Pop singer Mika comes out as gay

British pop star Mika has confirmed he is gay after years of questions surrounding his sexuality.

The ‘Grace Kelly’ singer had previously told reporters he was bisexual, and confirmed it in a 2009 interview with Dutch magazine Gay And Night.

In the interview, Mika said he had never labeled himself.

‘But having said that: I’ve never limited my life, I’ve never limited who I sleep with,’ he said.

‘Call me whatever you want. Call me bisexual, if you need a term for me.’

According to Instinct Magazine, he was frustrated with the articles written about his sexuality afterwards, because it wasn’t what he  meant to say.

He told Instinct: ‘If you ask me am I gay, I say yeah. Are these songs about my relationship with a man? I say yeah.

‘And 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.’

The interview coincides with the unveiling of Mika’s third album The Origin of Love, released in the UK on 16 September.

He has sold over 8 million records and achieved Gold or Platinum certifications in 32 countries worldwide across his previous two albums Life in Cartoon Motion and The Boy Who Knew Too Much.

Mika’s interview will be released in full in the September issue of Instinct magazine.
