Molko said,’I’m questioning people’s reasons for sleeping with someone of the same sex.In the same way that heroin is very hip today,being bisexual seems to be very chic.It’s an exploration into somebody’s misogyny yet heartfelt.It’s angry,nasty,insulting and completely politically incorrect.’
‘And it all breaks down at the role reversal got the muse in my head she’s universal.’
