That’s why I’ve been getting the “gay question” ever since I turned 13, when I started giving interviews. I always wondered… why does that even matter? I thought I was here to sing and perform for people?”

At a young age, Bill Kaulitz showed an interest in singing, which was noticed by Trumper. He helped the Kaulitz twins to start their own band and they had begun writing music at the age of 7.

Eventually, when Bill Kaulitz was 12 years old, he and Tom Kaulitz met bassist Georg Listing (then 14), and drummer Gustav Schafer (then 13). They named themselves Devilish, which was later renamed to Tokio Hotel.
