“Sorry girls, I’m not a lesbian” - La Roux

La Roux September 29th, 2009

La Roux singer Elly Jackson has said she is sick of getting bras thrown at by lesbian fans.

In an interview with Heat magazine, 21-year-old Jackson said she always knew she would have a large lesbian following, but she wished they were just interested in her music and nothing more.

“It’s the fact that they think I want their bras - that’s what’s weird about it,” explained Jackson. “One girl in Toronto stood there for ages with her boobs out. Everyone just thinks I’m a raging lesbian and I want to see everyone’s boobs. Sorry, I’m not.”

“I knew that was going to happen. I’m not bothered by it. It was obvious that was what a lot of my fan base would be. I don’t care who comes to the gigs or who likes the music, as long as it’s for the music and not because they fancy you. That’s a shit reason to come to a gig.”

According to an interview published in The Observer last Sunday, even straight women can’t resist the singer’s androgynous 80s looks: “Looking at the kind of women you see on TV, I wouldn’t think people would find someone like me attractive,” said Jackson.

“But a lot of girls come up to me in clubs and say things like: ‘I’ve got a boyfriend, but I’m attracted to you.’ That’s insane.”

  • Yet more Bi-phobia! (Admittedly not from a Lesbian woman this time, but that’s hardly the point.)

    Why on Earth should anyone view being approached by a Bi-sexual or Bi-curious woman in a nightclub as ‘Insane?’

    If you’ve read my most recent comment on “Why Do Lesbians Hate Bi-sexuals?” You’ll know that it’s precisely this kind of attitude that makes my girlfriend afraid to express her own desires.

    “Sorry, I’m not interested” is all she anyone has to say, regardless of their own sexual preferences. But please do not merely dismiss any Bi-sexuals as being ‘Perverted’ or ‘Mad.’

  • On second thought though, assuming that the author is indeed a Lesbian herself, the implication that ‘Straight’ women are attracted to Ms Jackson is another example of Lesbian Bi-ignorance and Bi-phobia.

    The author appears to assume these women are straight, simply because say that they have boyfriends. But by definition, a women in a Heterosexual relationship who is attracted to another woman is ‘Bi-curious’ at the very least.

    Please stop assuming a person’s sexual preferences, based soley upon the relationship that they happen to be in at the moment.

  • I’ve been searching for music that we like for some time now and I found this free radio widget that plays all of the great club hits. I installed the widget on my Facebook page and u can too by going to http://apps.facebook.com/prideradio/ or by clicking get &share. Pride radio has music that is just right for us. It’s awesome!

  • Maybe she thinks the women’s remarks are “insane” because a)they’ve already got a partner and b)she’s someone they’ve never met before, and presumably their attraction is largely based on her being famous? Rather than a general attraction to women?

  • Dear Polly Styrene,

    (Nice name by the way :-)

    Assuming that your post was refering directly to my first two comments, I completely understand what you mean. But in support of my original accusations of Bi-phobia, however latent, please consider the following arguments:

    How many thousands of straight, female fans in Heterosexual relationships throw themselves at famous men they’ve never met?

    As far as I’m aware, Ms Jackson does not describe the women who throw their bras at her or stand for hours with their boobs out as ‘Insane;’ merely over-enthusiastic ‘Lesbian’ fans who assume that their infatuation is mutual. But I wonder, just how many of these female fans are actually Bi-sexual?

    And finally, on the flip-side of the first question I posed, how many men in Heterosexual relationships throw themselves at Ms Jackson and other female singers, not knowing her as an individual and only feeling attracted to her because she’s famous?

    These men would also be cheating on their partners and infatuated without good cause, and yet Ms Jackson does not also describe them as being ‘Insane.’

    The accusation of ‘Insanity’ could also be applied to any similar situation.

    For example, when a woman stands for hours at a concert flashing her boobs at the lead singer , male or female, then it’s pretty much accepted as a harmless bit of fun. But if any infatuated man at a concert were ever to do something similar???

    I suppose that the basic point I’m trying to make here is ‘Judge Not Lest Yee Be Judged.’

