American singer Pink has denied being bisexual after a tabloid reported she had come out.

The star, whose real name is Alecia Moore, was quoted by the News of the World as saying: “I’m not embarrassed about being bisexual. This is who I am.”

She was said to have added: “Love is pure and I try to keep it that way.

“I think it’s unnecessary to draw the subject out, but I think it even more stupid not to discuss it.

“It seems as if bisexuality is a trend and I should whip up the masses. Well, I don’t believe in trends, I just believe in me.”

However, she has since denied the statements, claiming the newspaper made the quotes up.

In a video interview with celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, she said: “As much as I stand up for gay rights. I marched with the Prop 8 thing. If I were gay do you think I would have a problem coming out? There’s nothing wrong with being gay. There’s nothing wrong with being bi.

“I would be waving my f—–g flag all over the place but it’s not my truth. So I have to defend my truth.

“Didn’t we already burn our f—–g bra? I mean, does the whole world have one idea about what a woman is? If I’m too strong, I’m to masculine, I’m not a damsel, my hair’s not long enough, my skirt’s not short enough…so I have to be some f—–g…something other than what I am?”

The singer also scolded Perez for reporting the quotes, saying: “Take that s–t off your f—–g website.”
