Owen kisses a man in "Can't Fight It," his latest video

American Idol alum Rayvon Owen opens up about his sexuality in his latest video, 'Can't Fight It."

In an exclusive interview to Billboard, Owen talks about what prompted him to come out as gay. The video director's idea for the last scene was to depict Owen leaving a nightclub with a beautiful girl. But the singer didn't see things the same way:

"When I read that treatment, I knew I couldn't be dishonest," Owen tells 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."

The ending was changed -- now, in the video's closing scene, Owen kisses a man.
