“People don’t know this, but when I was 7, I remember becoming obsessed with Boy George and Marilyn, and all that,” he said. “There was one moment in my life where I didn’t own a piece of male clothing, really. I would wear full make up every day in school, eyelashes, leggings,
with Dr. Martens and huge fur coats, for 2.5 years.”
He also spoke of his love for wearing heels, and gave a shout out to a drag shop in Sydney, where he says he buys shoes and dresses any chance he can.

“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,” he explained.
he’s gearing up to release his sophomore effort, “The Thrill of It All,” next week.
“I remember, at the beginning of my career, being called a ‘gay singer,’ and I didn’t want that. I wanted to be seen as a singer first, before people spoke about my private life,” he said. “I think (the new songs) show my growth, my confidence. I feel like they show me. They show the gay guy I’ve become.”
