Lauren Jauregui Opens Up About Relationships & LGBTQ Activism

Lauren Jauregui looks so beautiful on the cover of Gay Times, which is out now.

Here’s what the 22-year-old Fifth Harmony singer said…

On relationships: “You should always have your standards. You should have your limits, your boundaries, things that make you comfortable, things that you like, things that you don’t like. You should know all those things. But you should never expect another person to give you those things. It’s important when you’re in a relationship with someone to understand that the other person isn’t you – they’re not gonna love like you do, and they’re gonna have their own language, if you will. And so if you wanna really love somebody, you’ve gotta apply yourself in terms of learning that person’s language. You can’t expect that the way you would react to things will be the way that other person’s going to react. But at the same time, you’ve got to look out for yourself and make sure you’re being taken care of. If the other person isn’t trying to listen to your language, they’re not the person for you. And when that happens, you’ve gotta move on.”

On being a solo artist after Fifth Harmony: “I had kind of turned myself off creatively as far as, like, trying to make music went for so long that I feel like I had no idea what I wanted to sound like. And that [what I should sound like] is something that keeps evolving every day – I feel like I’m getting closer and closer to my answer. Right now, at this exact moment, I’m in a much clearer headspace than I’ve ever been on what my sound and my vibe is.”

On LGBTQ activism in 2019: “We have a voice and a community that’s definitely united in a way that’s special during this time, but if we’re talking about politically – if we’re talking about the way people are being treated and talked about, there’s a lot of progress to be made, I believe, especially from a legal standpoint. But you know, I’m not the bitch with all the answers. I definitely don’t have all the solutions. But look at the way we unite at Pride – the way the community’s there for each other. We have amazing things in our favor. But there’s levels to all of this, and we can discriminate even among ourselves.”
