Young Thug Says He’s Not Gay: “I’m the Straightest Man in the World”
Throughout his career, people have speculated that Young Thug is a gay man. In a new interview, Thugger emphatically dismisses that claim.
Speaking with Big Boy on Big Boy's Neighborhood on Wednesday (Aug. 21), Thugger explains his sexuality.
"People say, 'gay,' but nigga..." Thugger says before a dramatic pause where he implies that he's been with a lot of women. "So it's like if people think that I'm gay, they already misjudged. I'm the straightest man in the world. I hate guys. Fuck are you talking about? I'm not even having a threesome with no nigga."
Thugger, who is set to tour with Machine Gun Kelly and more next month, is speaking on claims people have made for years. That speculation increased when he rocked a dress on the cover of his Jeffery project three years ago. He has been romantically involved with Jerrika Karlae for years now.
Elsewhere in the same interview, Thugger says he believes Lil Wayne is too spoiled to like him.
“I think it’s because he just been with Birdman his whole life and he’s just so spoiled to the point where it’s like, he’s really spoiled," Thugger offers. "He’s been a millionaire, he been a superstar since he was 9-years-old. So he don’t know nothing but his way. The first thing that don’t go his way, it probably don’t have nothing in the world to do with me. I’m pretty sure he done sat back and looked at our interviews and any interviews I ever did and he probably get the picture now like, ‘Okay I maybe did too much.’ Maybe he feel like, ‘I done did too much against this young nigga to the point where I can’t even embrace him.’ But that’s even crazier. You supposed to see that and then you’re supposed to speak on that.”
Clearly, Thug was in a talking mood today.
