Popworld caught up with Mika in a Q&A, and asked the singer how he felt about being compared to the likes of Freddie Mercury and Scissor Sisters. “Well, Freddie Mercury firstly, slightly terrifying. I mean, yeah, he was a fu**ing genius and he stayed good from the beginning to the end which is the scary thing,” he responded. “I would never compare myself to him, though, I just can’t. And Scissor Sisters, I just think it’s fun and flattering. Bring it on, it’s cool. At least they’re not comparing me to Barbara Streisand in her early years, then I’d be a little upset because she seems like a really scary woman.”
