Gavin Rossdale has spoken out about a part of his past that he hasn’t addressed before.
The 44-year-old rocker chatted with Details about the rumors of his relationship with gender bending British pop singer Marilyn. Check it:
Last year, the cross-dressing pop singer Marilyn revealed that he was romantically involved with you in your teens – an assertion Boy George first made in 1995. Why haven’t you talked about those claims? I think at the outset there was a sort of fear—that was right at the beginning of Bush, and I didn’t want it to be part of it. It felt like a cheap shot, so I was like, “I’m not getting involved.” I’ve never wanted to appear closed about it. It’s not something I’ve talked about really because it’s always been in the glare of a tabloid world. It’s just one of those things: Move on. When you’re 17, Jesus Christ. I don’t think there’s anything strange about any form of – you’re learning about life. It’s a part of growing up. That’s it. No more, no less.
So it was just a one-time experimentation? Yeah. That was it. You have to know what you like, and I know what I like.
Gavin’s interview appears in the November 2010 issue of Details, on newsstands Tuesday, October 19!
