Rollins: 'Stop Questioning My Sexuality'

Punk icon HENRY ROLLINS is furious when his sexuality is questioned - because he's never met anyone as blatantly "un-gay" as himself.

The former BLACK FLAG frontman is constantly being interviewed by homosexual magazines and is weary of denying rumours he's gay because he believes his tough appearance and heterosexual lovelife speaks for itself.

He complains, "I get interviewed by gay magazines at least six times a year and the first question is always, 'Are you gay?'. No. 'Are you sure?'. Yes.

"I ask why there's such a desire for me to be gay and they say, 'Because your hair's short, you're in shape, you're hot and you're smart.'

"In America it's a put down, like, 'Oh he's such a f**king fairy'. So here I am with the tattoos and a thick neck, talking s**t. God, if you only saw how un-gay I am. I've never had a homosexual experience - and I could have had all the ones I wanted."
