- Artiste says websites are misleading the public

CURTIS CAMPBELL, STAR Writer

Dancehall artiste Pamputtae has distance herself from allegations that she is gay. According to the artiste, a website circulated a misleading picture and story which have been sending a wrong message to her fans.

"There is a rumour going around that Pamputtae is gay and I don't want that in my life right now. My friend kept a birthday party and she hugged me and kissed me. She was simply greeting and congratulating me on my new birth because I am pregnant right now. But because of how the picture tek, it looks misleading to the public. Then a certain website put out a story to add negativity to the picture. It's damaging to my life, so I want people to know it is nothing like that," she said.

According to Pamputtae, her friend is equally upset and they have been best friends for many years.

"She is a good friend. Maybe my career wouldn't even be where it is today if it wasn't her because she is always supportive," she continued.

"Some people wey a tarnish mi name, look how much people a get rape and kidnapped, a dat unno fig guh talk bout. When unno see real gay people unno nuh sey nothing bout it ... so stop tarnishing my name and character. I don't have a clue what you are talking about," she said.

Pamputtae also made her sexuality clear by drawing for some of her popular singles.

"A me sey ride it and sidung pon it, suh a straight man to mi," she said.

The deejay is currently in Canada where she is expected to perform at a dancehall event. She disclosed that she already wrote a song about her situation called Tarnish Mi Name.
