Greyson Chance, who performed the second best version of Lady Gaga's “Paparazzi” of all time (Gaga's was the best — still my favorite of her songs) and shot to viral fame in 2010, has come out as gay.

Even though he's just 19, he wrote — in an articulate, expressive Facebook post — his coming out was “most definitely overdue.”

Chance wrote:

I came to fully recognize that I was gay when I was sixteen. I decided not to publicize my sexuality largely due to a matter of privacy, as I was still trying to find comfort and confidence within my own skin. Further, I always found conversations regarding music, politics, art, books — and the greatness of Nas' catalog — to be far more interesting than what type of guy I was into.

He went on to write:

... it took years to write this message. Nevertheless, I figured now was the time to let a few more friends know that I am happy, I am here fo ryou, and I am proud of who I am.

I covered Greyson when he was first becoming famous, which was spurred on by his signing by out role model Ellen DeGeneres, and he was always a sweetheart. It's great to read that he is out and proud.

Congrats, Greyson!
