Yungblud, the 22-year-old British singer romantically linked with Halsey, gave a new interview to Attitude describing his disinterest in following more traditional norms concerning gender and sexuality.
While he told the magazine that he’s “more straight,” he added that if “I walked down the street and met a (expletive) bloke tomorrow, or a trans person, you never know. It’s about connection. I’m very fluid about it.”
He continued: “I wake up one day and want to look girly as (expletive), and I’ll wake up the next and walk out of the house in a Fred Perry polo shirt looking like I’ll beat the (expletive) of out you. I’ll be Anita from ‘West Side Story’ then suddenly transform into Liam Gallagher.”
The singer – whose real name is Dominic Richard Harrison – released his debut album, “21st Century Liability,” last summer, and is currently playing festivals across Europe before embarking on a solo world tour this fall.
He told Attitude that he first moved to London from his South Yorkshire hometown “to be liberated, to be able to paint my nails, to (expletive) try sex with a guy, to try everything, to fulfill my fantasies and figure out who I am. Ultimately, it was a massive journey to being comfortable in myself.”
“I (still) have to get talked off the ledge 10 times a day, but I know who I am now,” he added.
