Jason Mraz Opens Up About His 'Two Spirit' Sexuality: 'I've Had Experiences With Men'
Jason Mraz is opening up about his sexuality.
The “I’m Yours” singer, 41, revealed in an interview with Billboard that his wife of three years, Christina Carano, helped him embrace his sexual identity, which he explored during their relationship.
“I’ve had experiences with men, even while I was dating the woman who became my wife,” he said.
How a Netflix Series Revived the Career of Latin Pop Icon Luis Miguel
Three questions have dominated the summer in Mexico:
Who will be the country’s next president?
How far will the Mexican soccer team advance in the World Cup?
And: ¿Dónde está Marcela, la mamá de Luis Miguel? (Where is Marcela, Luis Miguel’s mom?)
The first two questions have answers. Mexico elected its next president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, on July 1, and hours later the national soccer team was eliminated in the World Cup's second round on July 2.
Question three, however, remains unanswered, and may never be. But thanks to a hit TV show, anticipation for a possible reveal of what happened to Marcela Basteri, the missing mother of pop icon Luis Miguel, has become a pervasive topic of conversation on social media, radio, and news outlets throughout Mexico and much of Latin America.

Fats Domino, Architect Of Rock 'N' Roll, Dead At 89
Fats Domino, one of the architects of rock 'n' roll, died Tuesday at his daughter's suburban New Orleans home. Haydee Ellis, a family friend, confirmed the news to NPR. Mark Bone, chief investigator for the Jefferson Parish coroner's office, tells NPR that Domino, who was 89, died of natural causes.
In the 1940s, Antoine Domino Jr. was working at a mattress factory in New Orleans and playing piano at night. Both his waistline and his fan base were expanding. That's when a bandleader began calling him "Fats." From there, it was a cakewalk to his first million-selling record — "The Fat Man." It was Domino's first release for Imperial Records, which signed him right off the bandstand.
14 LGBTQ Rappers Owning The Game

Sakima's Dirty Pop: Meet Music's New Queer Voice
London artist Sakima was first attracted to a boy when he was 6: “I remember very distinctly a group of girls laughing at me and weirded out that I fancied a guy,” says the electro-R&B musician born Isaac Sakima. Though the feelings weren't reciprocated (“He was straight, as far as I know”), his childhood crush serves as the namesake for the 26-year-old’s Ricky EP (out Oct. 13). Through the seven songs, the singer-producer fetishizes daddies, rejects heteronormative traditions and explores the lexicon of Polari, a coded language used by gay men in Britain in the 1950s and ’60s, when homosexuality was illegal.
Native Engager: Tori Amos Talks Gay Mentors, Gets Political
Tori Amos' mind is one of the greatest wonders of the music world. For over three decades, via an oeuvre as unpredictable as the muses that guide her, that very mind has been a trove of lyrical salvation and a divine mélange of eccentricities, insight, imagination and, as I discovered during our illuminating exchange, even "Mean Girls" references.
Before last year's political turn of events, the piano virtuoso took a summer road trip through North Carolina's Smoky Mountains to reconnect to her familial roots, setting into motion her nature-influenced 15th studio album, "Native Invader." Featuring some of her best music in years, as influenced by these divisive times and a speech-crippling stroke her mother suffered in January, the album's emotional core is resilient and healing despite "a cluster of hostile humans who side with their warlords of hate," as she brazenly sings, calling for us to "rehumanize."
Amos, 54, took me to every remote corner of her meandering mind during our recent interview, name-dropping everyone from Persephone to Regina George and the two gay men who helped transform her into the Tori Amos. But there's more: "the new invasion of the body snatchers," exercising to rap, being postmenopausal in 2017 America, the prospect of a Vegas show with hot male dancers and also Washington D.C., the "underworld" where she launched her career, unknowingly performing for political players who would set the stage for crucial issues Amos and the entire country are now facing.

