The recording artist Mika named his first album Life In Cartoon Motion, a perfect name for a singer whose sound mimics, well, the Saturday morning broadcasts of the 1990s. The Lebanese act’s second record is called We Are Golden, another appropriate title: A virtual nobody who’s become something of an indie-hipster-gay music darling should certainly consider himself something of a 24 karat phenom. His video for the record’s first single will do little to silence those “Is he gay? Is he bi?” questions, but it’s completely in sync with the image Mika has manufactured for himself. And we quite like it.
