In his autobiography "Career Suicide: Meine Ersten dreißig Jahre" ("My first thirty years"), Bill Kaulitz explain his early love for Nena. "Her crystal clear, youthful and naive voice thundered rebellious texts and heartbreak through our room," writes Kaulitz, who grew up with his twin brother Tom in Loitsche near Magdeburg. That meant: "600 uninspired souls, absolute sadness" - there wasn't much else going on. In the USA, Tom Kaulitz also found love in Heidi Klum. His brother Bill says in his book: "I think we both plundered our love luck accounts for this fateful encounter, otherwise Heidi and Tom might never have met in February 2018. In any case, it was worth every pain so far." Sometimes he is asked, says Kaulitz: "And, Bill ... when is your turn? When do we celebrate your wedding?" Bill Kaulitz had experience with both sexes. Kaulitz becomes more specific: "I had exciting experiences with girls," reports the musician who lives in Los Angeles. "But I also had a love triangle with my best friend and his girlfriend because suddenly I was in love with him and he with me." Today he is proud to have become a role model for the LGBTQI movement.
