Eilish nonchalantly discussed her sexuality in a cover story for Variety, which was published in November 2023.

Eilish described herself as "physically attracted" to women, adding, "I'm attracted to them for real."

The Grammy-winning singer did not use a specific label to identify her sexuality. Shortly after, Eilish attended the Variety Hitmakers event, where she was interviewed on the red carpet.

After describing women as "pretty," the interviewer asked if Eilish intended to "come out" with her cover story.

"No, I didn't," Eilish said with a laugh. "But I kinda thought, wasn't it obvious? Like it's kinda been... I didn't realize people didn't know."

"I just don't really believe in it," she added, referring to the concept of "coming out." "Why can't we just exist? I've been doing this for a long time and I just didn't talk about it."

She later clarified on Instagram: "I like boys and girls leave me alone about it please literally who cares."

Eilish, who has publicly dated rapper 7: AMP and rocker Jesse Rutherford, sings explicitly about her attraction to women in "Lunch," the lead single from her third studio album, "Hit Me Hard and Soft."

Ice Spice included a nod to queerness in her hit song "Bikini Bottom."

In her 2022 single "Bikini Bottom," which became a runaway smash on TikTok, Ice Spice included a line about being attracted to both men and women.

"I like n-----, bitches too," she raps in the second verse. "Ayo, baddie, what it do?"

In a video for Genius explaining the lyrics, the Bronx rapper said this was very intentional.

"So I was just like, they need to know. We're here and we're queer," she said. "So, period."

Just a few months later, Ice Spice was tapped to feature on Taylor Swift's "Karma," in which she sprinkled similar winks about her sexuality.

Next to Swift's lyrics like "Karma is my boyfriend," Ice Spice raps, "Karma is that girl" and "Karma is a fire in your house / And she 'bout to pop up unannounced."

Phoebe Bridgers is bisexual.

As one-third of the supergroup boygenius, Phoebe Bridgers opened up to Vogue UK about what it means to be a visibly queer band during a surge of anti-LGBTQ legislation.

"I'm so proud of our group dynamic, and as a bisexual woman in straight relationships, it feels weird to talk about it so much," Bridgers said.

"That said, I wish there were more types of queer people visible to me when I was growing up, and when it comes to our band and our shared dynamic, I have no shame about stepping forward and being like, 'This is what we look like and how we feel and what we believe in,'" she continued.

In the past, she was romantically linked to voice actor Emily Bannon, who apparently inspired the boygenius song "Emily I'm Sorry." Bridgers is currently dating the comedian Bo Burnham.

Lucy Dacus said she prefers "queer" as a "catch-all term."

Dacus publicly identified herself as queer during a 2016 interview with NPR.

In 2021, the "Night Shift" singer wrote an essay for Oprah Daily, in which she reflected on that experience and grappled with the concept of "coming out."

"My mom called me after she read it, concerned, because she still saw the word 'queer' as a slur," she wrote. "I told her what it means to me, why I like it as a catch-all term, how it feels like saying not straight and none of your business."

"For some members of my family, this essay may be me coming out to them, if they read it. I've heard that coming out never ends, which sounds exhausting," Dacus continued. "Maybe I instinctively understood that coming out would never end and the fear of exhaustion is what kept me from beginning for so long. But there is also the exhaustion of ignoring yourself."

That same month, Dacus discussed the various labels for her sexuality with The New York Times.

"Gay is the overarching word, queer is the better overarching word and more specifically bisexual or pansexual," she said. "I have no allegiance. I think gender is a joke."

Halsey actively fights against bisexual erasure.

Halsey, who is currently dating actor Avan Jogia, has written several songs about her relationships and trysts with women, such as "Strangers," "Bad At Love," "Wipe Your Tears," and "Honey."

"I'm a young, bisexual woman, and I've spent a large part of my life trying to validate myself — to my friends, to my family, to myself — trying to prove that who I love and how I feel is not a phase; it's not part of some confusion that's going to change or could be manipulated," the Grammy-nominated singer said while accepting the GLAAD award for Outstanding Musician in 2018.

Aubrey Plaza said she could fall in love with anyone.

The "White Lotus" star spoke about her fluid sexuality during a 2016 interview with The Advocate.

"I know I have an androgynous thing going on, and there's something masculine about my energy," Plaza said, when asked if women ever flirt with her.

"Girls are into me — that's no secret. Hey, I'm into them too. I fall in love with girls and guys. I can't help it."

All three members of MUNA identify as queer.

The three members of MUNA, Katie Gavin, Josette Maskin, and Naomi McPherson, have long been advocates for the LGBTQ+ community.

