Check Out The Music Video For Troye Sivan's #BopBoutBottoming "Bloom"

"Bloom" now has a music video!

Last month, we shared with you the fact that fans think Troye Sivan’s latest single is about bottoming. Now, we're happy to share with you the music video for that song.

But if you don't know the situation, we'll catch you up first.

The openly gay singer shared on Twitter the true meaning of the song after it had been released. In a new deleted tweet, Sivan simply shared the phrase #BopsBoutBottoming.

Later, Sivan tried to deny that the song was about sex. In an interview with Dazed Digital, he feigned offense while saying, “It’s 100 percent about flowers! That’s all it is.

Despite possibly going back on the idea that this is anthem for Bottoms everywhere, we fans of the song know what’s up. After all, just look at the lyrics.

“It’s true, babe… I’ve been saving this for you… Promise me you’ll hold my hand if I get scared now… Might tell you to take a second baby slow it down… You should know I bloom, I bloom just for you.” 

And while you’re at it, you might as well look at the new music video, directed by Bardia Zeinali, for the song (before, the song had a 3D lyric video).

Don’t forget that Troye Sivan is getting ready for the release of his new album and musical tour around the United States.

The Bloom Tour is set to appear extensively around the United States in towns and cities like Philadlephia, Boston, Charlotte, Milwaukee, Austin, Chicago, Denver, and much more.

Also, the new album, titled Bloom, will release sometime later this year.

Troye Sivan Reveals New Album Release Date, Cover Art After Taylor Swift Concert

 Following a surprise performance with Taylor Swift at her Reputation Tour’s Rose Bowl stop on Saturday night, Troye Sivan revealed the title, release date and cover art of his forthcoming album, the follow-up to his breakout 2015 hit Blue Neighborhood.

The South African-born crooner’s latest is titled Bloom (it’s also the title of the album’s third single—an anthem about bottoming), and it will be released Aug. 31. The cover art is a clean, elegant black & white headshot by French photographer Hedi Slimane.

On Saturday, Sivan, 22 and Swift, 28 surprised an audience of 60,000 with a performance of the former’s single “My, My, My.” Sivan sported tour Reputation Tour merchandise.

Last week, Sivan told The New York Times that Bloom is an "album of tells, flamboyantly, defiantly expressed."

Sivan will make his big screen acting debut later this year in Joel Edgerton’s coming-out and coming-of-age drama Boy, Erased opposite Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe and Lucas Hedges.

Fans Think Troye Sivan's New Song is About Bottoming

Openly gay pop singer Troye Sivan dropped the video for his latest single called "Bloom."  The almost four minute clip is done totally in 3D by artist Jason Ebeyer, and currently sits number four on the website's trending page. 

The song title isn't exactly about a flower here. People are thinking that it's more about... bottoming.  The lyrics that coincide "Bloom" sort of support that cause, even though Troye playfully denied that it was in an interview with Dazed Digital where he said "It’s 100 per cent about flowers! That’s all it is.'

 “It’s true, babe… I’ve been saving this for you… Promise me you’ll hold my hand if I get scared now… Might tell you to take a second baby slow it down… You should know I bloom, I bloom just for you.” Those are just some of the lyrics from the song.  The way Troye sings it implies that he is the one bottoming for the first time. 

The song even kicks off with "Take a trip into my garden, I've got so much to show ya, The fountains and the waters, Are begging just to know ya."  So Troye, you really aren't fooling anyone here.

It's the third single he's released after "My My My!" and "The Good Side" from his forthcoming sophomore album.  His debut, Blue Neighbourhood, was a major hit and was certified gold in several different countries including his home country of Australia and the United States.

Do you think "Bloom" is about bottoming? Take a look at the video below.

Troye Sivan Opens Up About The Time He Realized He Was Gay

Gay Pop singer Troye Sivan is opening up about the time when he came to realize his sexuality.

