Marlon Brando

Though some of the characters he’s played would never cross over, Marlon Brando was quite open about his sexuality. And though he was honest during his life, several biographers further exposed details about his sexuality. But in an interview, Brando said, “Like a large number of men, I, too, have had homosexual experiences and I am not ashamed. I have never paid much attention to what people think about me.”

Azealia Banks

It’s no secret that Azealia Banks speaks her mind, often to her own detriment. But one of the few times where her candor didn’t result in a Twitter beef was when she told Rolling Stone, kind of as an aside, that she’s bisexual. When they asked her about appealing to her gay fans, she said, “I mean I’m bisexual, so it makes sense. But I don’t want to be that girl who says all gays necessarily hang out together, of course! I have people say to me, ‘Oh wow, my friend is gay too,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, so?”


Amy Winehouse

Even though she was married to a man, according to The Advocate, allegedly Winehouse told her friends that “I like girls as well. I have had relationships with other women but that doesn’t mean I don’t still love Blake. There is something about being with a woman that is very satisfying. I don’t care what people think about me being bi– I do what feels good.”

Angelina Jolie

Before she was a wife and mother Angelina Jolie had a reputation for waving her freak flag high. And in an interview with OK! Magazine, she explained: “I have loved women in the past and slept with them.  I think if you love and want to pleasure a woman, particularly if you are a woman yourself, then certainly you know how to do things a certain way.”

Jillian Michaels

I don’t know too much about Jillian Michaels but the “Biggest Loser” coach told Ladies Home Journal Let’s just say I believe in healthy love. If I fall in love with a woman, that’s awesome. If I fall in love with a man, that’s awesome. As long as you fall in love…it’s like organic food. I only eat healthy food, and I only want healthy love!”

Lady Gaga

In 2010, Lady Gaga told Barbara Walters that she is indeed bisexual and she doesn’t just use her sexuality as some type of ploy or gimmick. It’s been a part of who she is for some time now. In her song, “Poker Face,” she says “bluffin’ with my muffin.” She explains it’s about being with a man but fantasizing about being with a woman. Gaga says that though she has only been in love with men, she has had sexual experiences with women.


Drew Barrymore

In 2003, Drew Barrymore told Contact MagazineDo I like women sexually? Yeah, I do. Totally. I have always considered myself bisexual… I love a woman’s body. I think a woman and a woman together are beautiful, just as a man and a woman together are beautiful. Being with a woman is like exploring your own body, but through someone else.”

Kim Zolciak

I had no idea about this one but Big Poppa wasn’t Kim Zolciak’s only relationship. Before marrying Kroy, she dated DJ Tracy Young, a woman. In 2010, when Life & Style asked her about being a parent, in the midst of being in a same sex relationship, she responded, “I’m among the millions of parents who have been in a gay or lesbian relationship. It hasn’t been an easy road lately, but I feel there are no mistakes in my life. Everything happens for a reason. To have the opportunity to speak for myself and to have people understand what I’m going through is really special. I myself was confused and scared at first. Being able to speak from my heart and get this all out, it’s a huge relief for me.”

People were shocked back in 2009 when Fergie admitted to The Advocate that she has had sexual experiences with women but Fergie said that she’s always been that woman and has always been very open about her bisexuality.



This one is not really a surprise is it? Snooki was wild back in her “Jersey Shore” days. And in 2012, she told The Huffington Post: “I would consider myself bi. I’ve done stuff with girls before. But I would never be with a girl because I like… penis. But I’ve experimented.”

Megan Mullally

The “Will & Grace” and “Parks and Rec” actress said back in 2009, in an interview with The Advocate that she believes everyone is bisexual, including herself. But she qualified those statements with the blog Queerty saying, “I said that I thought that everybody is innately bisexual. I think there are different levels of awareness attached to that, so I may believe that everybody is innately bisexual, but somebody who is very homophobic may not see that quality in themselves in any way, shape or form. That’s on a very philosophical or even metaphysical level, you know what I mean? It’s not something that I think people are ready for yet. I think if you ask the average guy on the street if he was innately bisexual, he’d be like, ‘What the fuck are you talking about?’ and then he’d punch you in the face. So, we’re not quite there.”



The former “American Idol” and “The Voice” contestant, and current Broadway star admitted in 2012, that she had been in a relationship with a woman for the past year.

