“Glee” star Kevin McHale declared that the newly released Ariana Grande song is “gayer” than he is. 

The actor, who starred on the musical series as Artie Abrams for six seasons, publicly addressed his sexuality for the first time amid rumors that he’s dating actor Austin McKenzie.

#NoTearsLeftToCry is gayer than me and I ACCEPT. Ty @ArianaGrande,” he wrote on Twitter Friday in one of several tweets praising the pop star. 

He also requested that Grande drop a remix of the song featuring Janet Jackson, which, for the record, we are fully on board with. 

McHale has stoked speculation for months with photos of himself and McKenzie on Instagram. Earlier in the week, he seemed to confirm their romance, and shared a photo of himself and McKenzie cuddling together with hashtag #mycoachella in the caption.
