Outspoken UK grime MC Lady Sovereign has revealed she is gay.
Lady Sovereign confirmed the news in a recent interview with DIVA magazine.
"Magazines would always ask about it but [questions about my sexuality] would get stopped by my publicists. It was my choice, too, because I was a bit worried about it but now I don’t really give a sh*t, " she explained.
"You can’t hide away forever. It’s just stupid and now I’ve come out I feel a lot more comfortable with myself. But it was a bit scary back then because some people do have horrible opinions.”
The news is somewhat unsurprising given past reports about the MC. Last year Perez Hilton reported that Lady Sovereign and Katy Perry had "locked themselves in a bathroom" at a party. And later speaking with an Australian radio station, Lady Sovereign confessed, "I've seen parts of Katy Perry I shouldn't have seen."
A stint on the UK's Celebrity Big Brother also saw Lady Sovereign confirm she was more attracted to girls than boys, and that she hadn't had a boyfriend in years.
Lady Sovereign last album release was 2009's Jigsaw which spawned the single "So Human".
