I’m not sure why this needed explaining, but Raven-Symoné is not getting married in the immediate future. Though her tweet expressed happiness over the ability to eventually get married one day, a bunch of us gays have conveyed similar sentiments on Twitter. Why did y’all think it was any different for her young ass?
But, for those confused, a rep did reach out to E! News to confirm that Raven-Symoné won’t be getting hitched in like…a week, writing in a statement: “Raven is not getting married. She was just supporting the fact that she heard on NPR that more states legalized gay marriage today.”
And Raven herself told E!: “I am very happy that gay marriage is opening up around the country and is being accepted. I was excited to hear today that more states legalized gay marriage. I, however am not currently getting married, but it is great to know I can now, should I wish to.”
I’m quite proud of her for opening this aspect of her life to the public. She owed no one an explanation about her sexual preference, but I can only imagine how many people are now inspired that “Olivia” is sliding up and down the rainbow.
Feel free to tag yourself in, Queen Latifah. Or you know, not. Whatever you choose, Cleo. Love you, boo.
