British pop singer Mika has confirmed long-time rumors about his sexual orientation.
In an interview with Instinct magazine Mika said he’s gay and always has been:
"If you ask me am I gay, I say yeah," the Lebanese-born star, 28, told the magazine. "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."
But that wasn’t exactly what Mika had said before when asked about his sexuality.
"I’ve never ever labeled myself," he is quoted by Pink News as having told the publication. "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."
Mika's third album, "The Origin of Love," is being released on Sept. 16.
