Wotyougot recently chatted it up with the cutie pie that is Mika, discussing his upcoming third album The Origin Of Love + his new relationship, his career, music piracy, and a little song he wrote for Madonnaâ€™s new album called Gang Bang:
“It was full of all these statements that my grandfather used to say, like a fish out of water, like a bat out of hell, things like you may think itâ€™s you I like the most but Iâ€™m just keeping my enemies close. These are all things that my granddad used to say. He was kind of this burly Arab guy who lived in New York. Madonna heard this song because William Orbit presented it to her, and I didnâ€™t know. As far as I was concerned it was just a song that I was writing for myself, and then Madonna liked it and she recorded her version and in the end she adapted it. I was never in the studio with Madonna. The song got changed I think countless times and in the end it was called â€˜Gang Bangâ€™, probably because there was so many people that worked on it and itâ€™s kind of cool. I think itâ€™s probably my favorite thing off that last record. Itâ€™s kind of grown up in a weird sort of way. Itâ€™s got this bitterness about it which is kind of cool to hear from her.”
