According to the report, which has not been confirmed, the singer told a Chicago radio station: “I will not go to great lengths to spread this news. The timing is bad, I hadn’t realized it was April Fool’s Day but it’s been pointed out to me and I don’t want to go too public with this. I don’t want it to be disregarded as a joke. My sexuality is no joke to me and it’s come out a little faster than I’d hoped.”
The singer was said to be testing the waters before coming out on a national program this week.
This report has not been confirmed by Mars or his team and CNN has yet to vet their report.
