J Balvin took to social media recently in order to dispel the rumors that he's gay.

In an Instagram post, the Colombian rapper – sporting purple hair – told fans if he were in fact homosexual, he would not hide it, but he isn't.

“If I were gay, I would have already shown you my boyfriend, giving him kisses,” he said in a video. “But if you just knew how much I love women ... I’m sorry.”

Last week, when he accepted the award for Artist of the Year at Premios Los Nuestro, Balvin said, “I invite you to get out of the box, be yourself. If you have blue hair, pink, yellow; if you have a broken tooth, if you have other sexual preferences … Be yourself, fight for your happiness always.”

His speech garnered a lot of attention and left many fans speculating whether Balvin was thinking of coming out of the closet.

In the caption to his video post, Balvin wrote: “If I were gay, I would have already shown you my boyfriend, giving him little kisses, but I love women – and a lot! What I said [at the award show] was that people should do what they feel like and be happy.”