    If you’re simply not attracted to someone, regardless of aestheic issues such as gender or trans-gender, sexuality or appearance, then ‘Sorry, I’m not interested’ is all that anyone needs to say. But just as it’s wrong for anyone to judge a person who DOESN’T find you attractive, I believe that it’s equally wrong for anyone to ever judge someone who does.

    “You’ve got a boyfriend and you find me attractive…That’s Insane!”

  • “How many thousands of straight, female fans in Heterosexual relationships throw themselves at famous men they’ve never met?”

    I have no idea to be honest, but I wouldn’t think they’re particularly rational either. There’s nothing wrong with being attracted to someone, but even if Elly Jackson was attracted to women, it’s a bit presumptuous to think that she’s up for it with any passing stranger basically. I’d be irritated if someone approached me in a club and said “I’m really attracted to you” and automatically expected me to reciprocate. I think it’s a mite stalkerish, to say the least, to do this to someone because they’re a celebrity.

    And fans flashing their bits in an audience is one thing, presuming a personal relationship is another.

    There is a serious point here, which is the sexualisation/objectification of lesbians by some women. Who seem to assume that if a woman is a lesbian (ok Jackson isn’t but they presumably think she is) she is automatically going to be up for sex with any passing woman. I should think that if it happens to you constantly, strangers flinging themselves at you could get a bit wearing so I can understand Jackson being pissed off.

    Jackson does say her lesbian fans are ‘weird’ actually. Basically she’s saying it’s a bit odd to go to a gig just because you fancy the person. As someone who once suffered through a Tegan and Sara gig (I had a free ticket) whilst my friend sighed about how gorgeous they were I tend to agree. The only sensible reason to go to a gig is because you like the music.

    polly styrene ∼ October 2nd, 2009 7:50 pm
  • Dear Polly,

    I agree fundamentally with everything you say.

    Some women might be objectifying and sexualising other women, regardless of each other’s sexuality.

    Growing sick of unwanted romantic attention or advances is also a perfectly normal and acceptable response. So in the end, I have no problem at all with the first part of this article; Ms Jackson stating quite clearly that she has no sexual or romantic interest in any other women; Lesbian, Bi-sexual, Bi-curious or otherwise.

    However, judging everyone who behaves in a particular manner to be doing so for the same reason, good, bad or indifferent is a true problem in our society. And whilst everyone has an equal right to say no, putting a stop to any unwanted behaviour from any ‘Individual’ person, judging and labelling any group for that behaviour must always be opposed.

    In the end, I was only using this article as a platform to speak out against what I believe to be a common, generic problem.

    Having never even heard of this band before reading the article, I am in no position whatsoever to judge the music or its fans. However, I did perceive the second part of this article to be another example of Bi-phobia. So whilst I was making specific reference to the article’s author and Ms Jackson’s statements, I was only doing so to express my feelings on what I believe to be a much wider issue.

    Whilst many people who go to concerts will only do so for the music, as you say, regardless of their gender or sexuality, many others may simply be fantasising about the male or female lead singer.

    And similarly, whilst the behaviour of some women who approach Ms Jackson in a bar may be considered ‘a mite stalkish,’ others may simply be stating the fact that “I have a boyfriend, but I think you’re really attractive.” Not expecting or asking for anything romantic, but merely expressing how they feel.

    This behaviour may, and indeed, possibly SHOULD make us all feel uncomfortable. But whilst everyone has the equal right to simply say, ‘I’m sorry, but I’m not interested,’ even taking legal action against anyone who refuses to respect our wishes, I don’t think that we can allow ourselves to ever judge a person as being part of a ‘Group.’

    Perhaps both of my original comments could be construed as an over-reaction, making mountains out of molehills etc.

    Perhaps after spending so much time considering the question of “Why Do Lesbians Hate Bi-sexuals?” I was hyper-aware of the situation and posted a comment that I would not have normally made.

    In any case however, I hope that you will not be offended if I say that I do not wish to discuss this topic any further. The sad truth is that there is Bi-phobia and other discrimination in our society, and I all I ask is that we never unduly label anyone as being part of a single ‘Group.’

    James Uscroft ∼ October 2nd, 2009 9:32 pm
  • I guess La Roux is maybe frustrated that she gets far more advances from women than men. The way she looks that could well be what happened before fame and with fame it’s only increased.

