Sixteen year old burgeoning model and actress Lily-Rose Depp just came out as sexually fluid via Instagram in the most epically casual way, and frankly, I’m ecstatic for her. The news broke by way of a photo taken for artist iO Tillett Wright’s Self Evident Truths project, a series depicting 10,000 people in the U.S. who identify as “not 100 percent straight.”  “She falls somewhere on the vast spectrum,” Wright wrote in the Instragam caption. “And I couldn't be happier to welcome her to the family."   I'm so proud of my baby girl @lilyrose_depp. Read More
