It’s never easy coming out to family and friends, but just imagine coming out to the entire world. Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui explains why she was advised to keep her sexuality to herself in an interview with Out Magazine, stating the initial reason being QUOTE, “A lot of artists are held back by the notion that they’ll lose their fan base or alienate themselves.”
Lauren first came out to the public as bisexual in a letter she wrote to President Trump back in 2016, but was even advised by the people closest to her not to come out. She said QUOTE, “Even friends and family would tell me to keep it to myself. But the more I thought about it, the more I was like, ‘Why?’”
But although it seems like her fanbase, for the most part, commended her for being so open about her sexuality, and possibly even respect her more, she revealed that she still gets criticized for it. She said, “People still talk shit. But it’s like, ‘Why does it make you feel gross? You can watch a kid get bombed and not do anything about it, but you can’t watch me kiss my girlfriend?’ Go fuck yourself.”
But even Lauren feels uncomfortable labeling herself as ‘bisexual’ as she’d rather be labeled as nothing more than a ‘free-spirit’. And when asked about the duet she did with Halsey called “Strangers”, Lauren recalled Halsey’s text to her asking her to switch the pronouns from ‘he’ to ‘she’, to which Lauren said she was thinking the same thing.
She opened up more about the song and its importance, saying, “To me the song is culturally valuable because people are feeling so invalidated and distant from themselves, like they should be ashamed of who they are. It’s good to be an anarchist and just love yourself. That’s the most rebellious thing you can do right now.”
Well I couldn’t have said it better myself, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who gives Lauren major respect for being so open in a world that still seems to reprimand people for doing so.
