MEGA MUSIC MOGUL CLIVE DAVIS ADMITS TO BEING “BISEXUAL,” SAYS HE NEVER FELT ASHAMED
RELEASES HIS MEMOIR ENTITILED: THE SOUNDTRACK OF MY LIFE
The man that so many people love and admire to be like. Clive Davis has had a legendary professional career in the music business. Now at the age of 80 he is making an intimate personal revelation that he is bisexual.
The longtime record producer, who was married and divorced twice, has spent the past 20 years in relationships with two men, a doctor for 13 years, and an unnamed partner for the past seven yrs, he reveals in a new memoir, “The Sound Track Of My Life.”
“For over 50 years I never had sex with a male. I wasn’t repressed. I had very good sexual relationships with women,” he tells ABC’s Nightline
The Nightline interviewer, Cynthia McFadden, pushed Davis on the issue of bisexuality, asking him about the old adage that people are “either gay, straight or lying.”
“I’m not lying,” Davis said. “Bisexuality exists.”
McFadden then asked if Davis felt ashamed after first sleeping with a man. “I never felt shame, no,” he replied. “I felt puzzled. The subject of bisexuality really needs much more discussion. It’s a status that does exist.”
Davis said his current partner attends industry events and travels with him, as any partner would, but he declined to reveal his identity in order to protect his privacy.
Davis, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, ran companies including Columbia Records, Arista Records, J Records and RCA Music Group. He is credited with launching or boosting the careers of Aretha Franklin, Rod Stewart, Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, and Jennifer Hudson, and many others.
