Ariana Grande's new music is making her fans feel all sorts of ways -- Kevin McHale included. 

The Glee star took to Twitter on Thursday to praise the singer's new track, "No Tears Left to Cry," alongside a subtle announcement about his sexuality.

Fans have speculated about McHale's romantic life after he posted photos of himself appearing to cuddle up to someone special. The 29-year-old actor, who played Artie Abrams on Glee, had not commented publicly on his sexuality before Thursday. 

"#NoTearsLeftToCry is gayer than me and I ACCEPT," McHale wrote. "Ty @ArianaGrande." He later added, "I'd like to request a remix with @JanetJackson. ty for ur time. @ArianaGrande."

Fans were quick to celebrate McHale's announcement on social media. "Congratulations, Kevin! So happy for you," one user wrote, while another commented, "I'm so proud." 

Former Disney star Alyson Stoner also recently came out, revealing in an emotional essay for Teen Vogue that she fell in love with a woman

“To be completely honest, the non-canned answer is that it's still kind of scary, because I think it's a personal journey of discovery and there's a lot of confusion involved no matter who you are and what you're struggling with," she told ET earlier this month. 

“I'm thankful that there's a community of people who want to support and if we're representing it in film and TV that means that many more young people can find themselves in characters,” she continued. “And it's no strange agenda. We're not trying to force any belief system. It's just simply allowing people to be who they really are.”
