Tell-all book reveals popstar told to lie about image; nobody is surprised by this

'She was advised not to come out': New book reveals Jessie J was told to tell fans she was bisexual rather than a lesbian


Jessie J is a lesbian who was forced to hide her sexuality to make her more 'trendy', a new book has claimed.
The shocking new publication says that The Voice coach was told by record bosses that she would be more appealing to fans if she said that she was bisexual rather than gay.

Had no idea about her!



PS: Do people still believe bisexuality doesnt exist? I was fucking a guy who liked men just as much as he liked women. It wasnt like he was trying to hide it either, he was legit into both.

I think its because most people who say their bi usually go towards one gender more than the other? Like my friends Bi and been with a few girls but mostly with guys.

Maybe they find it easier to be on the straight side because its more "accepting"?

An interesting blog post a friend of a friend wrote on tumblr to these ends just last week:

The bi thing is complicated for several reasons, all of which make my head hurt. But I imagine that there are a lot of bisexual men out there who don't want to come out, for reasons like, well, maybe he prefers women so it's easier to just say he's straight rather than have everyone think he's closeted, or vice versa, so good on your fuck buddy for being out about it.

I think it's more "acceptable" for women to be bi for the extremely depressing reason that female sexuality is seen as "existing for men," so a woman being bi just always morphs itself into being about men and it bums me out. Bi people in general get bad labels - or maybe bad perceptions, idk.

To address your question like I meant to, I think people don't think bisexuality exists because there isn't a lot of representation of it, for those reasons and others. :(

people are fucking ignorant and i'm losing my patience over it

my theory is that sexuality exists on a spectrum...no one is 100% anything, per se, as human beings are sexual creatures and we often find ourselves having feelings to different degrees to different sexes

either way, yes, there's a lot of people that don't "believe" in bisexuality, but these people in my experience tend to be homophobes in general and ignorant about human sexuality as a whole

Yeah, most (ignorant) people believe that sexuality is black and white when it's actually black, white, blue, green, red, yellow, orange, pink, silver, tan, gray, and so on and so forth.

I don't understand why some people think bisexuality isn't real. I mean there are gay people and there are straight people, why is it so hard to believe that there are some people who are in between / both?
leatherandjeans 19th-Apr-2012 10:45 am (UTC)
Tbh I'd love it if she were gay and was happy to come out. An openly lesbian popstar, yes please.
yehyijun 19th-Apr-2012 10:55 am (UTC)
What an asshole move if this is true. Regardless if it is or isn't, I hope she sues her or something.
zoewwelover 19th-Apr-2012 10:59 am (UTC)
This is sad if its true. Celebritys should be setting an example for people who are scared to come out and be making it totally ok and acceptable :(
insomniachobs 19th-Apr-2012 11:06 am (UTC)
I don't know whether this is true for Jessie specifically, but in general... there does seem to be this general attitude that anybody who identifies as bi must actually be gay and just denying it. That irritates me.
scheisse 19th-Apr-2012 11:08 am (UTC)
If I signed a deal w/a label and they were like, "You can't come out," I would be like, "Fuck off." She should come out if it's true.

on that lesbian reality show candy bar girls this one girl who looks so much like jessie j i pretty much convinced my friend it was her and she just text me: "maybe it was jessie j on candy bar girls"
baileysmama01 19th-Apr-2012 11:31 am (UTC)
So, she's doing British version of THe Voice? Who else is on that anybody know?
ofmortallove 19th-Apr-2012 11:32 am (UTC)
will.iam, that guy from the script and tom jones.
baileysmama01 19th-Apr-2012 11:34 am (UTC)
Sounds like most boring version imo.
lovedhurtlost 19th-Apr-2012 01:26 pm (UTC)
I love the script. Now I want to watch, tbh.

...Oh, I always thought she identified as a lesbian from the get go. People suck.
swissbeauty23 19th-Apr-2012 11:56 am (UTC)
That's fucked up.

Homosexuals and women are treated as some of the lowest of the low in fucking Hollywood.

gorlplz 19th-Apr-2012 03:12 pm (UTC)
basically

and at the same time straight women are pushed to emulate bisexuality to reach a bigger audience

what type of mess!??
allgoodtonight 19th-Apr-2012 11:57 am (UTC)
if the only reason she hasn't come out (fully, anyway) is for the sake of her career, she ought to rethink that. what she has going on doesn't seem to be worth that kind of frustration and misery.
teetersslow 19th-Apr-2012 12:04 pm (UTC)
i would go lesbian for jessie j tbh she's the only girl i've ever properly considered it with lol ideky
ofmortallove 19th-Apr-2012 12:10 pm (UTC)
me too.she is unf.
scheisse 19th-Apr-2012 12:24 pm (UTC)
Yuck, I hate that saying. You can't "go gay".

Why not just say, "I would totally have sexual relations with Jessie J?" Fucking her doesn't magically make you a lesbian.

Her image seems so try hard. They didn't do a good job marketing her.

Lesbian euphemisms are the best. Carpet muncher, muff diver, scissor sister, what classics.

Certain people thought being bi was trendy, exotic and a fashion statement

what the fuck. that's why it's hard for some people who actually are bi to say it, because of shit like that
