Will Young - Will Young's porn addiction

Will Young was addicted to porn.

The gay singer admits he isn't in the right emotional state to be in a relationship because he has been so unhappy, but couldn't help himself from looking at x-rated videos online.

He said: ''Addictions can be anything. Last year I moved into my new house, my album went to number one and I was miserable. And it doesn't even help when you have loads of money.

''I'd buy houses and get nothing from it. Bought cars - got nothing from it. I've gone out and spent £5,000 in Selfridges - and nothing. I don't even wear the stuff. All those things I thought would bring me happiness, don't.

''It never moved into sex addiction. For me, it was love addiction and fantasy. I was probably addicted to porn. Yeah, I have [the safe search browser now].

''But I'm always scared of commitment. I was basically traumatised in relationships. I've been single for five years. It's five, I've got some serious s**t to sort out. There's no way I could have a relationship.''

The 'Jealousy' hitmaker admits the last 12 months have been ''horrendous'' because he has been in the grips of depression.

He told Style magazine: ''It's been horrendous. I had to go - and wanted to go - on pills. My second time. The first time I wasn't so aware.

''It got to the stage last year where I thought I was on top of work, that I'd find a boyfriend and everything would be all right. But something was going wrong.''

Will thinks his problems stem from the ''shame'' he has felt about being gay.

He explained: ''What I've realised is that growing up knowing I was gay from a young age, I always felt extremely ashamed. It's a cliche but it's true.

''I've only just realised how s**t that's made me feel about myself for a very, very long time.''
