Mika: I never talk about anything to do with my sexuality. I just don't think I need to. People ask me all the time. But I just don't see the point. In order to survive I've kind of shut up different parts of my life, and that's one of them, especially this early in my career.
His song "Billy Brown" was a free download on iTunes.
Mika: (revealing he was bullied at school) The bullying was out of control. I was even picked on by one of my teachers, a female teacher. I don't know why she did it. I didn't provoke her. I wasn't the first and I imagine I wasn't the last she picked on. She was just a nasty piece of work. I wasn't brave. I was not a fighter in the classroom. I lost I was lame. I admit it. I saw myself more as the slow and stubborn turtle who quietly got on with what he was doing, knowing I would one day win the race.
Mika: I don't do drugs. I think if I did, I'd probably fall off the stage.
Mika: After I started singing as a boy I started to get jobs everywhere. With the help of a terrifyingly tough Russian singing teacher, I got to be really good at professional gigs.
Mika: If I was worried about sexual taboos I certainly wouldn't have made the record I made. It has nothing to do with that. It has more to do with self-respect.
