'Friday' singer Rebecca Black had spoken about the sexuality spectrum in the past but had never revealed her explicit identity. In an interview, the star that made headlines with her first single revealed she was queer and fans took to Twitter to confess their crushes and rally behind the singer's recent artistry.

"Currently have a crush on rebecca black & i'm okay with this," tweeted a fan.

On an episode of 'Dating Straight', a podcast, Black, 22, revealed to co-hosts Jack Dodge and Amy Ordman about her heartbreaking split with a woman, in turn publicly coming out as queer. "I made a conscious decision to not, like, 'come out.' People started asking and I stopped not responding. I'm still in the process, it feels like," she said. Following her breakup, Black also mentioned that dating isn't on her radar, at least not any time soon, "I don't really want to date right now, but even if I did, I have no choice. Unless I want to get on Raya and Skype date them? No," Black said.

"Rebecca black came out as queer oh god rebecca black if you're reading this pls go on a picnic with me after quarantine thank you," tweeted a fan.

"Friday is officially a queer anthem lol," tweeted another fan.

The singer said that she feels more at home identifying as queer when she was asked how she identifies, "Every day is different, it's something that over the past few years I've obviously been having a lot of conversations with myself about. To me, the word 'queer' feels really nice. I have dated a lot of different types of people, and I just don't really know what the future holds. Some days, I feel a little more on the 'gay' side than others," revealed the beauty.

In a YouTube video earlier this year, she had responded to a question about whether she is part of the LGBTQ community, vaguely hinting at her own sexuality. "One of the things that I love so much about the LGBTQ community is that they embrace inclusiveness. I definitely see sexuality as being on a spectrum," she said. "You can definitely be on one end of the spectrum or the other. With there being a spectrum, there is this huge middle ground. I definitely see myself as being on that spectrum."

For now, though the singer is trying to cope with a little heartbreak as she spoke a little about her recent breakup saying, “I was dating someone and I know they might watch this. But one of the reasons that we went through this break-up was because I was really needed alone time, not from them, but just in general. But I’m doing okay… every day really is different.”

"Okay, hear me out. Rebecca Black's "Friday" is the anthem we all need right now in this pandemic. Because no one can ever remember what fucking day it is anymore, and she spells it all out for us. She was AHEAD OF HER TIME. Also welcome to the fam.  @MsRebeccaBlack [rainbow flag emoji]," tweeted a supportive fan.
