Pop singer Mika has played coy about confirming or denying any reports about his sexual preference over the years.
But the singer has now spoken out to confirm that he is in fact homosexual.
Rumours surrounding his sexuality have been rife since he broke on to the music scene in 2007, and in rather unsurprising news he has finally decided to come out.
The 28-year-old has opened up to Instinct Magazine about his sexuality to ‘come out’, and even revealed the tracks on his new album The Origin Of Love are all about his trysts with men.
He told the gay publication: ‘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.’
It’s the first time Mika has admitted outright that he is homosexual.
Three years ago the Grace Kelly hitmaker claimed he hates putting a label on himself but admitted he was bisexual.
He said at the time to a Dutch magazine: ‘I’ve never ever labelled 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.’
Mika also previously remarked: ‘I consider myself label-less because I could fall in love with anybody – literally – any type, any body. I’m not picky.’
Although the singer never denied his sexuality, he never flaunted it either, leading many fans to speculate over his love life.
It is not currently known whether he is involved in a relationship or not.
