Rossdale Shrugs Off Marilyn Romance As 'Experimentation'

British rocker Gavin Rossdale has addressed 1980s pop star MARILYN's allegations the pair once enjoyed a gay romance - admitting the experience was "part of growing up".
Gay singer Boy George famously revealed Rossdale and singer Marilyn - real name Peter Robinson - were once an item, long before the rocker was famous as Bush's frontman.
The pair both denied the claims at the time - only for Marilyn to admit last year (09) that he was involved with Rossdale for five years, branding him the "love of his life" and admitting he only kept quiet to avoid damaging star's career.
Rossdale, who is married to Gwen Stefani and has two children with the singer, never addressed Marilyn's claims, but in a new interview with Details magazine he opens up about the same-sex liaison.
When asked why he never spoke out about the story, he tells the publication, "I think at the outset there was a sort of fear - that was right at the beginning of Bush, and I didn't want it to be part of it. It felt like a cheap shot, so I was like, 'I'm not getting involved.'
"I've never wanted to appear closed about it. It's not something I've talked about really because it's always been in the glare of a tabloid world. It's just one of those things: Move on. When you're 17, Jesus Christ. I don't think there's anything strange about any form of - you're learning about life. It's a part of growing up. That's it. No more, no less."
He is then asked by the journalist if it was a "a one-time experimentation", to which he replies, "Yeah. That was it. You have to know what you like, and I know what I like."