    Her “biphobia” is I feel sure (as is so often the case) more a matter of ignorance than spite.

    Incidentally it is completely unnecessary to write “bi-sexual” and I feel it is somewhat biphobic to hyphenate the word unless you also hyphenate the words heterosexual and homosexual. And also biphobic therefore to hyphenate biphobia unless you also hyphenate homophobia.

    Geri ∼ October 3rd, 2009 3:08 pm
  • Thanks for making that point, Geri. The hyphenisation was really starting to get on my wick.

  • “Everyone just thinks I’m a raging lesbian and I want to see everyone’s boobs.”

    Of course because that’s how lesbians are. They just want to see boobs all the time… EVERYONE’S boobs…and they rage…whatever that means.

    Seriously, I can understand the frustration of having fans who might not necessarily like you for your work but that’s no excuse for ignorant crap statements like this. I’d normally say this smacks of a typical closet case but in this instance I’m not sure if I WANT to be right.

    Lenny ∼ October 19th, 2009 5:18 pm
  • She’s not saying that a “bi-sexual” or “bi-curious” woman is insane. She stated earlier that STRAIGHT women find her attractive, and she finds that insane.

    Hell, I’m straight, and I find her very attractive! I would never date a woman, but…I think Elly is very good looking.

    Sab ∼ October 22nd, 2009 2:33 am
  • Hi there! I would agree generally with what James said and a couple of other people on here.

    I am certainly a fan of La Roux, clearly for the music but I wouldn’t deny I like Elly Jackson very much. I find her sweet, different, I like her androgynous look and I also have an 80s crush generally so I like the fact that she combined flashbacks with futuristic elements and visions/images inspired from the music La Roux produces. Most of all I like her voice. But the fact that finally someone sweet like Elly comes nowadays and does not ‘play’ necessarily with sex in the game of video clips and does not sell her image in a disgusting way but does her own thing, is attractive. The whole thing is attractive and the fact that she is different is attractive. I mean, us people can be attracted by several types or things. This is an answer to: “Looking at the kind of women you see on TV, I wouldn’t think people would find someone like me attractive,” Ms Jackson. And as Outkast said, I’m sorry Ms Jackson! Anyway, this one is for everyone: It’s not only the fame that causes attraction. Taking example from Elly who is a more down to earth presence, we do so and we must, seek that little ‘thing’ on people around us every day, like Elly has, as we have found ourselves to be seeking perfection a lot after all this hollywood and media toxic storm and it is wrong. Sorry I am generalizing, I feel like I want to write several things after having read this page.

    So the fact that I ‘like’ Elly as I mentioned is a good thing and I wouldn’t say I am straight or gay or bi or bi-curious. I like someone for what they are. It can happen for them to be male either female. The person is what matters, not the gender..therefore I’d call labels SHIT as long as people know what they’re doing. Elly said few stupid things and I do not feel that she appreciates or sucks the fun out of the crowd/fans situation. You know, with all the crisis of the music industry- which is continuing I presume- it is hard to become an icon in the 21st century as we are going through massive recycling and so on. Elly has gained a pretty decent and high list entry in the style she went for. She succeed pretty quickly, not only as an electro/pop musician but also as an icon. Above her even more as an icon and of course in a different category is Amy Winehouse (that’s a personal point of view) who also did a great job and brought something which was feeling like it was missing nowadays. With more people like them it feels much better I suppose (take one of their songs for example that all of us can hear and relate to)… I mean they can entertain, inspire etc. Things are ‘on-the-move’! Another (deeper) example are now ‘The XX’.. Check them out by the way if you haven’t already, they are great!

    Because this comment has gone too far anyway, what I will precisely say on Elly’s quotes is that I did not like her perspective and her appreciation even if someone showed off their boobs. She should have faced it more discreetly at least if she is homophobic. Did she get so scared seeing a pair of boobs? Hasn’t she got one herself? Didn’t she laugh seeing this? I am 21 too and I’d laugh at it I guess. Were the boobs at least decent Elly? I mean, if they were like two sacks of sand, I feel you! And I don’t care what what you are by the way, gay, straight, bi, bye-bye, trans, robot. I don’t. Because you have the right to be whatever you want. If someone wants to hit on you, they will, no matter what. You should know that in your age and you should also know how to face it if you are not interested. If not, ask a friend! If you don’t have friends, believe it or not, there are youtube videos that can show you what to do in these occasions :P And by the way, now that you are more popular dear Elly, you should know that generally in the ‘celebrity crush world’, usually first come the gay fans. Haven’t you seen it around? I just think the way you are reacting is even more ‘insane’ than the people you call as such. I mean, in certain points, it seems like. That’s all. Even my huge comment is insane now. Anything can be. But I wont freak out, really.

