By Whitney Vasquez

Rebecca Black is getting real by opening up about her sexuality for the first time, revealing she identifies herself as queer. In a recent interview, the "Friday" singer told "Dating Straight" podcast hosts Jack Dodge and Amy Ordma that she recently went through a breakup with a female. "I was dating someone and I know they might watch this... but one of the reasons that we went through this breakup was because I was really needed alone time, not from them, but just in general," she said on the podcast.

Her Recent Breakup:


She continued by stating she's emotionally okay, but admitting that "every day really is different." In regards to her sexuality, the 22-year-old revealed it's taken her a while to label herself. "I made a conscious decision to not like 'come out' but to just like, I don't know, people started asking and I stopped responding. I'm still in the process it feels like," the singer added. While she's now not shy about using the word "queer," she explained, "Every day is different, it's something that over the past few years I've obviously been having a lot of conversations with myself about... and with you guys, my friends and my family."

She's Not Sure What The Future Holds:


Rebecca Black has slowly become comfortable with the label. "To me, the word 'queer' feels really nice," she said. "I have dated a lot of different types of people, and I just don't really know what the future holds. Some days, I feel a little more on the 'gay' side than others." While Rebecca Black's currently single, she's not looking for a significant other at the moment. "I don't really want to date right now but even if I did, I have no choice," the singer added. "Unless I wanted to... Skype date people."

Why 'Friday' Almost Ruined Her Life:


The young singer also said that despite their breakup, she and her ex are still trying to be there for one another. "It's a weird time to go through a break up [sic] 'cause you're not going out and meeting new people at all," Rebecca Black told the podcast hosts, referencing the recent world events. The star skyrocketed to fame when her 2011 single "Friday" became a viral sensation on YouTube. While some labeled it "the worst song ever," others instantly fell in love. Rebecca Black recently discussed the emotional toll the song took on her teenage years, revealing it almost ruined her life nearly a decade ago.
