The season two lip-sync assassin opened up about the issues she faced while on tour.
“I’ve had a few experiences where I’ve been on tour and I’ve checked into the hotel I’m staying at and brought two of my gay friends over,” she explained.
“Once in Birmingham, we were in a student housing area. I had just finished a show and was going back to my hotel to go haywire. They came for a drink. The people behind the desk looked at the three of us and said ‘no, that’s absolutely not going to happen.’ »
“I’m like ‘why are they my friends? This is my hotel room, I have the right to have whoever I want there’. It just seemed very judgmental, very homophobic, which makes me sad.
“The way they looked at me, they thought maybe we were going to have a gang bang!” Even if I wanted 800 people in my room, that’s nobody’s business but mine.
Thankfully, the star didn’t let the incident ruin her evening.
“But imagine if there’s a gay couple or a lesbian couple or whoever they choose to come to the hotel and they try to check in and they feel nervous asking for a double bed,” he said. she declared.
“It could be two guys or two girls asking for a double bed and feeling scared, ashamed or insecure. It saddens me because you shouldn’t be ashamed at all of being who you are and doing what you do – wanting to enjoy a night in a hotel like everyone else.
