Throughout her career, Reneé Rapp has made it a point to be as open about her sexuality as possible. But in a recent social media post, the “Not My Fault” singer told her fans that enough is enough.

After Rapp started referring to herself as a lesbian in multiple public appearances over the last few months, discourse began among the singer’s fans, with some openly asking if the star still identified as bisexual. Rapp put an end to the speculation on Monday (March 25) in a post on X: “if I say I’m a lesbian I am a lesbian and if someone says they’re bi they are bi,” she wrote. “I’ve had enough of you witches.”

Over the last few years, Rapp has spoken about identifying as bisexual, even writing about her experience as a bisexual woman on the song “Pretty Girls” from her critically acclaimed debut album Snow Angel. But during her appearance as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live in January, Rapp performed as herself in a sketch about celebrity lip-reading where her fellow cast members referred to her as “little lesbian intern Reneé.”

Since then, Rapp started speaking about owning her identity as a lesbian. In a recent cover story for The Hollywood Reporter, Rapp said she was still navigating the new label that she placed on her sexuality. “I’ve only recently started referring to myself as a lesbian, and I’ve only recently been in a relationship where I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m a lesbian for sure,'” she said. “I’m watching all these movies and parts of gay culture, specifically lesbian culture, and I’m like, ‘I love this.'”

Fans were quick to share messages of support for the singer on social media, reminding other users that how Rapp identifies her sexuality is her business, not theirs. “no cuz i’m glad she’s spoken up about it cuz literally who are u to tell her anything about herself,” one user wrote. Another added that “y’all forget sexualities can change they’re just labels.”

Rapp recently made headlines after winning the 2024 GLAAD Media Award for outstanding musical artist. Taking to the stage at the March 14 ceremony to accept her award, Rapp used her speech to call for an “immediate and permanent” ceasefire in Gaza, while encouraging viewers to “continue to advocate for yourselves, continue to advocate for your friends, your queer friends and for those who can’t advocate for themselves.”
