Vanessa Carlton: "I'm a Proud Bisexual Woman"
"I've never said this before, but I'm a proud bisexual woman," the 29-year-old proclaimed in front of a crowd of more than 18,000 strong at the Nashville Pride festival on Saturday.
According to the Huffington Post, the "Thousand Miles" singer made the first-time announcement at the annual Nashville Pride celebration in Tenneessee, an event which celebrates and recognizes individuals in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community in the Middle Teneessee region.
The singer's "coming out" was greeted by a supportive audience.
Carlton has previously dated singer-songwriter John Mayer and Third Eye Blind frontman Stephan Jenkins.
