The artist explained how they casually mentioned their sexuality in an Instagram Live earlier in the month where fans kept asking:

“‘Kehlani what’s new?’ and I’m like ‘I finally know I’m a lesbian.’ Well, it’s f**king true. I am gay gay gay gay gay.”

In the clip, the Can I hitmaker then open up about having a heart-to-heart with family and friends to tell them about their self-discovery. However, their reactions weren’t exactly what the R&B star expected:

“I’m like, ‘Guys, I finally know that I’m gay — like, I’m gay gay,’ and they’re like, ‘We know. Duh, stupid. Duh. I feel like, ‘No. I want you to fall on the floor and be like, ‘Congratulations! We had no idea! Everyone’s just like, ‘Duh. You’re the only one who didn’t f**king know. The f**king closet was glass.’”

Kehlani concluded the video, telling their audience how no one had been surprised.

“So I guess I just wanted y’all to know that everyone knew but me.”

As you may know, the California native has been open about identifying as queer in the past. In a recent interview with The Advocate, Kehlani revealed about how they plan to raise their 2-year-old daughter, Adeya Nomi, “in a progressive, loving environment surrounded by family, where identity won’t ever be an issue.” The songwriter added:

“All my friends, all her aunties, uncles, her godparents, everybody is just loudly queer. Our generation already kind of broke the mold of getting to that point, so I don’t even think our kids are going to think about it as something that they have to identify and differentiate. I feel it should be normal.”

Even more so, they feel that as more LGBTQIA+ stories enter into the mainstream media, queer relationships won’t feel so “different,” explaining:

“We’ll be reading queer stories, queer books where the baby has two dads, two moms, two parents who don’t identify as either. Movies that have that. She sees healthy queer couples. So, I don’t think that she’s going to even think about it as ‘This is different from normal.’”

Congrats Kehlani for being able to live your authentic life! We are so happy!
