  1. She doesn’t label her sexuality. It’s disrespectful to refer to her as bi.

    1. Herein lies the problem. She dates women & men, so therefore the preferable label by society is bisexual; and she did say they were uncomfortable at first with her bisexuality.

      1. Do you have a link to her saying “bisexuality”?

  2. Jessie J said in the Alan Carr Show that she is bisexual. It’s on youtube if you wanna view it. She did label it, because that is what she is.

    1. On Alan Carr? She didn’t describe herself as bi – the phrase she used was “bush basher”.

  3. I remember seeing that episode too.

  4. Bisexual? whatever! Aint never seen her with a man. Bisexuality is more acceptable in the pop world than full-on-gay.

    Next you’ll be telling me Duncan from Blue really does date women.

      Nice to see the biphobia’s still around, what with you and the two plonkers who gave you a thumbs up. For a moment there, I was starting to get worried we’d finally been accepted.

      What’s that old mantra? “If they’re dating someone of the same sex then they’re just saying they’re bi because they’re scared to admit they’re gay, if they’re dating someone of the opposite sex then they’re just pretending they’re bi for attention”. That’s the one.

      Funny, I always figured people like me and Jessie J were just bi. I guess now I know better. :p

      1. I hear ya PumpkinPie. The complete lack of understanding of what bi is can be so frustraiting! For years I was scared to tell anyone I was bi because up to that point I’d only had relationships with men.

        Now I’m in 2 relationships (one with a man & the other with a woman) and I’m constantly asked by people if/when I’m going to develop a preference for one or the other. I’m not. I love both, but some people just can’t seem to get their head around that.

      2. The amount of biphobia in the lesbian and gay community never ceases to stagger me. For every one individual who is fine with it, there seems to be two who aren’t. You would have thought that an oppressed minority would know better than to further oppress a minority of their minority, but oh no…

        1. you’d think that but have you never heard the phrase the oppressed becoming the oppressers, seems to be a common theme through history unfortunatly, what should be learnt is often not

    2. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of her with a woman (although I already knew she was bi) so what’s your point she’s not exactly vocal with who she dates for all you know she’s had a string of men.

  5. Ambition and good teeth. What a programme!

  6. Of course bisexuality exists, its been proved. I dated a bisexual man for a number of years but it had to end because he wouldn’t leave his wife and children. He was such a wonderful man too, one of the best affairs I ever had.

    Well, I understand where Jessie is coming from. To digress a bit, she’s obviously been to America where dental care is the best in the world. Just look at some of the American programmes we watch and you’ll see for yourself. My stomach sometimes churns when I see some of our actors with the worst teeth. If they’re not crooked, there are huge gaps between teeth. We’re known for our bad teeth and poor dental hygiene on the other side of the pond.

    Good dental hygiene is a must. Smart woman!

  8. Music executives or executives of anything are uncomfortable with anything, even their new underwear. They should just deal with money, leave the art part to the artist.
