Here's How Hollywood Celebrated LGBTQ Pride

Tyler, The Creator's new album "Scum F-ck Flower Boy" has ignited more speculation that he's gay, and Twitter is going wild.

In one song in particular, "Garden Shed," Tyler raps about hiding in a garden shed, which many listeners are saying could be representative of Tyler being "in the closet."

"All my friends lost / They couldn't read the signs / I didn't wanna talk and tell 'em my location / And they ain't wanna walk / Truth is, since a youth kid, thought it was a phase / Thought it'd be like the Frank; poof, gone / But, it's still goin' on."

In another verse, Tyler raps, "Garden shed for the garcons / Them feelings I was guarding," which has also raised some questions. The word "garçons" translates to "boys" in French.

British R&B singer Estelle, who's been a vocal LGBTQ rights supporter in the past, sings the "Garden Shed" chorus: "Don't kill the rose / Boy, it could move / Love every flower / Out the cocoon."

And in his song "I Ain't Got Time," Tyler raps about "kissing white boys since 2004."

If he is indeed trying to come out publicly, this isn't the rapper's first try.

In 2015, the rapper tweeted, "I TRIED TO COME OUT THE DAMN CLOSET LIKE FOUR DAYS AGO AND NO ONE CARED HAHAHHAHAHA," but no one seemed to think he was serious, especially since he used the word "f--got" 213 times on his 2011 debut album.

Take a look at Twitter's mixed -- but mostly supportive -- reactions below.
