I've been looking forward to doing an album, but it's really sad to see how many doors have been closed because of the gay thing. I thought it was about the music.
I had said to some pastor that I was having thoughts, and the church turned on me. They went to my mom and said, So sorry about your son.
When Queer Eye hit, the church told my mom they were praying for me. She said, God loves him too. And I support him 100 percent.
