Gavin Rossdale Admits Gay Fling With Marilyn

by at .

Kim Kardashian says she relates to gay youth, but this is probably a better example of a celebrity whose early dalliances may strike a chord with some teens.

Gavin Rossdale, father of two, rock star and husband of the coolest chick alive, never seemed like the cross-dressing type. But apparently he used to be.

Gwen Stefani's better half admits he hooked up with cross-dressing '80s pop singer Marilyn back in his formative years. Now that we didn't see coming.

This is Marilyn. He/she bedded Gavin Rossdale in the '80s.

"When you're 17, Jesus Christ. I don't think there's anything strange about any form of ... you're learning about life," the Bush frontman tells Details.

"It's a part of growing up. That's it. No more, no less."

While Marilyn says it lasted years, Rossdale says it was a one-shot deal. "That was it," he says. "You have to know what you like, and I know what I like."

Rossdale and Marilyn's relationship was first revealed by Boy George back in 1995. However, this is the first time Rossdale has talked publicly about it.

Why now? "I think at the outset there was a sort of fear ... that was right at the bginning of Bush, and I didn't want it to be part of it," he admits.

"It felt like a cheap shot. I was like, 'I'm not getting involved.' I never wanted to appear closed about it, but [try to avoid] the glare of a tabloid world."

Good for Gavin for being secure enough to get this one off his chest.
