Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui publicly came out as bisexual in November 2016, and has said she feels ”motivated” rather than ”scared” when it comes to showing off who she is, as she wants to encourage people to ”find the strength to accept” themselves.

You can’t use the fact that I’m bisexual against me if that’s something I’m proud of. I feel motivated more than scared to share who I am because it makes me feel awesome when someone comes up to me and says that because of me she was able to find the strength to accept herself.”

Talking to Seventeen magazine, Jauregui says she still has her struggles with her image, but says ”every single inch” of her body makes her who she is, and she doesn’t want to change that.

She added:

I’ve had times where everyone’s like, ‘Wow, you look so skinny! You look great!’ And they don’t know I’m in a really depressed place, and that’s why I look like that. I’m all about doing little things that make you feel healthier, like going to the gym or drinking water.

If I’m like, ‘I hate what I’m seeing in the mirror,’ I say, ‘Okay, what are we going to do to fix it?’ Regardless, every single inch and scar is what makes you you.”

In May, the singer waved the flag of inclusivity on Strangers alongside fellow bisexual pop star Halsey.
