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.
Don't mind us while we give that comment a big ol' eye-roll. If we had a dime for every time we heard the good ol' "It was a one-time experimentation thing" excuse, we'd be rolling in dough. We heard it just this last weekend. And the "it's just part of life" defense is tired, too, Gav. I wonder what Little Miss Tragic Kingdom has to say with Gavin's nasty cross-dresser lovin' ways. Only time will tell.
