Newcomer Troye Sivan meets oldcomer Elton John for Out ...

In the freshly released meeting of the musical minds, Sivan says of his SNL performance:

It was probably the single most overwhelming experience of Troye Sivan Willy Chavarriamy life. It was always my dream to play on that show, and every time I’d think about it, my hands would start sweating. I’d think, “I don’t know what I’m actually going to do if I ever book it.” There were a couple of moments during rehearsal when I was thinking, “What if I just fainted right now onstage? Would I get to go home?”

Sivan goes on to say of fashion:

Fashion is something I was really scared of when I was a little kid because I didn’t want anyone to think I was gay. I foolishly thought fashion was a very gay thing. I’ve obviously learned and grown a lot, but I feel like I only recently let myself really start to enjoy how I dress, and experiment with how I dress, and sign to brands that I love. It’s still a new thing for me that I’m figuring out every day. I definitely didn’t have the courage to dress how I wanted when I was younger.

John says, of being gay:

I love being gay, and I wouldn’t want it any other way, but being gay doesn’t define me. It’s part of who I am, but that’s it. I’ve never thought I had to live a gay lifestyle because I’m gay. I have a lot of gay friends and I can be very lethal — I have a sense of humor — and I like to dress up. I can be camp when I want to be. But I love things that aren’t particularly gay, like soccer.

Wow, Elton — what a rebel. You're practically fluid.
