Halsey Is Single, Samantha Ronson Is Back
Plus, Hayley Kiyoko is nominated for a VMA.
Paris Jackson Clarifies Her Very Special Sexuality
Paris Jackson is not bisexual, OBVIOUSLY, but she’s into girls, OBVIOUSLY, but she’s not gay, OBVIOUSLY, because she is OBVIOUSLY LIKE SO BEYOND LABELS SHE CAN’T EVEN. During a recent “Ask Me Anything” post on Instagram, someone asked the 20-year-old “Are you bi?” To which Paris responded with a series of posts. "That's what you guys call it so I guess but who needs labels," she stated first. Then she added “ I came out when I was 14...I've referred to the community as 'my fellow LGBTQ+' on stage before. I've talked about having a crush on girls when I was 8 in my Rolling Stone article. There are pictures of me kissing girls online... Why are people just now saying this is new?" Because you’re 20, sweet pea, and everything about you is new to the public. Later she elaborated, "And I'm not 'bisexual,' I just love people for people. I don't label myself so please don't label me. Thank you!" THX K BYE. When a fan asked Paris if she was dating Cara Delevingne, who she has been photographed canoodling with a few times, Paris snapped "None of your goddamn business."
What a pleasant person born into extreme wealth and privilege! Good for her, telling her followers to ask her anything and then, instead of simply not responding to a question she didn’t want to answer, berating and cussing out the young fan who asked her anything. But, hey, she’s pretty.
Hayley Kiyoko Nominated For VMA
Hayley Kiyoko, the first out lesbian pop artist to make it in the mainstream, was nominated for a VMA for Best New Artist. The competition for your lesbian jesus (not mine, I low key hate that nickname for Hayley Kiyoko, I find it bizarre to deify celebrities, no matter how talented they might be) is fierce. She’ll face off against Bazzi, Cardi B, Chloe x Halle, Lil Pump and Lil Uzi Vert. Cardi B, who received 10 nominations, is particularly primed to sweep this year’s Video Music Awards. But surely she can spare one for Hayley?
Lesbian Batwoman Is Coming To The CW
The CW is developing a Batwoman series with a lesbian character in the titular role for their 2019 slate. According to Deadline, “In Batwoman, written by Caroline Dries based on the DC characters, armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”
Normally, I’d bet you anything that she’ll be played by the straightest of straight girls, have a diverse love interest who is also an extremely straight actress, and season 1 will be gayngst city. But according to Deadline, Batwoman will be executive produced and written by a lesbian (Caroline Dries) and casting has begun for an “actress, likely a lesbian, to play the role.” WELL SLAP ME BLIND AND CALL ME SALLY, WE GOT A POSSIBLE ACTUAL LESBIAN PLAYING A MAJOR ROLE!!!!!!!! WTF!!!!!! Oh, and she’s Jewish, because why not. Mazel Tov!
Halsey Splits From G-Eazy
Their song “Him & I” may be platinum, but the relationship between Halsey and G-Eazy is over. Halsey announced the split earlier this month in an Instagram story earlier this month. "I normally keep this kind of thing private but provided our public nature I feel I need to inform my fans," she wrote. "G-Eazy and I are taking some apart. I'm eager to continue the upcoming passage of time dedicating myself to my art and career, and the duration of my tour. I wish him the best. Thanks for respecting our privacy at this time." Must suck to hear a song you wrote with your ex about always being together on the radio when you’re no longer together. It looks like Halsey is taking the split hard. She obtusely tweeted “Pumpkin Eater,” sparking rumors that G-Eazy might have cheated on the bisexual singer- as the saying goes, “Cheater, Cheater, Pumpkin Eater.” Then, during a July 6 concert in Michigan, she appeared to tear up while singing “Someone will love you/But someone isn’t me,” during her song “Sorry.”
Last weekend, the post-drama breakup continued with two new developments. During a concert Saturday night, Halsey told the crowd, “I learned recently it’s okay to be alone! Being alone is enough. The second lesson I learned is don’t sleep with your ex.” Rumors mounted when G-Eazy and Demi Lovato (a fellow singer who dates girls and boys, although unlike Halsey, Demi has never labelled herself bisexual) were allegedly spotted holding hands while leaving a Los Angeles nightclub together that same night. G-Eazy has denied rumors of dating Demi, saying she’s “just a friend.”
Who will Halsey date next? Personally, I’m hoping for a loyal girl.
Samantha Ronson Has a Band Now
Your favorite lesbian DJ from the early 2000’s is backish with a new band called “Ocean Park Standoff.” Cofounded by DJ and songwriter Samantha Ronson, the band broke out with the single “Good News,” which was streamed over 16 million times on Spotify and fueled the band’s self-titled debut EP, released earlier this spring. According to Ronson, a song from the EP entitled “If You Were Mine” is about bisexuality. During a recent interview with The Advocate, Samantha answered a question about LGBTQ representation in Ocean Park Standoff’s Music: “I think when one of the three of us is gay [she laughs, obviously referencing herself], it's definitely going to be represented in our songs. But also, I think what I love so much about the three of us together is that we’re all so different. … At the end of the day, love is love. The message is “Choose whichever way you want — but it’ll be better if you’re with me.” Check out the video for “If You Were Mine” above.
