Legendary Music Icon Clive Davis Comes Out As Bisexual
A legendary producer responsible for bringing forth the musical icons of Whitney Houston and Kelly Clarkson has declared that he is a bisexual man in his new memoir The Soundtrack of My Life. Here’s more:
“He says being bisexuality is “misunderstood,” noting that he’s “never stopped being attracted to women.”
“The adage is that you’re either straight or gay or lying, but that’s not my experience,” he adds. “To call me anything other than bisexual would be inaccurate.”
Davis will speak in greater length about his sexuality in a Feb. 19 interview with Nightline’s Cynthia McFadden. He is quoted as telling McFadden that he has had two committed same-sex relationships over the past 20 years, although he does not reveal the name of his current partner of seven years.
“For over 50 years I never had sex with a male,” he tells McFadden. “It wasn’t repressed. I had very good sexual relationships with women.”
