Just call me the bedroom queen
SINGER Christine and the Queens says sex can be ‘beautifully dirty’ — after revealing she explores paying for sex and putting out on a first date in tracks on her new album.
The pansexual popstar — who is attracted to all genders — is following up global smash Chaleur Humaine with new record Chris. And she admits she is happily testing social norms with her latest material.
Kicking down some barriers, the 30-year-old Frenchwoman revealed she doesn’t care ‘if people think I’m slutty or shoving too much of my body and my face in their head’.
Addressing her shameless bedroom antics, the singer — real name Héloïse Letissier — adds: ‘I want to be the cleverest woman in the room but also the sluttiest if I want, and this character can work.’
That goes for women paying for sex too if they fancy it — a notion she explores in her new tracks 5 Dollars and Damn.
‘I fantasise about if I did,’ she said. ‘It became one of the things that could excite me — for what it could install and what it could actually soothe. Because it’s the catharsis to all of those questions in a really simple, settled way, which can be, actually, sexually freeing.’
The singer, who quit therapy after just two sessions, also says there is no shame in a woman putting out on the first night.
‘It’s a real way to take power over your body… choosing what you inflict on yourself,’ she explains, as she slamdunks male partners who are shocked by her sexual freedom.
Recalling one exchange between the sheets, her take was: ‘“Oh, so you do that on the first night?” With judgment! I was like, “Well, you let me do that on the first night, what the f*** is wrong with you!” How is it a trophy for dudes and not for girls?’
