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.

RS: WHAT?

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.

4 Remarks

  1. I hope he is. Most people are gay, hopefully, wouldn’t be the rude individual that Stewart is. What is rude? A person who has had no qualms about leaving a waitress in tears because something doesn’t suit his tastes completely? A person whose personal hygiene is known to leave something to be desired?

    a correction to the above, Greg.

  3. The rumor started way back when I was in High School, circa 1977/78 when, “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy” Came out. That along with David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen were lovers. Amamzing how urban myths spread, now even worse because on the www. Remember the Richard Gere gerbel rumour, that it was stuck up his bumm. Everyone had a friend who had a sister who had a cousin that worked in the ER and would swear it happend. Cracks me up this is still floaring around.

  4. If I were straight, I would certainly never admit it!
