Christine and the Queens has detailed her concerns when it comes to artists such as Taylor Swift utilising LGBTQ stars as a 'super-fancy accessory.'
Revealing all in the November issue for Cosmopolitan UK, the French singer, 31, expressed her 'mixed feelings' when it came to American singer's You Need to Calm Down video which featured stars from RuPaul’s Drag Race as well as Queer Eye's Fab Five.
Christine revealed: 'I’m conflicted. I guess somewhere, young gay men might watch that Taylor Swift video and feel a sense of relief. Five years on [since she entered the industry] and you can tell that being queer has been glossed out as this super-fancy accessory.'

The hitmaker, who know simply goes by the name Chris, continued: 'You can tell that the queer aesthetic is being used to sell things.
'The mainstream needs that life because it’s so vibrant. But I think the core of the queer aesthetic cannot be sold.'
When it comes to promoting music, the songstress, real name Héloïse Adelaïde Letissier, also admitted she was disheartened when she first changed her name to Chris, with some accusing her of doing it as a marketing too.
