Clive Davis Comes Out: Music Mogul Reveals He's Bisexual In New Memoir
The music mogul who played key roles in the careers of superstars like Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys and Kelly Clarkson has come out as bisexual. In his new memoir, The Soundtrack of My Life, 80-year-old Clive Davis acknowledges his bisexuality, which he describes as "something that my children and close friends have always known, but that I knew I would need to discuss in a biography," according to USA Today. The Chief Creative Officer of Sony Music Entertainment, who is twice divorced, writes, "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." 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."
