The 23-year-old entertainer chatted with the mag about his dating life, meeting girls via direct message, rumors he is gay, and more. Check it:
On being single: “My current situation is that Iām very much single, but Iām trying to be as open to people who can inspire me in some way.ā
On the Kate Hudson rumors: “Out of my best effort to respect her and her privacy, Iām not going to say if we had sex or not. But we did have a beautiful connection. Even now I have so much admiration and respect. Sheās amazing.ā
On the gay rumors: āThereās always going to be negativity toward anything that is a positive effort toward change. As a heterosexual male, [I am] open and comfortable about loving my fan base, gay or straight, because to me there is no difference, it is my fan base. Your sexual preference does not matter to me and it shouldnāt matter to anybody. I thought [the criticism] was kind of dumb, considering I play this gay character on a gritty show. Thereās a gay sex scene. I kissed a man.”
On sliding in the DMs: ā[I] Slide right in there sometimes. And then youāll text the person and finally meet the person. Itās like online dating. Even that freaks me the fuck out. Iām like, should it be a group? Just the person? Itās scary.ā
