Morrissey - Morrissey finally admits he's gay?

Morrissey has seemingly finally admitted he's gay.

The former Smiths frontman has put an end to speculation about his sexuality in his new tell-all book 'Autobiography', revealing his first same-sex relationship was with a man named Jake Walters in 1994, when the musician was in his 30s.

He writes: ''For the first time in my life the eternal 'I' becomes 'we,' as, finally, I can get on with someone ... Jake and I neither sought not needed company other than our own for the whirlwind stretch to come. Indulgently Jake and I test how far each of us can go before 'being dwelt in' causes cries of intolerable struggle, but our closeness transcends such visitations.''

While Morrissey never explicitly states they were lovers, he depicts the tender nature of their relationship, reminiscing about being photographed with his head ''resting on Jake's exposed belly'' or his friend bringing him tea in the bath.

He also recalled an incident when their romance was questioned by a member of the public, writing: '' 'Well,' says the woman in the British Airways lounge, 'You're either very close brothers or lovers.' 'Can't brothers be lovers?' I imprudently reply - always ready with the pointlessly pert, whether sensible or not.''

The 'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out' hitmaker also admitted he wasn't sexually attracted to girls as a teenager and was missing the ''electrifying'' chemistry with the female sex.

He said: ''Girls remained mysteriously attracted to me. and I had no idea why, since although each fumbling foray hit the target, nothing electrifying took place, and I turned a thousand corners without caring ... Far more exciting were the array of stylish racing bikes that my father would bring home.''
