The rapper and journalist quickly move on from dating and discuss other important topics like the news and race relations in the U. Surprisingly, the interviewer doesn’t make any further mention of Em’s Grindr revelation, which seems like something that could have used some clarification, if only for the reader. For those not in the know, Grindr is a dating and hookup app that describes itself as "the world’s largest social networking app for gay, bi, trans, and queer people," and while it did recently adapt to include people across the gender and sexuality spectrum, it is still known primarily as a dating app for men in the LGBT community.But what I feel about his comment is that it's true, I needed a father figure in my life, but I'm not complaining about that. Lil B: I can say they're not very influential in my career, but I'm motivated; I work hard to show my mother that her child has a purpose.My father has played a part unconsciously when I was younger, which he probably didn't know,. If I was a comedian and I was up on stage, people would think that's funny, because I'm a funny comedian. Throughout the years I feel if God promotes me to stay alive and have more years to live on Earth, which I pray and I would love to, people are going to see my personality, and they're going to see more of me and be able to understand me more.Like Soulja Boy and Justin Bieber, Lil B has almost single-handedly used the internet to put himself into the spotlight.In a few short years as a solo artist without a major-label deal, Lil B has recorded almost 4,000 songs, gained over 200,000 Twitter followers and signed a touring deal with Live Nation.If that guy can do it, I can be myself too, and if that rapper can be himself and be free and be happy and still hold masculinity and love people and love flowers and just be happy being alive, well then, I can do that too." CNN: You're big Twitter fan, and recently rapper Rhymefest tweeted that after he spoke to California artist Xzibit and listened to your music, his response was, "Homeboy needed a dad in his life." Lil B: I'm going to say, who is Rhymefest?
Lil B's supporters and fans laud him for his gender-defying self-proclamations that he's "pretty b----" and a "princess" while producing songs inspired by untraditional hip-hop topics like Miley Cyrus and Ellen De Generes.
"I don't want to take anything away from what I think he's trying to do," Gyant said of the album, which is set for release in a few months, according to Lil B.
"I really do feel that it is less about social evolution, and it's more about making a name for yourself and selling your project." Lil B sat down with CNN to talk about the inspiration for the title, the death threats that have followed and why he's the rap version of Lady Gaga. CNN: What were you thinking when you named the album "I'm Gay?
If it was all just for a laugh, congrats on the new album anyway.
It’s unclear what the "Walk on Water" star meant by his Grindr comment, but if this was his way of coming out as gay, bisexual, or perhaps just queer or questioning, congrats to him on being open and honest with himself!