The pop band makes explicitly gay music, from the cult-favorite anthem "I Know a Place" to the 2022 bop "What I Want" ("I want the fireworks / I want the chemistry / I want that girl right over there to wanna date me / That's what I want, there's nothing wrong with what I want").

Gavin, MUNA's lead singer and songwriter, described the latter song as "a second adolescence; a surge that comes with that certainty."

"And then you want to make up for lost time," McPherson said in their interview with Vice, while Maskin added, "That's just the queer experience, isn't it?"

In 2023, Gavin wrote a love letter to the LGBTQ+ community for Billboard's ongoing series.

"My love for us spills into all the different corners and crevices of the city under our colorful canopy," Gavin wrote. "One of the things I'm most thankful for about being queer is that it liberated me from fulfilling others' expectations of me, and forced me to focus on what gives me joy."

Cardi B opened up about her bisexuality when she was accused of "queerbaiting."

The Grammy-winning rapper hit back at accusations of "queerbaiting" after she released a sensual music video with Normani for their 2021 single "Wild Side."

"I'm married to a man but I have [expressed] soo much about my bisexuality and my experiences wit girls," she wrote on Twitter, referring to her on-and-off relationship with Offset.

"I don't like this new 'queer baiting' word," she continued, arguing that it pressures celebrities to show proof of their sexual experiences if they express queer themes in their art.

Janelle Monáe first identified as bisexual, but has since come out as pansexual.

"Being a queer black woman in America, someone who has been in relationships with both men and women — I consider myself to be a free-ass motherfucker," Monáe said in a 2018 interview with Rolling Stone.

As the article makes clear, Monáe first identified as bisexual. "But then later I read about pansexuality and was like, 'Oh, these are things that I identify with too,'" Monae said. "I'm open to learning more about who I am."

Monáe, who also identifies as nonbinary, frequently explores queer themes in her music, as with her 2018 single "Pynk."

Tinashe identifies as bisexual.

The "Nasty" singer discussed her bisexuality in a 2020 cover story for Gay Times.

"I tend to shy away from terms — I guess this is the theme of my life! — that make people want to categorize me or put me in a box," Tinashe said. "I don't like that shit. But I can still give you a general sense of yeah, I'm bisexual. I'm somewhere on the spectrum."

"It's not like all bisexual people like men and women equally, or like all bisexual people are a certain type of person," she continued. "Human beings are so versatile. I don't understand why we're so obsessed with categorizing each other."

Victoria Monét came out as bisexual in 2018.

Shortly after the release of Ariana Grande's hit single "Thank U, Next," which Monét cowrote, she clarified her sexuality on Twitter.

"I want everyone to know that I'm single (since people wanna pretend I'm not) and make imaginary rules for me," she wrote. "I secretly and respectfully went through a difficult break up this summer but enough is enough."

"I also like girls. Thank U, Next. Bye," Monét added,

The "Jaguar" singer later described her coming out experience as "a buttercup version because I was really lucky."

"It should feel more warm for everybody," she told Billboard. "I think we should make people more comfortable."

Today, Angèle openly identifies as bisexual, but the Belgian pop sensation didn't have a chance to tell her family before she was outed by the French press.

"If I had said to my parents: I think I like girls, then it would have been fine, but I didn't warn them, so it was a shock for them," she told The Guardian. "I think I always knew even when I was young, but when I was 15 and at school it really wasn't cool to be bisexual. It was even a bit shameful."

Baby Queen told BI that she's bisexual, but isn't attached to any particular label.

Baby Queen wrote her breakout hit "Want Me" about having a crush on "Killing Eve" star Jodie Comer.

Asked about this inspiration in 2021, the singer-songwriter told Business Insider that she's still exploring her sexuality.

"I'm going to be honest. I don't know," she said. "I'm fine for other people to know that I don't know, because I don't think anyone knows. I'd say, like, bisexual — but also, I just don't know. I feel like I need to figure it out. I need to go speed dating."

During a subsequent interview with BI in 2022, Baby Queen revealed that she is open to dating people of all genders, though she hasn't had much luck using apps like Raya.

"It's horrific," she joked. "All the guys are looking for blonde influencer girls... I don't fit into that. And all the girls are looking for rich football players. No one has matched with me."

Kit Connor came out as bisexual after saying he's "not too big on labels."

Connor, who stars as the bisexual character Nick Nelson on Netflix's "Heartstopper," addressed the speculation about his sexuality during an appearance on the "Reign With Josh Smith" podcast.

"I mean, for me, I feel like I'm perfectly confident and comfortable with my sexuality," he said. "I'm not too big on labels and things like that. I'm not massive about that, and I don't feel like I need to label myself, especially publicly."

