Bisexual singer says he’s sexually attracted to women but understands ‘Bi now, gay later’ – oh, and Eurovision was a good idea
Duncan James has ripped off his shirt, polished his tattoos and practiced posing with his hands down his pants in the latest issue of Gay Times.
The boy-bander – whose man garden is visible in the shots – said: “I still enjoy having sex with girls. I find women attractive.
“But over the years it’s been less and less relationships with girls. So I understand that saying, ‘Bi now, gay later.’ But it’s 2012 and there’s nothing wrong in being open with your sexuality.”
Talking about getting out of a recent two-year gay relationship, he said: “I was in love and it broke my heart. I really wanted it to work but it didn’t and sometimes you just have to let go.
“We had an amazing time together but he’s going through something similar to like I did. He’s about to have a kid so I can relate to that… it’s quite strange how the tide has turned.
“The first guy I was in a relationship with really loved me and I hurt him so it’s like karma has bit me, because I’m now in his position.”
Speaking about the reincarnation of Blue, he said: “Take That did the most amazing comeback ever but it’s gone a bit quiet for them and JLS are taking a break.
“One Direction and The Wanted are doing massively well in the US. But there aren’t a lot of boybands around in the UK right now, so we think there’s a big gap and it’s a great time for us to come back.”
But they still want to be a bit grubby, he says. “There’s a bit of sex in there… we’ve never been a clean-cut boy band and we’ve always been a bit naughty. We were never like Westlife and we got away with being a bit more rock ’n’ roll, or pop ’n’ roll as we call it.”
As for appearing and bombing on spangle-fest Eurovision in 2011, he said: “It was a good thing for us in Europe but a bad thing for us in the UK.
“But we wanted to mark our tenth anniversary with something special and representing your country in the biggest music show in the world was pretty special.
“But on the back of Eurovision we didn’t even have a second single or album.
“It was like a big whoopie cusion that deflated.”
He’s right. The song honked.
