This month we're celebrating the 7th anniversary of the release of Mika's second studio album, The Boy Who Knew Too Much.
The album debuted at its peak position of number four on the UK Albums Chart and sold an estimated 1.5 million copies worldwide.
According to one interview, Mika said, "the context of a lot of the storyline is my adolescence. I made movies in my head and I was a loner. I was always a watcher, and there are a lot of references in the album's lyrics about looking from the outside in. The boy who knew too much because he always sat around looking at everybody, the stalker." He's also said, "With the album, I wanted to paint this kind of comic-book version of my adolescence. I made a conscious decision to try and write a few more songs in the first person. Unfortunately, I've written songs that have dealt with a lot of different things from my personal life and these kind of psychosexual melodramas set within an adolescent context but all framed within pop music. The only difficult thing for me now is I get asked questions about all these things."
Please join us in celebrating this terrific album's 7th birthday!
Mika is involved in the association "Imagine for Margo," dedicated to collecting funds to help the research for the cancer of children.
Every year the association organizes a running/walking "race" opened to anybody who can collect a minimum of 200€ as donation for the association.
This year several fans of Mika are already registered for the race that will take place near Paris on Sunday 25th September.
They have created a group for the race named "KIDS ARE GOLDEN"
Maybe few other fans will participate. But also more fans will come to Paris to support us the day of the race.
The objective is of course to collect as much as possible to help the research.
Everyone can support either by sending money to the association (link of our group below) or even just spreading the news or sending messages of support.
Every single Euro is important!
It doesn't matter which person of the group you will support as all the money collected will go to the association.
In priority please support persons who still have not yet collected 200€ that is the minimum to be able to participate to the race.
Mika did a lot for this cause and we, his fans, will do our best to give our contribution as a big family ❤
Thanks to all!
And thanks to those who already gave their support after our few tweets of last days

We're talking about this new signing session HERE.
Mika performed to a sold out crowd in Barolo last night at the Collisioni Festival, and he shared this message with those in attendance, and for all of us.
"Quando c’è l’intolleranza, la crudeltà, io non riesco a rimanere sul mio culo seduto. Quello che stiamo facendo qua non è un privilegio. Quando voi cantate, quando io ballo o dico stupidaggini, quando noi siamo uniti insieme senza avere paura di niente.. Questo non è un privilegio, questo è necessario. Io ballo per dire vaffanculo, e non lo dico con rabbia o intolleranza, ma con gioia e con il cuore. Quindi balliamo, perché possiamo ballare e dobbiamo ballare, e quindi balliamo con speranza."
TRANSLATION: When there is intolerance, cruelty, I can't just stay seated on my ass. What we are doing here is not a privilege. When you all sing, when I dance or say stupid things, when we are united together without being afraid of anything... This is not a privilege, it is necessary. I dance to say "fuck you" and I don't say it with anger or intolerance, but with joy and with my heart. Then let's dance, because we can dance and we must dance, and then we dance with hope.
