'I'm queer. not bi, not straight. i'm attracted to women, men, REALLY attracted to queer men, non binary people, intersex people, trans people,' she explains in a tweet.

AceShowbiz - Kehlani has clarified her sexuality once and for all. On Sunday, April 22, the R&B singer took to Twitter to answer people's question about her sexuality after she kissed Demi Lovato onstage earlier this month. Kehlani identifies as queer in a series of deleted tweets.

"cuz I keep geddin asked, I'm queer. 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?" she tweeted.

She added in another tweet, "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."

When asked why she used "queer" instead of "gay," she explained, "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."

But some people found her words offensive, prompting the "Gangsta" singer to apologize. "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 wrote.

The "Ring" hitmaker later explained why she deleted her previous tweets claiming she was queer. "i retracted my queer tweet because i am being corrected about the way in which i listed the gender spectrum and i'm super super sensitive to being offensive especially when i'm only trying to appreciate," she said. "point is, i love love, and that love lies in every gender there is."

"i always want to be corrected & educated when i am wrong. if i tweet something any form of incorrect, please let me know because i have a massive responsibility by having a platform," she added.

She continued, "(repetitive so it's suuuper clear) my indentifying as queer wasn't the issue, it was the singling out of trans & intersex which sounded transphobic, ignorant and to some, sounding like fetishization. which is completely wrong, not my intention, and something to say sorry about."

The revelation arrives after the singer, who will turn 23 on Tuesday, April 24, shared a kiss with fellow musician Demi during the former's last U.S. leg of her "Tell Me You Love Me" tour on April 2. Kehlani, who served as the opening act that night, got steamy with Demi while performing "Lonely".
