Gay pop star Will Young has revealed he has sent his dick pic ‘to so many people on Grindr’.
The British singer-songwriter has spoken about his single life in a frank interview for the new book Good As You – exploring LGBTI life and history in the UK.
As Young doesn’t like to meet guys in public, he uses dating apps to have sex, date and meet people.
‘Being agoraphobic, clubbing isn’t quite my thing,’ he said. ‘So you go on Grindr’.
‘I’m amazed that, given the amount of people I’ve sent pictures of my cock to, that it’s not become famous, too. Maybe there’s just not enough interest in it?’
He added: ‘I’m partly offended…God knows why it’s not out there somewhere.’
In 2012 Will was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder, depression and spent six months at Khiron House – a trauma center in Oxfordshire. He’s also opened up about his past porn and alcohol addiction.
In the book by Paul Flynn, out now, Young reflects on how his career has changed since coming out shortly after winning Pop Idol in 2001.
‘I don’t think I could have sustained a career that long without coming out at the start,’ he said. ‘For one thing, that lie would have sent me loopy. Can you imagine?’
While he has kept a relatively clean-cut image for his large fanbase, he has since explored more of his sexuality in his music.
‘I always said that if there is a kind of people who wouldn’t buy my music because I’m gay, well, I don’t want them buying my music.’
