Gavin Rossdale’s gay experience was a one-off

When Gavin Rossdale was 17, he and a guy calling himself Marilyn were in a sexy relationship. Gavin finally opened up about it in Details. Details is a gay magazine, right? Anyway, Gavin says it was a one-time experimentation and that it’s part of growing up. What?

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.

I must still have some growing up to do because I’ve yet to bang a dude. It must be a rite of passage into adulthood and a sign of maturity that I’m not aware of. Makes sense because I still giggle whenever someone says “penis”. Hehehehe.

This heterosexual OBSESSION with all things gay has reached PATHETIC proportions.

If heterosexuals dislike gay people so much, why so obsessed?

Y’all need to get laid.
