In the November issue of the unapologetically queer magazine, Details, musician Gavin Rossdale claims that he had sex with a tranny. Is Machinehead really about a mechanical dildo? I really hope not.
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.
Maybe I’m just different, but when I was 17, “I wish I had a dong in my mouth” never crossed my mind. Why? Because vagina was also invented. I don’t care if you have a wife and two kids, if you’ve even had someone touch your prostate who wasn’t approved by a medical board first, you’re gay. I don’t know how else to explain it. Be sure to check next month’s issue where Rossdale talks about his favorite episode of King of Cakes and his Rainbow Brite collection.
