Cara Delevingne to ‘Vogue’ Magazine: My Bisexuality Is Not a Phase
Vogue recently came under fire when the magazine suggested that Cara Delevingne is going through a bisexual “phase.” But what does the model actually think about the fashion publication’s remark?
In her latest interview with The New York Times, Delevingne, 22, addressed the controversial comment made in her Vogue profile. While she found it flattering that many protested on her behalf, she said she saw “nothing malicious” in the actual article.
However, she also quickly noted, “My sexuality is not a phase. I am who I am.”
“Being in love helps, you know?” she continued about her bisexuality, referring to her relationship with musician Annie Clark (who goes by the stage name St. Vincent). “If you’re in love with someone, you can be with them like no one else is in the room.”
In the Vogue article, Delevingne told the fashion publication that, as a child, she felt confused and frightened by the possibility of being gay. The magazine noted that “her parents seem to think girls are just a phase for Cara, and they may be correct.”
“It took me a long time to accept the idea, until I first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognized that I had to accept it,” Delevingne, who was also previously linked to actress Michelle Rodriguez, said. “But I have erotic dreams only about men. I had one two nights ago where I went up to a guy in the back of a VW minivan, with a bunch of his friends around him, and pretty much jumped him.”
“Women are what completely inspire me, and they have also been my downfall. I have only been hurt by women, my mother first of all,” she continued. “The thing is, if I ever found a guy I could fall in love with, I’d want to marry him and have his children. And that scares me to death because I think I’m a whole bunch of crazy, and I always worry that a guy will walk away once he really, truly knows me.”
