Well Kylie, if "English" = "gay" then whatever nationality you are must = "dumb cunt".

Kev, you're as big a twit as Kylie. Angela Bowie (Dave's American ex, for those not in the know) allegedly happened upon Dave in bed with Jagger. She's a bit of a whack job, so I wouldn't put much into what she says.

Anonymous-I agree. Bowie's a brilliant guy. The 70s would have been kind of dull without him.

Accordingly to Angie, Mick and David had a thing one night, but they were both bisexual (Angie and David) by that time, she didn't care at all. No, she's not a whack job.

Never with Rod Stewartm fir God's sake! By the way, David is not bisexual, he was just experimenting.

Wears make-up to sell CDs, but would never put a dick in his mouth.

He is as straight (not as pedo) as Gary Glitter.
  TODD WINDSOR @ 2012-04-09 1 up,0 down
David in his heyday, was completely bisexual, as was his wife Angie and I knew them when he came to Hollywood to do a gig at the Universal Ampitheatre and he was absolutely brilliant as a performer, and Angie created the "looks" which made glam rock. He had a great voice which was started as a young child in choir groups and was educated and walked around naked. He was largely endowed and tantalized the audiences by wearing no underpants and sheer fabrics.Angie stayed and tried for a film career and eventually they split up.She was very very creative and original. She just lacked star quality.

bowie is bisexual, not gay.
  Zane @ 2012-04-18 55 up,22 down
Really? Really people? He has been married to two different women and has one child with each of them. Sure he was in relationships with men, but that doesn't mean he's gay. It's pretty obvious that he is, or rather was (due to the fact that he himself has stated that his sexual preference has changed over time) bisexual.
  Geoff @ 2012-04-21 28 up,45 down
David Bowie has had sex with men. As far as this website is concerned, he is gay. The face he's also had sex with women is completely irrelevant. The website isn't "Gay or Straight (or Bi, or got drunk at a frat party at Oklahoma State one weekend)."
  Ash @ 2012-04-30 40 up,20 down
David Bowie was indeed Bi-sexual for a long time there, but he is not gay. David has a beautiful wife and daughter whom he both loves very much.
  Mike @ 2012-05-18 13 up,35 down

  Gemma @ 2012-07-01 1 up,0 down
Bowie is/was bisexual. It's quoted somewhere that he met his first wife Angie because they were both having sex with the same man.
  @ 2012-07-08 30 up,22 down
David Bowie announced to Groove magazine that he was straight and the whole Bi think has been a marketing ploy sine the Ziggy Days. He was serious

Either way he is a phenomenal artist. I think he would think I was hot no matter what. :)

I hate how people says "who cares if X it's gay?" "I couldn't care less" "That's not people's business" so what you're doing in this page. Sorry it's everybody's business if you jump in other mens and say you're bisexual in every interview when you're young.
  Kayla @ 2012-08-31 18 up,4 down
He's bisexual; he's not gay. Married to a woman named Iman. They just had their 20th wedding anniversary on June 6th 2012.

Bi sexual is the gay who loves boys and men? Bowie is bi...
  Jim @ 2012-11-01 21 up,10 down
Bowie himself admitted that he had an encounter with a man and he said "It was the worst mistake I ever made", so I think he's straight despite some youthful experimentation.
  ec @ 2012-11-19 1 up,0 down
David was most delicious in Lady Stardust. Sexual orientation? Who cares!
  KID @ 2012-12-01 24 up,5 down
Bowie did an interview several decades ago where he, in his words, "came out" as straight. He said there was a lot of pressure in the 70s to experiment like everyone else because the androgynous/bi image was a real selling point at the time, so he went along with it but was never comfortable with it.
  Dazz @ 2012-12-06 26 up,9 down
I'm just in awe over "Ash"'s comment: "he was bisexual for a while, but he's not gay. He has a wife and child he loves very much." "Ash" has no comprehension whatsoever of sexuality, particularly homosexuality or bisexuality. Let me clue you in: You're not "bisexual for a while." Arguments remain on whether you're born or raised into your sexuality (for me, for example, it's the latter - I was molested as a child by my father, and now find purely sexual attraction to men and romantic and sexual attraction to women). Regardless, your sexuality does not change. You don't hook up with Mick Jagger one day, wake up the next, marry a female model, and never find yourself attracted to men again, as you're suggesting Bowie did. That's ridiculous. Kinsey said that sexuality is not black and white, it's shades of grey - I agree, and feel that NO-ONE is purely hetero- or homo-sexual. That's up for debate, too, though. Anyway, your point about his love for his wife and kids proving he's straight is almost as ridiculous as your absurd hypothesis of his mutating sexuality (hope I'm not using too many big words for you - for real, not [entirely] meaning to be nasty). You're implying that, because he loves his wife and child, he can't be attracted to men? How many men have you heard of who do other dudes on the down low? Most of them love their wives and families completely - they're just deprived of something they sexually crave. That's why my plan is to get married, have a fairly open relationship with my wife, and have a hot pool boy who we can both have fun with, maybe together. Anyway, let's not let me get carried away here. POINT IS. Loving your family doesn't make you straight, or gay, or anything. If a man was married to another man who he loved very much, it doesn't mean he might not cheat with a woman. Bisexuals are bisexuals, and David Bowie is, was, and always will be bisexual.

Dazz you are wrong. Sexuality is fluid for many people, not fixed as it is for some.

It basically goes like THIS , .. .

In 1971 he first hinted at it when he said in an interview "They can make up their minds about me when I'm caught in bed with Raquel Welch's husband". Then in 72 he used the famous three letter word to describe himself "I'm gay and always have been" in another interview. In 76 he gave his most explicit interview yet on the subject, calling himself "bisexual" for the first time ("I suppose it's the best thing that's ever happened to me. Fun too." ) and, in the same interview, related a supposed incidence of a specific ( though anonymous ) homosexual encounter ( "It was with some pretty boy in school who I took home and neatly f***ed in my bedroom. My first thought was if I ever got sent to prison I'll know how to keep happy!" ). Then, in 78, he stated that it was a ruse, .. just another part of the outrageous and scandalous theatrical persona he was publically enacting "Lord no! That was a lie. They gave me that image, and I stuck to it for a few years". Later, in 83, he continued to "deny" it and even began sounding rather more repentant about it, calling it "the worst mistake I ever made" ( this may have been influenced by his newfound relationship with his son and growing responsibility as a single parent ). Finally, in the 90's, he stated that "My activity ran the gamut to everything, but it was mainly just experimental. I'd try ANYTHING once". The world may NEVER know for certain!

I have news for people. Just cause a man is married to a woman does not mean he is straight. My ex husband said he was gay when we married and was trying to show people that he was straight all the while lying to him self. Caution to women men who care to much about there appearance huge sign. I hate gays one because of my ex husband 2 my ex gave me the worst std. And thirdly they all lie.
