Lil Uzi Vert Opens Up About Sexuality on New Album ‘Pink Tape’.
Lil Uzi Vert, the influential emo-rap artist, confronts rumors surrounding their sexuality head-on in their highly anticipated album, Pink Tape. The album kicks off with a skit where a woman playfully wakes Vert from their slumber, a recurring theme in their full-length projects.
After the introspective introduction, the Roc Nation-managed rapper expresses their stance on sexuality. In a passionate verse, the “XO Tour Lif3” artist boldly raps, “First of all, I have intimate encounters with multiple partners daily. How can anyone claim Lil Uzi is gay? I engage both in unprotected and protected encounters, balancing the odds before anyone can debate. I desire oral pleasure today, exploring the boundaries of pleasure.”
Lil Uzi Vert defies the stereotypes associated with traditional rappers. Despite their public relationship with City Girls member JT, fans have often questioned their sexual orientation on social media. In a rare interview with o32C Magazine, the lyrically gifted artist explains their decision to adopt the pronouns “them/them.” The Philadelphia native emphasizes the sense of support and acceptance they find within the LGBTQ+ community, providing a newfound sense of belonging. They reflect, “This community offers a unique kind of support that may have been absent throughout your entire life due to the way you were raised. I come from a household where deviating from societal norms was not encouraged.”
