Singer Rufus Wainwright recently said of turning 40 that he wishes he were 19 again, and a slut.

Wainwright married Jorn Weisbrodt in 2012 in New York. Together they are raising daughter Viva Katherine Wainwright.

In an interview with gay glossy Frontiers L.A., Wainwright discussed Vibrate, his upcoming album, and turning 40.

“I have to correct you,” Wainwright told Editor-in-Chief Stephan Horbelt, “because [Vibrate is] not quite a 'greatest hits.' It's more of a 'best of.' People keep saying 'greatest hits,' but there would only be two tracks.”

“In terms of not having any massive radio hits, I've managed to maintain a level of integrity and a level of privacy and still get well-paid for what I do. So, I'm fine with the 'best of.'”

On turning 40, Wainwright said: “It's fantastic, if you're able to appreciate what you've learned over the years. There are still very gay moments when I wish I was 19 and totally, blissfully ignorant – a slut.”

“A big, gay ol' slut,” he emphasized with a laugh.
