Anne-Marie is bisexual.

The ‘Ciao Adios’ hitmaker has revealed she’s attracted to both men and women but she’s never felt the “need” to come out to the world because she doesn’t want to label herself.

Speaking to The Line of Best Fit, she said: “I’ve never ever just been attracted to men. I’ve never just been attracted to women.

“I’ve never felt the need to tell anyone that I’m bisexual. I don’t feel like I am. I just feel like I’m attracted to who I like. I honestly feel like everyone is like that.”

The 27-year-old singer shot into the limelight when she dropped her single ‘Rockabye’ with Clean Bandit and has since become known for pouring her heart out in her tracks, but she admitted it can be “scary” to lay her feelings out to the world.

She said: “It’s quite scary to tell everyone my personal stories but also it feels like I’m letting off a little steam at the same time. Also I love to help people who are in the same situation. So if they are going through a bad time they can feel empowered. I write my songs as if I’m the strong one so hopefully they feel good after listening to them.”

And it’s not just her music that her heartbreak has inspired, as the ‘Alarm’ hitmaker also has several tattoos handwritten by the people who have taught her a lesson in life.

She said recently: “All of my tattoos are written by the people who have taught me what the thing is. My best friend taught me a lot about forgiveness so this is his handwriting.

“I do forget to forgive sometimes so it’s good to have it on my shoulder to remind me. The tattoos will go on and on. I’ve got ‘trust’ tattooed on me and I have a tattoo on my finger that’s for my parents. I just love to get stuff that’s really meaningful. I want my tattoos to be a story of my life.”
