Mika's Very Good, Very Gay New Record Comments (0)

It's no secret that Mika has gay fans. His new album No Place in Heaven (itself an obvious gay reference) is chock-full of gay-inspired music, too.

“Good Guys,” a song written by Mika with Skyler Stonestreet is an homage to his teen heroes all of whom were gay or thought to be gay:

It’s not the cowboys

that are missing anymore

That problem was already old in ’94

Don’t be offended

this might seem a little wrong

But where have all the gay guys gone

To the romance when I was 14 years old

To my heroes that were dressing up in gold

Only hoping one day I could be so bold

Where have all the gay guys gone

If we are all in the gutter

It doesn’t change who we are

Cuz some of us in the gutter

Are looking up at the stars

Tell me where have all the good guys gone

Thank you Rufus,

thank you Auden and James Dean

Thank you Emerson and Bowie for my dreams

Wilfred Owen, Kinsey, Whitman and Rimbaud

Thank you Warhol, thank you patience,

thank you Porter and Cocteau

The song sounds like its allowing for gay people to be less than perfect, but urging us to aspire to be big, bold, brash, memorable. The gutter reference is an allusion to a The Picture of Dorian Gray line, and there are “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” (Pete Seeger, 1955) and “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?” (Paula Cole, 1997) echoes as well.

As underscored by his publicist:

“By asking where have all the gay guys gone, Mika poses a question on the relevance of gay icons nowadays, wonders where bold, challenging, rules breaking heroes may be today.”

The video for the song, which is a European single, was shot in London, directed by KT Alueta and co-choreographed by Mika.

The American single is the pop smile-inducer “Talk About You” ... hopefully, we'll get the gay song, too!

 

On a related note, in case you missed it, Mika has also released a Web video of the song “Last Party,”  directed by Peter Lindbergh. The song was directly inspired by the story of the three-day party Freddy Mercury gave when he found out he was HIV positive.

In a fresh interview, Jeremy Renner jokes that being considered gay only helps his career, passive-aggressive-defensively blowing it all off with, “I don’t care, ultimately, if that’s what people want to think, read and care about. F—king say whatever the hell you want about me.”
