Rod Stewart: “I’m as heterosexual as they come”
Yup, Katie Couric went there.
Daytime television’s newest talk show star had rocker Rod Stewart on her show this week and asked him to address a longstanding rumor during a “Fact or Fiction” segment with the audience.
KC: Fact or fiction? Rod once needed to get his stomach pumped after an encounter with sailors at a gay bar in San Diego.
Audience Member: Fact!
RS: Thank you, darling, thank you. Just winding me up aren’t you? This is actually what happened. I used to have this guy work for me, he was a gay publicist. He’s dead now so he might be watching. I had to fire him because he did something terrible, which I won’t go into. So, he wanted revenge so he started this rumor about me, and it was horrible because my kids were at school. So that is definitely not true.
KC: But it just kept going on and on and it became accepted, right?
RS: No, it was never accepted. I’m as heterosexual as they come.
