While on a promotional visit recently at Power 105.1 Breakfast Club Morning Show, Miguel discussed his music, the alleged beef between him and Lloyd and those persistent ‘gay’ rumors.
He also talked about why he thought Frank Ocean’s decision to ‘come out’ was a marketing ploy. Check it out!
Miguel’s views about new album…
I think this album is multipurpose. My first album was so romance-based and this album is more about like, vibe. I really really hope this album is played at like, photo shoots and inspires people to be creative and do some crazy sh-t in the bedroom like you wouldn’t try. [Whether it’s] role playing…[You do role playing Miguel?] Yeah! There’s a song called vixen on my album. If you got that, that explains exactly the role playing. It could be the president and Jackie O. I’ve definitely done that, for sure.
Miguel on the gay rumors…
You guys know this because you’re on air, people make a lot of assumptions about you. Not necessarily about your sexuality but about whatever. I think at first, kind of getting acclimated to the fact that people are watching and everything you do is scrutinized, I had to take a step back. I think now, when I look at everything, I know that first and foremost [it is about] the music, and I don’t want to do anything that detracts from the authenticity of who I am as an artist. People are going to say what they’re gonna say. You can’t really try to please other people, but as long as what you’re doing is real, then they have to respect that.
Miguel on Frank Ocean’s sexuality…
It’s interesting the timing of when it was announced. It could have been a marketing ploy, who’s to say. At the end of the day as a grown a– man I don’t really care what the sexuality of the next man is.
