Kehlani broke down her sexuality, all the way down to who she is least attracted to, in a series of tweets on Sunday.
“cuz i keep geddin asked.. i'm queer,” Kehlani wrote in a now-deleted tweet. “Not bi, not straight. I'm attracted to women, men, REALLY attracted to queer men, non binary people, intersex people, trans people. lil poly pansexual papi hello good morning. does that answer your questions?”
“And since we on that… i'm the LEAST attracted to straight men, y'all really adorable sometimes tho. bisexual men really are little gifts from god tho,” she added.
The 22-year-old singer deleted the last tweet about her being the least sexually attracted to straight men after it appeared some straight male fans weren’t pleased.
“Let's play the ‘guess who's the only people tweakin and offended about my tweets HINT: it rhymes with ‘braight ben,'” Kehlani tweeted.
Kehlani also explained that she chooses to identify as queer instead of gay because she didn’t like the label saying who she is attracted to.
“I felt gay always insisted there was still a line drawn as to which ‘label’ of human i was attracted when i really jus be walking around thinking ERRYBODY FINE,” she tweeted.
After a fan pointed out that queer is still considered a slur by some members of the LGBT community, Kehlani said she chooses to reclaim the word but apologized for offending anyone.
“Damn i didn't know that!! if there's anyone out there i've ever offended with the word, i'm sorry! i'm with the reclaiming of the word but if there's any1 day loves me dat isn't, i sorry i lurvvv u,” she tweeted.
Kehlani has incorporated her sexuality into her music including her recent single “Honey,” which is a love song to another woman.
Kehlani and Demi Lovato caused fan speculation that they were dating after the pair locked lips on stage during the last tour stop of Lovato’s Tell Me You Love Me Tour.

Shania Twain has apologized for saying she would have voted for Donald Trump.
In an interview with the Guardian, the Canadian country singer explained she felt Trump was an “honest” candidate.
“I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don’t want bulls**t. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?” Twain said.
Now, Twain is backtracking on her earlier statement and says her response deserved “more context.” She also says she doesn’t “hold any common moral beliefs” with Trump.
“I would like to apologise [sic] to anybody I have offended in a recent interview with the Guardian relating to the American President. The question caught me off guard. As a Canadian, I regret answering this unexpected question without giving my response more context,” Twain tweets. “I am passionately against discrimination of any kind and hope it’s clear from the choices I have made, and the people I stand with, that I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current President.”
She added, “I was trying to explain, in response to a question about the election, that my limited understanding was that the President talked to a portion of America like an accessible person they could relate to, as he was NOT a politician.”
However, some fans weren’t willing to accept Twain’s apology.
While other fans didn’t feel she needed to apologize for having a different political opinion.
