Rebecca Black, who rose to fame when her song “Friday” went viral in 2011, has come out as queer.
Black spoke about her sexual orientation with co-hosts Jack Dodge and Amy Ordman on the podcast Dating Straight. Said Black, of not having spoken about it till now: “I made a conscious decision not to ‘come out.’ I guess people starting asking and I stopped not responding. I’m still in the process it feels like.”
Added Black, of how she identifies: “Every day is different. It’s something over the past few years, I’ve been having a lot of conversations with myself about. To me, the word queer feels really nice. I’ve dated a lot of different types of people and I don’t really know what the future holds. Some days, I feel a little more on the ‘gay’ side than others.”
