British rapper Lady Sovereign has confirmed rumors that she is a lesbian, insisting she would have “come out” sooner if her publicists hadn’t talked her out of it.
Sovereign, 24, has been plagued by rumors about her sexuality for years.
She had people talking even more after revealing she liked same-sex trysts while appearing on the British reality TV show Celebrity Big Brother. The rapper stated, “Magazines would always ask about it but they 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 s**t.
She went on to say that she didn’t want to 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.”
