"I do not want to touch your boobs". "2. if you think it's cute and sexy when girls make out with other cute and sexy girls guess what it's cute and sexy no matter who you are or who you make out with." Well said, Oliver. The breakthrough singer recently discussed his use of male pronouns on Year & Years debut album Communion - which scored a second week at Number One on the UK Albums Chart last Friday (July 24) - saying he finds it "sad" that some gay pop stars still feel like they can't direct their lyrics towards men.
