Troye Sivan asked if he’s a ‘top or bottom’ in exceptionally awkward interview

This shouldn’t really come as news to anyone, but asking a gay celebrity if he likes to top or bottom is best to be avoided.

Unfortunately, the New Zealand LGBTQ magazine Express didn’t get that memo during a sitdown with pop singer Troye Sivan.

Sivan, 24, called the question “wildly invasive”, and the general consensus has been yes, it sure is.

More specifically, the interviewer asked Troye if his boyfriend, model Jacob Bixenman, would give him a “hall pass” to bed Shawn Mendes (strange territory already), and if Sivan was a top or bottom.

“Ooo… definitely passing,” Sivan responded. Later he addressed the awkward moment on Twitter:

“I thought about asking the interviewer about his absolute fave sex position after that last question, but then i remembered how wildly invasive, strange and innapropriate that would be”, he commented.

“Didn’t stop him though!”
