The first step to truly living a good and fearless life, is accepting responsibility for your actions.
Jann Arden is opening up about her sexuality. The celebrated Canadian singer-songwriter sat down with ET Canada’s Carlos Bustamante to discuss her new sitcom, “JANN”, and revealed why it was important for her to represent the LGBTQ community on screen.
“That, for sure, mirrors my own life,” Arden says of her character’s bisexuality. “I, as a teenager, grew up with boyfriends and girlfriends. I remember crying once over a girlfriend that had broken up [with me], and I was crying to my mom on the phone, and my dad was at the other end of the phone — this is a concrete construction guy — and he said, ‘Honey, we would love you if you were pink with purple spots.’
That was the end of it. They said, ‘We’re always here to talk to you,’ and my mom said to me at the dinner table — I remember her grabbing my wrists — and she said, ‘You are a completely normal person.’ I had that. So for me…that’s the way I’ve lived my life.”
