Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui: ‘Noone can use my bisexuality against me’

Fifth Harmony singer Lauren Jaurequi has said people “can’t use her bisexuality against her”.
Jaurequi, who came out as bisexual last year in a brutal letter to US President Donald Trump, spoke to Seventeen Magazine, the cover of which she appeared on with her bandmates.

She said: “You can’t use the fact that I’m bisexual against me if that’s something I’m proud of. I feel motivated more than scared to share who I am because it makes me feel awesome when someone comes up to me and says that because of me she was able to find the strength to accept herself.”
The singer previously spoke about a bisexual love song featuring Halsey.
Jaurequi told Elle magazine in an interview: “It’s a whole space that no one’s ever really touched upon before, and I feel like representation in music is so important.

“And reality-wise, we’ve both been in the situation before with different people, so it’s cool to have that representation.”
In the duet, the pair sing: “I miss the morning with you laying in my bed, I miss the memories replaying in my head.”
The song was described in Elle magazine as potentially the first same-sex love duet heard on mainstream radio.
Halsey has discussed the song in the past, saying: “I just love that Lauren [Jauregui] and I are two women who have a mainstream pop presence doing a love song for the LGBTQ community. It’s unheard of.
“It’s very rare to see it from a female perspective. It’s a whole space that no one’s ever really touched upon before, and I feel like representation in music is so important.

“And reality-wise, we’ve both been in the situation before with different people, so it’s cool to have that representation.”
Jauregui, 20, has featured in Fifth Harmony since the band was formed in 2012.
She came out as bisexual in a controversial letter to Donald Trump in November 2016, just 10 days after he beat Hillary Clinton to the US Presidency.
In the letter she described herself as a “proud bisexual Cuban-American”, and called Trump a “power-hungry tycoon” whose supporters are “worthless”.

She described Trump as a “power-hungry tycoon”
“Your words are worthless,” she told Trump’s supporters, “because your actions have led to the single-handed destruction of all the progress we’ve made socially as a nation.”
“You have, with your pure ignorance and refusal to understand the way the government and the world works, allowed a power-hungry business tycoon to take over the United States of America.
“‘The land of the free, the home of the brave, under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for ALL.’ You are HYPOCRITES,” she wrote in the letter published on Billboard.
