“I don’t have a sexuality. I don’t feel like I’m female or male. I don’t belong to the gay or straight society, if there is such a thing. I feel like I’m capable of falling in love with other people. I’m not saying I’m bisexual, I’m just sexual!”
— Elly Jackson, lead singer of La Roux, said to StarPulse.com. By mingling the masculine (le roux) and feminine (la rousse) French words for redhead, the band was named LaRoux — a nod to Jackson’s red hair and androgynous appearance.
