    All he talks about is/are

    1. My boyfriend is boring. All he talks about is computers and music.
    2. My boyfriend is boring. All he talks about are computers and music.

    Which of the above sentences is more natural?
    Thanks.

    Re: All he talks about is/are

    They both sound natural.

    However, the other way round it would have to be 'Computers and music are all he talks about'.
