One of Selena Gomez’s Ex-Flings Just Publicly Came Out as “Half Gay”
When a fan asked him if he was gay back in 2014, famous DJ Diplo simply replied, “everyone is a lil gay,” sparking questions about his sexuality. Since then, the music producer who famously dated Katy Perry and ~bragged~ to Zedd about having sex with Selena Gomez, hasn’t spoken much about his sexual orientation… until now, that is.
Yesterday, the 37-year-old tweeted rapper Angel Haze and revealed that his is, in fact, partially gay.
@AngelHaze I’m only half gay and I don’t play guitar let’s hang

Diplo’s admission comes just a few months after Olly Murs and James Franco both revealed that they are a little bit gay based on the Kinsey scale, which “attempts to describe a person’s sexual experience or response at a given time. It uses a scale from 0, meaning exclusively heterosexual, to 6, meaning exclusively homosexual.”
But also similar to what happened with the “Troublemaker” singer, many people questioned why Katy’s ex referred to himself as “half gay” rather than bisexual.

Whichever label he prefers to use, we give kudos to the DJ for using this time of tragedy to be honest with the world.

Colton (sort of) addressed speculations concerning his sexuality when he responded to a Tumblr follower's remarks after her discovering Colton's "secret" gay past.
Colton's quick and cryptic response, "Was it a secret?" has lead fans to believe that perhaps he does not identify as entirely straight, if at all.
