Tyler, The Creator Explains His 'I Had A Boyfriend At 15' Comment

By Daryl Nelson

Yesterday, we shared an interview with Tyler, The Creator in which he claimed to have been romantically involved with another guy as a teenager. This came after he said something similar in the tracks  'Garden Shed' and 'I Ain't Got Time' off his Flower Boy album.

"I had a boyfriend when I was 15 in fucking Hawthorne," he said on Know Wave's Koopz Tunes' radio show . "If that's not open minded, I don't know what is."
Right after that interview, folks on the Internet were scratching their heads with confusion as to whether the former Odd Future leader is really gay, bi-sexual or just fooling around with everyone. So to address some of the chatter, Tyler took to Twitter and said he was just trying to make a point about how open minded he is during that interview. (Although he didn't deny being in some sort of romantic relationship with a guy at 15.)

What are your thoughts on Tyler and this whole thing about his sexuality? Do you think he's just toying with everyone or slowly coming out of the closet?
