Whitney Houston - "I'm Bisexual": Legendary Record Producer Clive Davis Reveals He's Had Relationships With Men

We look forward to the day when a person's sexual orientation is no longer cause for a headline, but equally will never fail to praise those who have the courage to be honest about their life. Music mogul, record legend, Clive Davis, who is responsible for the discovery of pop-music greats from Whitney Houston to Alicia Keys, has admitted to being bisexual in his newest memoir as well as in a new interview with Katie Couric, ABC news reports. 

Having been married and divorced twice, the revelation that Davis has had relationships with men will come as something of a surprise to many, but Davis hopes to encourage a culture of openness and great understanding regarding bisexuality, as it seems he feels many people don't think it "exists". "I'm not lying," Davis said. "[Bisexuality] does exist. For over 50 years I never had sex with a male. It wasn't repressed. I had very good sexual relationships with women." 

But, he continues, after his first drunken sexual experience with a man "I opened myself up to the possibility that I could have a relationship with a man as well as the two that I had with a woman." While he never felt shame for his bisexuality, he admits to being a little confused: "I felt puzzled. The subject of bisexuality really needs much more discussion. It's a status that does exist."

As well as his own life recorded in his latest book 'Soundtrack to My Life' there are also plenty of stories about the countless stars he has worked with over the past 50 long years of his incredible career (he now heads up Sony Entertainment, used to run CBS records and founded a label with Sean Combs), plus an entire chapter about the late Whitney Houston, whose death was a blow to the man who brought her to fame.
