British singer-songwriter Paloma Faith
says she's a gay man trapped in a woman's body.
Faith released A
Perfect Contradiction, her third studio album, in March. A
Perfect Contradiction: Outsiders' Edition arrives next month with
four additional songs.
In an interview with UK gay glossy
Attitude, Faith said that she believes it's more taboo for men
to identify as bisexual than it is for women.
“I'm a gay man trapped in a woman's
said. “I also think most women are bisexual. I think it's
maybe less so for men, because socially it's more taboo, there's more
pressure on a man. So it's a big deal, a big decision to come out.”
“I think with women, it's every
heterosexual man's biggest fantasy to see two women get together, so
it's a bit more acceptable. Also the other thing I was talking to
someone about recently is how everybody's first sexual experience is
with a woman, because we were sucking on our mother's nipples!”
