Though he avoided definitive comments in the past, telling the London Evening Standard in 2007, "I never talk about anything to do with my sexuality, I don't think I need to,” pop singer Mika has clarified his sexual orientation. The Advocate reports that Mika told a Netherlands gay publication, "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."

The creative music maker also shared his interesting views on being a role model for closeted LGBT youths. Mika said, "There are ways of being a role model without having to always having to establish yourself with a label. Let's say if you're a 16-year-old guy, and you're not sure about your sexuality, you should be as free as you want."

"Having a role model who makes you feel like it's alright to do whatever you want, without the pressure of a label, I think that's a good thing as well," the singer said of hits like "Grace Kelly" and his latest, "We Are Golden." "I think there's a million different ways to do it, there isn't only one. And I hope I'm right."