In an interview with Attitude Magazine, Sivan shared that his sexual awakening was thanks to Zac Efron.

“I remember I cried when I realized that I thought Zac Efron was really hot, [when I was] aged 13 or something like that,” Sivan says. “I cried. And felt really sick… It wasn’t just: ‘This is a little crush on a boy or something like that: I’m not just interested in this boy–I think that’s he hot.’ And that was weird for me.”

The singer also talked about dating as a gay teenager.

"All my friends were hooking-up with random people at parties, and I just felt so left behind because I didn’t know gay people, I didn’t know where to meet gay people," Sivan says. "I didn’t really want to venture out by myself and so I just did stuff that a 17-year-old boy shouldn’t really have to do.”

Sivan went further to explain that he eventually figured out that he could fake his age on Grindr and meet guys through there.

“I managed to get a fake ID and then I got Grindr on my phone and started to try to meet people who were like me, but you sort of are forced a little bit into these hyper-sexualised environments, and even though that’s awesome when you’re 17… I didn’t know what else to do."

Perhaps, that’s around the time that he met the worst Grindr date of his life. Sivan shared in an earlier interview with PopCrush that he was hanging out with a guy he’d met on Gridnr when the guy suddenly pulled out his phone to look for someone else.

“It was a while ago, back in a time when it was a little bit less accepted and a little bit more scary,” Sivan told PopCrush. “I was like, ‘Okay. I think I'm just gonna go home.’”

Thankfully, all that’s behind him as Sivan’s found a wonderful boyfriend in model Jacob Bixenman.

“He’s got like a kind of energy about him, a magnetic sort of energy. I think people can’t help but love him. He’s just got one of those personalities that draws people in… It’s kind of like having your best friend around all the time, which is really nice.”

Congrats to the happy couple.

Troye Sivan Opens Up On Being A Gay Musician, Looks Darn Fine In The Process!

 

Troye Sivan is the stunningly gorgeous and insanely talented openly sexy singer that we always knew we needed, and now the groundbreaking and barrier-smashing twenty-two-year-old is opening up about what it really means to be a gay musician in 2018. This new cover shoot for GQ Australia perfectly showcases Sivan's striking features, but it's the accompanying interview that really sheds light on what makes Sivan so important for the gay community.

While often being gay is portrayed as a disadvantage, Sivan paints same-sensuality as a positive for his career, stating that as a groundbreaker, there's... a lot of ground to be broken. Sort of. I think. You know what I mean:

The thing about being an openly gay artist that I’m finding is that you can sort of do anything, and chances are, it hasn’t been done that many times before.

 

 

The statement is in reference to the song My My My! which Sivan wrote for his cute AF boyfriend Jacob Bixenman (who you can check out HERE):

The song is about lust more than it is about love – it’s about that instant attraction. That is fairly normal subject matter for a pop song, but I guess people feel like it’s something new because it’s a same-sex thing.

 

 

Of course it wouldn't be an A-list interview without GQ at least attempting to elicit a juicy scoop on a celeb feud, but when asked about his alleged beef with Taylor Swift, Sivan only had this to say:

A lot of the bad press doesn’t make sense to me. Taylor Swift has always been really lovely to me – super-kind and generous. We have hung out only a couple of times, but she’s just been so open and forthcoming and answered all my questions, because I’m always really interested in what it’s like to be Taylor Swift.

Don't worry, we can read between the lines. She's the worst. JK. Finally, Sivan talks about his exciting collaboration with the one and only side to side walking starlet, Ariana Grande:

She’s a really good friend. I wasn’t sure there were going to be any features on the album because it felt so personal. But I had this one song and I thought this song really needs Ariana Grande on it. I hate asking people for things, but I plucked up the courage to ask – and I had it like two days later.

And we're glad you did! Do you want Sivan to be your Boy Troye, or are you Sivan' yourself for someone else? Let us know!

