Veteran music mogul Clive Davis is out with a tell-all memoir titled “The Soundtrack Of My Life,” and the juicy contents are ruffling feathers all over Hollywood. Read on for more about what is revealed in Clive’s new tell all book! Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here
Perhaps the biggest headline coming out of the memoir is that Clive Davis finally came out as bisexual, describing not only his first sexual encounter with a man, but also his subsequent fifteen year long term monogamous relationship with an unnamed male doctor.
The relationship ended in 2004, but Davis has no problem remembering the details, and sharing them with all of us. While not everyone who reads this book will be surprised by Davis’ bisexual confessions, the revelation has provided fodder for lots of tabloids over the past few weeks.
The other big story coming out of this memoir? Clive Davis and his apparent disdain for American Idol Winner Kelly Clarkson. Clive slams Kelly in the book, reportedly calling her a “S—-y writer,” and putting her down for her song-writing, as well as her career decisions.
Clarkson, never one to be pushed into a corner by anyone, fired back right away, saying: “I refuse to be bullied and I just have to clear up his memory lapses and misinformation for myself and for my fans,” she writes in her WhoSay post. “It feels like a violation. Growing up is awesome because you learn you don’t have to cower to anyone—even Clive Davis.”
Of course, the drama doesn’t end there. Davis fired back: ““I am truly very sorry that she has decided to take issue with what I know to be an accurate depiction of our time together,” Clive said.
The rest of the book? It contains some personal stories about Clive and other stars, but really nothing all that interesting or juicy. Mostly, the rest of the book is stories about how stars such as Whitney Houston, Leona Lewis, Toni Braxton, and more, wanted their careers to go a certain way, and wanted to make decisions about their career for themselves (such as song-writing), but Clive didn’t think it would be a good idea.
In a nutshell, the book is about stars being wrong and Clive Davis being right. Oh, and he gets along with rappers like Sean “Puffy” Combs, because he likes nice clothes and the finer things in life, just like rappers do. Sigh.
Personally, I read the book, and while the personal stories about the stars were interesting, I think Clive Davis writes in such a condescending tone, that I really couldn’t enjoy it. It is however, the talk of Hollywood right now, and creating buzz with all the media outlets, so if you are into celebrity news, you might want to check it out.
