Here’s What Lauv Had To Say When People Guessed His Sexuality
The internet is quite a tricky place because virtually everyone is free to voice their own opinions on something. Sometimes, opinions can be a good thing. But at most times, they can be unwanted for instance in this case. People are assuming Lauv’s sexuality. Some believe that he is gay.
Well, the American singer whose real name is Ari Staprans Leff, has a perfect response to all of this. On his Instagram stories, he posted two snaps where he penned his thoughts on the matter.
When he read the comments about people assuming his sexuality, he just found it funny. Plus, the facepalm emoji he is using doesn’t imply that he finds it as a positive thing.
His sexuality is a matter of his privacy which he won’t like to discuss with the public. Which makes sense because he’s on the spotlight for his music and not his sexuality. Hence, he has made it clear that he doesn’t want to clarify what his sexuality is.
Lauv Disapproves of Homophobic Comments
Moreover, Lauv is disappointed at people negatively commenting on how his being gay is somehow a bad thing. While not confirming he is gay, the singer does not understand why that would be something that even matters.
The possible homophobic comments probably compelled him to voice his opinion on the matter. A few months ago when Lauv collaborated with Troye Sivan on I’m so tired of love songs, fans were quick to ship them. Many speculated whether the two were an item but it was just speculation. Sivan, an openly gay Australian singer, and former YouTuber is in a committed relationship with his boyfriend Jacob Bixenman.
It was clear that Lauv and Sivan were simply good friends but people are really quick to assume. While assumptions and opinions are a natural and human thing to do, demeaning someone’s sexuality just because it’s not conventional isn’t a good thing. This is probably what Lauv hoped to convey through his Instagram stories. Maybe he’s gay, maybe he isn’t. It shouldn’t matter.
