfaced again after a couple of months off I see.

    Joe in CT, I think the reference to Tupac is that Tupac is dead and gone, so just as it's an impossibility for him to bring Trey an ounce, it's impossible that Trey is gay.

    Trey is allusive, obviously.

  18. Who's the racist bigot?
    This post starts out, "Earlier this week singer, rapper and actor Trey Songz"

    The link to the story has him as a rapper/singer etc. Wikipedia says the same thing and his Myspace account starts by saying, "When his friends heard his perfect tenor voice, however, they pushed him to drop rap and start crooning"

    Looks like the real racist bigots are derrick and JP.

  19. I learnt something new from Towleroad that Trey is a Thug and a rapper
    BTW he didn't respond to a gay rumor.Someone pretending to be him tweeted I'm Gay.
    He informed his followers.If someone pretending to be me tweeted, I'm a Republican.I would inform my followers that it was a fake tweet.Nothing against Republicans Im just not one.

  20. Who is the story has been edited my friend.

    Posted by: JP | Mar 28, 2014 2:17:17 PM


  21. JP, the point of my comment was not regarding the truth of the rumor but the subject. Why the need to deny it? If he were accused of being a vegetarian does he need to issue a press conference clearing the air that no, someone was posing as him and posted that he was a vegetarian? The act of denial is insinuating that being gay is something bad.

  22. SPACECADET - That is exactly what Matt Damon said when interviewed a couple of years ago about his not saying anything when gay rumors about him and Ben Affleck were flying in the early days of his career.

    Damon did not comment on the rumors for years and, when he did, it was to say that he didn't see anything wrong with being gay, therefore he couldn't understand the hoopla and didn't want to affirm it by responding to it.

    Damon all but said exactly what you wrote as being the desired response: "I'm not gay, but if I were I would see no shame in it."

  23. Firstly, he has every right to deny a rumor that he sees fit to if it's not true. And it's not like he said "I'm not gay, I'm a real man" blah blah. Furthermore, it's a bit unfair to compare Matt Damon and Trey Songs. One is an older actor with a largely adult fanbase of men and women. Trey Songs is a 20something singer whose only fans are millions of teenage swooning girls.

  24. @ "Looks like the real racist bigots are derrick and JP."

    JP and Derrick (the younger one) are not just talking about this one news story or these comments that followed in this discussion. They're talking about what they've read on this blog for months now since they discovered it.

    I've been on Towleroad for nine years so it doesn't phase me. I've got four more years bebore I'll be free. Until then, I'm going to "read" these racist b.tches.

    Anyway, Trey is cute, but he's too skinny. I'm an old b.tch, and I like my men with lots of beef and bubbles. Whether Trey is Gay is of no relevance to me...unless he puts on about 30 more pounds.

  25. Oh, f.ck, I messed up my own joke.

    It will be 3 more years before I'll be free. Nine plus three equals TWELVE.

    Then again, maybe THIRTEEN years a slave on Towleroad for me, and then I'm going to do a Nat Turner on Rick.
