In a recent interview with Spin magazine, R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe made comments about the positive effect of being an out, gay public figure – quotes that quickly caught traction online. The interview triggered a flurry of discussion about his own sexuality – and his decision to finally acknowledge publicly that he's gay.

Now, for the first time since his much-buzzed about interview, Stipe speaks out to PEOPLE in this taped video statement from Paris.

After the procedure, she admitted: "That did not not hurt."
