According to Smith, yes

Jaden Smith shocked fans during a recent performance, claiming that he is in a relationship with Odd Future frontman Tyler, the Creator. "Tyler doesn't wanna say, but Tyler is my muthaf-ckin' boyfriend, and he's been my muthaf-ckin' boyfriend my whole fuckin' life," Smith yelled, according to XXL. He added, "Tyler, the Creator is my fuckin' boyfriend! It's true."

XXL points out that, as Smith shouted this during his 2018 Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival performance, it was met by laughs and smiles from an offstage Tyler, but fans can't tell if there's any truth behind the statement.

Smith isn't one to hold back information, running a stream-of-thought Twitter account with a penchant for the shift key. He's been known to embrace a gender-fluid style when it comes to fashion but has not publicly stated anything regarding his sexuality.

Fans are wondering if this declaration was his way of coming out, or if it was a questionable troll. As for me, I'm ready for this to be hip-hop's new power couple... Jayler? Tyden?

Both artists kept up the mystery on Twitter, with Tyler not confirming nor denying the claim.

Previously, Smith tweeted that his forthcoming album would "make people express their love to their crush and come out the closet to their parents, etc..." Maybe he was referring to himself? We'll have to wait until November 17 to see.

"Hope you're okay up there," okay

Billie Eilish paid tribute again to XXXTentacion; this time, for the one-year anniversary of his death. In a series of three posts to her Instagram Stories, Eilish remembered the rapper without naming him directly, writing "miss you," "hope you're okay up there," and "long live you" over black, blank screens. The tribute, screen-grabbed by a fan account and first reported on by NME, has already garnered criticism online.

"Up where baby he's in hell," a popular tweet from @vondylantweets wrote. Jokes aside, Eilish's continued support of the rapper and convenient refusal to acknowledge his long history of violent abuse is extremely disappointing.

Last year on the day of his death, Eilish posted a screengrab of a conversation with XXXTentacion captioned, "the strongest human being ive ever known. all you ever did was care." Months later, she played a tribute song for XXXTentacion, and was called out for her disappointing ignorance of his horrifying history of abuse (notably by NYLON).

One day following her first performance of the song, recordings of XXXTentacion admitting to domestic abuse and stabbing nine people were released by Pitchfork. In April of this year, Eilish defended her performance yet again, insisting her right to mourn while still not acknowledging his actions.
