After more than 25 years in the music industry, Da Brat came out earlier this year, revealing that she is in a relationship with Jesseca Dupart, an entrepreneur and social media personality.

But during a recent YouTube interview with singer and reality TV star Kandi Burruss, Da Brat said that she isn’t big on labels like ‘stud’, ‘femme’ or ‘stemme’, which is a woman who exhibits attributes that are feminine and masculine.

“What the (expletive) is a stemme? No, I’m sorry. I’m not either one of those,” Da Brat said. “It’s so many titles, I’m not that. A stem is something that comes out of a rose or a tree branch. I’m not a stem, I’m just Brat.”

During the conversation with Kandi, Da Brat, who released songs like I Think They Like Me and Loverboy, also revealed that she once dated former Philadelphia 76ers star Allen Iverson.
