Did “Be As You Are” Singer Mike Posner Come Out As Bisexual?

"I want to have sex with men and women I haven’t met yet."

Mike Posner might have low-key come out as bisexual in his first book, which was released last March, but Twitter has just started to take notice.

The 30-year-old singer recently released the audiobook for his 2017 debut poetry collection, Tear Drops and Balloons. In a poem titled “A Song With Pitbull,” he declares, “I want to have sex with men and women I haven’t met yet.”

Fans have been questioning on social media whether this poem is Posner’s first public declaration of his bisexuality, but he has yet to acknowledge the speculation. Another poem in the collection is titled “i suck at girls.”

“Honestly, this project is dope af—i obviously read all the poems but I’m most proud of how we scored the entire book,” he writes on Instagram about the new audio recording.

“Fearlessly, Posner cuts quickly to the bone, speaks from the gut, and offers his perspective on the world,” reads an official description of the hardcover poetry collection. “By holding nothing back and showing no mercy in his words, he has created a body of work that showcases his ability to open his own wounds and show us what lies within.” 

Posner rose to fame in 2010 with his debut album, 31 Minutes to Takeoff, featuring breakout single “Cooler Than Me.” His 2016 follow-up, At Night, Alone, featured self-empowerment anthem “Be as You Are” and the Grammy-nominated hit “I Took a Pill in Ibiza.” I was born in detroit on a very, very, very, very, very, very, very cold day, his first spoken-word album, was released in January.

Rocking neon-green hair, the singer raised some eyebrows last year when he posted a series of homoerotic photos to promote Mansionz, his side project with Blackbear.
