Move over, Anna Paquin.

Singer Vanessa Carlton publicly declared, in front of a crowd of more than 18,000, that she is bisexual, a courageous admission, especially in that setting.

"I've never said this before, but I'm a proud bisexual woman," the 29-year-old "Thousand Miles" proclaimed at the Nashville Pride festival on Saturday.

Of course, the celebration in Tennessee made for an appropriate coming out party, as it were, as it supports / recognizes individuals in LGBT community.

BI THE WAY: Vanessa Carlton is open and proud of her sexuality.

Not surprisingly, the audience was very supportive. We're happy for Vanessa, because making such an announcement couldn't have been easy for anyone.

The singer and pianist previously dated douchebag singer John Mayer (really, who hasn't at this point) and Third Eye blind frontman Stephan Jenkins.
