Troye Sivan opens up about the lyrics to “Bloom”.
Yesterday, openly gay heartthrob and international pop superstar Troye Sivan joined the Australian news program The Project. During the interview, Sivan explained the meaning behind the lyrics to some of his songs on his upcoming album, Bloom.
While his single “Bloom” has been applauded as a bop about bottoming, Sivan has been reluctant to confirm the song’s sexual undertones.
Earlier this year, Dazed asked if the song bloom was about having anal coitus for the first time. Sivan replied with a wink, “It’s 100 percent about flowers! That’s all it is.”
But, it seems Sivan has changed his tune. On The Project, he confirmed that “it’s about sex.”
Following the revelation, the hosts playfully teased Sivan, which obviously embarrassed him. Sivan jokingly replied, “Suddenly I regret all of this. I regret putting out the album. I wish I never did it!” In addition to addressing lyrical rumors around “Bloom”, Sivan also touched on the moment in “Dance to This” when Ariana Grande sings “Do that thing we never do sober, sober.”
“When I was talking to Ariana about which part she was gonna sing, I was like, ‘You can change any lyrics or whatever,’” Sivan told the hosts. “And when I got back her singing that lyric, I literally cracked up laughing.”
