Okay, first of all. Relax.

Rapper and actor Machine Gun Kelly has commented on Troye Sivan's upcoming album Bloom. The 28-year-old tweeted about how "weird" it was that Troye's Bloom was coming out a year after the rapper released an album of the same name.

The rapper is clearly referencing Troye Sivan, who announced earlier this month that his sophomore album would be called Bloom.

Troye Sivan's Bloom is not actually out yet, but the rapper has commented on what a coincidence it is that the Australian pop singer would release an album of the same name.

It's unclear if there is any underlying accusation here or if this is merely an observation.

It is worth noting that, in 2016 (the year before Machine Gun Kelly released his Bloom album), two artists, RÜFÜS and Kim Myhr also released LPs called Bloom. Popular indie rock outfit Beach House also released an album called Bloom in 2012.

It's almost like Bloom is a popular word that has been around longer than 12 calendar months.

Anyway, people debated about whether it was "weird" that "that dude" had named his album Bloom as well.

A few people pointed out that there were literally dozens of albums called Bloom on Spotify.

While some folks agreed with Machine Gun Kelly.

A lot of people also wanted it to be known that Bloom, as a word, was not invented in 2017.

As "weird" as Machine Gun Kelly finds this, we're going to have to rule that it's nothing more than a coincidence. Court is adjourned!
