Union J’s George Shelley: “I’ve Had Girlfriends, But I’ve Also Had Boyfriends”

Union J band member George Shelley has opened up about his sexuality in a new YouTube video titled “I’ve got something to talk about.”

The 22-year-old singer told fans: “I’ve been reading a lot of speculation online as to whether I’m straight, or gay, or bi, and all these labels are a little bit old fashioned, which is why I’m not going to label it myself.”

He continued: “I’ve had girlfriends that I’ve loved, and they’ve been amazing periods of my life, but I’ve also had boyfriends, and I just want you to know that whether I decide to be with a girl next, or be with a guy next, that it’s because I love them.”

“So yeah, there it is. I’ve not changed, I’m still me, I’m still the same person I’ve always been, I’m just becoming a little bit less scared of being myself, and that makes me quite happy.”