After fans of the show accused the actor of queerbaiting, he clarified his sexuality in a since-deleted tweet.

"I'm bi," he wrote. "Congrats for forcing an 18-year-old to out himself. I think some of you missed the point of the show. Bye."

Dove Cameron said she's "super queer."

In a 2021 interview with the Gay Times, Dove Cameron said it felt important to speak candidly with fans about her sexuality.

"I've hinted about my sexuality for years while being afraid to spell it out for everybody," she said.

"I went on Instagram Live and said 'Guys, I really needed to explain something to you. Maybe I haven't said it, but I'm super queer," she continued. "This is something I want to represent through my music because it's who I am."

Cameron has released songs with female pronouns and queer storylines, including the 2022 hit "Boyfriend."

"I wasn't ever afraid of people knowing who I loved," she explained to E! News. "More so, I was afraid of people having access to the human parts of me in an industry that can be so anti-human. That was definitely an emotional thing, but it turned out to be the best thing that could have ever happened to me. Mentally, I'm so much better now."

Bebe Rexha said she's open to dating "whoever inspires" her.

Bebe Rexha opened up about her fluid sexuality in a 2021 interview with Gay Times, saying she's attracted to "whoever inspires me."

"What I believe about sexuality is this: it's a scale," she said, adding that she considers herself "fluid."

"Until I find 'the one,' I can't just say what I am. I just want to find someone I love and who loves me – and I don't care if that's a boy or a girl," she said.

Rexha, who recently dated filmmaker Keyan Safyari, added that she has fallen in love with women in the past.

Lovato, who initially came out as bisexual to their parents in 2017, said they now identify as pansexual during an episode of Joe Rogan's podcast.

"I'm so fluid now, and a part of the reason why I am so fluid is because I was, like, super closeted off," Lovato said. When Rogan asked whether they like women or men, Lovato replied: "Yeah, anything, really."

Lovato, who identifies as nonbinary, has also said she feels "too queer" to be involved with cisgender men going forward.

"This past year I was engaged to a man, and when it didn't work, I was like, 'This is a huge sign.' I thought I was going to spend my life with someone. Now that I wasn't going to, I felt this sense of relief that I could live my truth," Lovato said after calling off their engagement with Max Ehrich after two months.

The following year, Megan described herself as "a free agent on the ladies side" during an Instagram Live. "I'm looking for a new girlfriend if anybody trying to be a hot girl," she added.

During a 2022 conversation with Yung Miami, Megan referenced having sex with women: "Girls are so sensual. Yeah, I feel like we know how to like, please each other." (She also offered to "top" Miami in a cheeky exchange.)

The Houston rapper, who has performed at several Pride events, publicly dated Pardison Fontaine for three years before they split in 2023.

In an interview with GQ, Schafer confirmed she dated Rosalía for about five months in 2019, describing her as "family no matter what."

"I have really beautiful friendships with people that I was once romantically involved with," Schafer said. "It's been so much speculation for so long. Part of us just wants to get it over with, and then another part is like, 'It's none of anybody's fucking business!'

She added, "It's something I'm happy to share. And I think she feels that way too."

In 2021, Schafer wrote on Twitter that she is "bi or pan or something."

Frank Ocean's song "Chanel" has been widely interpreted as a "bisexual anthem."

Ocean famously shared an open letter about his sexuality mere days before his debut album, 2012's "Channel Orange," was set to drop.

"4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too," he wrote on Tumblr. "By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping, no negotiating with the feeling. No choice. It was my first love. It changed my life."

That same year, Ocean declined to label himself bisexual in an interview with GQ.

"I'll respectfully say that life is dynamic and comes along with dynamic experiences, and the same sentiment that I have towards genres of music, I have towards a lot of labels and boxes and shit," he said.

Many songs on "Channel Orange," as well his 2016 sophomore album "Blonde," see Ocean using male pronouns to address his lovers. However, many more of his lyrics illustrate attraction to women.

Ocean's 2017 single "Chanel" is widely interpreted as an allegory for bisexuality: "My guy pretty like a girl / And he got fight stories to tell / I see both sides like Chanel / C on both sides like Chanel," he sings in the hook.

Miley Cyrus identifies as pansexual.

"I'm very open about it — I'm pansexual," Cyrus told Elle magazine in 2015.

In subsequent years, Cyrus has spoken openly about her fluid approach to gender and sexuality.

"A big part of my pride and my identity is being a queer person," she told Vanity Fair. "What I preach is: People fall in love with people, not gender, not looks, not whatever. What I'm in love with exists on almost a spiritual level. It has nothing to do with sexuality."

