British singer Jessie J has apparently decided she is no longer bisexual, telling fans she is ready to settle down.
The singer previously said she swings both ways, but it seems things have changed.
The singer has always pretty outspoken when it came to her sexuality.
She previously told Glamour magazine, “I’ve never used it as a gimmick. I’ve always said I’ve dated guys and I’ve dated girls. If I’m in love, I’m in love”.
She also announced “Jessie J is bisexual: to the crowd at London’s G.A.Y. club in 2011. (You can see that part at the 0:47 mark).
The British singer took to Twitter on Sunday night, writing, “Remember the thing that you tried/did back in the day. The phase you had? That is so not YOU anymore?! And you look back and think wow how I’ve changed. I would never do that now,” she said in an extended tweet. “Something that you don’t even talk about or want to talk about anymore. Because you’ve moved on? That was just part of you growing up? Discovering yourself and working out what you liked and disliked…. Remember?”
She adds, “’ve noticed some people hold onto mine because they were blogged and put into the media… Passing comments made into facts that can never change. Guess what? They can change. As they should.”
One of her followers was very confused, asking her to “stop speaking in riddles” and “get straight to the point”.
Jessie then responded, “I fancy/date/love men and only men. Is that ‘straight to the point’ enough?”
Jessie quickly deleted the tweet and tried to get her fans on a different topic. She tweeted, “Now that’s cleared up. What’s new with you guys?”
That didn’t go over well, with on Twitter user posting, “Jessie J acting like being bisexual is a phase! And were trying to fight for equality and being born this way? Jog on”.
Another fan said, “Jessie J has basically perpetuated the idea bisexuality isn’t real and she’s a piece of s**t for makin a big deal out of her ‘straightness.'” (sic)
Jessie J responded to all the criticism, saying, “I don’t regret anything I ever said, but I never knew back then that whatever I said became a fact that I couldn’t change. I’m just so bored of it, and that’s kind of it – I want to stop talking about it completely now and find myself a husband.”
She also ranted on Twitter, writing, “The hate on my TL is uncalled for and ridiculous! I never lied about my sexuality, I never labelled myself, the media and some of the public did. I said almost 5 years ago now. I was asked in an interview back in the day about relationships, first time ever, and I was honest and then BAM it took over, the word bisexual before my name on almost every article I read? Like I had to say it when I introduced myself? It was crazy. Instantly I was boxed.”
