  1. I love the part where they all have to do something on the catwalk, that's so funny! And it finally explains Jacob's pose, he had to impersonate the Little Mermaid! There was one moment that I'm wondering about, after the one girl did the belly dancing and went really wild and they all were laughing and having fun, Mika got really serious and said something to them that I can't understand - what did he say there?
  2. Thank you. I managed to watch it now, it really is a very interesting interview! (And I noticed it's not just the Canadian French I don't understand, it apparently is anyone speaking French, apart from Mika, he just speaks so clearly that I think I understand French when in fact I just understand him, lol! )
  3. The @Subtitling Team also translated Casa Mika, so why not. Tho I think there's still several interviews from the last few weeks that keep them busy... but maybe you want to help them? Thanks for the bits you translated! I love what he said about how being weird makes you feel bad in real life but on stage it's essential, there your weirdness becomes your strength.
  4. I only managed to watch the first 30 minutes tonight and I don't understand everything he says, but I LOVE it how his eyes are sparkling all the time when he talks about what these songs and being on stage mean to him.
  5. That must be part of the interviews that I haven't heard. But it was only over the last ca. 1,5 years that I started following his French and Italian interviews / activities, before that I only read the written interviews if a translation was posted on MFC. Opens a whole new universe.
  6. I can't watch it now, but you make me curious. From what I heard, he doesn't have the homes in Milan and London anymore. I never heard that he owned a place in Paris, I only know part of his family lives there - tho I'm never sure which of their homes are rented or bought. Athens, for example - it seems Mika and Andy have 2 flats there now in the same house, but no idea if they're rented or bought. Same for Tuscany, I heard the house belongs to him, it belongs to his sister, or it's rented - no idea which is true. Sometimes there are ways to find out such things online, a
  7. Hmm, in the English version it's "home" both times, but I just read the French version, it's "chez moi" for Miami and "a la maison" at the end. Maison means house, dunno if it can also mean home, as in feeling at home somewhere? So maybe it just means he misses that house? And maybe also the area - if I was him, after the Canadian temperatures I'd also like to hang out under palm trees in Miami for a few days.
  8. Btw, it's interesting that he calls the US "home". I suppose maybe because he has an US passport and he designed the Miami house interior together with his family. He invested a lot in this house, maybe that's why it's very dear to his heart. Because usually he says he's at home everywhere, so far I didn't have the impression that he preferred one of his houses over the other. Or maybe he just needs them all to feel at home, and he didn't have much time in Miami since over a year at least, maybe even 2? So maybe it just means that now he needs a bit of this home before going back to another on
  9. Ah, fab to hear what he's up to! Tho I think the writing rather refers to the future months than the past (or both), it says they ARE intense months of writing, not they have been, I think?
  10. That would explain it, at least. The colours look a bit unhealthy tho in that context... My thought was that it has to do with the gay bars he went to as a teenager, and he mentioned several times that drugs were usual there. With that, also the slightly electronic version of the song makes sense, Mika said in the secret song show that they played electronic music at these clubs. Indeed I had never thought of interpreting the lyrics of that Elvis song specifically about gay love, but listening to the lyrics, it makes sense, it even gives it a lot more meaning that way. With
  11. Ah, I didn't think of the travel restrictions, I didn't know they still were that strict. In Europe it's all for keeping borders open, and although there are some countries that are defined as virus variant areas, from which travel is prohibited, from most countries you can just travel here (at least to Germany, not sure if it's the same for all of Europe), if you keep to testing and quarantine regulations.
  12. Nice of him to answer my question so quickly. We still don't know what he's up to, but it's nice to know where he is... I'd say it looks like he might stay in the US at least for a few days - if he wanted to go back to Europe quickly, he could just have taken a plane from Montreal. Maybe he'll even meet up with Andy and the girls in Miami, who knows.
