Carlton -- who was previously linked to John Mayer and Third Eye Blind rocker Stephan Jenkins -- spawned a Top 5 hit "A Thousand Miles" a few years back.

She isn't the only famous female to come out recently: Last April, True Blood's Anna Paquin declared she was bi during a public service announcement.
