During his sold-out Montreal run of concerts with the +Orchestre symphonique de Montréal (OSM), this past February (so packed the OSM gave me a handwritten-ticket so I could sit in an usher's seat!), I caught up with #MIKA  at the Old Montreal hotel he was staying at. He was fun and frank, his new album drops June 16 and he headlines the Festival International de Jazz de #Montreal  on July 4-5. Plus, in my latest column in +Fugues T.V. magazine, Mika talks about the showbiz closet: http://tinyurl.com/m53w529. By the by, Mika snapped our selfie!

My latest column in +Fugues T.V. magazine,  a fun and frank, 100% uncensored interview with  #MIKA . The pop superstar talks about his new album, his love for #Montreal ,   #FreddieMercury  of +Queen Official, and how he navigated coming out of the showbiz glass closet    
The first time I met Mika some years ago, he turned to me, legs crossed and, pretending to hold a cigarette, did his finest imitation of Freddie Mercury.
