Suckin' too hard on my Mika-pop

 

Some gays may be mad at Mika for refusing to answer ever-looming questions about his sexuality. He's "come out" only to say that he wants a gay following and that the hype should be based on his music and not which gender he'd prefer to go home with. His 'Gay/Post-Gay/Not Gay?' cover of Out Magazine left a lot of people with a lot of time on their hands disappointed — a top-billed feature in a gay mag should've given us some answers.

 

I saw Mika last night at Washington's 9:30 Club. Maybe I want him to be gay so that my attraction to him can morph into mere admiration. Maybe I want him to be straight so that he defies stereotypes and, well, marries me. Because Mika's show was possibly the gayest thing I've ever seen — besides Rufus Wainwright getting crucified as the gay messiah.

 

Before doors opened, two Dorothy-like girls in blonde wigs and poufy dresses distributed lollipops to the crowd. Mika wore light green pants, a white T-shirt and suspenders that hung around his waist. He hopped around, curls bobbing, and sang the pop-liscious hits everyone had come to hear. There was nothing sexual about his performance; in fact, it was juvenile and playful. The crowd — consisting mostly of young girls and older gay men — was there to have fun, dance hard, suck on their lollipops and sing along.

 

So I guess I don't care about Mika's orientation. His Jackson 5 and Eurythmics cover choices and the fact that he made me cry with his song "Happy Ending" help me lean in a certain direction, but it really doesn't matter anymore. It should be all about his performance, and, after last night, it definitely is.

Such a nice review! Thanks for posting! :thumb_yello:

 

But:

 

The crowd — consisting mostly of young girls and older gay men...

Hehe, from the reports on the forum I got the impression that the DC audience consisted mostly of 30+ women... :biggrin2:

LOL! Hey! I resemble that remark! :naughty:

 

But seriously... NOT sexual? I'm not sure exactly where she was looking

during Sweet Dreams... and no, he didn't take his shirt off, but oooooh,

baby... :blush-anim-cl:

 

But otherwise... it's a nice review. Better than one in today's Washington Post, for sure!
