Michael Angelakos, the frontman of “Passion Pit”, an Indie pop project revealed his sexual orientation and the end of his marriage to Kirst Mucci.
There have been instances in the past when Angelakos has frankly discussed his mental health problems. He had also opened up about his struggle with bipolar disorder.
It was indeed an admirable thing for the musician. However, it looks like the singer has taken one step further when he made a public confession by stating that he is a gay.
Angelakos was speaking at “B.E.E.”, a podcast by Bret Easton Ellis when he admitted about his sexual orientation and also spoke in detail about why his marriage ended.
It was a candid interview for the critically acclaimed singer, where he also discussed his desperation to be straight because of his marriage to Mucci, his estranged wife.
The singer said that he had shared the fact to some people in his extremely close circle, as he was not sure about how to discuss it with others. It seems Angelakos needed a lot of guts to own up to his real identity, as he decided finally to come out–on air. He eventually thought that it would be good for him if he admits it on that show.
Angelakos does not know what exactly happened to make him feel that he is gay. He thinks it was his gut feeling. It was the same feeling that made him decide that he needs to speak to people about his sexual orientation.
The announcement of Angelakos’ divorce from his stylist wife Mucci was made in August, this year. He confessed that his relationship with his wife was the toughest thing to come to terms with. He was desperate to be straight as he loved her too much, the singer told the host.
According to the singer, the decision for them to separate was one of the most painful moments in his life.
However, despite their breakup, Mucci was his biggest supporter in turbulent times.
When he was going through a dilemma in his personal life, it had been Mucci who convinced him that the singer needs to seriously figure out issues related to his sexuality as he cannot despise himself because of his sexual preferences.
