Mika doesn't want to be like Freddie, he said he influences him musically. Stop trashing that guy, he didn't ask for the comparison.

Mika's one of those wannabe Freddies...

Far from it, actually.

But he probably thinks that trying to be like Freddie....or even using reverse psychology and being humble about it, will help him gain popularity.

Reverse psychology? Pffft.

Bottom line: He tries too hard. As a new artist.

Nah.. He tries as hard as any new artist would. One needs to try to achieve success!

The song Grace Kelly is catchy.

Yes. ;)

I LOVE his album! It is original, clearly influenced by more artists than only Freddie or Queen, and absolutely positive. I think it is one of the best releases since Freddie has left us. I love the whole range of songs, the differnces, and i even sometimes think i'm listening to mister Wobbie Williams...And i love that guy too... it is NOT about who is trying to copy or be who...NO! Mika had a few songs, recorded them brilliantly and if people want to compare...let them. Music is not meant to be compared. Music is entertainment. And Mika entertains. Me anyway! And the songs and clip are delightfully poppy, catchy and about nothing at all...he is not (like Mr. George Michael) a priest telling the world what to do...he is not trying to teach or improve..he's only entertaining....(quote Freddie: it's disposable pop, you consume it like a coca cola: you listen to one song, and then you move on to another....). In my humble opinion, we should be happy that there is still a reative mind out there, who is refreshingly clever and has a nice approach to the musicbizz. YES, i like the bloke and his music. And if this was a debutalbum, i can't wait till the next! I hope he'll turn out to be a true new star, and that he will keep on entertaining as he has now started to to. He has nothing to do with Queen, as had Queen nothing to do with Led Zeppelin, to whom they were constantly compared in the late sixtees, early seventies....people never seem to stop doing this...and it proves that the masses are still so dumb...still comparing after 40 years...and it is not even about that....Mika is an artist in his own right, and proud of his most important influences: Queen for instance..and THAT should fill the hearts of TRUE Queenfans with pride, and a warm feeling. I feel, because of a guy like Mika, that i chose the right band in the past...and if i were a musician, i too, would be very very proud about the good taste and choice of influence-source i have...especially if it was Queen! Not to forget to mention that i wpould love to master music that well, that i could make new songs that good, that others would say: wooow...that sounds just as nice and poppy and creative as Queen! If i were a musician? THAT would be the crown on my work! The confimation i did it right! So...stop comparingMika to Queen and / or Freddie...and start listening to what the guy really made!


lifelong loyal and dedicated Queenfan.

could we all wait for mika to have another few hits and albums ?

i love grace kelly, but he's a one hit wonder for now in my opinion, not that it's bad ;-)...and he does not sound like freedie, a few sounds or twitches dont make him more than the influences he has grown with.

In the song Mika doesn't say that he wants to be like Freddie. While he was looking for a label, the companies wanted him to have a particular style in order to please them(hence the Grace Kelly-Freddie thing)but Mika wanted to have his own voice and style.