  • re: “She’s not saying that a “bi-sexual” or “bi-curious” woman is insane. She stated earlier that STRAIGHT women find her attractive, and she finds that insane.”
    Sorry, Sab, but you’re totally missing the point. If a ’straight’ woman (or one perceived to be straight because they have a boyfriend) finds another woman attractive, whether it’s because they think she’s gay, talented, famous or merely ‘good looking’- does that not make her bisexual at some level? Even if they don’t actually admit to it & just, I dunno, hang around lesbian sites on the internet?
    Would it be equally ‘insane’ for a man to admit to her on first meeting that he finds her attractive even though he’s in a relationship?

  • Many Bisexuals are attracted to people who are a Blend of traits, neither Masculine nor Feminine but inbetween. That’s why we like the Androgynous look. This is part of Bisexuality

  • Hmmm…why will some people care so much about elly jackson sexuality. Iam a fan of La Roux!! Elly jackson look like man( who those who thinking). But for me she looks like a woman. What? U mean if someone who cuts the hair short is a man? I can’t understand the people who thinks she’s a lesbian. Btw, she look pretty cute and beautiful. And different from other artists. I think I agree with james. And I think Elly is not wrong at all. She is just here to be Singer. And I also hate the people who says elly is a LESBIAN, GAY, LESBIAN BOY!!! That’s stupid.

    Melissa ∼ November 10th, 2009 3:12 pm
  • I am a great fan of LaRoux and I really like Elly Jackson for her singular style and amazing voice and I have seen several interviews of her and I think she seems to be a great person, really down to earth. In my opinion she wants to keep her private life private and the fact that a lot of people ask questions about her sexuality must be really annoying. As she said, she wants to be appreciated for her music and not because people have a crush on her. I don’t agree with you guys who said that she seems to have a homophobic point of view.
    I mean when she says “Everyone just thinks I’m a raging lesbian and I want to see everyone’s boobs ” doesn’t mean that she considers all lesbians as that. She just explains how some people can make weird things. If I was her and if I see that kind of things at one of my gigs, I will find it’s crazy (and it would be the same thing if it was girls who throw up their bras for a male singer, it’s just ridiculous in my opinion)
    And I think that what she believes “insane” is not the fact that a girl told her she likes her, it’s the fact these girl “loves” her in a way, despite of the fact they don’t know her at all, except of what they have seen on TV. I mean imagine you are in the street and someone, boy or girl, come and tell you he/she loves you, it will be quite strange isn’t it ?
    So what I try to explain is just that I believe she has difficulties to manage with her success and fame and with people who come and tell to her they love her, and I think it’s not a reason to accuse her of homophobia

    when I said that, sorry I only meant that Amy is in a different style category and a different icon than Elly. above was probably in my brain as i was thinking that amy was popular before elly or something. They both are equally good and equally inspiring icons. ‘above her’ was a wrong expression. sorry don’t mind me i am greek and sometimes i mess my english typing. it happens! especially if youre working on a macintosh all day and night. hahah anyway thats it i feel better now

    Helena Koursou ∼ November 27th, 2009 5:41 pm
  • Could she be any more arrogant? Why not just be flattered?
    Pink has a huge gay following and she doesn’t complain. She should be flattered that anyone finds her attractive because quite frankly I think she is far from it.

    It gives herself a bad image and she should be more careful with her words

  • I dunno; I interpreted the “that’s insane” comment (especially following her statement: “Looking at the kind of women you see on TV, I wouldn’t think people would find someone like me attractive”) to mean “that’s crazy” in the sense that Elly’s amazed over the abundance of people — males and females, straight and gay alike — who are attracted to her. I think she speaks exactly what’s on her mind and people misinterpret or overanalyze it; I’m a lesbian, and I’ve yet to have felt insulted by something she’s said.

