Rayvon Owen kisses a hot guy in this brand new music video for his song “Can’t Fight It”!
The 24-year-old American Idol alum was originally supposed to hook up with a girl in the video, but decided to come out instead.
“When I read that treatment, I knew I couldn’t be dishonest,” Rayvon told Billboard. “Not that I ever lied to people in the past, but the truth had been omitted. I felt like I was doing a disservice because I’ve always been an honest, loving person.”
As for why he didn’t come out during Idol, Rayvon said, “I was afraid. Here’s a show that reaches so many people, including a lot of small town, conservative people, who grew up in the same environment I grew up in. I was afraid that if I shared this part of my life, would people vote for me? It’s sad that I had to think that. I never said I dated a girl or I’m straight, but I never said I was gay, either. I just let people think what they think. Not just publicly but with the contestants, with the producers, with everybody. I decided to keep that to myself. Do I regret that decision? You can’t go back and change it. You just learn from it.”
