Sarah McLachlan squashed a few rumors about her sexuality in a new interview with PrideSource's Chris Azzopardi.

The 46-year-old Canadian singer-songwriter tells Azzopardi that while she's no stranger to kissing girls, she's nonetheless "pretty straight."

"Let me just put it this way: I've never had sex with a woman," McLachlan, who divorced her drummer, Ashwin Sood, in September 2008, revealed. "I've made out with more than one woman, but it just sort of happened. And there may have been alcohol involved with one of them."

Acknowledging her considerable lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) fanbase, McLachlan added, "I am such a strong advocate for gay and lesbian rights because I truly believe that we are all equal. We should be able to choose whom we love and how we love, and it's not anybody's goddamn business, really."

She singled out her lesbians fans in particular as "a really intelligent audience," before noting, "I don't even know how I could tell that, but I just remember this feeling of, wow, this is just a great, great audience."

Her new album, "Shine On," is due out May 6.