Vanessa Carlton

“Making my way downtown…” takes on a whole new meaning now doesn’t it? In 2010, during a Nashville Pride event, she announced to a crowd for the first time that she was a proud bisexual woman.


David Bowie

Iman’s husband said way back in 1976, that he was bisexual. His androgyny is very intentional. And he told Playboy, “It’s true– I am bisexual. But I can’t deny that I’ve used that fact very well. I suppose it’s the best thing that ever happened to me.”

The 63 year old author of Push the book that was later turned into Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire has been very open about being bisexual. She’s also been very open about the sexual abuse she experienced from her father.

Clive Davis

When Clive Davis’ autobiography was released last year the takeaway from the whole thing was the fact that he admitted, for the first time publicly that he was bisexual. After his marriage failed in the ’80’s Davis writes that he opened himself up to the possibility that he could have a relationship with a man.


Megan Fox

In a 2011 interview with Esquire, Fox said, “I think people are born bisexual and then make subconscious choices based on the pressures of society. I have no question in my mind about being bisexual. But I’m also a hypocrite: I would never date a girl who was bisexual, because that means they also sleep with men, and men are so dirty that I’d never want to sleep with a girl who had slept with a man.”

    I think Megan Fox is wrong. Only women are born bisexuals. Women when they go through their phase fool around with their girlfriends, (experimenting as it were) even if they turn up being straight. Men don’t fool around with their guy friends during the phase unless they are gay.

  • TruthSyrup

    Most of the people on the list where woman…whoa now that’s a surprise. That’s because most women are to a degree, bi…every girl I’ve ever dated has had at least one bi experience or woman crush in their life. If a woman says she’s not bi, it’s a lie. Give a girl enough alcohol and a proper setting and even the most geeky librarian will have a girl fling.

  • Poppy

    I think that when celebrities, or people in the public eye, talk about their sexuality with pride – or even just as if it’s normal (which it is), it does contribute towards reducing homosexuality. And no matter what people say, that is a good thing.

  • Just saying!!

    Lmfao @ making my way downtown!! Y’all are wrong for that! Hahaha

  • Zone 6

    I totally agree wit Megan Fox

  • Momma Dee Tha Q.U.E.E.N

  • SunBubbles

    I swore tht pic of tht Azaelia girl was Gabby Union…lol

  • bigdawgman

    Hmmm, Frenchie likes guys too? That was a surprise.

  • RedHead0186

    “Waving her freak flag high,” really? That seems a bit uncalled for . . .

  • B Cooper

    I thought Kim Z was just for a story line, well ok then.

    • Momma Dee Tha Q.U.E.E.N

      I thought it said her & DJ Traci Steele!

  • IllyPhilly

    We’ve been here before. Y’all should do an article on which celebs has STD’s or at least is rumored to. I wonder who would be on the list…LOL

  • Jayde da Blade

    Clive “all the way live” Davis is? I heard so is L A Reid and wats his name ……..the old black dude who made Secret Garden……..Quince J. yeah that’s him 2pac said he wanted to marry his daughter the yt looking one and Quincy apparently told him no blessing on that BUT U can suckle this Deeck if you need some vitamins…..

    • Hangover21

      ^This comment makes absolutely no sense. All I read was “fghjhgdsnjcnklvfbcsfk…”

      • Guestest

        Lmao!! right. That person should have gotten their thoughts together before typing all of that nonsense..

    • IllyPhilly

      “suckle this deek of you need vitamins.” WTF did I just read?

    • hi-liter

      Stupid……but funny.

  • juicyco

    oh hey megan…

  • Aaliyah Noelle

    Imagine s3x with Angelina …

  • MSpencer

    I tell ya that Veronica Wells seems to be pretty invested in disclosing and dissecting the sexual lives of celebrities….smh and then has the nerve to come up with a whole damn list of so called “bisexual” people. I’m tied of the messiness that seems to be the norm here lately at MadameNoire. With all the apparent free time on these editors hands, you’d think they be capable of more noteworthy and thought-provoking articles.

    • IllyPhilly

      Hahaha! I swear I was thinking the same thing.

  • PolkaDots

    EEEWWWHHH — No matter which way you look at it – It’s DISGUSTING.

      They have brought disaster upon themselves.

