Jahmene Douglas would be uncomfortable singing Madonna hit 'Like A Virgin' because he himself has never had sex
Jahmene Douglas would never sing 'Like A Virgin' on 'X Factor' because he'd be uncomfortable with the lyrics.
The 21-year-old singer - who wears a purity ring - would be unhappy to perform the Madonna classic because he himself is still a virgin, and the words would not suit him.
He told BANG Showbiz: "It's all about soul with me. I wouldn't sing 'Like A Virgin' because I'd have to say, 'I am a virgin,' in the song. I'd sing it that way instead. That's the only thing I think. I wouldn't sing anything that was degrading to women or had swearing in it. I can't see why that's allowed in the charts, for children."
However, he is not against trying out new things, and would be happy to dance with a Janet Jackson-inspired routine.
He added: "I want to dance at some point, get a Janet Jackson routine in there."
Despite being considered one of the most eligible men in the competition, Jahmene admits he is not paying any attention to women throwing themselves at him as he rarely notices anyway.
He added: "I think a lot of female attention goes over my head. I don't find myself worthy enough for it. I'm waiting for the one. That's why I'm wearing my purity ring. I'm not married."
