Pop singer Mika has finally revealed that he is gay, confirming earlier speculations about his sexuality.
After addressing that the gay rumours, which have surrounded him for years, are indeed true, the singer also revealed that the songs on his new album ‘The Origin of Love’ are inspired by his own love affairs – with other men.
In an interview with gay publication Instinct Magazine, Mika said: “If you ask me am I gay, I say yeah. Are these songs about my relationship with a man? I say yeah.”
He also spoke of how his music helped him come to terms with his sexuality. “It’s only through my music that I’ve found the strength to come to terms with my sexuality beyond the context of just my lyrics. This is my real life.”
Prior to his homosexuality confession, Mika has previously hinted at it, although he never directly admitted to the rumours. In an interview he gave three years ago, the pop star said: “I’ve never ever labeled myself. But having said that, I’ve never limited my life. I’ve never limited who I sleep with…Call me whatever you want. Call me bisexual, if you need a term for me.”
He also said: ‘I consider myself label-less because I could fall in love with anybody – literally – any type, any body. I’m not picky.”
