UK pop star Mika has admitted in an interview with gay magazine 'Gay & Night' that he thinks of himself as being bisexual.

Speculation about his sexuality has been rife since the flamboyant star debuted onto the music scene with 'Grace Kelly' in 2007 and now Mika has finally spoken out.

"I've never ever labeled myself," Mika tells Gay & Night magazine. "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 interviewer asked if Mika believed he'd be a good role model for confused teens.

"There are ways of being a role model without having to always establish yourself with a label," Mika said. "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. You shouldn't have to say, 'I'm gonna label myself in order to figure our what is gong to make me happy in life.'"

"If 'bi' is the label that helps you do it," Mika adds, "then do that. That's as close as I'll get to any label."

Mika is heading to Australia in November to play a one-off show in Sydney, proudly presented by us here at Take 40! Click here for details!
