Singer-songwriter Jenny Owen Youngs on Wednesday announced she is gay, and engaged.

The 32-year-old Youngs, whose single Fuck Was I from her 2005 self-released album Batten the Hatches appeared on the second season premier of Showtime's Weeds, came out in a blog post written for the site

“I'm writing to tell you, among other things, that I am super gay,” Youngs wrote. “This may or may not come as a surprise to you. If it does: Surprise! If it does not: You were right all along! Either way: Hooray!”

“In a perfect world, nobody would have to experience any of the negative side-effects of figuring out that you're gay, which can include feeling confused, shameful, afraid, lost or alone. In a perfect world, everyone could just like who they like, and get on with it.”

“Spoiler alert: We do not live in a perfect world.”

Youngs said that she didn't come out earlier because “it wasn't anybody's business.”

“I still maintain that it is not anybody's business. I don't think anyone should have to feel an obligation to come out. I don't think that outing people is cool. I think every person has the right to privacy, and should be able to share themselves with their friends, their family, and the world at their own pace, in their own time. However, I've come to realize in recent months that a big part of my desire to hide this aspect of myself was rooted in those dusty old feelings: that there is something wrong, something bad, something less-than about being gay.”

Youngs added that she and fiance Kristin Russo of were set to marry this summer.
