Rapper Lil Peep comes out as bisexual

The 20-year-old singer and rapper came out publicly on social media on Tuesday (August 8).


US rapper Lil Peep has come out publicly as bisexual.

The New York-born musician, real name Gustav Åhr, opened up about his sexuality in a series of to-the-point posts on social media on Tuesday (August 8).

"Yes I'm bi sexual" he wrote in a simple four-word tweet, before asking followers "who wants a kiss?"

Lil Peep, a rising star of the underground music scene who's generated buzz online over the last two years with tracks including 'White Wine', 'Star Shopping', later shared a picture of himself making a smoothie on Instagram, which he captioned with a statement about his sexual orientation.

"Bi sexual smoothies with lil peep oh my god I'm gay as f**k," he wrote, before adding: "but I still love girls wats going on."

Lil Peep's announcement comes just days before the London-based artist releases his debut album Come Over When You’re Sober (Part One). 

He's set to take the record around the US in a series of live tour dates, which were also unveiled on Tuesday.
