You can officially add two new celebrities to the “celesbian” category: singer Rebecca Black of the viral hit “Friday” and actress Auli’i Cravalho, who voices Disney’s “Moana.”
Rebecca Black opened up about her sexuality during an episode of the “Dating Straight” podcast. She said she most identifies with the word “queer.”
“To me the word ‘queer’ feels really nice,” Black explained. “I’ve dated a lot of different types of people and I just don’t really know what the future holds. Some days I feel little more on the gay side than others.”
She said she “made a conscious decision to not, like, ‘come out'” but is more than happy to discuss her sexuality and dating life. Black added that she’d recently broken up with a woman and is now taking a break from dating.
Black shot to fame for “Friday” back in 2011, when she was just 13 years old. She’s now 22.
Auli’i Cravalho also came out on Thursday, revealing that she identifies as bisexual in a clever TikTok video.
The “Moana” actress lip-synced to the lyrics of Eminem’s song “Those Kinds Nights,” which includes lyrics that are a conversation between a man and a woman. The man asks, “You straight?” and the woman replies, “No, I’m bi.” The man also says, “I’m checkin’ out the chick” and the woman replies, “So am I.” Cravalho only lip-synced the woman’s words, and it was apparently her first TikTok post ever.
The video made it to Twitter, where a fan straight-up asked Cravalho if she likes girls. The Disney star replied, “If I may escort you to my TikTok…”

Cravalho, 19, has also appeared on “Rise,” “Weird City,” and “The Little Mermaid Live.” After she came out, Twitter exploded with excitement from her fans, many of whom are queer themselves.
“AULI’I CRAVALHO IS BI, WLW truly don’t know how to lose,” one fan wrote.
“Auli’i Cravalho is bi and that is ALL that matters to me,” another said.
Congrats to both of these young women! Since it’s officially coming out season, who’s next?!
