Jason Mraz once famously sang “I’m Yours” to anyone who would listen.
In a new interview with Billboard, however, the artist explains why this is a tad bit ironic:
It turns out that, even while dating his wife, Mraz actually was NOT hers.
The dude slept around a lot before settling down — and not even with just one gender, either!
If you recall, the 41-year-old made headlines last month after writing the line “I am bi your side” in a love poem to the LGBTQ community in honor of gay pride month…
… and now we know why.
“Honestly, I didn’t realize it was going to be so telling,” he told the aforementioned publication about his poem, prior to dropping a rather explosive bombshell:
“But I’ve had experiences with men, even while I was dating the woman who became my wife. It was like, ‘Wow, does that mean I am gay?’”
Mraz was sleeping with men while dating his very serious girlfriend and now-wife???
And he continued in this interview:
“My wife laid it out for me. She calls it ‘two spirit,’ which is what the Native Americans call someone who can love both man and woman. I really like that.”
Oh, ummm. Okay then. Two spirit sexuality. There you have it, folks.
According to The New York Times, “Two Spirit” was a term coined in the early 1990s at a conference for gay and lesbian Native Americans.
It was used then as an umbrella phrase with no specific description of gender or sexual orientation.
Might that explain why Mraz, as you can see above and below, often holds up two fingers for his fans?
Mraz and Christina Carano got married in October of 2015 after four years of dating; they exchanged vows at the time in an intimate outdoor ceremony in Virginia.
The songwriter announced the news on Instagram back then, gushing that he was “the luckiest man in the world.”
“I felt an instant connection to her and have admired her integrity and practices since day one,” Mraz said years ago of Carano.
“She is whole-hearted in every action, is extremely generous, completely drama-free, and has the most intuitive-genius-mind in the kitchen.
“Not to mention her smile absolutely melts me.”
It’s also worth noting that this isn’t the first time Mraz has opened up about his sexuality.
In a 2005 interview with Genre magazine, the singer said he was “bisexually open-minded,” telling the publication:
“I have never been in a sexual relationship with a man. If the right one came along, then sure.”
In this case, he concluded:
“I had a gay friend I was hanging out with just about every day. We were basically best friends. It took me about three months before I realized, ‘Oh my god, we’re dating.’
“Right before I moved to California, he gave me a pretty strong-willed kiss goodbye, which I have never experienced before.
“Unfortunately, he had a little bit more facial hair than I like.”
