J Balvin clears up speculation about his sexuality

Colombian singer J Balvin has dismissed rumours suggesting he ‘outed’ himself as a gay man at the 2016 Premio Lo Nuestro awards last week (ends19Feb16).
The star raised eyebrows at the Miami, Florida prizegiving on Thursday (18Feb16) when he delivered an impassioned speech about acceptance and finding happiness as he collected the coveted Artist of the Year title.
“I invite you to get out of the box, be yourself,” he told fans and fellow artists at the ceremony. “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.”
Gossips became convinced Balvin had just ‘come out’ as a gay man, but he has since taken to social media to clear up the speculation, insisting he would be open with fans if he was homosexual.
“If I were gay, I would have already shown you my boyfriend, giving him little kisses, but I love women – and a lot!” he declared on Instagram. “What I said (at the awards show) was that people should do what they feel like and be happy.”
Balvin also collected the Urban Album of the Year for La Familia B Sides at the Premio Lo Nuestro awards show.
