    • 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.

  • Pyscho Babble, Ruddy good music to melt away any stress.

    We became massive MIka fans when he hit our screens with Grace Kelly, bopping around Wetherspoons to it, it just somehow seemed that everything was right with the world, then along came Love Today, and Big Girls. This man is fantastic. Saw him in Leeds on the first night of his tour in May and we were blown away, He is Mr Entertainment. Far better than Robbie Williams, and Take That. Ok this guy has been voted number 8 in the worst single hits, but this from the guy who was number 1 well before the single was released just goes to show, the man is here to stay. Cant wait til the next tour.moreless
