Friday Singer Rebecca Black Reveals That She Identifies As 'Queer'

Friday Singer Rebecca Black Reveals That She Identifies As 'Queer'

Rebecca Black, who most of us remember for her viral song 'Friday', has revealed on a podcast that she identifies as queer.

Black, who started her career with the much-mocked song aged just 13, but is now a popular YouTuber with more than 1.46m subscribers, spoke out on the 'Dating Straight' podcast, hosted by Jack Dodge and Amy Ordman.

The 22-year-old revealed that she'd just been through a break-up with a woman, adding that she identifies as 'queer'.

She told the show: "I made a conscious decision to not, like, 'come out'.

"People started asking and I stopped not responding. I'm still in the process, it feels like."

Clarifying her identity, she added: "Every day is different, it's something that over the past few years I've obviously been having a lot of conversations with myself about.

"To me, the word 'queer' feels really nice. I have dated a lot of different types of people, and I just don't really know what the future holds.

"Some days, I feel a little more on the 'gay' side than others."

Well, regardless of all this, it seems as if Black is struggling with the exact same things as everyone else just now with regards to the fact that we can't actually go out and date anyone, no matter who we - or they - are.

That's fine, though. She revealed that she's not up for dating anyone just now anyhow.

Black added: "I don't really want to date right now, even if I did, I have no choice.

"Unless I want to get on Raya and Skype date them? No."

This isn't the first time that she has alluded to this sort of revelation, either. On her YouTube channel earlier this year, Black was asked about whether she is part of the LGBTQ community, and responded: "One of the things that I love about the LGBTQ community is that they embrace inclusiveness.

"I definitely see sexuality as being on a spectrum. You can definitely be on one end of the spectrum or the other.

"With there being a spectrum, there is this huge middle ground. I definitely see myself as being on that spectrum."

Black shot into the public consciousness back in 2011 when she was a young teenager. She released 'Friday', a song that became ubiquitous as it was declared 'the world's worst song' by critics.

Fair play to her, though, she's turned it into a successful career on YouTube, and now boasts the kind of subscriber following that others could only dream of.
