‘True blood’ Star Anna Paquin on Bisexuality
During a recent interview with long time t.v. host Larry King, Anna Paquin, star of the HBO show “True Blood,” was questioned about her personal life.
Paquin, 32, came out as bisexual in 2010 and is married to co-star Stephen Moyer. When asked by King if she was a “non-practicing bisexual” Paquin responded by saying, “well, I am married to my husband and we are happily, monogamously married.”
King pressed further asking if she “was bisexual” and her response couldn’t have been more brilliant. “It’s not a past tense thing,” Paquin stated, “Are you still straight if you are with somebody, and – if you were to break up with them or if they were to die, it doesn’t prevent your sexuality from existing, it doesn’t really work like that.”

Ariana Grande: More Than Just Cheating
Ariana Grande gets it. Sometimes a guy leaves a girl for another girl, and sometimes he leaves her for another guy. The song “Break Your Heart Right Back” featuring Childish Gambino is about a boy that cheats on a girl with another boy.
Appearing on her latest album My Everything, Grande says the song is one of her favorites because “it’s really funny” and she told UK Metro she believes it has happened to her.
Grande goes on to say that the song was orignially supposed to be about a boy who cheats with another girl, but then she said “no, I want it to be about a boy who cheats on a girl with another boy.”
Earlier in August, Grande made headlines by defending her gay brother, Frankie Grande, a house member on Big Brother, after an internet troll used a homophobic slur against him on Instagram.
