Will Young's Gay 'Shame' Left Him Addicted To Porn

British pop star Will Young has said his 'shame' about being gay made him depressed, single and addicted to porn.

The singer began 2011 on a high as his latest album took the number one spot, but since then it has been a downward spiral of misery.

‘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,’ he said. ‘But something was going wrong. What I’ve realised is that growing up knowing I was gay from a young age, I always felt extremely ashamed. It’s a cliché 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.’ 
The 33-year-old says the ‘trauma’ of  relationships has left him single for the past five years.  
‘It doesn’t even help when you have loads of money,’ he added.  
‘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.’  
He added: ‘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].’
