Today Is "Celebrate Bisexuality Day!"

And what better way to say "Way to go bisexuals!" than a celebratory 'snap' from newly admitted "bisexual" coverboy, Mika!

In an interview with the Dutch magazine, "Day & Night" Mika say's..."I've never ever labeled myself. -- Call me whatever you want. Call me bisexual, if you need a term for me."
And he goes on to recommend the label-less route for everyone else: 
"There are ways of being a role model without having to always having to establish yourself with a label. Let's say if you're a 16-year-old guy, and you're not sure about your sexuality, you should be as free as you want...Having a role model who makes you feel like it's alright to do whatever you want, without the pressure of a label, I think that's a good thing as well. I think there's a million different ways to do it, there isn't only one. And I hope I'm right."
First off, excuse me while I gag.   Secondly, I'm about as surprised at Mika liking cock as I was about Clay Aiken.   However with all due respect to legitmate bisexuals out there, as one commenter on Queerty said the other day "'I have yet to meet one person who told me that they were bi, who isn't out as gay a few years later'".  

I also have to say, in this interview Mika validates my point from the other day about younger queers eschewing labels.

Mika is talented with a huge pop appeal, however given how he defines virtues of a role model? I wouldn't recommend him as one to anyone...... let alone a queer youth.
