Jess Glynne: My sexuality is no big deal

JESS Glynne says her sexuality is no big deal.

The 26-year-old singer has had relationships with men and women and came out as bisexual last year when she revealed a failed lesbian relationship was the inspiration for many of the songs on her debut album 'I Cry When I Laugh'.

However, Jess doesn't want a label to be put on her sexuality and insists people shouldn't care what is happening in her private life.

In an interview with Fabulous magazine, she said: "For me it's not even a thing, I just get on with it and I am what I am and I just don't think it's a big thing.

"I think the more you make of something, the more it becomes a thing and these days, people don't really care. I don't see why they should care.

"My family and my friends are all really cool and I never have to justify who I am to anybody. I'm content with whoever it is that I choose to be with. Be that a man or a woman. Whatever. That's exactly how my family and friends take anything, that's how they are. So we're all the same."

Jess was recently linked to her backing singer Holly Petrie after they were spotted getting close at a BRIT Awards after-party but insisted that they are just friends.

The 'Hold My Hand' hitmaker said: "Holly is my backing singer, that's all she is. Me and my band have a great relationship and we all get wild when we want to get wild and we'll all dance with each other and have fun. That's as far as it goes."