"Relationships and partnerships in a new generation — I don't think they have so much to do with sexuality or gender," she continued. "Sex is actually a small part, and gender is a very small, almost irrelevant part of relationships."

Anitta publicly came out as bisexual in her 2018 Netflix docuseries, "Vai Anitta."

In a 2022 interview with the Los Angeles Times, the Brazilian hitmaker said she came out to her family long before the docuseries premiered.

"I kissed a girl before I kissed a guy," she said. "I only told my mom after I kissed a guy, because... I didn't know how to feel. I thought there was something wrong with me for wanting to kiss a guy and a girl. But my mom just said, 'So what?'"

"My family never had an issue, but everyone else needed an answer about it," she continued. "So I said, 'I don't want to be hiding.' If I go to the club and I want to kiss a girl, I don't want to be scared of people seeing me and freaking out."

Jameela Jamil came out as queer on Twitter.

Jamil clarified her sexuality after receiving backlash for her role on HBO Max's voguing competition series, "Legendary."

The "She Hulk" actor and body-positivity advocate shared a statement, captured in screenshots of notes she had typed out on her phone. The tweet has since been deleted.

"Twitter is brutal," Jamil wrote. "This is why I never officially came out as queer. I added a rainbow to my name when I felt ready a few years ago, as it's not easy within the south Asian community to be accepted, and I always answered honestly if ever straight-up asked about it on Twitter."

"But I kept it low because I was scared of the pain of being accused of performative bandwagon jumping, over something that caused me a lot of confusion, fear, and turmoil when I was a kid," the statement read.

Tayla Parx is bisexual.

Parx is currently in a relationship with a woman, but told BI that she prefers to write songs without gender-specific pronouns.

"I've always been a fan of keeping things gender neutral, honestly," she said," because of the fact that I'm bi, so sometimes my song is about a boy, sometimes it's about a girl."

"I really like keeping it inclusive," Parx continued. "I really love when somebody can come up to me and say, 'I went through this with my partner,' whoever that partner is — whether it's a him or her, or whatever their pronoun is."

When asked about potentially being part of a "throuple" (a relationship between three people), Smith said she could see herself being with a man and woman at the same time.

"I love men and women equally and so I would definitely want one man, one woman," Smith said on her mom's show "Red Table Talk." "I feel like I could be polyfidelitous with those two people."

"Broad City" star Abbi Jacobson has dated both men and women.

In the final season of her beloved comedy show "Broad City," Jacobson's character (also named Abbi) explored her evolving sexuality by dating a woman for the first time.

The storyline paralleled Jacobson's own journey. In 2018, she told Vanity Fair that she had dated both men and women.

Jacobson went on to portray Carson Shaw, a female baseball player coming to terms with her queerness, in Amazon Prime's 2022 series "A League of Their Own." The show took a fresh, LGBTQ-forward approach to the 1992 film of the same name.

"I can resonate with it because it's very much my story," Jacobson told Them. "I came into my sexuality super late, though you can come out even if you're way older than I was."

Jacobson married actor Jodi Balfour in 2024 after dating for three years.

In an interview with Paper magazine, Wolf described the closing track "Shawty" as an "honest song about being a queer artist and having duplicity in what it meant to write music about a casual, yet fun relationship with a woman."

Tove Lo has sung about ill-fated relationships with men, like her famous smash hit "Habits (Stay High)," and with women, like her 2019 Alma collaboration "Bad as the Boys."

"For me, sexuality is a fluid thing and it's hard to be just the one way," she told NME in 2019. "But maybe that's just because I like both."

Megan Fox publicly came out as bisexual in 2009.

The "Jennifer's Body" actress first opened up about her sexuality in 2008, when she revealed that she'd had a crush on a woman.

"I just think that all humans are born with the ability to be attracted to both sexes," she told GQ. "I mean, I could see myself in a relationship with a girl."

The following year, Fox elaborated in a cover story for Esquire.

"I think people are born bisexual and they make subconscious choices based on the pressures of society," she said. "I have no question in my mind about being bisexual."

Brendon Urie said being married to a woman doesn't negate his pansexuality.

The Panic! at the Disco frontman opened up about his sexuality in a 2018 interview with Paper magazine.

"I'm married to a woman and I'm very much in love with her but I'm not opposed to a man because to me, I like a person," he said.

"Yeah, I guess you could qualify me as pansexual because I really don't care. If a person is great, then a person is great. I just like good people, if your heart's in the right place. I'm definitely attracted to men. It's just people that I am attracted to."

Singer-songwriter mxmtoon said her bisexuality informs her music.

The "Prom Dress" singer told BI that many of her love songs are gender-neutral by design.

