Sticky Fingers Mika

Sexually ambiguous singer Mika has big bucks now, but the gossip-mongers over at Popbitch have blown the lid off of Mika’s penny-pinching days:

[Mika] confessed that when he was recording his debut album in Miami a couple of years back he was too short of cash to splash out on many CDs but really wanted to listen to loads of new music for inspiration. So he chose a record store in Orange Grove, and used to walk around picking up discount stickers from old albums – like $2 and $4 – and stick them on his arm. Then quietly put them on the albums he wanted.

What a clever little scheme, except for the confession. If were the store’s owners, we’d be sending homeboy a bill.

    He sucks. Patrick Wolf ALL THE WAY!

  • hell's kitchen guy

    Please retire the phrase “sexually ambiguous.” You’re either a fag, a bisexual, straight or in the closet.

  • from L.A.

    he didn’t record his album in miami. he recorded at rocket carousel in los angeles, it’s in the album info.

  • Dilroy

    Is this the most relevant thing he has to confess? Either shit or get off the pot, coward.

  • chicken tonight

    yes, his album was recorded in L.A., but he did his demos in miami, before getting his record deal. he was using barry gibbs studio without his knowledge. an employee would let him do it at night. he was fired but then was rehired by gibb.

    Mika is way hotter than Patrick Wolf, whose legs i’d like to break.
