Music mogul Clive Davis reveals that he is bisexual in his new memoir The Soundtrack of My Life. The 80-year-old opens up about dating both men and women and how a booze-fueled night during “the era of Studio 54” opened him up to the idea of being in a same-sex relationship.
“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.
I never stopped being attracted to women. Bisexuality is misunderstood; the adage is that you’re either straight or gay or lying, but that’s not my experience. To call me anything other than bisexual would be inaccurate.”
