“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.”

Pop star Mika comes out fully in an exclusive interview with Instinct, to appear in the magazine’s September issue. So far only this teaser has been released.
