mel_tinydancer Posted March 29, 2007 Share Posted March 29, 2007 POPPING OUT In the wake of everyone's favourite pocket-sized popette, Anthony Callea, stating the bleeding obvious by coming out as gay, news has hit that British pop singer Mika has received death threats. Why? Because he refuses to discuss his sexuality. This is London reports that the Beirut-born, up-and-coming star, whose debut single, 'Grace Kelly', hit #1 In the UK upon release, told the paper: "I get hate messages all the time, a death threat. It was over whether I am gay or not. He wasn't happy that I won't talk about my personal life like that. Sometimes I think that I have made it, other times it is a bit worrying. "In order to survive I've shut up different parts of my life, and that's one of them, especially this early in my career, I don't really feel that it's necessary to know in terms of my music ... I never talk about anything to do with my sexuality, I don't think I need to. People ask me all the time. "Some people make records that are defined by their sexuality, but mine really are not. It does play a lot with campness. It has a theatricality to it. Why not? It"s pop music." Am I the only one who finds this tedious? Oh, by the way, Ian Thorpe reaffirmed his rampant heterosexuality in The Good Weekend on Saturday. Phew. Found this article at this website.. http://www.evolutionpublishing.com.au/sxnews/opinion/weekly-edit-101111.aspx and i found it quite disturbing. Why the hell can't people just let the whole sexuality thing go!! he's not a pop star to advertise his personal life, he's here to share his amazing music with us. And why on earth would someone want to kill him for trying to keep his private life PRIVATE?! It bothers me.. people need to mind their own business.