    Caity ∼ February 19th, 2010 7:03 pm
  • I kinda get how she might feel insulted by a bi-curious female waving her boobs at her…at a gig. I certainly would. She prob was like…”does she think I’m some kinda sicko.” But I don’t agree on comin to a gig for only the music. I mean come on if I don’t like you I’m not comin to any of your gigs despite how good your performance maybe.So I disagree there. But I always thought she was bi, but if she isn’t hey, dosen’t bother me 1 way or another. I still love her…and the others that make the band, and I still adore her voice and music. ALOTT!!

  • You’re all ridiculous. You can dissect a sentence from anyone and find a way to interpret it as being hateful. If that’s what you want to find, that’s what you find. To me, it just looks more like she’s some girl who isn’t into other girls, and that’s it. Most of society is a little homophobic if they’re straight, and that’s not an evil thing. It’s not right, but it’s not evil.

    It’s just a product of the times, and hopefully a while down the road things will be different. Until then, we shouldn’t be picking apart incredibly standard responses to a situation that are not at all hateful. Perhaps she’s a bit ignorant, but try and say everything she said on the spot in an interview correctly in her shoes. It doesn’t happen, unless you really, really care about the subject and are worried about people over analyzing what you say.

    Going to a gig just because you think she’s hot is ridiculous, and obsessive. Obsession is a rather creepy thing, perhaps not “insane”, but it’s creepy. If these people are just being creeps, going to her gigs to look at her, then talking to her at the bar because they think she wants them for some strange reason… does the word insane start to fit?

    I’ll also add that she said “a raging lesbian and I want to see everyones boobs”, pick it apart if you want to find a reason to be pissed, but she’s not referring to some standard lesbian. She’s referring to the uber creeps who actually do this sort of thing. Find another way to say it, that doesn’t take you more than I don’t know, 10 seconds, and then you can be pissed at or upset with her.

  • dudes..it has NOTHING to do with biphobia..it has to do with loyalty and becoming sexually attracted and aroused by another person (man or woman) which she of course finds obserd as would i. See..Elly is pansexual meaning you can love whomever ur very attracted to. Now with this woman…with a bf as it was..and for her to approach Elly IN person (not as a “im ur biggest fan” but as “i want in ur pants) DONT YOUUU personally think ud be a lil disgusted? Obviously Elly has a very mature old soul. I think its a lil inappropriate/slutty for a woman to throw a dirty bra at her on stage kinda being like “look at my breasts dont u wanna f&^% me?” i mean come on..even if it was a dude shed be disgusted as well..she came to sing and perform..not f&*%^. Im a lesbian and i approve this message xP oh also i dont appreciate ur a-hole comments abt her appearance..she took enough of that sh*t in highschool..so f&*^ off. I personally think shes gorgeous and has a haunting amazing lurring voice. And shes bringing back the 80’s!! hell ya!

  • I’m straight male. I just want to share that Ms. Jackson is beautiful, inside and out. And I’m happy for her success.. And she’s bringing back the 80’s, how cool is that.

    alex ∼ September 16th, 2010 9:38 pm
  • Well, I think she is very sexy. I love her music
    Her musical style electropop 80 is great!
    but I love her style, her clothes, hair and she looks masculine.
    She attracts me, that’s true
    but I don’t think that’s a shit reason, in fact, that makes me like her even more.
    Roux, don’t be hard with your fans

  • my friend was backstage at the Isle of Wight festival earlier this year and she told me she sat next to La Roux getting off with some woman (I think it was I Blame Coco?) so this is pretty hilarious

  • Indenial much La Roux??? Lol.

    God she really is up herself. People are not harming her by flashing their boobs. Jeeez, this just reinforces my thoughts about her being a ‘poo’ head! haha

  • I’m sick and tired of the gay/lesbian population!
    You bastards from hell always ruin good peoples names!
    You made me lose confidence and respect for all of you, and I hope you all end up in hell where you belong!

  • “all of you” - do you know all LGBT people, Yvonne?

