Troye Sivan has gotten deep in a reflective teaser video for his new song “Heaven.”
In the video, the Perth YouTuber-turned-pop-prince opines: “The hardest person for me to come out to was myself. (He now has over 3.7 million YouTube subscribers)
“When I first started to realise that I might be gay I had to ask myself all of these questions, these really terrifying questions. Am I ever gonna find someone? Am I ever gonna be able to have a family?
“If there is a god, does that god hate me? Those were really, really scary questions for a 14-year-old.
“Then throughout the process, I kind of started to build this self-confidence and this self-worth, and I realised, yeah, I’m gay. Eventually, I got to the point where I was like, ‘If there is a heaven, but I can’t be myself up there, then maybe I don’t want heaven.'”
“Heaven” is taken from Troye’s debut album Blue Neighbourhood, out December 4, and the track features fellow Aussie artist Betty Who.
“So honoured and excited to be a part of Troye Sivan’s debut album. Can’t wait for you guys to hear the track we did together!” Betty recently wrote on Facebook alongside a cute selfie she took with Troye.
