The star continued: "This doesn't bring me shame, just a weight and burden I have held onto for a long time that I would like lifted off of me. I grew up in this entertainment industry at a very young age and when I was around 13-years-old I started to find boys and girls attractive. There were years that went by that I thought about it, but it wasn't until I was 17-years-old, after a few relationships with girls, I had an experience with a male that I had an attraction to who I also worked with and grew up with."

He concluded: "To me music has always been my temple. Music will ALWAYS be what transcends all of us and myself. The studio has always been my safe haven. But the ultimate goal for me is to be satisfied. I never want to be a figure of disappointment." The singer was recently arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, and fans questioned his gaunt appearance in the mugshot, leading him to speak about his struggle with stress, and how it makes him lose weight. "I am not a meth head (methamphetamine abuser)," he told Entertainment Tonight. "I have never touched it (drug) in my life. I have a stress condition of an 80-year-old man. I am also lactose intolerant."
