Singer Jess Glynne Doesn’t Want Her Sexuality Labelled

Jess Glynne has previously spoken of how her debut album was inspired by breaking up with an ex-girlfriend.

I’ve only ever been with one girl in my life and that’s the girl from my album.”

However, in a recent interview, she explained she doesn’t want her honesty to mean she is branded as straight, lesbian or bisexual – instead, she wants to avoid labels all together.

Talking to the The Daily Star Sunday, the singer said.

It was hard at the beginning of the relationship, because until then I had only ever gone out with guys. But I am who I am. I’m never going to put a label on my sexuality and people should never feel uncomfortable about who they love.”

She later explained why she was so honest with fans over her sexuality and the inspiration for her songs.

I wanted my album to be as honest as possible. I’ve laid all my cards on the table and gave the truth. There was never a question of hiding the story behind it. I pray one day we get to a point where it’s no longer a thing.”
