Giving props to Ellen, Anderson Cooper (“he’s everything”) and RuPaul, the NYU junior talks about the aftermath of his public “outing” — basically, haters gon’ hate — as well as coming into his own and coming out to his parents.
“I told her how I was feeling and she obviously told me that she had known and always would love me anyway. The same thing happened with my dad like a year or so later,” he said. “Everyone has to get used to it. No parent is prepared 100 percent and fully for something like that. We all had to work and move forward.”
EJ also clarifies that when TMZ ambushed him, he was hanging out on the Sunset Strip not with his boyfriend but rather his best friend — they just like holding hands sometimes, you guys!
