On Monday, Passion Pit's frontman Michael Angelakos came out as a gay during a very candid interview with Bret Easton Ellis. This news is particularly shocking as the Indie singer was previously married to his now estranged wife Kristina Mucci.
In regards to his struggle with coming out, he explained:
"I've told very few people in my personal small circles because I don't know how to talk about it, you know? When this was all happening recently, finally, I just decided it might be best to talk about it here. I don't really know what happened, but it's just one of those gut feelings. It's the same gut feeling I had when I said, 'Okay, I kind of just need to talk to people about the fact that I am. I'm gay.' And that's it. It just has to happen."
How brave! We couldn't be more impressed with the songwriter's candor.
