Jessie J opens up to Glamour Magazine about her sexuality.
When she sang about loving herself in ‘Who You Are’, Jessie J was being as serious as a heart attack. The singer brazenly stood up for her bisexuality in her latest feature in Glamour Magazine and reprimanded the media for constantly prying into her private life.
Jessie told Glamour magazine:
“For me, I want it to be less about sexuality and more about being comfortable in who you fall in love with. If I meet someone and I like them, I don’t care if they’re a boy or a girl. You should never, ever apologize for anything that makes you happy.
The frustrating thing is that if I was with a guy right now, I’d be [considered] straight. But If I was with a girl, I’d be “gay.” When I was with my ex-girlfriend, I used to take her around and say, “This is my girlfriend.” People would be comfortable with it because I was. That’s what annoys me about the media. I’ve never tried to make [my sexuality] something that’s going to put me in newspapers or magazines. I’m never, ever going to let it be something that sells my music.
Sexuality shouldn’t define you. It should be part of who you are. At the moment I’m single, and I’m happy and learning about myself. Music is the love of my life right now.”
Is there really anything left to say? Well, aside from the fact that she’s amazingly talented and totally rocks.
