He told 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.’
The interview coincides with the unveiling of Mika’s third album The Origin of Love, released in the UK on 16 September.
He has sold over 8 million records and achieved Gold or Platinum certifications in 32 countries worldwide across his previous two albums Life in Cartoon Motion and The Boy Who Knew Too Much.
Mika already came out last year, but this was ignored and the year before he came out as bisexual in Dutch magazine Gay and Night and the News of the World, but was unhappy about this later.
