British singer-songwriter Mika has come out gay.

The 28-year-old Mika has previously said he's bisexual.

He commented on his sexuality in a 2009 interview with Dutch glossy Gay & Night: “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.”

And he later told This Is London: “I consider myself label-less because I could fall in love with anybody – literally – any type, any body. I'm not picky.”

Mika, whose third studio album The Origin of Love is set for a September 16 release, talks about his relationship for the first time in the September issue of Instinct.

“If you ask me am I gay, I say yeah. Are these songs about my relationship with a man? I say yeah. And it's only through my music that I've found the strength to come to terms with my sexuality beyond the context of just my lyrics. This is my real life,” Mika said.
