Eleanor “Elly” Jackson
Outstandingly coiffed artist Eleanor “Elly” Jackson is best known as the lead singer of La Roux (the electro band behind the still-ubiquitous 2012 hit “Bulletproof”).
The pop star doesn’t adhere to any sort of strict gender identity, saying in 2010:
“I don’t have a sexuality. I don’t feel like I’m female or male. I don’t belong to the gay or straight society, if there is such a thing.
I feel like I’m capable of falling in love with other people.I’m not saying I’m bisexual, I’m just sexual!”
In a 2014 Guardian profile, she elaborated further on her stance:
“If I say, ‘I’m straight,’ nobody will come around to my house and take a picture of my boyfriend. If I say, ‘I’m gay,’ then somebody will come around and try to take a picture of my girlfriend.It’s all very well people telling me to be open about it, but it will impact my life.Why should I have to bear the brunt of what would happen? All I know is that if it’s not something I have any interest or desire to talk about, then that needs to be my only reason.”
