Having fathered a child with Leonard Cohen's daughter, he's glad the baby was a girl because "hate to be attracted" to a son. "I don’t think it would happen," he apparently laughed in response. "[It's just that] when I'm old and he is 35 and gorgeous…Well he would probably look like me. And I would be like, "Oh my God! I’m falling in love with myself!"" (Note to Rufus: Not helping!)
He's glad he doesn't have a big gay following, adding that gay men have "terrible taste in music." (And we're sure that's going to increase his gay following.)
And that being gay has hampered his U.S. career. "If I had been somewhat more strategic and less honest and gone with an asexual or bisexual persona, I think I would have been given a lot more opportunity and attention," he said. "But that being said I feel that my public, who have been with me a while now, have been grateful and appreciative of my honesty and are loyal."
Maybe there's such a thing as being too honest?