        And I would eat them with a goat…
        And I will eat them in the rain.
        And in the dark. And on a train.
        And in a car. And in a tree.
        They are so good so good you see!

    • nik

      You know…you clicked on this article…I mean it wasn’t like it popped up on your page and you had to click each number until it closed. No, you clicked it yourself then took the time out of your day to comment with capital letters. That’s an extra three seconds on top of the time you wasted just by choosing to view this article. For someone who claims its disgusting, you sure did spend a lot of time on it…

      • PolkaDots

        Dude – for someone who is SOOO concerned about ME and what I find to be offensive, disgusting or the like you sure do have a lot to say…Did I strike a nerve with my comment.

        The last I checked, in the U.S., this is a FREE country which means I am free to voice my opinion about ANY thing I so choose. In addition, the fact that you actually TIMED how long it would take to go through this article (presuming that one actually READ each tab) speaks volumes about your level of CRAZY.

        I suggest YOU use your time more wisely and try to make a decent living instead of attempting to understand and comment on the WHY’s of other people’s rationale.

        I mean was it THAT interesting or bothersome enough of a statement for you to actually TIME how long it would take the read the article AND THEN question why I would read it and let me know how long of MY TIME it took.

        Let me answer that for you: No.

      • PolkaDots

        Instead of responding to ME and my dislike for this article you may want to do a self check and ask YOURSELF why the f^ck would anyone CALCULATE the time it would take to read such an article AND THEN notify someone of their findings?

        Let me diagnose you: You are a CLOSETED HOMOSEXUAL and for that you may want to seek treatment whether that be religion, electroconvulsive therapy or your bathroom medicine cabinet.

        You’re welcome in advance.

        hahhahhaa – MUAH!

        • nik

          The only part of that I read was the capitalized part where you said I was a closeted homosexual. Oh honey…I’ve been out to my entire family and all of my friends for years now and continue to feel Gods love and good will in my life everyday. As to whatever else you wrote, I just haven’t the energy. I mean you wrote your entire dissertation here.

          • PolkaDots

            Cool, so everything I said ACTUALLY APPLIES and you admit it. I think that’s a first for you people.

            Yeah I do write well don’t I… Thank you for the compliment. I am college educated, twice over come 2016 and then heading to MED SCHOOL so it’s fitting.

            Lastly, take my advice babe: hit up the medicine cabinet, electroconvulsion therapy, or religion (may you burn in h3ll)

            • nik

              Ohman, I’m babe now? Sorry polka, I have a girlfriend already. *shrugs*

          • PolkaDots

            Make sure your friends welcome you to the H0TTEST place NOT ON THIS EARTH….hahahaha – MUAH!

            • Sami Jo

              As a woman of God myself, I feel shame for you. Do you not remember that it is NOT our place to judge? For only God can do that. Telling someone they will burn in Hell is not the Christian way, insulting and belittling someone is NOT the Christian way, and telling someone to kill themselves or harm themselves in any way, or that they need something as suffocating as man-made religion is certainly not God’s bidding. May God, in His loving, accepting, and free way, have mercy on your soul.

              • PolkaDots

                “As a woman of God myself, I feel shame for you.” –> Yeah as a believe in JESUS CHRIST I feel NO SYMPATHY FOR YOU. You’re an IDIOT.

              • PolkaDots

                “. Do you not remember that it is NOT our place to judge?” –> Oh, how I LOOOOVEEE you PARTIAL scripture quoters…Now finish the rest of the scripture…Better yet…LET ME:

                Matt 7 1-2: Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

                Now…let me interpret that for you…You can CALL OUT SIN my dear, ANY PREACHER WILL TELL YOU THAT you just can’t CONSTANTLY HOLD THAT AGAINST A PERSON. Just as Jesus CAN FORGIVE people who ASK FOR IT, you don’t continuously hold their sin against them BECAUSE NO ONE IS WITHOUT SIN on this earth.

                So if you call out someone on being Adultery, for instance, and you are doing the SAME thing please know that the SAME STANDARD you are holding your neighbor to, it’s being held to you. Actually that’s always the rule…So as long as you know that the standard you hold someone else to is the same standard that YOU are being held to there’s no issue.

              • PolkaDots

                You sound stupid as a beyotch dude…You’re welcome for the information beyotch.

