Conan Gray, an American YouTuber, and vlogger released a new sorrow song titled ‘Astronomy’ on May 7th, 2021, along with a promise to release more music this year.
Gray continues, “My new song is about gradually falling out of love.”
Conan Gray Recalls His Firsts
The self-described “shy boy” discusses his earliest experiences, including attending his first concert and performing his first show, in a new interview with NME.
In the video, the 22-year-old artist recounts all of his vivid recollections while expressing gratitude for where he is now. He also explains the minutiae of his life, such as the first t-shirt or CD he ever bought for himself, as well as his artistic beginnings.
When asked who was the first artist he fell in love with, Gray responds without hesitation with Adele. We can clearly see where the musician obtains his ideas for somber songs.
Conan Reminisces About His Crush for ‘Heather’
Conan shot to fame following the release of his single, ‘Heather,’ featuring Dilon Mathew. Conan also directed the music video. The song expresses his feelings about his high school crush and his crush’s desire for another lady named ‘Heather.’
He reveals in the song how terrible it was for him when his crush’s attention was diverted to Heather.
Despite the fact that Heather stood in the way of his love, he admires her, describing her as a compassionate and beautiful person on the inside. Heather is also described in the song’s lyrics as a sight for sore eyes and fascinating beauty. And Conan comprehends why his crush was drawn to her rather than him.
He stated in a press statement;
“The slow transformation throughout the video was made to represent the feminine and masculine traits. I constantly switched between in order to become who I knew my crush would like. Somebody soft and sweet. Somebody like Heather.”
Is Conan Gray a homosexual?
The YouTube sensation is a frequent user of Twitter. Additionally, he has freely discussed his sexuality in some of his posts. Conan started in August 2018 that he is not gay. However, he frequently discusses the pride community, and his writings indicate that he is or maybe bisexual.
Additionally, he refers to his friend Ashley as his boyfriend, implying that he is homosexual or bisexual. However, neither of them has confirmed whether they are dating or not.
Nonetheless, Conan kept everyone guessing about his relationship status on 2 December 2019 when he shared a photo of him and Matty Healy kissing.
