I did retail. I worked at TJ Maxx before. I did fast food at Shake Shack.
I do want to get more involved with clothing, TV shows, movies.
I still feel normal. Like, I don't feel like I'm a superstar.
I held in being sexually attracted to women for so long that once I got that out of me, the music became easy.
There's a lot of rappers out there, a lot of gay girls expressing themselves; I'm not the first to say it; I'm not the first to rap about it. But I'm the one who broke down those doors that everybody has been trying to break down. I did that. I'm the one who went triple platinum first.
In New York City, it's popular. I used to think to myself, 'Man, there's a lot of gay people out here.' And it had me comfortable: it was like, I can be myself! I used to still try to hide it, until it was really overwhelming - there were just too much girls attracted to me!
