For decades Barry Manilow gave the world timeless hits, while keeping his own world a total secret. Now at 73 years old, the music legend is opening up about his life, struggles and, for the first time, his sexuality.
Fiercely private, the pop icon recently welcomed PEOPLE into his Palm Springs home for an exclusive interview and photo shoot with his manager husband Garry Kief — and talked for the first time about their nearly 40-year romance. Says Manilow, “I’m so private. I always have been.”
This is HUGE news, for anyone who has no idea who Barry Manilow is or has like, never seen a photo of him or like, doesn’t know that gay people exist.
Of course Barry Manilow is gay. The fact that he thought he needed to go to People Magazine for this big reveal is insane. All he had to do was leave his house and I think the rest of us would’ve caught on, guy.
This is not gay bashing. This is celebrity bashing. It’s not 1985, no one gives a shit about Barry Manilow.
