Rapper Tyler, the Creator has spoken about his sexuality in a brand new interview. 

The 27-year-old rapper made headlines over a song from his 2017 album Flower Boy in which he revealed he had been "kissing white boys" for more than a decade. 

In an interview with Fantastic Man this week, Tyler was questioned about the lyrics in the song 'I Ain't Got Time', prompting the rapper to open up about his sexuality.

He said: "It's still such a grey area with people, which is cool with me. Even though I'm considered loud and out there, I'm private, which is weird dichotomy.

"The juxtaposition of loud and quiet is weird," he added. 

When asked why he decided to talk about his sexuality on Flower Boy, Tyler explained: "I don't know. It's a literal question and the thing about humans is we hate not having an answer.

"We hate not being in the know. So people will bullshit answers, make shit up, instead of being just, like... I don't know. There are some things that are just unexplainable." 

The interviewer also noted that during their conversion Tyler took a call from Jaden Smith and spoke briefly to fellow rapper A$AP Rocky before concluding both calls by asking them to "Send dick pics". 

When asked about the comments, Tyler explained: "I always tell people to send dick pics when I hang up, because it's so awkward. Like, what the f*ck did you say?"

The rapper found himself hitting headlines last month when rapper Eminem called him a "f**got b*tch" in his new album Kamikaze
