"I grew up in a very religious Southern family. The universe has always given me the power to know I'll be OK." Lady Gaga is another popular pop singer who is openly bisexual.

"It’s true – I am a bisexual, but I can’t deny that I’ve used that fact very well. I suppose it’s the best thing that ever happened to me. Fun, too," said David Bowie in 1976. Later, he said that stating that he was bisexual was the "biggest mistake" he ever made. Other famous bisexual singers include Billie Joe Armstrong, Dusty Springfield, and Michael Stipe.
