Yungblud is on the cover of Attitude‘s September 2019 issue, out now.
Here’s what the 22-year-old musician had to say…
On his gender-bending style: “That’s why I f–king wear a dress on stage. We’ve been brought up with such boundaries: woman wears dress, man sees woman’s curves, you can make baby. Western civilization put women in dresses and men in trousers. Before that, in medieval times, every f–ker wore a dress. I wake up one day and want to look girly as f–k, and I’ll wake up the next and walk out of the house in a Fred Perry polo shirt looking like I’ll beat the s–t of out you. I’ll be Anita from West Side Story then suddenly transform into Liam Gallagher.”
On his sexual fluidity: “I am more straight. [But If] I walked down the street and met a f–king bloke tomorrow, or a trans person, you never know. It’s about connection. I’m very fluid about it.”
On his battle with mental health issues: “I came to London to be liberated, to be able to paint my nails, to f–king try sex with a guy, to try everything, to fulfill my fantasies and figure out who I am. Ultimately, it was a massive journey to being comfortable in myself. But in that journey, I got more confused… [I’d get] blazed and f–ked up. Then I’d sit in my room and cry my f–king eyes out… I [still] have to get talked off the ledge 10 times a day, but I know who I am now. There is always the dark part in everyone’s brain. You wake up in the morning, you’ve got a knot in your stomach and you don’t know why. But you just have to tell yourself that it’s fine, breathe, go for a walk, make love to your girlfriend or boyfriend, anything that will make it better.”
