Tyler, The Creator could be coming to a city near you!
Tyler, The Creator laid it all on the line for his new release Flower Boy, which debuted earlier this summer to much acclaim and buzz, namely surrounding the lyrical content of the song "Garden Shed," where a reference to a former male love interest was twisted into a proclamation of his bisexuality by many fans. Though he's never explicitly come out as a result of his lyrics, he has teased the fact that he may have had a boyfriend in years past. During a recent podcast interview, he said something to that effect, but according to comments later posted on Twitter, he meant it as a "figure of speech" in order to try and broaden some minds. Whatever the interpretation is, the point remains that Flower Boy is Tyler at the most mature and artistically sound we've ever seen him. Finally, he's announced a short slate of tour dates in support of the LP.
