Clive Davis Talks About Bisexuality

Clive Davis has a new autobiography coming out. This replaces his old autobiography he wrote before which is now out of print. In his new book which is extremely long or at least feels that way, Clive talks about himself a lot. He also name drops every name in the record industry and how without him they would have been failures. In the book he also discusses his bisexuality which he has never discussed before. Clive says that since 1985 he has exclusively dated men and that he wanted to discuss it before but couldn't.

I'd read this. I'm sure he has lots of interesting stories to tell.

If you've dated one gender for over 25yrs, are you bisexual?

Meanie Reese said...

Aww, Clive! Some of us already knew! ;)

PuggleWug said...

If you are still sexually attracted to the other gender as well, I would say you are bisexual.

Meanie Reese said...

Puggles is correct. ;)

I went to the Grammy tribute to Whitney Houston at the end of last year. He attended with his wife - it was announced by one of the hosts and they were given a standing ovation.

Amber said...

Off-topic, but a good post on which to bring it up: On my way into the office this morning I saw a license plate that was ### GMD, and in my head I went, "GAY MIDGET DWARF! GAY MIDGET DWARF!!"

Just had to share. And good for Clive!

Cleodacat said...

Wait, wait, wait...He's exclusivly dating men since 1985 and married to a woman?

Frufra said...

@Amber - ha! I drove by a bank the other day; their sign simply says RCB (Regional Commerce Bank?), but in my head, I said, "Hey, Rejected Care Bear!"

Could be signs that we may be a little over-involved in our CDaN lives? Nah, no way :-).

Tuxedo Cat said...

This is going to be one hell of a read. Wow. I wonder why he wasn't able to write the book before. Maybe he was waiting for someone to pass away?

discoflux said...

Frufra & Amber - I know what you mean! I was flipping through the channels the other day and Barton Fink was on one of the movie channels and I automatically thought of our Barton. lol

Renoblondee said...

@Cleodacat Right?

Christopher Cruz said...

He used to like girls?!

MISCH said...

It's called GAY Clive....no shame.

prolixe said...

I read that headline as "Clive Owen is a sexy beast" and said HELL YEAH, I agree with this guy!

Need more coffee....

Meanie Reese said...

Um...Prolixe, I believe you might need something a wee bit stronger!!! LOL

chachi said...

Ha! Amber - only to be made better if you'd driven by the car and T.C. himself had been at the wheel!! (because secretly he loves his delightful moniker! :)

just curious said...

He has a wife and adult children.Its a known " secret" that Clive was gay.His wife understands.

hollywood dime said...

He talks about himself a lot? It is an autobiography, who is he supposed to talk about in it Mickey Mantle?

Amber said...

@disco - I SAW THAT TOO!! lol

@chachi - hahaha I kinda hoped it would be ;P

timebob said...

he's 80 if you still want to get your freak on at 80 then I say you can do it with whomever you want to.

The wife gets the perks and respect of being Mrs. Davis everybody wins!

auntliddy said...

I'm filing this right under 'no shit sherlock'- or perhaps,'who cares?'

Dale hale said...

"Clive talks about himself a lot". Gee thats a shocker- it is an autobiography- what were you expecting Enty?

Taracu said...

I want CDAN vanity plates!

Jazzy said...

Yay, good for him!

NomNom83 said...

Wonder how many Clive blinds Enty will now be able to reveal.

sylmarillion said...

Well gee Enty - is he supposed to talk about the weather?

MontanaMarriott said...

And in worst kept secret in history goes..... Who's next Diller, Klein, Geffen?

Li said...

Wait what? He has a wife? Is she his beard because NY Post says he's been in a relationship with a man for the past 7 years and before that another man for 13 years, it doesn't mention a wife.

MalibuBarbie said...

Clive divorced his second and last wife in '85. He's been in an LTR with his current partner since '04. They travel and attend events together. It's been one of the worst kept 'secrets' in the industry for decades! Glad he's finally halfway out.

Sherry said...

Yeah I'm with all of you who think the talking about yourself a lot seems par for the course in an autobiography. I'll bet this is a good read though.(Adds it to list)

dragon said...

I thought he was already out. I dont think he bi. He gay.

caralw said...

He's been screwing men since the 70s. Read the book "Please Kill Me."

Also, Kelly Clarkson took issue to what he wrote about her.

I'm on Team Kelly.

prolixe said...

@Meanie - truly! Today is my Monday, should just rename it espresso day.

@caralw - very interesting, thanks for the link!

The Black Cat said...

I guess he has lived a lie most of his life, not surprised he has a selective memory. Good for Kelly for setting the record straight.

Agent**It said...

caralw, great link !

Flora Goforth said...

Clive, No1curr.

Henriette said...

It's always "bisexual" before admitting to being gay. Elton John did the exact same thing. I don't know why there is a rest stop at being bisexual.

FlirtyChick74 said...

Who cares. It's too damn late.

PuggleWug said...

Wow, he was a major dick to Kelly! So happy an asshole like Clive didn't slow her down! It looks like I may be the only one who had no idea about his sexual preference. I never found him interesting enough to learn more about him, I suppose.

Anna Nonymous said...

Um not to split hairs but exclusively dating men for years means your gay, sorry Clive.
