    Out100: Mika

    Musician. Photography by M. Sharkey When Life in Cartoon Motion, Mika’s retro-flavored cotton candy explosion of a debut album, came out in 2007, it prompted as much speculation about the Lebanese-born British singer’s sexuality as it did about the future of pop music. But after spending the past five years dodging labels, Mika announced this August that, yes, he is in fact gay, and that the songs on his new LP, The Origin of Love , are about his relationship with a man. The record’s first single, the clubby

  • Mika Pulls Out All The Stops in His Only U.S. Show This Summer

    Mika Pulls Out All The Stops in His Only U.S. Show This Summer

    The newer tracks shy away from the deliciously upbeat (like “Lollipop” and “Relax, Take It Easy”) and have a weightier feel (both lyrically and cerebrally), but they’re as magical and infectious as ever. You can download Songs of Sorrow at Mika’s site, where you can also preview three of the tracks . We may be able to blame Canada for a late start to last night’s performance (Mika’s flight from Montreal was apparently delayed), but let’s focus on thanking Lebanon and England (and some higher musical power) for Mika. -- JOSEPH HASSAN Previously > Girl in a Coma wake up

    Mika’s latest video makes you hope he recycles Somebody call the Lorax. In the video for his track, ‘Celebrate,’ the newly out pop star shows that his writer’s block is the greatest threat to trees since the Once-ler. The video features a bevy of people celebrating different occasions all the while Mika broods and fills his apartment with torn notebook pages, frustrated that he cannot get his lyrics just right. Mika, honey, get an iPad. The video is not just super schmaltzy but oh-so-hetero, that is, devoid of any

    Passing Judgment: Mika's Fresh New Look

    Photos: Getty Images At a reader's request, here are before and after photos of Mika's fresh new look. I almost didn't recognize Mika in his spit-polished style. It's amazing what a comb, some hair relaxer and a bit of good product can do to tame some unruly curls—not that I have anything against curls. Mika looks quite handsome when he's not sporting his usual casual garb. The guy cleans up well, what else can I say? (Truman Says)

    DUH: Mika Is Now Officially "Gay"

    The pop sensation comes out in ‘Instinct’ For some reason Mika has always been cagey about his sexuality. Although he did claim to be bisexual in a 2009 Gay and Night article, the British singer did so in a roundabout way, saying, “Call me bisexual if you need a term for me.” Mince when you walk, not when you talk, honey. Mika called that article “disappointing” and tells 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

    Mika, our favorite Freddie Mercury-falsetto blaring Brit is back with his latest song, "Kick-Ass," (produced by Gaga collaborator RedOne) from the upcoming superhero movie of the same name. Looking like a disheveled Clark Kent after a mugging in an alleyway (or a long night out on the town), Mika sings his heart out on a song that would've fit in quite nicely on his sophomore effort, last year's The Boy Who Knew Too Much .     Based on the comic series of the same name, Kick-Ass , is about a teenage boy (played by cutie Aaron

    The second coming of Mika

    When I talked to Mika last year all his plans for future tours were upwards and onwards, bigger and better, so I'll admit the shift to considering him as a shoe-gazing stripped-down acoustic troubadour caught me a bit off guard. Oh, I'm sure it will be good -- his songs are strong, smartly written and well-composed, and his musicality live is leaps and bounds beyond most pop singers. But the quieter versions and most of the new songs sounded more Rufus Wainwright than the Mika we all fell for in the first place. Like most of the fans I saw at last night's show,

    A Brief, Open Letter to Mika

    I thought about it, why do I love this song so much, and I think it's because it makes me about as candy-colored happy as the first time I heard Culture Club's "It's a Miracle" . It's that catchy! You can hold a falsetto note, Mika, and I always die a little when you scale that, like, what, eighteen-note peak in "Grace Kelly," then come back down again? Damn, child. But I didn't hear you say "Ka-ching!" at the end; that was kind of disappointing. Also, you may have been
