Jason Mraz addressed his bisexuality through music
Jason Mraz has revealed he nearly recorded an album titled L-G-Me-T referencing his bisexuality.
The “I’m Yours” singer spoke about being attracted to both men and women in June 2018, in a letter to Billboard magazine marking Pride Month.
In an interview with Boston radio station WBUR, Jason Mraz opened up about his decision to publicly come out as bi at age 40.
He explained: “I was making an example of my own sexual preferences, which at times have been on either the female gender or the male gender, so bisexuality, if you will.”
“Most of my life, I assumed that everyone must be B.”

Mraz, who married wife Christina Carano in 2015, added: “As I was writing the letter… I realized I couldn’t write it to a community that stood over there. I was with that community, so it felt almost like a lie to say, ‘I’m with you.’
“It felt more comforting and more authentic of me to say, ‘Yeah, this is who I am. I’ve been able to stand on both sides.'”
Jason Mraz wanted to call album L-G-Me-T to reference his bisexuality
Mraz told the outlet: “Being the B in LGBT is sort of the one that’s least, I don’t know — it has the least potency, if you will.
“Honestly, most of my life, I assumed that everyone must be B until they land their identity, but for me, I do feel comfortable in my B.”
The singer revealed: “In fact, one of my working titles for this new album which is called Know. was L-G-Me-T, where I put me as the letter B.”
