"American Idol" runner up Crystal Bowersox came out as bisexual on Dec. 3, 2013. She just released a new song called "Coming Out For Christmas," which is about going home for the holidays and introducing her family to her girlfriend.

Crystal Bowersox also cut off her dreadlocks and posted a picture of her hair on Twitter. In addition to her new song she cleared up any confusion on Twitter by tweeting, “Let me set the record straight. I’m Bi. Pun intended.” While on "American Idol" Crystal was a single mother of one son. She married Brian Walker shortly after "Idol" and the couple divorced earlier this year.

Crystal Bowersox said in a statement to the press, “The holidays are here, and it pains me to think that anyone would be left alone or be forbidden to be with their family over something as silly as their sexual orientation. I hope it will serve as a holiday anthem for people who may finally have the courage to live their life as their true authentic self, proudly and unapologetically, and that their friends and family will love and accept them with loving open arms.”
