Zitat des Tages von Mika:
I'm fascinated by religion, but I'm not particularly religious.
I really want people to know me, to find out about me, and if they really like me, to stick with me.
I write songs to turn myself into something else. And then I become that, and I want to become something else.
I lack trust in others.
When you're not part of a club, you have to find another way of surviving.
The best way to make the most serious point in the world is to be as unserious as possible.
Most people's jobs are rooted in reality.
Part of me sees myself as talented, and the other part sees me as strange. Ideas get stuck in your head and nothing changes them. Not even fame.
I was always told I was ugly. I still think I am ugly. I know I've got an odd face and you can't tell me otherwise.
I found school pretty tough. I got the mickey taken out of me at school.
I've always said in the press, I can fall in love with a man. I can fall in love with a woman. And I've always said that I have no shame in that.
I write songs about fat girls and about men who run off to Mexico.
To me, being a classical snob in the highest possible way and being an indie snob is just as bad!
I wish I had more guts when I was younger because then I would've said things to people's faces instead of just running away all the time.
I'd never compare myself to Freddie Mercury because I look up to him far too much. As an artist, not necessarily as a person.
Hype is scary.
Most of the people who write pop music were outsiders at some time in their life.
Anyone who tries to diss me in comparison to Queen, it just renders all their criticisms completely futile. That's quite pleasurable.
You can't deny your limitations.
In fact, no one has ever really wanted to go on a date with me.
My life isn't tabloid-friendly.
Everything I write is about me.
Well, I have to say, most of my clothes are designed and made by my mother.
Sometimes I dress like what I want for lunch, because all I can think about is having a tuna sandwich.
In the past, it weighed on me because nobody in my family is gay. I had no role models so I had to find my own way.
I completely understand the responsibility I have in continuing the sonic style that I have created.
My first record was about childhood. There were a lot of nursery rhyme and fairytale references; it was all about being naive.
Oh, I'm quite harmless in real life.
I was a show-off as a kid. I was wearing bow ties and matching coloured trousers.
I am terrible at relationships.
I was born out of classical music.
I'm not creating an enigma or leaving mystery, I'm just respecting myself enough as an artist to give myself room to grow and not to be devoured all in one go.
We all have to be dishes on a plate eventually, with the way we are marketed, but I have no intention of being a cheap Chinese all-you-can-eat buffet.
I've never, ever labeled myself.
I don't know where my father is from. I just don't. He's lived in so many countries.
I can't just listen to music walking down the street unless I have a reason to. I can't just listen to music as a piece of junk in the background. It drives me insane.
