The 30-year-old French singer, who has opened for both M.I.A. and Foster the People, was discussing her new project, an X-rated zine she’s compiling that will be made up of the scores of sexually charged, NSFW direct messages sent to her over Instagram every day.
While discussing how she would phrase a DM to ask someone out on a date, Sokolinksi ended up dropping the L-word to describe her current relationship, which happens to be with Kristen Stewart.
I think if I was in the need of doing that right now, I would totally be able to come up with something. But I’m very, very, very in love and very happy in a relationship, so I don’t have that urge.”
The pair have not officially confirmed their relationship status, but they have been displaying plenty of PDA in LA and Paris over the past few weeks.
Sokolinksi has also referred to being in a long distance relationship, tweeting earlier this month that she spends “every minute of my days and nights loving her from afar.”
Even though she did admit to W that she has gone on a “totally successful date” with someone who contacted her over Instagram, Sokolinski said that isn’t how she met her current girlfriend. In fact, the Bordeaux native adorably noted the way they met “was very OG.”
Sokolinski has been very upfront about being bisexual in the past and said that she often gets DMs from both men and women.
I’ve always been open with my sexuality, meaning I don’t really care about gender. Sex for so long was such a taboo thing. You couldn’t be free with your sexuality and say that you like it. But it’s one of the biggest joys of life. If you find one partner who you love having sex with, it’s the best! This new generation is a lot more liquid with sexuality and it’s really refreshing.”
