Frenchie Davis Comes Out

The former American Idol talks about her personal life

Fans got to see Frenchie Davis belt out “I Kissed a Girl (And I Liked It)” on The Voice after she was kicked off of American Idol a few years ago. But the singer recently told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the song was more fact than fiction – and she’s been dating a woman for the past year. “I wasn’t out before the relationship, but I wasn’t in,” she said. “I dated men and women, though lesbians weren’t feeling the bisexual thing. Now I’m in love with a woman I think I can be with forever.”

Davis – who’s appeared on Broadway in Rent and Ain’t Misbehavin’ – has been making the rounds at Gay Pride celebrations around the country this summer. She admitted in the interview that gay fans make up a huge part of her audiences. She recently released a new dance single, “Love’s Got a Hold on Me.”
