In a candid interview with The Sunday Times, the moody singer opened up to writer Louis Wise about his sexuality, his gender and how he loves to rock a kickin' pair of heels.
When asked about why it took him so long to come out, the now-25-year-old "Stay With Me" singer said, "Looking back on it, it was the fear of saying the wrong thing and offending."
The Brit continued, "And I was 19 when I started writing the first album. I’d just moved to London from a village—I was literally the only gay in the village. I didn’t know what I wanted to say."
