Loreen - the winner of the 2012 Eurovision Song contest - has come out as bisexual in an interview on Swedish television program Renées brygga (Renee’s Bridge) this week.
“Many people are so focused on sex, on sexuality. Love is so much more. I usually say ‘Love is where you find it,’” the singer says.
Host Renée Nyberg asked to clarify if she was bisexual with Loreen replying that she “quite simply” was.
The Euphoria singer has previously hinted that she was not heterosexual. In 2011 she spoke with a Swedish LGBT+ magazine and said it would be wrong to say she only liked men.
“I’m open. I want to find love. And if I find it with a woman and it feels right, then it is right,” Loreen said at the time.
She commented on the television program that while she’s too busy for a relationship at the moment, she has a “functional sex life”.
Loreen is competing in Melodifestivalen this month, Sweden’s preliminaries for the Eurovision Song Contest.
She’ll be competing against another former Eurovision winner—Charlotte Perrelli, who won in 1999—to once again represent Sweden in the contest.
