Madonna has ‘come out as gay’ on TikTok.

The 64-year-old pop star took to the popular social media platform to come out of the closet, it seems.

She revealed her sexuality to her fans in a short, five-second-long clip. In the video, Madonna can be seen holding a pair of hot pink underwear.

The caption over the video reads: “If I miss, I’m gay.”

Then as she throws the underwear in the direction of a bin, totally missing and then shrugging.

It didn’t take long for the clip to cause erupt on social media, gaining 1.3 million views in less than two hours.

Fans flooded the comments section, with some wondering if they’ve heard this type of announcement before, while others noted her sexuality has long been a topic of debate for music fans.

One user said: “What in the ’80s is happening?”

Another added: “Did Madonna just come out? And I’m witnessing it in real time?”

A second, just wrote: “WHAT?”

A third chipped in with: “Are we like witnessing history in the making?”

However, it has to be noted Madonna has appeared to mention she likes both men and women before. Probably only remembered by people we were around 20 years ago …

In reality, Madonna has slightly discussed her sexuality in the past, preferring not to fully clarify her preferences.

She has never confirmed or denied any of the rumours of dating women in the past, however The Sun states she has encourage speculation about her love life.

Back in 1990, shortly after her ‘Justify My Love’ video clip aired on television, she said: “I think everybody has a bisexual nature. That’s my theory. I could be wrong.”

In a 1991 letter to supermodel Amanda Cazalet, which was made public by The Sun, said: “I think you are the most beautiful woman in the world. I’m dying to kiss you again. I fantasise about you all the time.”

Madonna continued: “I cannot explain my attraction — nevertheless it’s there. I’m attracted to very few women in this way.”

Those old enough to remember 2003, will recall the iconic moment Madonna, Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera also famously caused a stir on stage at the MTV VMA Awards with a steamy kiss.
