Sex Lives of Famous Rock Stars

This article describes two of the most popular artists of all time who were not hesitant to talk about their sexuality.

Elvis Presley

At his peak, Elvis was criticized by American parents and religious fundamentalists for promoting obscenity through his singing and dancing. Although it cannot be denied that many of his songs were suggestive, it is surprising to note that many people suggest that Elvis seldom slept with women.

He was shy as a school boy and therefore didn’t have lot of luck with women. Moreover, it is acknowledged that most of his girl friends in the industry such as Natalie Wood and Judy Tyler had nothing serious going on with him; it was just a promotional ploy.

However, that is not to say that King has a clean record. His relation with Priscilla Ann Wagner came under sharp criticism as she was 14 and he was 24 when they first met. A lot of analysts agree that Presley’s unconventional preferences were due to the troubles he had with his mother.

Freddie Mercury

Freddie was one of the most gifted singers, musicians, and stage performers of all the time. He is best known for his 4-octave vocal range, as well as his songwriting abilities, which shot Queen to worldwide fames in the 80s.

However, the glam-rock icon had another claim to fame as well. During the peak of his career, Freddie openly admitted that he was bisexual. However, this admittance was not as clear as many critics wanted it to be. His lover, Jim Hutton, seldom received any media coverage.

Mercury has stated in his interviews that he had experienced transitions in his sexuality during his school years where he described his experiences as “school pranks”.  But as critics remained confused about Mercury’s claims, many gay publications praised him for his stand on personal freedom as far as sexual orientation is concerned.

Tragically, Mercury died of AIDS in 1992.

George Michael

Here is another star who took some time before disclosing his orientation to the general public. The star has enjoyed success both a solo artists and earlier as part of the pop due Wham! In an interview, Michal stated that he did have loose relations with several women during the 80s.

From his teenage years, Michael knew about his inclinations towards the same gender, and he talked about the possibility of being bisexual with his close friends. However, as his tenure with Wham was ending, he started to become aware of the fact that he was actually gay.

His first relation after going solo was with Brazilian dress-designer Anselmo Feleppa. The two met in 1991, but couple of months passed before it was discovered that Feleppa was diagnosed with AIDS. He died two years later.

“Jesus to a Child”, one of the greatest hits by George Michael is a tribute to Feleppa. After grieving his loss for 3 years, Michael entered into a relation with Kenny Gross in 96’. They had a serious relation until 2009. Michael and Gross were even prepared to register for civilian partnership in 2005, but the prospect was brushed aside due to negative publicity.
