This just in: Tyler the Creator dropped his latest single “Okra” yesterday and it’s all about his crush on Timothée Chalamet.
In the third verse of the song, Tyler sings about his affections for the Call Me By Your Name actor.
“Tell Timothée Chalamet to come get at me,” he croons. “Skin glowin’, clear of acne, diamonds see-through, so holographic.”
Naturally, the Twitterverse has gone wild over the reference.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Tyler, who has made no shortage of homophobic comments in the past, has rapped about maybe probably being into menfolk.
On his Grammy-nominated album Flower Boy, Tyler appeared to open up about his sexuality in the songs “Ain’t Got Time” and “Garden Shed.” On “Ain’t Got Time,” he raps, “Next line will have ’em like, ‘Whoa’/I’ve been kissing white boys since 2004.”
And in a 2017 interview with Koopz Tunes, Tyler said he had a boyfriend as a teenager, “Open-minded now? I had a boyfriend when I was 15 in f*cking Hawthorne, n*gga. If that’s not open-minded, then I don’t know what the f*ck that is.” Although he later walked back those comments.