              • PolkaDots

                “For only God can do that.” –> NEGATIVE. Anyone can call out sin. You just can’t constantly hold it against them. AND to call out sin is to make them SEE that they are wrong as in to help them to EDIFY the body of Christ.

              • PolkaDots

                ” Telling someone they will burn in Hell is not the Christian way,..” –> Oh, that doesn’t have to be the Christian way..It’s POLKADOTS’ way.

              • PolkaDots

                “..insulting and belittling someone is NOT the Christian way..”–> Oh, that doesn’t have to be the Christian way..It’s POLKADOTS’ way.

              • PolkaDots

                “..and telling someone to kill themselves or harm themselves in any way,..” –> aOh, that doesn’t have to be the Christian way..It’s POLKADOTS’ way.

              • PolkaDots

                “..or that they need something as suffocating as man-made religion is certainly not God’s bidding.” –> I didn’t tell you that you need RELIGION…I told you to go to h3ll, in so many words.

                Whether you find Jesus, Baal, or Buddha is of NO SIGNIFICANCE to me. Now burn.

              • PolkaDots

                “or that they need something as suffocating as man-made religion is certainly not God’s bidding.” –> Again, Oh, that doesn’t have to be the Christian way..It’s POLKADOTS’ way.

              • PolkaDots

                “May God, in His loving, accepting, and free way, have mercy on your soul.” –> He does. Now burn beyotch.

                • Sami Jo

                  Wow. You don’t know how to shut up, do you? You are wrong on so many levels. I think you need to figure out what a relationship with God and Jesus Christ is really about, because the way you’re spitting it out is disgusting. You should be ashamed. You’re as bad as WBBC. I take back what I said about God having mercy on you. I hope He teaches you the error of your ways in a way that leaves you ripped to pieces. You’re a disgrace to Christians and those of God. Your head is severally fucked up.

                  • PolkaDots

                    “Wow. You don’t know how to shut up, do you?” –> Apparently you don’t because you KEEP F^CKING RESPONDING TO ME YOU D!CK S^CKER.

                  • PolkaDots

                    “You are wrong on so many levels.” –> You are but that doesn’t seem to stop you from show casing your idiocy now has it?

                  • PolkaDots

                    “I think you need to figure out what a relationship with God and Jesus Christ is really about,..” –> Apparently you do…Because YOUR LOST…STAY IN THE DARKNESS.

                  • PolkaDots

                    “..because the way you’re spitting it out is disgusting.” –> Yeah it is…READ and COMPREHEND..ATTEND CHURCH and NOT a CULT and then YOU will know truth like I do.

                  • PolkaDots

                    “You should be ashamed.” –> You SHOULD be but since you have no sense of decency and are generally speaking an @SS you don’t. Sad.

                  • PolkaDots

                    “You’re as bad as WBBC.” –> Save your NEGRA TERMINOLOGY for someone who speaks that sh!t because I don’t. Or someone who gives a f^ck because I don’t.

                  • PolkaDots

                    “I take back what I said about God having mercy on you.” –> I don’t give a f^ck…I don’t take back sh!t I said about you…Now burn beyotch.

                  • PolkaDots

                    “I hope He teaches you the error of your ways in a way that leaves you ripped to pieces.” –> He will and he is…This is why he sent ME in your path…Now burn beyotch…Oh, and know that the life you WISH to have with the picket fence, husband and kids (in wedlock) yeah that sh!t is NEVER going to happen for you.

                  • PolkaDots

                    “You’re a disgrace to Christians and those of God.” –> You are but that doesn’t stop you from being the FRAUD and EMBARRASSING YOURSELF with your PSEUDO knowledge of the Bible now does it? You’re an IDIOT and I’m TRUTH. Consider yourself BLINDED (by my light.)

                  • PolkaDots

                    “Your head is severally fucked up.” –> Yours is but AGAIN this doesn’t stop you from showcasing the fact that you’re an IDIOT who is in DESPERATE NEED OF VALIDATION, KNOWLEDGE AND GENERAL DECENCY.

                    Stay feeling your way in the dark you stupid beyotch.

    “That we didn’t know were bisexual”? Who on your list was a surprise? I thought they were all known a while ago. Who does your research?

    • Duncan Blair

      Marlon Brando was a surprise and that’s really it. Everyone else either wasn’t a surprise or I didn’t know who they were. And I don’t know much about Marlon Brando anyways.
