Hip hop star Tyler The Creator has been toying with the idea of his s*xuality now for years. At times the rapper has told fans that he's "gay" . . only to to backtrack later, and claim that he was just trolling them.
But now the rapper seems really ready to come out of the closet.
Earlier this week, Tyler shamelessly flirted with Drake. After Drake commented on Tyler’s cover art with multiple bullseye emojis, the always colorful artist wrote back, “Send nudes bro.”
And now this. Yesterday Tyler was seen prancing around Beverly Hills wearing a pink Chanel jacket - that's made women. He also was wearing mommy jeans.
Here are the pics:
Tyler's new album IGOR marks the first full-length project since 2017’s Flower Boy. The 12-track effort features guest appearances from Kanye West, Playboi Carti and Charlie Wilson, among others. He spoke about the album in a recent interview with Beats 1 and explained why he doesn’t promote his material months in advance.
“I hate people who hype sh*t for months in,” Tyler said. “I think now people feel obligated to always let everyone know what the f*ck they’re doing, and I hate that. People don’t even have privacy."
With his sixth full-length album, 'IGOR', Tyler has moved away from the childish provocations of his past and created a spooky, woozy, reverb-heavy wall of synths, manipulated vocals, Japanese City Pop-inspired keys and layered, distorted soul samples. Less a rap album than a 39-minute-long expression of sound and faint summer longing. The titular Igor appears to act as both the album's unrequited narrative foil ("I want your company, I need your company, I want you to want for me") and his heightened alter ego ("If the cop says my name, bitch I'm Igor.")
