Singaporean Pop Star Wils Is Back After He Says Label Dropped Him For Being Gay

The singer independently released a new video, “Empty,” which is an ode to the loneliness of queer hookup culture.

Wils is proud to embrace his authentic self ― while canoodling with a handsome love interest, no less ― in the music video for his new single, “Empty.” 
The pop singer, who hails from Singapore, released the video on his YouTube channel last Friday. The moody and atmospheric clip, he said, is one of his most personal yet. 
A one-time protégé of “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson, Wils says he was dropped by his Asian record label after he told them he was gay. Before he could open up about his sexuality to fans on Instagram, he said label executives told him his career was over, promptly shutting down all of his social media accounts. (He has stated he cannot publicly identify the company due to contractural terms.)

A beautiful song and a beautiful guy. These conservative Asian (or any) businesses need to get a life and embrace diversity. Screw homophobic traditions. We have made such discrimination illegal in New Zealand.
