Here's openly bisexual and Canadian songstress Nelly Furtado's "Say it Right":

And here's Nelly on whether she finds women attractive in GUS magazine:

Absolutely! Women are beautiful and sexy!... I'm reading a book which claims that people are inherently bisexual to balance their energies. In a way that makes so much sense. As humans, we have both male and female energies. I believe what Kurt Cobain said that in the end, everyone is gay. Everybody should have the freedom to experiment. Sexual experimentation is part of human history.

Hmm, not my kind of sound, though if she and Ozzy got together they probably could make some good music together.

I do like her music, but I don't believe she's bisexual for a minute -- she's talking about "energies" here, not actions. It sounds good, but what does it mean?

Meh - but then she's got my back up ever since the interview in Blender in which she said, “I went through a feminist phase and read a lot of philosophical stuff. Some of the male bashing brainwashed me for a bit so I stopped. I love men!”

Gross. Real feminists don't bash men. Not impressed.

Openly Canadian! Haha.

Ms Furtado used to date a friend of mine actually. I don't think she actually dates women.
