YUNGBLUD Opens Up About 'Fluid' Sexuality
YUNGBLUD has opened about his sexuality, saying he’s proud to be part of a generation that is open to experimenting.
“I am more straight. [But If] I walked down the street and met a f**king bloke tomorrow, or a trans person, you never know,” he told Britain’s Attitude, “It’s about connection. I’m very fluid about it.”
The 22-year-old singer, whose real name is Dominic Harrison, said he moved from his hometown of Doncaster, England to London “to be liberated, to be able to paint my nails, to f**king try sex with a guy, to try everything, to fulfil my fantasies and figure out who I am.”
YUNGBLUD said he enjoys messing with gender stereotypes. "That’s why I f**king wear a dress on stage. We’ve been brought up with such boundaries: woman wears dress, man sees woman’s curves, you can make baby.
“Western civilization put women in dresses and men in trousers. Before that, in medieval times, every f**ker wore a dress.”
He said some days he wants to look “girly as f**k” and other days he wants to look “like I’ll beat the s**t out of you.”
YUNGBLUD explained: “I’ll be Anita from West Side Story then suddenly transform into Liam Gallagher.”
The “Hope for the Underrated Youth” singer is currently dating pop star Halsey, who has previously self-identified as bisexual. Earlier this month she shared a birthday message for her beau on Instagram. “You leave an irrevocable shine on every soul you come in contact with. mine is gleaming,” she wrote. “I love you.”