"There's not enough songs in the world where people can listen to it, and it doesn't have any sort of gender to it, and it doesn't say like, 'Boy-oy-oy,'" she said.

"So I think that it's nice for me to be able to think about that, because heck, who knows what could happen in the future? Maybe I'll like someone else. I just think songs should exist for anyone."

YUNGBLUD said he has a "very fluid" approach to sexuality.

YUNGBLUD, real name Dominic Harrison, appeared on the cover of Attitude magazine's September 2019 issue.

"I am more straight," he said in the cover story. "[But if] I walked down the street and met a fucking bloke tomorrow, or a trans person, you never know. It's about connection. I'm very fluid about it."

"If I fell in love with a trans person, it's just the way it is. It's on a deeper level. It doesn't matter what you've got. It's not about having a dick or a pussy."

"Gender and sexuality are so fluid. It's OK to change your mind a million times and figure out what works for you. It's OK to take your time," Stenberg told Seventeen magazine in 2018.

"I love that we have this umbrella term of 'queer,' and so many things can exist underneath it, but I realized that part of my journey was hiding underneath that umbrella, because I was scared — on a personal and a public level — to confront what I was," Stenberg continued.

"It was easier for me to say 'I'm bi' or "I'm pan' as I was figuring it out. But I came to a place where I felt really proud of my sexuality, and I decided I wanted to share that pride."

"I prefer 'queer,'" Wood wrote on Twitter. "Bisexual works too except I don't exclude transgender people. This is why labels are tricky."

That was the case through high school, and I think I was always aware that while for the most part I was attracted to women, I existed on a spectrum."

"I mean, it's hard to talk about," Stewart said. "I don't want to seem presumptuous, because everyone has their own experience. The whole issue of sexuality is so grey. I'm just trying to acknowledge that fluidity, that greyness, which has always existed. But maybe only now are we allowed to start talking about it."

"I'm not here to change people's minds about whether they believe in bisexuality," it reads. "All I'm saying is that I think my sexuality and most people's sexuality is gray. I am married to a man. I have a healthy sexual appetite and a healthy imagination. I also have an attraction to women. I've never lost it, actually."

"I think I've always been bisexual," Armstrong said in a 1995 interview with The Advocate.

"I mean, it's something that I've always been interested in. I think people are born bisexual, and it's just that our parents and society kind of veer us off into this feeling of 'Oh, I can't.' They say it's taboo. It's ingrained in our heads that it's bad, when it's not bad at all. It's a very beautiful thing."

"A lot of the friends I have who are straight have such an old way of thinking," Delevingne said in an interview for Glamour. "It's 'So you're just gay, right?' [They] don't understand it. [If] I'm like, 'Oh, I really like this guy,' [they're like], 'But you're gay.' I'm like, 'No, you're so annoying!'"

"Because of the intersections that exist in my own life: woman, multi-racial woman, woman of color, queer, bisexual, Mexican-Irish American, immigrant, and raised by families heavily rooted in Catholicism on both my Mexican and Irish sides, I am deeply invested in projects that allow our youth's voices to be heard."

Ramirez has since come out as nonbinary.

Cho said in a 2018 interview with Huffington Post that she's not sure if bisexual is necessarily the right word, "because that indicates that there's only two genders, and I don't believe that."

"I've been with people all across the spectrum of gender and who have all kinds of different expressions of gender, so it's so hard to say," she continued. "Maybe 'pansexual' is technically the more correct term but I like 'bisexual' because it's kind of '70s. [Laughs] There's something very chic about that word and I guess that's probably the right one for me."

"There are plenty of letters in the alphabet... Why bother rushing to a conclusion? Sometimes your letter changes, sometimes you try a different one, other times you realize you're not what you thought you were, or maybe you always knew," he explained. "All of these can be true. I'm happy to be a part of the LGBTQ+ community because they embrace all. Don't let anyone tell you love isn't love. They're the ones who probably need it the most."

I really like that."

"I don't identify as anything," Heard told Allure in 2017. "I'm a person. I like who I like. I happened to be dating a woman, and people started taking pictures of us walking to our car after dinner. I [was] holding her hand, and I realized that I have two options: I can let go of her hand and, when asked about it, I can say that my private life is my private life. Or I could not let go and own it."

It was when Heard decided to "own it" back in 2010 that the bisexual label first came into play, though she's since decided against using the term.

"It's limiting, that LGBTQ thing," she told Allure. "It served a function as an umbrella for marginalized people to whom rights were being denied, but it loses its efficacy because of the nuanced nature of humanity [...] I don't care how many letters you add. At some point, it's going to spell 'WE ARE HUMAN.'"
