The New York-born 20-year-old sent a tweet this week simply confirming that he was coming out as bi. In a later tweet he added: “Who wants a kiss”. The rapper, real name Gustav Ahr, has more than 112,000 followers on Instagram and 82,000 followers on SoundCloud. He said that rap industry is similar to wrestling from that point of view that everybody needs a character. “If you’re not a fun enough character, then no one’s gonna f**k with you because you don’t have enough sh*t that’s different.” he said. His own character is described as post emo or new emo. A number of fans responded celebrating Lil Peep’s announcement. Some also said they would take him up on his offer of a kiss. One wrote: “gimme a kiss papi”, and another added: “I can’t wait to be a power couple”.
