Out Magazine ran a piece about Troye Sivan's original statements calling out a NZ journalist that asked inappropriately him his top/bottom preferences in an interview. In their piece, they criticized Sivan for previously discussing how his album Bloom was about bottoming, and that anal sex shouldn't be a taboo topic.
Sivan responded with his disappointment, and Out Magazine has since updated their piece...but the internet is forver sweaty.
Firstly, Bloom is an album about love. I said that in every single interview i did about the album. Suggesting that i made the entire album about bottoming is over sexualising me + my work, and is reductive— troye (@troyesivan) August 29, 2019
I speak about sex in my music on my terms, when I’m in control, and writing music that is going to be close to my heart forever. That does not open the flood gates + give anyone a pass on basic manners and allow them to ask about the ins and outs of what i do in bed— troye (@troyesivan) August 29, 2019
I highly doubt anyone would ask any of my straight peers explicit questions about who does what to who in their relationship, no matter the content of their music. I don’t think artists should have to expect to be asked about that when they show up to work in the morning— troye (@troyesivan) August 29, 2019
There’s no shame in anal sex or any kind of sex - i just don’t want to talk about it over the phone to a complete stranger— troye (@troyesivan) August 29, 2019
