After a few seconds of confusion and murmurs of “Wait, what?” from Darden’s co-host, they finally just asked Murray flat out, to which he replied, “I’m gay!" He further elaborated that he means he's happy. "I been happy all my f**king life!”

“I’m coming out the closet with new music and a new documentary," Murray reiterated. "I’m coming out the closet fresh and I’m tearing all these motherf**kas' up!”

After the announcement, Murray got more serious, speaking about his stint in rehab over the holidays. “I was drinking and I was smoking,” he admitted. “So I had to go in and clear my head and I got a psychiatrist.
