West Coast rapper Kreayshawn opens up on her sexuality in the new issue of GQ magazine, reaffirming her interest in the same sex, however, refuting the title of fully bi-sexual.
Within the March 2012 feature, Kreay clarifies her stance toward ladies.
There's a music video from before she was famous called "Online Fantasy": Kreayshawn's in a sheer lace robe when a soft-looking girl wearing a bra apparates through her laptop screen and they commence kissing and heavy petting. It's all wonderfully self-serious and terrible, not to mention lit like a laser-tag palace. (Kreay told me she is bisexual, but not that bisexual: "I'm, like, a person who likes love. And I can find love in any type of person. I've dated girls and I've liked girls. But they're usually straight girls, so it never works out. I mean, I'm not that gay, so I don't have the energy to convince someone else to be gay, you know?") (GQ)
Last year, Kreay hinted at her sexual orientation and said she did not take gender too seriously.
"As far as relationships go, it hasn't really been on my mind. I can't really speak for anyone else, but I'm not a raging lesbian, I can tell you that. I'm an occasional lesbian, but it's more for me about a personal connection. I'm a creative person. I'm a busy person. I'm not seeking anything out be it color or gender or anything. I'm just out here in the free world doing the free thing." (Complex)
A few months back, the West Coast rapper jokingly described her ability to pick up women.
"I'm a rapper, I'm a graphic designer director, model, deejay and a professional b*tch snatcher," Kreayshawn said. "There's a lot of people that want to push you down. One, for being a female and one for being white. It's hard but I don't see it like that. In Oakland, that's how you grew up...The best about everything that's going on is I have my head on my shoulders, I know what I want, I know my vision and it's not like I signed this record deal blindly -- whatever happens, happens. I know that I'm a good person and that I'm smart and funny. If the music thing doesn't work out, I'm talented at a million other things." ("Carson Daly")
Outside of marital talk, she recently discussed her forthcoming debut LP.
The album is almost finished, she says, and features a number of styles of music -- from Baltimore club music to New Orleans juke. "I don't really like ever doing the same thing twice," Kreayshawn says. "Unless it was really good. Like if you eat somewhere really good, maybe you'll go eat there twice." The inevitable question is whether she can turn her "Gucci Gucci" fame into something long-lasting. Or whether she'll end up another person of the viral video era whose 15 minutes of fame came and left. "If the album doesn't have a hit," Kreayshawn says. "I don't care. I'm mobbin.' I'm mobbin' real hard. If something goes wrong, I'll just take all my money and sell hella drugs. Then make a song about that. Then I'll have another hit." She pauses for a second. "I'm just playing. Kinda." (Fres Nobee)
