In the world of entertainment, there are openly gay celebrities and then there are those who like to play with both boys and girls. Here’re 8 celebrities who admitted they are bi-sexuals:
This American singer and songwriter have never been in an open relationship with a woman but she admitted that her first big hit “I Kissed a Girl” for which she got the People’s Choice awards for the favorite Pop song was based on her personal experience. At the 2017 Human Rights Campaign Los Angeles Gala, the pop icon opened up about restoring her friendly relations with her strange experiences with her religious upbringing.
“Being this way was synonymous with the word ‘abomination’ […] Truth be told, I did more than that!” she said this in the reference to her iconic 2008 hit. She continued, “But how was I going to reconcile that with the gospel-singing girl raised in youth groups that were pro conversion camps?”
She went on to add, “What I did know was that I was curious, and even then I knew that preference was not as black and white as this dress. But in 2008, when that song came out, I knew that it started a conversation that a lot of the world seemed curious enough to sing along to it.”
She is one of the hottest women on the planet and you might be shocked to know that she considers herself Bi. According to her, everyone is born like that.
“I think people are born bi and then make subconscious choices based on the pressures of society. I have no question in my mind about being bi.”
In an interview with Esquire magazine, she also said,
“I have no question in my mind about being bi.” But she also added that she would only date a lesbian, and she would never date a female who swung both ways. “I’m also a hypocrite: I would never date a girl who was bi because that means they also sleep with men, and men are so dirty that I’d never want to sleep with a girl who had slept with a man.” Megan was married to Brian Austin Green since 2010 and the couple has three sons together.
Actor James Franco is one of the most talented actors in the industry and he is very particular regarding his attitude. But, his recent interviews tells us that he likes both genders. He has also played the role of gay activists in the movies such as Milk and I Am Michael.
In an interview with Four Two Nine magazine, Franco explained,
“Well, I like to think that I’m gay in my art and straight in my life. Although, I’m also gay in my life up to the point of being intimate, and then you could say I’m straight,” he went on. So I guess it depends on how you define gay. If it means whom you are intimate with, I guess I’m straight.
He went on and discussed how labels regarding attitude or orientation have changed throughout History. “In the twenties and thirties, they used to define it by how you acted and not by whom you slept with,” he said.
“Sailors would f*** guys all the time, but as long as they behaved in masculine ways, they weren’t considered gay.”
The Twilight star who once dated her co-actor Robert Pattinson for years and their relationship crumbled due to her relationship with director Rupert Sanders. However, after saying goodbyes to both the men, she is primarily dating women and currently, she is dating Stella Maxwell.
She once told People magazine, “When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialized, so I didn’t like it. We were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, ‘That’s mine. You’re making my relationship something that it’s not.’ I didn’t like that … But then it changed when I started dating a girl. I was like, ‘Actually, to hide this provides the implication that I’m not down with it or I’m ashamed of it,’ so I had to alter how I approached being in public. It opened my life up and I’m so much happier.”

Green Day’s Lead singer has been very much clear about his orientation since the ‘90s. In an interview with The Advocate in 1995, he said “I think I’ve always been bi. I mean, it’s something that I’ve always been interested in,” he added. “I think people are born bi, and it’s just that our parents and society kind of veer us off into this feeling of ‘Oh, I can’t.’ They say it’s taboo. It’s ingrained in our heads that it’s bad when it’s not bad at all. It’s a very beautiful thing.”
In an interview with the Out magazine in 2010, he said “I don’t really classify myself as anything. And when it comes to intimacy, there are parts of me that are very shy and conservative.” His Band’s song “Coming Clean” was also about coming out of the closet. He’s said about the song,
“It was a song about questioning myself. There are these other feelings you may have about the same gender, the opposite gender, especially being in Berkeley and San Francisco then.”
Former Disney Star has been clear about her sexuality and she doesn’t fear in admitting that she is “Pansexual”. She once said I’m very open about it – I’m pansexual, “But I’m not in a relationship. I’m 22, I’m going on dates, but I change my style every two weeks, let alone who I’m with.”
“My whole life, I didn’t understand my own gender and my own orientation. I always hated the word ‘bisexual,’ because that’s even putting me in a box. I don’t ever think about someone being a boy or someone being a girl,” Miley once said to Variety. “Also, my pasties and s–t never felt sexualized to me. My eyes started opening in the fifth or sixth grade. My first relationship in my life was with a chick. I grew up in a very religious Southern family.”
Kesha in an interview with Seventeen magazine in 2013, she admitted that she likes both genders. She said “It’s just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you’re with.” She is dating Brad Ashenfelter since 2014 and has never been in a relationship with a woman in public.
She further explained to the magazine that she wants to help the kids who victims of Bullying and especially those who come under LGBTQ. She added, I’m all about standing up to gay/lesbian/transgender bullying, but it’s also about my little brother,” she said “He’s 13 and he gets made fun of because he has a stutter. I just have zero tolerance for making fun of others.”
American Horror Story star Sarah has dated Cherry Jones from 2004-2009 and since 2015, she is dating Holland Taylor who is 32 years senior from her. Before dating Holland, she has always dated men. In 2015, she told to Pride Source “All I can say is, I’ve done both, and I don’t let either experience define me”
“I don’t let having been with a man make me think I am heterosexual or make me want to call myself that, because I know I have been attracted to women — and have lived with women,” she continued. “So, for me, I’m not looking to define myself, and I’m sorry if that is something that is seen as a rejection of or an unwillingness to embrace [my sexuality] in a public way, but it’s simply not. It’s simply what’s true for me, and that’s all I can speak to.”
“If my life choices had to be predicated based on what was expected of me from a community on either side, that’s going to make me feel really straitjacketed, and I don’t want to feel that,” She later told the New York Times. “What I can say absolutely is that I am in love, and that person happens to be Holland Taylor.”
