The rocker admits when he was 17 year old, he got intimate with a cross-dressing 80s pop singer by the name of Marilyn. "When you're 17, Jesus Christ. I don't think there's anything strange about any form of—you're learning about life," Gavin tells the magazine.
"It's a part of growing up. That's it. No more, no less."
If you were wondering….yes, that’s the same Marilyn who came forward last year, claiming to have had a several-year romantic relationship with Rossdale, who claims it was just a one-time hookup.
“That was it,” says Rossdale. “You have to know what you like, and I know what I like.
He adds that he never wanted to talk about it back then because his career as frontman of Bush was just getting started. “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,” he explains. “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.”
It still takes a lot of courage to talk about it now! We’re glad Gavin is able to open up about his past—it’s obviously shaped who he is today, and now he’s happily married with kids.
Seems like slowly but surely, all of Rossdale’s skeletons are coming out of the closet—first the revelation of his love-child daughter Daisy Lowe, and now this!
