Gavin Rossdale Says He Experimented with Gay Sex, Calls it ‘Part of Growing Up’

Former Bush frontman and husband of Gwen Stefani Gavin Rossdale tells Details that reports he had a relationship with drag pop singer Marilyn when he was a teen are true.

Rossdale Details: 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?

Gavin Rossdale: 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.

Details: So it was just a one-time experimentation?

Gavin Rossdale: Yeah. That was it. You have to know what you like, and I know what I like.

Rossdale is reuniting Bush after an eight-year hiatus.
