"As a teenager I got every type of abuse. It was mostly about the way I looked and a lot of it was homophobic. I used to sit in the bath or shower and think, 'Oh God, I'm a weirdo. I'm a freak. How am I going to survive?'

I thought, 'I'll become an untouchable version of myself, then I'll be able to survive without being treated like s**t for the rest of my life.' I now live my life totally openly and apologetically. But I don't divulge my private life and neither do I believe in labels. I could fall in love with anybody and have done in the past, so I don't operate from a position of fear. So much of what I do is based around identity, sexuality and genderlessness. But I still get a hard time, especially in the U.K."

--Mika, speaking with the Sunday Mail