 

Twitter Went Crazy After Kpop Boyband BTS Shared Love For "Love, Simon" & Troye Sivan

A Kpop star shared his love of a song from Love, Simon and the internet was better for it.

Korean boyband BTS (or Bangtan Boys) had a fantastic 2017. The group gained international success and performed on American talk shows, awards ceremonies like the American Music Awards, and even the “New Year’s Rocking Eve 2018” program. All of that hype and excitement earned the group the title of the most tweeted celebrity in 2017, and it looks like that title is holding strong.

BTS’s leader and main rapper RM (born Kim Namjoon) tweeted out a song recommendation on Monday (April 15).

RM shared a screenshot of Troye Sivan’s “Strawberries and Cigarettes” from the soundtrack to Love, Simon. While RM’s“It’s great” caption was simple and short, his fans soon swarmed the tweet with joy and excitement.

As GayStarNews reports, the tweet has earned a large response. At the time of this article’s posting, the tweet has about 493,000 likes, 181.9 thousand retweets, and 211,000 comments.

On top of that, a collaboration between BTS and Troye Sivan might be one step closer to happening.

BTS has already collaborated with Desiigner, Steve Aoki, and Fall Out Boy, so why not Sivan? Plus, Sivan has already expressed interest in creating a song with the boyband. Earlier this year, he said, “That would be so fun.”

“I fell way down watching all their music videos,’ he said. ‘They’ve been so nice to me since day one, so I just want to meet them and say thank you. It’s a world I’ve yet to fully delve into and understand, so I’m just completely curious about the whole thing.”

With Sivan showing interest in a collaboration and now RM showing interest in Sivan’s music, we just need their record companies to connect the dots. Our fingers are crossed.

Troye Sivan Recited The Lyrics To Call My By Your Name's "Mystery of Love" In A Poetry Performance

Singer, and soon to be actor, Troye Sivan spoke the lyrics to Sufjan Stevens’ “Mystery of Love” as a poetry reading.

Troye Sivan is not afraid to profess his love of Call Me By Your Name. The South African-born and Australian-raised singer participated in Dazed’s Texts series by performing the spoken-word piece.

Part of Sivan’s love for the film is probably because he emphasized with the character Elio so much. As he told PopCrush recently:

“I think that it 100 percent was made for Timothée Chalamet, but I would have at least auditioned,” he said of the coveted role. “I really feel like that was the first time, pretty much ever, that I’ve looked at a character and been like, ’I 100 percent relate to that person.’ Like every single thing, even down to his body type and the way that he looks. It’s so strange. I look at his body and I’m like, ’That’s my body.’ Like skinny, small little nipples, pale. Like everything down to the nipples, it’s me.”

While Sivan didn’t get the chance to take on the role of Elio, he is starting down the road of a professional actor.

As we shared last year, Sivan is acting in a film focusing on gay conversion therapy called, Boy Erased. Sivan will be joined by other actors such as Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, and Lucas Hedges.

But back to the poetry performance. If you want to check it out, you can watch the video down below.

Miss Big and Milky is at it again!

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 personality, Milk, just added another item to her long resume. The drag queen stars in the ‘girl’ version of pop star Troye Sivan’s new single ‘My My My. Based on Milk’s track record on All Stars 3, maybe it should have been called ‘Me Me Me’? Okay, let’s be nice.

The video is directed by Jake Wilson and depicts Milk dancing in various industrial and urban settings. At first it’s hard to get past the terrible strobe light effect used just like in the original, then it subsides, but then comes back again. The video does mention “WARNING: This video may potentially contain seizure triggers for those with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised.” You’ve been warned. Still being nice.

All that aside, Miss Big and Milky shows off some her signature moves:

Still Milk is serving the fashions and her face is beat for the mother f*ckin' gods! Yes, Ma'am!

But what does Troye Sivan think about the drag queen’s performance? Well, he’s getting his LIFE:

Good job, Miss Milk!
