American singer-songwriter Claire Elizabeth Cottrill, better known by her stage name Clairo, was born on August 18, 1998. She was reared in Carlisle, Massachusetts, and was born in Atlanta, Georgia. At the age of 13, she started sharing songs online.
After the music video for her low-fi single “Pretty Girl” went viral, Clairo gained notoriety. She later inked a record deal and worked with Fader Label to release her debut EP, Diary 001. The critically acclaimed singles “Bags” and “Sofia” from her first studio album Immunity (2019) became her first to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. Sling, Cottrill’s second studio album, was released that year. The album was a financial and critical triumph upon release, debuting in the top 20 on the US Billboard 200.
Is Clairo a Lesbian?
The actress said she feels at ease discussing her sexuality in a recent interview with Out, but she hasn’t decided on a label or even whether she wants one. “I’m still not really sure what my sexuality is, but I do know that it’s not straight,” she said.
At the age of 17, Cottrill received a diagnosis of juvenile idiopathic arthritis. In May 2018, Cottrill revealed to her followers on Twitter that she was bisexual. She stated in an interview that having friends in college, who was openly lesbian, pushed her to come out because of “their confidence and their willingness to be exposed.” She wrote an open letter to Liz Truss, the UK’s then-minister of equalities, in July 2020, urging the government to outlaw all types of LGBT+ conversion therapy.
Her Dating History Revealed
Clairo struggled to fit in while growing up. She would frequently switch between crowds, attempting to make friends, but she always felt uncomfortable. She thus frequently incorporated her current stress or feelings into her songs. She used it as inspiration for writing, composing, and singing the song B.O.M.D., short for Boy of My Dreams.
On May 29, 2018, a tweet, claiming that the song may also be Girl of My Dreams, was sent out to the public. She owes a lot to her newfound college closest friends for giving her the guts to publicly acknowledge her sexuality. Clairo has now come out and said she is lesbian.
It was really simple for her to come up to them and share my issue with them because all of her closest friends were homosexual when she started college. She would have a sense of acceptance that she lacked as a child.
Clairo stated that she is certainly not straight but is still unsure of her sexual orientation in a subsequent interview with Out Magazine. In contrast to what most people expected, she wasn’t bisexual. She’s still figuring things out for herself, thus details about her boyfriend are still unclear.
