In 2016, during an interview with New York Magazine, the James opened up that he often-questioned sexuality saying "Yeah, I’m a little gay, and there’s a gay James,".
However, he clarified that he doesn’t sleep with men. He said;
If your definition of gay and straight is who I sleep with, then I guess you could say I’m a gay c–k tease. It’s where my allegiance lies, where my sensibilities lie, how I define myself.
