The singer was dragged on Twitter for his incorrect statement during his Oscars acceptance speech.

In his speech, he claimed to be the first openly gay man to win an Academy Award and has been on a social media hiatus since then.

He seems to have recovered from his bruised ego and we are glad to see him recording new music.
