English singer Morrissey has opened up
about his first serious relationship with a man.
In his memoir Autobiography, the
54-year-old Morrissey, the former Smiths frontman, wrote about his
relationship with Jake Owen Walters.
“Jake and I neither sought nor needed
company other than our own for the whirlwind stretch to come,”
Morrissey wrote, as the Guardian
reported. “Indulgently Jake and I test how far each of us can go
before 'being dwelt in' causes cries of intolerable struggle, but our
closeness transcends such visitations.”
Over the weekend, Morrissey expanded on
the relationship, explaining that he's not gay.
“Unfortunately, I am not homosexual,”
he wrote in a note posted on True
to You, a Morrissey fansite. “I am attracted to
humans,” he said, then added, “But, of course … not many.”
