World news – Brothers Osbourne’s TJ comes out gay


« I feel very good when I’m gay, » 36-year-old Osbourne told Time. « I’m being protected because I don’t want to talk about something that I personally have no problem with. That feels so strange. »

Osbourne told the magazine that he was in Nashville with friends and family for years – he joined bandmates and Brother John in his twenties – but his appearance reportedly makes him the only openly gay country artist signed to a major record label. (The magazine makes a stylistic distinction between the mainstream sound of the Brothers Osbourne and other queer artists like Lil Nas X, Brandi Carlile and Orville Peck.) « People will ask, » Why does it even need to be talked about? « And I personally agree, » explained Osbourne. “But if I showed up at an awards show with a man, it would be amazing for people. It wouldn’t be like, “Oh, cool!”

Osbourne also admits to being “curious” about how the country’s audience will react to the reveal: “I don’t think I’ll be run off the stage in Chicago « , he said. « But in a rural town that has a fair? »

An early predictor of this could be the reaction to the brothers’ video for their hit « Stay a Little Longer », which featured gay and interracial couples. « There were people who said, ‘F-t lovers! « Said Osbourne. Staying locked in Nashville also added to his relationships, » Saying, « Hey, don’t hold my hand. Someone I know is in here. So can you wait in the car? » « I want to reach the peak of my career, to be who I am, » he told Time. « I mean, I am who I am, but I muted part of me and it choked me. »
