Tyler, the Creator Addresses His Sexuality & More in ‘Fantastic Man’ Interview

Tyler, the Creator is back again talking about his sexuality, this time in the Autumn/Winter 2018 issue of Fantastic Man.

Asked about the “I Ain’t Got Time” lyrics in which the rapper: “I’ve been kissing white boys since 2004”—a line that raised more questions about his sexual orientation, the rapper said it’s all still a grey area because of his privacy.

“It’s still such a grey area with people, which is cool with me,” he explained. “Even though I’m considered loud and out there, I’m private, which is a weird dichotomy. The juxtaposition of loud and quiet is weird.”

And asked about why he decided to finally speak about his sexuality in the 2017 album Flower Boy? he refuses to give a full answer. “It’s a literal question and the thing about humans is we hate not having an answer,” he explained. “We hate not being in the know. So people will bullshit answers, make shit up, instead of being just, like—I don’t know. There are some things that are just unexplainable.”

However, this ambiguity didn’t stop the rapper from talking about his infatuation with “beautiful people,” specifically a number of guys he met in Paris this summer.

Asked if he has ever been in love with the same sex, he said: “I don’t want to talk about that. Um, that’s the next record.”

He said a lot more, about his decision to never get drunk and more.
