Frenchie Davis, The Voice Season 1 semi-finalist who was notoriously disqualified from American Idol Season 2 when producers discovered that appeared on a porn website has come out as lesbian to the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
“I love the gays,” she says. “I love the gay boys. They have that awesome, masculine energy, but there’s also something else going on as well.”
There’s also something else going on with Davis. She’s been dating a woman for the past year.
“I wasn’t out before the relationship, but I wasn’t in,” she says. “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.”
Frenchie’s is spending June hitting the Gay Pride Circuit, including PrideFest in St. Louis. She is also about to drop a new single, “Love’s Got a Hold on Me.”
“I owe ‘The Voice’ for figuring out what my sound is,” says Frenchie, “Christina (Aguilera) had me signing dance pop. That’s something I initially would not have chosen, but it took off.”
Congrats, Frenchie, on both your personal and professional life coming together in beautiful way.