  13. Hm, I don't know... I'm sure we have different roles in our life - like, of course when I interact with my children, different sides of my personality come to the forefront than when I go to a Mika concert. But idk, it's all me, it's not like someone who knows me well would be surprised about how I am in a different surrounding than where they know me from - or at least I think so. I remember we had this discussion in 2019 when Mika said in an interview "no one ever really knows themselves", that some people agreed but others said, well Mika, speak for yourself, I do know myself! W
  14. Thanks! What is he saying? I just understand "nervous", and ofc lots of thank you's. Did he say anything during the show about the version of Can't Help Falling in Love? It was the only part of the performance that didn't positively surprise me. Also, I understand the "magic mushrooms" for Grace Kelly, but for this song I can't bring it together. Besides, I loved the show, of course especially the 2 songs that Mika sang. Heroes was so intense and GK so joyful and colourful!
  15. The black and white photos after all the colours on stage, it's that contrast he always likes. He looks good, but very serious, and in a way I'm bothered by not being able to see his face / eyes in the shirtless photo. It feels like, I don't know, a body without a soul? Of course I know it's him and that he has a soul, and a very beautiful one. But, not sure, maybe it's also this combination with the other photo where he looks so serious, otherwise I'd think he's just fooling around, with putting the shirt on his head. Anyway, although he looks attractive as always, if he shows just his
  16. That for sure. About the first part of your post, what I was trying to say is that while so far I thought the same what you write, that it's just about private vs popstar life, in this interview (especially in combination with some of the other things he said about it in the past) it sounds to me like there's more to it than that. But ofc I could be wrong.
  17. I find the part about Mika/Michael quite interesting. In the 2019 interviews he said he wants to bring together the two, in his "letter from Mika to Michael" he wrote something like the two would melt like ice cream in the sun to become one. And now he says Michael isn't his friend, he still doesn't know him. So it seems the identity finding part of MNIMH, idk, might not have gone the way he had planned? On the other hand, he also said that he never really knows himself and that this is part of what drives his creativity. So that seems like a contradiction to trying to unite the two. Certainly
  18. I think it was the small space of this flat - I suppose when Mika said last year that it's like a student's apartment, that wasn't really accurate - but probably it felt like that to him, if usually even his hotel suites are bigger than that... My husband and me got and get along well despite him being in home office since last March. Luckily we don't live in a small flat, so everyone can find their own space. But I have this problem with my kids, because they always ask something from me and if I have that all day 7 days a week, it definitely gets too much after a while. You can't
  19. I missed the beginning of the interview, because my VPN wasn't working properly. What I got was that he told the story of the abusive teacher and how he got expelled from school, he said that was one of the happiest days of his life. And the rest of the story that we all know, going to the park, getting singing lessons, singing in opera, then he sang a bit of the Orbit chewing gum ad and told the story of him calling British Airways and hearing his own voice in the waiting loop. Then they talked for a moment about where he would be now without that abusive teacher, maybe in an office - but he
  20. It's a song by Yelle and they'll sing it as part of the Medley in the Star Academy show on Sunday.
  21. After Mika singing it in his story, the memory came back - it was the song that was already stuck in my head all the time back in 2007, while I would much rather have had a Mika song stuck in my head after a Mika gig. 😅
  22. Love this song! Definitely my fave Gaga song. Elvis. I hope Mika sings that one. I loved it when he sang Wooden Heart at the Xmas gig! The song by Yelle, I probably heard it when she was Mika's support act in 2007, but can't remember. Generally her music is too electronic for my liking, but she has a few fun ones. Smalltown Boy, of course I know it, it's an 80s classic that gets still played at clubs - but I just looked up the lyrics for the first time, never realized their meaning before. Most of the English songs I liked as a kid/teen, I only liked for the music, becau
  23. The way he asks in the beginning "Who knows Heroes?", I'd think he talks about Bowie's song. Also the picture of Jacob, if that's his performance for the song, that doesn't fit to Mika's Heroes. Anyway, we'll see... Mika likes to surprise everyone, lol!
