An average person might not recognize the name Mica Penniman. More people know him as Mika, a pop singer whose flirty and catchy music and outlandish dress made him a star. For the first time since gaining momentum in 2007, he is finally addressing his sexuality.

“I never talk about anything to do with my sexuality, I don’t think I need to,” Mika said to the London Evening Standard in 2007. His first and five-time platinum album entitled Life in Cartoon Motion gave him bubblegum hits like “Grace Kelly” and “Love Today.”

“I’ve never ever labeled myself,” Mika told the Netherlands’ Gay & Night, “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 released his second album today entitled The Boy Who Knew Too Much.
