La Roux singer Elly Jackson says she finds men and women attractive and has crushes on Beyonce Knowles and Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal.''
La Roux singer Elly Jackson has a crush on Beyonce Knowles.
The pop star - who is rumoured to be a lesbian or bisexual - thinks the 'Halo' singer is stunningly attractive, but insists she finds both men and women sexy.
She said: "I can appreciate other women. Beyonce is beautiful. But I find men or women sexy. The Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal is hot and I've always fancied James Dean - but weirdly, I want to look like the people I fancy."
Elly, 21, is aware of the speculation surrounding her sexuality but refuses to speak about her private life just so people can label her.
The singer - who is joined in La Roux by Ben Langmaid - added: "I don't have a sexuality. I don't feel like I'm female or male. I don't belong to the gay or straight society, if there is such a thing. I feel like I'm capable of falling in love with other people. I'm not saying I'm bisexual, I'm just sexual!"
Elly has always been a tomboy and preferred to wear boys' clothes than girls' outfits when she was growing up.
The star told Fabulous magazine: "I felt very out of sorts at school. I was a tomboy and didn't dress like a girl. I wanted to hang out with the boys and got picked on because I was different. It was constant abuse. I tried to be more girlie but I ended up losing myself."
