(WB) 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 late tour stop of Lovato’s Tell Me You Love Me Tour.
