Maluma, tangled in speculation from fans about his sexuality for years, has sought to set the record straight about his sexuality.

As in, literally straight. He’s straight.

During an Instagram live questions and answers session Tuesday, the “11 PM” singer explained that if he were gay, he would have come out already.

What did he say?

The Colombian hitmaker told his 49 million followers: “People are stupid, aren’t they?

“Yes, that is, how can they say I’m gay?”

He continued “If I were gay, I would have already spoken about it.”

Maluma then defended himself amid the accusations that he’s gay by joking: “The one who said that I am gay, lend me your girlfriend to see how gay I am.”

Petition to leave speculating about people’s sexualities in 2019, please.
