You may remember that last year, there was a big kerfuffle about an Instagram post made by Lily-Rose Depp which appeared to be her coming out.
However, some time after all this blew up, Lily has spoken to Nylon magazine about her involvement in a photography project which features people who aren’t “100% straight”.
But in her comments to the magazine, Lily has said that she never intended it to be a “coming out”.
Lily went on to say: “That was really misconstrued, that whole thing. A lot of people took it as me coming out, but that’s not what I was trying to do. I was literally doing it to say that you don’t have to label your sexuality.”
“I was just trying to say that it’s unnecessary; you don’t need to label yourself. I guess it came off the wrong way, because then everyone labelled me as gay. That’s not what I was trying to say. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course! But I did that literally just to say you don’t have to label yourself, and everyone like like, Lily-Rose Depp comes out as gay!”
“I’m saying it doesn’t matter! It’s not anybody’s business, because I am going to date whoever I’m going to date. I was just saying, kids don’t need to label their sexualities. It’s not that big of a deal. People have completely different beliefs, different mindsets than they had 30 years ago-and they will have different mindsets and beliefs 30 years from now. I think life goes on, people progress and evolve, and that kind of thinking changes.”
This is far from a one off thing, as well. Just recently we saw an example of this, when Union J member George Shelley spoke out on his sexuality but didn’t want to be labelled. Want to take a guess as to what happened?
