Yesterday, gay heartthrob Troye Sivan joined the Australian news program The Project to elaborate on some of his lyrics from his upcoming album Bloom, set to be released on August 31.
While the song "Bloom" has been hailed an anthem for bottoms, Troye has been coy about confirming the sexual undertones of the lyrics.
When Dazed asked point-blank if the song was about losing one’s anal virginity, Sivan said with a wink, "It’s 100 percent about flowers! That’s all it is."
However, while on with The Project, the singer said unequivocally, “It’s about sex.”
When the hosts began to playfully tease Sivan, the singer said, “Suddenly I regret all of this. I regret putting out the album. I wish I never did it!”
Sivan also touched on the lyrics of “Dance to This” when Ariana Grande sings “Do that thing we never do sober, sober.”
“When I was talking to Ariana about which part she was gonna sing, I was like, ‘You can change any lyrics or whatever,’” Sivan said. “And when I got back her singing that lyric, I literally cracked up laughing.”
