Davis' roster of clients reads like a who's who and includes such superstars as Janis Joplin, Aerosmith, Whitney Houston (as well as Whitney's cousin, Dionne Warwick), Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson. Clive Davis began his professional career as a lawyer in New York City. He later landed a job at Columbia Records and eventually became its president. While there, he signed several soon-to-be important artists (such as Janis Joplin and Aerosmith) before being accused of using corporate funds for personal expenses in 1973. In 1974, he left Columbia and started Arista Records. Davis created J Records in 2000 and now serves as the chief creative officer for Sony Music. Nicknamed Golden Ears, Clive Davis seemed to have a knack for recognizing talent. He also had good radar and a keen skill for reviving careers of past hit-makers, including his efforts with Dionne Warwick and the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin. Behind the scenes of the music business, Davis also had an innate sense which helped him spot talent—examples of this would be L.A. Reid and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds as well as Sean "Puffy" Combs, with whom Davis later formed Bad Boy Records. His four Grammys were for work with Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson and Santana (two awards in 2000). In 2013, Davis publicly came out as a bisexual in his autobiography The Soundtrack of My Life. On the daytime talk show Katie he told host Katie Couric that he hoped his coming out would lead to "greater understanding" of bisexuality. Since 2004, Davis has been in a relationship with a man, which followed a 14-year relationship with a male doctor.
