La Roux Star Jackson Is A Hit With The Ladies

LA ROUX singer ELLY JACKSON has found herself an unlikely hit with straight female fans desperate to romance her.
The British pop star insists she has a huge gay following - but is still shocked by girls who come to gigs with boyfriends only to proposition her.
And the Bulletproof hitmaker admits she's "terrified" of the straight women who try to bed her - because she isn't gay.
She explains, "Looking at the kind of women you see on TV, I wouldn't think people would find someone like me attractive, but a lot of girls come up to me in clubs and say things like, 'I've got a boyfriend, but I'm attracted to you.' That's insane."
And the singer is also fed up with adoring female fans throwing their bras at her while she's performing onstage, because she wants them to love her for her music.
She tells Britain's Heat magazine, "It's the fact that they think I want their bras - that's what's weird about it. One girl in Toronto (Canada) stood there for ages with her boobs out. Everyone just thinks I'm a raging lesbian and I want to see everyone's boobs. Sorry, I'm not.
"I knew that was going to happen. I'm not bothered by it. It was obvious that was what a lot of my fan base would be. I don't care who comes to the gigs or who likes the music, as long as it's for the music and not because they fancy you. That's a s**t reason to come to a gig."
