Singer-songwriter Anne-Marie opened up about her sexuality last week and confirmed something we’ve all long suspected to be true: everyone is kinda gay.
The “Rockabye” singer sat down with The Line of Best Fit and said she’s attracted to both men and women. “I’ve never ever just been attracted to men,” she said. “I’ve never just been attracted to women. I’ve never felt the need to tell anyone that I’m bisexual.”
However, she doesn’t necessarily define herself as bisexual, saying:“I don’t feel like I am. I just feel like I’m attracted to who I like.”
“I honestly feel like everyone is like that,” she added.
Anne-Marie’s song “Perfect” reflects these beliefs. She says she wrote the LGBTQ-friendly song as a means to normalize same-sex love, with lyrics that read, “And I’ll love who I want to love, ’cause this love is gender-free.” She hopes the song inspires body-confidence and embracing gender-less romance.
The 27-year old is the third singer-songwriter in a week to declare herself as queer, along with Janelle Monae and Kehlani, who came out last year but adjusted her label this week. Anne-Marie is joined by an already long list of out queer pop stars, like Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Lauren Jauregui, Halsey, Lady Gaga, Kesha, Tove Lo and moreproving that no one is 100 percent straightor at least in pop music.
Anne-Marie’s debut album Speak Your Mind, released April 27, features her queer-positive anthem “Perfect” and a collaboration with Marshmello called “FRIENDS.”
