Superstar DJ Felix Jaehn Comes Out As Bisexual

"Sometimes I was more interested in girls, sometimes more interested in boys."

Felix Jaehn, the German DJ/producer who gave us an unforgettable remix of OMI’s “Cheerleader,” has come out as bisexual in an interview with German weekly Die Zeit. The 23-year-old says he’s ready to spend his life with someone, regardless of their gender.

“Sometimes I was more interested in girls, sometimes more interested in boys,” he told the magazine.

His “Cheerleader” remix topped the charts in 14 countries, including Germany, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States, where it became a popular wedding song.

Jaehn also released a single, “Shine” in 2014, and a remix of.Rufus and Chaka Khan’s iconic “Ain’t Nobody.” Last year, he collaborated with Mike Williams on the track “Feel Good.”
