‘I’ve never believed in labels’

Jess, who has dated men and women in the past, recently opened up about her sexuality in an interview with The Sun.

‘I’ve learned that accepting whether I’m saying yes or no, that’s OK. Whether I’m right or wrong, that’s OK. Whether I love him or her, that’s OK.’

She furthermore added: ‘I’ve never believed in labels. I don’t label myself as anything in love, in what I eat, in anything.’

Elsewhere in the interview, she said of her new albums title: ‘That’s why the name of the album resonates – I’m always in between. People do try to constrict you in life, and it’s really beautiful to feel you’re not in any sort of box.’

Speaking about the upcoming tour, Scary Spice Mel B (who has also spoken openly about her relationships with women in the past) said: ‘I’ve said it sooo many times I’m beside myself it’s actually happening. I’m now properly screaming it from every rooftop – me and my girls will see you all on stage!’