  • Um… What? O.o

    Bella ∼ January 27th, 2011 2:45 pm
  • okay. well first of all, elly jackson has every right to be who ever or whatever she wants to be. second, theres no point on saying whether shes is wrong or right. its her choice. I am straight but think it is a pretty cool way of being like her. she is different and that is what this society needs. no more brittany spears flaunting and raving her unattractive body all over the place or miley cyrus’s selling her image. that’s just all of the same stupid thing dressed more fashionably and brand new so of course everyone is going to either like them or hate them. it’s a cruel world out there and , elly, is one of the most fascinating people out in hollywood right now and let me just say, YOU GO ELLY !!!

  • Most straight people including myself feel repulsed by gay people coming onto them.

    You know what?

    I was / we were ‘born that way’.

    Deal with it.

    P.S. That you might find a straight person coming on to you to be repulsive is irrelevant.

    sarah ∼ April 18th, 2011 4:37 pm
  • I personally couldn’t give a rats ar*e if she is lesbian/bi/straight/whatever. Her music is rubbish anyway imo. But she wants to hope she doesn’t offend all those lesbians/ bisexuals/whatever or her ticket sales may dramatically fall as its them that keep her pockets lined!

    Kim ∼ April 18th, 2011 10:19 pm
  • noooooooo! shes so awesome though. i was hoping she could at least be an LGBT advocate though. but she seems a bit freaked out by it all. oh well D: she still has a gorgeous voice though

  • ““Looking at the kind of women you see on TV, I wouldn’t think people would find someone like me attractive,”

    It just seems to me that she never fancied herself being attractive in the “classic” sense … to anyone male or female. It seems like she’s cool with that, quite self-effacing about in fact. She also admits that she’s very aware of her androgenous look, and how some lesbians might go for that but still “why?” she asks, since she doesn’t think that she’s all that. YOU don’t have to (for all you tykes insulting her looks), she’s beaten you to it.

    Still, (to me) it just seems that she’s saying it’s weird or insane that of all things, het females (especially) would find her attractive when they have so many better options to have a crush on.

    Heero ∼ May 3rd, 2011 4:46 am
  • The reason they like you is because girls like guys and you look like a guy.

    I know ∼ June 11th, 2011 5:25 pm
  • Well since this article she’s since outed herself as some kinda pansexual so I’m pretty sure she meant no offence.

    Tallulah ∼ June 23rd, 2011 9:09 am
  • And oh how the homosexual community turns on you the second you say that you aren’t interested. Wonderfully tolerant people.

    Joe Jack ∼ July 1st, 2011 6:23 pm
  • I would be really gutted if it turned out she was lesbian im please shes not its disturbing how many girls are suddenly “turning lesbian” these days i think alot of them are not really sure what they are. Anyway lesbo’s hands off the hot girls leave them for us red blooded males as nature intended :) sorry for any offense.

    Steve ∼ August 2nd, 2011 7:00 pm
  • Hey Steve, Nature made a pretty huge mistake now didn’t it? Mostred blooded males don’t deserve hot women or any woman for that matter.

    amy ∼ August 4th, 2011 5:02 am
  • Deserve a woman? So in your arrogant opinion a womans value is greater than a mans? Let me remind you there were times when a woman coudnt spend all day shopping and worrying about how good she looks in the mirror.
    Times when a man would hunt for her food to allow her to survive another day, bare that in mind.

    Steve ∼ August 5th, 2011 7:23 pm
  • Steve; why don’t you hang out with the boys in your man-cave & leave the girls alone happily enjoying one another;-)

    rory ∼ August 6th, 2011 4:29 am
  • Bullshit

    James ∼ September 17th, 2011 3:44 pm
  • steve, those were very ignorant, offensively asshole-tastic remarks that were completely uncalled for. obviously you either hav only been with excessively shallow, self-concious women or you havent been with any at all. very few women spend all day obsessing over themselves. also, in case you havent noticed, the times when women needed men are LOOOONG over. and by the way, lesbians dont prey on “hot” straight women, nor do people “turn” gay. perhaps if you were actually educated on the subject you would know that that myth has been scientifcally disproved… numeous times! for future reference, it is quite unwise to jump on a site and go on an offensive discriminative rampage. you wil get called out. it’s pricks like you that give straight men a bad name… i am not a lesbian that hates men, but a lot of us do… because of people like you.
