Moana star Auli’i Cravalho used an innovative TikTok video and lyrics from an Eminem song to come out as bisexual.

The 19-year-old actress took to her TikTok on Thursday, where she lip-synced portions of Eminem’s Those Kinda Nights, featuring Ed Sheeran, particularly one that read, ‘She said: “No, I’m bi.”‘ 

She further confirmed the news on Twitter, when a fan asked if she liked girls and she responded, ‘if i may escort you to my tiktok… @auliicravalho.’

The section of Those Kinda Nights lyrics that she lip-synced to are, ‘Seriously though, jokes aside, how you doin’? You straight? / She said: “No, I’m bi” / She said: “Are you drunk?” I said: “No, I’m high” / I’m checkin’ out the chick, she said: “So am I.”‘

The actress didn’t lip-sync to the entire section, though, starting with ‘Seriously though, jokes aside,’ indicating what she was about to say was serious.

She also lip-synced to ‘No I’m bi,’ along with, ‘She said, “Are you drunk?” and then ‘So am I’ as the brief video came to an end.