Marilyn Manson on Getting Inked With Johnny Depp, Beef With Justin Bieber & His Fiery New Album
Marilyn Manson is in physical pain.
This isn’t the admission of vulnerability that one would expect from the self-proclaimed “Antichrist Superstar,” who once boasted about shoving sewing needles underneath his fingernails for personal amusement. But last night, the hard-rock subversive and close friend Johnny Depp got matching back tattoos of the original cover to Charles Baudelaire’s poetry collection The Flowers of Evil -- a skeleton whose arm bones melt into the branches of a tree. Despite his legendary absinthe and narcotics consumption, Manson apparently remains governed by the same nervous system as the rest of us.
“All the scars -- musical, physical, mental, emotional -- they’re what define you,” says Manson. At 48, he has weathered the deaths of both parents, a divorce from burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese and the dissolution of several other high-profile relationships.
The Ultimate A-to-Z Encyclopedia of LGBTQ Musicians and Bands
For even the most seasoned music lovers and sound hounds, discovering LGBTQ musicians can prove daunting.
Only a handful identify as “LGBTQ musicians” themselves, as most identify simply as musicians, preferring not to box themselves into a set sound, lyrical set or target demographic. For the same reason, it’s rare to find a comprehensive listing of LGBTQ musicians on online stores or streaming apps; all artists, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, are typically grouped by genre.
But with a little research and a lot of listening, we’ve created this living encyclopedia of LGBTQ musicians that can be used to discover new queer artists and give music-lovers an even deeper appreciation for those you already loved.
LCD Soundsystem's Gavin Russom Comes Out as Trans Woman
When Gavin Russom DJs at Berlin Nightclub in Chicago next week, it will inevitably be a celebration of coming out, performing her first set as an out transgender woman.
The founding member of LCD Soundsystem, which finished a tour of festivals last year and is out with a new album later this year, shared a new photo of herself today as part of the flyer for Thursday’s Femme’s Room party at Berlin. The party is known for celebrating all identities and forms of femme expression.
GRIZ COMES OUT PUBLICLY AS GAY AND DISCUSSES EARLY STRUGGLES IN TOUCHING OP-ED
Detroit DJ and producer GRiZ has published a new op-ed on Huffington Post publicly announcing for the first time that he identifies as gay.
The telling gives intimate details of his early conflicts coping with his identity as a homosexual teen and how with time he has learned to proudly stand in the spotlight as a member of the LGBT community.
The written commentary is a heartbreaking disclosure charting the DJ's bold attempts to battle his sexuality through hiding, lying and the use of prescription medication.
Cher Sounds Off on Trump's 'Cheating' & Why She's 'Not a Fan' of Her Six Decades of Hits
No one has ever said, “Gee, I wonder what Cher is thinking.” During her six-decade career as a singer and actor, she has earned a reputation for blunt opinions, clothes that reveal more than they conceal and an unchaste flair for expletives. Long before the acronym DGAF was in vogue, Cher had no F’s to give. In one of her most infamous moments, she called David Letterman “an asshole” -- to his face, and on his own TV show.
“They don’t make them like her anymore,” says Pink. “She is the smartest, wittiest, most sharp-shooting rock star ever. And her style was always the most fearless.” Cher has won an Oscar, a Grammy and an Emmy. She has had 22 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, and because of her unmatched longevity, she was the first artist to score a No. 1 single on a Billboard chart in the 1960s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, ’00s and ’10s.
Meet Marshall Bang, Korea's first-ever openly gay K-pop artist
Despite being known around the world for its pop culture and entertainment (amongst other things, of course), Korea is still a very conservative pace. Whether it's race or sexuality, Korea still has a long way to go in terms of being an all-inclusive and accepting society. It's understandable, of course, when you consider how homogenous and traditional the country is. Even in the usually progressive world of entertainment, being openly gay is not considered a smart move, especially for the talent, whose success is measured by how accepted and liked they are by the public. In 2000, Hong Seok Cheon, a television personality and former model, revealed that he was gay on a popular variety show. Initially, the producers edited out the footage from broadcast, but the exchange was leaked, and all hell broke loose. Hong was quickly let go from all of his gigs, lost sponsors, and was forced to deal with unprecedented public backlash.
And 17 years later, a young man from L.A. is prepared to put it all out there as a Kpop star, prepared to become the first openly gay singer in the history of Kpop.
