Blondie's Debbie Harry opens up about attraction to both women and men

Punk icon Debbie Harry--actress, singer, and front woman for the band Blondie--said in a recent German interview that she has been romantically involved with women as well as men.

During the interview, Debbie confirmed that she has dated women in the past, adding that she feels "women are more sensual," and that she has previously been in long-term relationships with men.

When describing the type of person she finds herself attracted to, Debbie explained, "I don’t know if I have any specific requirements.  Just somebody nice, who has a good sense of humor and loves to have sex. What more could you ask for?"

Numerous outlets have reported that Debbie came out as bisexual, though it doesn't appear that she has self-identified as such.

Debbie shot to fame in the 1970s as the lead singer and co-founder of the punk band Blondie, whose new album "Ghosts of a Download" drops this year. Along with her role in the Grammy Award-winning group, she has released five solo albums and holds acting credits spanning the course of her more-than-four-decade-long career.
