JUST YOU WAIT, MISSY HIGGINS, JUST YOU WAIT … FOR STARDOM!
Like many a circumspect celeb, Australian singer-songwriter Missy Higgins has been reluctant to discuss her personal life.
But in a recent interview with Melbourne’s Cherrie magazine, “The magazine for not-so-straight girls about town,” Missy said the term “not-so-straight” fits her just fine:
Um, yeah, definitely. I think a lot of people fall under that broad umbrella term. I think sexuality is a fluid thing and it’s becoming increasingly more acceptable to admit that you’re that way.
And she wants to keep things fluid and undefined: “I don’t think it’s necessary to have to define yourself by any label. If you’re comfortable with who you are and you know who you are on the inside, people will love you for it.”
You know what else they’ll love you for? Your music, if it’s this good:
Higgins’ new album, On a Clear Night, was released in April, and she will soon embark on a national (i.e., Australian), carbon-neutral (i.e., un-American) tour— visit her website for details.
