Troye wonders 'if I'd be more commercially successful if I wasn’t gay'

‘We don’t have a queer Taylor Swift’

On it, Troye says: ‘I have a great management team and great label, and I haven’t had this conversation with anyone else in fear because I hate it, hate it, hate it when pop stars sound bitter, or blame any sort of lack of success on anything other than for themselves. I don’t want to come across like I’m saying that at all, but this just feels like a safe space where we can have an open conversation.’

He furthermore continued: ‘Part of me wonders sometimes if I would be more commercially successful if I wasn’t gay or not as “in your face gay”. I think we’re in a really interesting time in music right now where we are seeing more and more queer artists pop up, but we don’t have a queer Taylor Swift, we don’t have a queer Rihanna, or a queer Beyoncé.

‘It’s not there yet I don’t think, though it feels very exciting to be where we are, I still feel like there’s a really tall mountain to climb. Sometimes it can be frustrating because I’m giving my all and not having some humongous radio smash all over the world.’

‘Is the world actually ready?’

He also added: ‘100% could just be on the music, maybe the music just isn’t good enough, maybe the world is obsessed with hip hop right now and I’m making the furthest thing from hip hop. It could be a myriad other things, but a part of me wonders sometimes, is the world actually ready right now for what I’m trying to be?’

kinda tired of the complaints of all the new singers that can't hit the mainstream.

It's not because he's gay, it's because his songs are not so radio friendly and if he did 70% of what Gaga did to gain this huge success at the the start of her beginning, he would have a commercial success..

I'm not serious 99% of the times ;)

Well Elotn John and Sam Smith (to name a few) were successful at some point in their career, and both were openly gay.

No shade, but I actually think that him being gay made him more famous.

He's just boring. If he was straight, he'd be a boring, straight artist and still as unsuccessful.

Sam Smith is openly gay and he didn't seem to have a problem being commercially successful.

 

Bling not the music after all.

Neither were  open right off the bat, they waited until they had built up success before coming out fully

Bryoncé, Lorde, Rihanna, Arianna, SZA, and the list goes on

But they are not in your face gay. Unlike Troye. Look at his music videos. Bloom for example.

He has some nice songs like Bloom and Dance To This but he doesn't have any bangers so that's why he didn't have a smash hit yet.
