Tyler, the Creator is an up and down, here and there kind of artist. The American rapper has hinted at being gay for several years, with tongue-in-cheek Tweets and hints in interviews, yet he has also released an album (2011s Goblin) with over 200 homophobic slurs. With homosexuality and homophobia both on the cards for Tyler, the Creator, it's hard to know whether or not he's out and proud or still closeted. The answer may have been revealed in Tyler's latest album, Flower Boy, where he alludes at coming out.
Tyler, the Creator Comes Out
In Tyler, the Creator's latest album, Flower Boy, several lyrics seem to reveal the artists sexuality. In "Ain't Got Time," he raps '“Next line, I'll have ’em like whoa / I've been kissing white boys since 2004.,' and in "Garden State" he references Frank Ocean, who has come out. In it, he says, 'Truth is, since a youth kid, thought it was a phase / Thought it'd be like the Frank; poof, gone / But it's still goin' on.'
So while he does seem to be stating that he is gay, it's hard to know for sure because Tyler, the Creator is one curvy dude (ie. he isn't straight.) Enter:
So, Feliciathegoat could be anything right? A lady named Felicia who got on the wrong side of Tyler and has now, deservedly, been called a goat; a farm animal that just looked like a Felicia; or someone who climbs vertical mountains and is the best at it i.e. the Greatest Of All Time*. But in this case, it's none other than Tyler, the Creator's Instagram account.
His/Feliciathegoat's latest Instagram post reveals the worldwide release of One Star & Golf le Fleur, a project he's working on with Converse. It also states that the store locations can be found on his golf clothing site - Golfwang. Golfwang is Tyler, the Creator's side project, and previously, he has released a range that supports the gay pride movement.
Tyler, the Creator's partnership with Converse was announced shortly after releasing Flower Boy. You can watch the video below.
*A 'goat' can also be when you tuck back your balls and dick, and then bend over thus resembling the back of a goat. According to the rules of the game, the person who looks gets 4 kicks in the ass.
