Singer Yungblud is once again opening up about his sexuality. In a candid new interview with the Evening Standard, he says he’s done just about everything when it comes to sex.
“I tried everything,” the 22-year-old says. “In terms of sexuality, in terms of drugs, I liberated myself, rather dangerously to be honest — recklessly. I wanted to figure myself out so bad I didn’t care. I always say to young people, it was a distraction.”
The singer goes on to explain he considers himself “more straight” but “boxes are so irrelevant in terms of sexual identity.”
“A lot of people just feel how they feel,” he says.

“ we are a generation of metaphors, of art, and pictures and visuals — instead of things just being surface level, instead of words. we thrive off what we feel not just what we think. we are not not going to tiptoe around what clothes, shoes or fucking lipstick we wear, we are not going to tiptoe around what’s politically correct. we are who we are , we are what we are gonna be and that’s that. full fuckin stop. underlined “ ??? – massive love to @eveningstandardmagazine for making me ur cover ?
In an interview with Attitude magazine last year, Yungblud said he’s “very fluid” with his sexuality.
“I am more straight,” he said. “[But if] I walked down the street and met a f*cking bloke tomorrow, or a trans person, you never know. … It’s about connection. I’m very fluid about it.”
The singer also said he originally moved to London from the town of Doncaster “to be liberated, to be able to paint my nails, to f*cking try sex with a guy, to try everything, to fulfill my fantasies and figure out who I am.”
