That is absolutely wrong .

Bowie claimed in 2002 that he was bisexual

Asked in 2002 by Blender whether he still believed his public declaration was the biggest mistake he ever made, he replied:



Interesting. [Long pause] I donít think it was a mistake in Europe, but it was a lot tougher in America. I had no problem with people knowing I was bisexual. But I had no inclination to hold any banners nor be a representative of any group of people. I knew what I wanted to be, which was a songwriter and a performer, and I felt that bisexuality became my headline over here for so long. America is a very puritanical place, and I think it stood in the way of so much I wanted to do.

He also had an affair with Mick Jagger for a very long period of time.
