Lauren Jauregui says people make too big of a deal about sexuality.

The Fifth Harmony singer came out as bisexual in an open letter in November but she is surprised that people are so interested in other people's sexuality because she believes it is simply about having a ''soul connection''.

She told the Huffington Post: ''I was pointing out all the different ways I personally felt attacked, and that is a very big part of it. That's definitely part of who I am. I feel like people make such a big deal out of sexuality. It's so weird to me, because at the end of the day it's just about soul connection. It's just about who you connect with.''

In her open letter Lauren, 20, also hit out at those who voted for Donald Trump in last year's US presidential election and she urged teens who are struggling to come out not to let the current political climate get to them.

She advised: ''When you feel comfortable enough or when you find that person that makes you feel comfortable enough, just go into it and embrace it. Don't be scared of it. Don't allow yourself to be hard on yourself or feel like you're crazy or wrong. Especially with the administration that's coming in, they're really going to try to make you feel like you're crazy or you're not normal or you're wrong. You're going to hear so many people around you that are fueled by that - fueled by the validity of their hatred. That's not on you. That's on them and their hearts. You just keep being you and stay true to yourself because that's what going to make you feel free.

''What I would tell everyone is: Don't lose your sense of individuality. Don't lose your love for yourself, and how much you've grown, and how far you've come. Do not allow this bulls**t to change that or to take that away from you. You're still loved. We love you, we support you, we're here and we're all together in this. Nobody's going to take our voice away.''

Meanwhile, Lauren's bandmate Camila Cabello quit Fifth Harmony last year, leaving the group to continue on as foursome and Lauren insists that the ''energy is really supportive'' in the band right now.

She said: ''We're all just really at a place where we're exploring ourselves. We're getting older and we're exploring our songwriting right now. I think it's really cool though because the energy's really supportive and solid and just really great.''

However, she had a stark warning for those planning to enter the music business, saying: ''Read your contracts. Up and down, left and right. Hire five different lawyers to read it for you if you have to, but read your f***ing contracts.''
