Gavin Rossdale admits to fling with British singer Marilyn

Gavin-Rossdale-MarilynImage Credit: Noel Vasquez/Getty Images; Dave Hogan/Hulton Archive/Getty ImagesIn the November issue of Details, Bush lead singer Gavin Rossdale was asked about a long-rumored relationship with British pop star Marilyn. (He of the hit “Calling Your Name” song.) Fifteen years since the whispers started (Boy George actually is credited with first revealing a romance between Rossdale and Marilyn), Rossdale gave a clear answer, admitting that it was more of a one-time experimental fling than a true relationship.

“It’s not something I’ve talked about really because it’s always been in the glare of a tabloid world,” Rossdale said. “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.” And that’s that! Are you surprised Rossdale would come clean so many years later? Or was it about time? Let us know.

    Okay, Now I want to hear about any chick pop stars Gwen Stefani got down and dirty with in the 90′s. It is only fair to know.

    • Stillet-OD

      Is this why Gwen gussies up like a tranny? sorry Gwen no matter how much make-up and kitchy outfits you put together you could never match Marilyn’s original fabulousness. Much respect to Gavin for having the balls to come clean about this. To bad he had to marry a Tranny-wannabe though.

  • Craig

    Um, the URL is a bit misleading. This article has nothing to do with Marilyn Manson.

    • nunya

      LOL – great catch! A fling with Marilyn Manson would have been WAY more interesting for him to come clean about! :P

      • nykolus

        gross…

  • Stacie

    Hot.

  • Ceballos

    He’s a homo? That’s a no-no!

    • Flip

      You’re disgusting and evil.

    • john

      1st stage of closeted homosexuality is making fun of others

      • Bob

        So if I make fun of blacks does that make me black? Great logic moron.

    • nykolus

      more like a bo-mo…

  • Prunella Von Schleidlhaagen

    All I have to say is, YUM.

  • mimimimi

    He didn’t do anything wrong. What does he have to come clean about?

  • Flip

    Marilyn is a guy? Cuz Marilyn looks like a girl in that picture.

    • I think Marilyn is transgender?

    • whatevs

      Are we looking at the same picture?

  • Kae

    His life, his business. I don’t think he needed to clear anything up because what he’s done in his past is entirely his business.

  • Cam Newton

    Great. Now I’ll have to burn all my old Bush cds!

    • You sure were a big fan if a one time sexual encounter makes you burn your CDs.

      • Cam Newton

        I’m more of a fan of Jesus and the Bible!

      • Matt

        Cam,

        Did you know that MAN wrote the Bible? Do you know for a FACT that Jesus, who reportedly was about peace and love thy neighbor and or can’t you choose to go by ‘love the sinner, hate the sin?’

        Oh, that’s right, you choose to beleive what is an interpretation of a story in the OLD testament which has SO MANY OTHER things that you don’t follow. Why follow this?

    • lilian

      “Jesus and the Bible”? I don’t know that band…

  • DZ

    Ha! When I first looked at the pic of Marilyn, I thought, “that lady looks kind of manly.” Then I looked at his arms and realized why this is a story.

  • John

    Gwen Stefani makes up for any dating skeletons in his “ahem” closet.

  • Clete

    Who are these people? Why are they important? In Chile something of real importance is happening. A one night fling between two morons isn’t of any importance.

    • ger

      And when the Chilean Miners release their debut CD “Songs from the Hole” EW will cover it.

      • Maureen

        ZING! :D

    • Brett

      Why are you looking for world news on an ENTERTAINMENT website, Clete? Just as it’s doubtful this story would get much press on a news website, you’re probably not going to hear too much about Chliean miners at EW unless someone makes a movie about them.

  • Stephanie T.

    Gavin is not a homosexual. A homosexual likes men, he is (or was)bisexual like David Bowie was (or is). It is OLD news, and who cares? Gavin has not had a decent hit since his days with Bush.

    • Matt

      He had a ‘decent hit’ with “Love Remains The Same” not too long ago.

    • Chris

      That’s not true. “Love Remains the Same”.

    • Brett

      Yes, but he co-starred in “Constantine”. He’s on the bubble as an actor, now.

  • joe

    ewwwww. that is disgusting
