Tony Labrusca broke down assumptions about him in his latest vlog, including speculations surrounding his sexuality.

The star of BL series “Hello Stranger” read out social media users’ comments in a video posted last Wednesday, Sept. 23. Among those comments was one that told him, “You’re so gay” and another that read, “You’re still in the closet.”

Labrusca said he did not mind the assumptions but admitted feeling frustrated because, despite his accomplishments, he is mainly viewed through his sexuality.

“I get frustrated when people focus in on my sexuality because it makes me feel like no amount of work or accomplishments that I’ve done — I feel like it gets undermined because people wanna focus on my sexuality instead of my capability,” he said.

However, he did enjoy the interest. “I love when people make these assumptions about me because it means people are intrigued by me at the end of the day.”

“But for me I don’t identify myself as homosexual, but I don’t think that matters anymore,” he said. “Even if I said I wasn’t gay, the people who think I am gay are going to keep believing I am gay. There’s nothing I can do that can change their minds.”

“Whatever I identify as, it doesn’t matter. There’s still going to be people who hate me because I’m me,” he added.

He also shared about his dating history when he answered the comment, “You’re a player that would get over people’s hearts.”

He said he thinks he should date more and that in fact, “showbiz has hindered it.”

Labrusca also admitted, “I do get over people really fast just because I have a goal for myself.”

“I’ve had a lot of crushes on people but when you see your goal and when you visualize

Celtics’ singular goal: Stop Heat 3’s to force Game 7

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Florida — There have been two undeniable truths about the Miami Heat this season.

They must make 3’s to win.

They aren’t invincible with sizable leads.

The Boston Celtics have scouting and analytics teams that undoubtedly know these trends. But, really, so would anyone who simply can read a boxscore.

Take away Miami’s 3’s, and the Heat are easier to beat. The Celtics proved that again in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals when they extended their season with a victory — and will aim to take the same tact Sunday night when they meet the Heat again in another must-win for Boston.

“They’re going to hit some shots, they’re going to make some plays,” Celtics forward Jayson Tatum said. “They’ve got some good players. We’re just trying to make it as tough as we could.”

The Heat have played 87 games this season and shot below 20% from 3-point range in just three of them — one of them being Friday night, when the Celtics prevailed 121-108 to cut Miami’s lead in the series to 3-2.

Miami was 7 for 36 from deep, just 19%.

“Regardless of whether it’s going in or not, that can’t affect your commitment on the other side of the floor,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “And it felt like it did.”

The Celtics confined most of their Saturday plans to a film session; the Heat were doing the same along with some optional workouts. Heat center Bam Adebayo, who blamed himself for the Game 5 loss

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone believes Luis Suarez can lift the club to new heights and said his new signing will be in the squad to face Granada on Sunday.

Suarez has joined Atletico after being pushed out by Barcelona, who allowed the 33-year-old to leave for free, with only an extra 5 million euros due in variables.

“His arrival is an opportunity for us to keep growing as a club and to have new energy as a team,” said Simeone.

“We spoke before he went to Barcelona at a time when the possibility came up that he might join us. The last six years he’s had have been incredibly successful.

“His teammates want to make him settle in as quickly as possible so his goals and game can help us win.”

Simeone said Suarez trained with his new side on Friday and is in line to make his debut against Granada at the Wanda Metropolitano this weekend.

“Yesterday he had a long day, he finished training very well with the team,” said Simeone.

“He seems to be so motivated and excited and of course he will be in the squad, available for the team. Tomorrow we will see if he starts or comes on in the second half.”

Suarez has said he was drawn to the
