Clive Davis, a longtime well-respected music executive who is responsible for the careers of artists such as Whitney Houston & Jennifer Hudson has come out of the closet. In his new memoir Clive admits he enjoys getting down with the ladies and the fellas!
Clive Davis’ new memoir, The Soundtrack of My Life, is full of inside stories from throughout his famed career. But the biggest revelation is a personal one: For the first time, the 80-year-old record executive discusses his “bisexual life.”
Davis, who is twice divorced, remains close to his family, which includes three sons, a daughter and six grandchildren, and to friends, with whom he vacations regularly. Soundtrack’s aforementioned personal revelation acknowledges “something that my children and close friends have always known, but that I knew I would need to discuss in a biography”: He considers himself bisexual.
“After my second marriage failed, I met a man who was also grounded in music. Having only had loving relationships and sexual intimacy with women, I opened myself up to the possibility that I could have that with a male, and found that I could.”
Davis is currently involved with another man (who isn’t in show business), “but I never stopped being attracted to women. Bisexuality is misunderstood; the adage is that you’re either straight or gay or lying, but that’s not my experience. To call me anything other than bisexual would be inaccurate.” – Rolling Stone
At this day in age nothing seems to shock me anymore about anything! And I mean anyone! I commend Clive for coming clean even when he didn’t have to. I can’t help to say but I really wonder what Whitney Houston would have to say about this…..Interesting!
