In a 2012 interview with US Weekly, Snooki calls herself bisexual. She says, “I would consider myself bi. I’ve done stuff with girls before. But I would never be with a girl because I like…penis. But I’ve experimented.” So basically she likes hooking up with girls but not on a long-term basis?

I have no question in my mind about being bisexual. But I’m also a hypocrite: I would never date a girl who was bisexual, because that means they also sleep with men, and men are so dirty that I’d never want to sleep with a girl who had slept with a man.” Wait, what? Megan Fox is married to Brian Austin Green, so she can sleep with men but the women she sleeps with can’t?

Hans Christian Andersen
There has been some evidence that Hans Christian Anderson was bisexual. He had crushes on both women and men, even writing love letters to men.

Do you mean have I had sexual relationships with women? Then the answer is no.’ But obviously, that didn’t make it.” So this can be a little confusing because what type of relationships did she have with women or was she just back-tracking?
