The American singer/songwriter opened up about his sexuality in an interview with Billboard.
The I Won’t Give Up star said he explored his sexual identity during his relationship with his wife, Christina Carano.
“I’ve had experiences with men, even while I was dating the woman who became my wife,” he said.
“It was like, ‘Wow, does that mean I am gay?’ And 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.”
Back in 2005, Mraz admitted that he had the potential to have a romantic relationship with a man, but hadn’t yet pursued it sexually – even if an experience with a friend almost led him there.
“I had a gay friend I was hanging out with just about everyday. We were basically best friends. It took me about three months before I realized, ‘Oh my god, we’re dating.’” he told Genre magazine.
“It wasn’t until we were out for dinner on Valentine’s Day that I realized we both we’re having a very romantic time together.
“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.”
He added: “I have a bisexually open mind, but I have never been in a sexual relationship with a man. If the right one came along, then sure.”
Even earlier this year during an interview with Pride Source he addressed his sexual fluidity.
“Yeah, I’m keeping more of my options open these days,” he told them. “The older I get, the more fearless I become. That’s not to say I’m absolutely fearless. (Long pause) Man, I should be really careful with my words, especially with this question.”
Asked if it’s the label he dislikes, he replied: “Were we to live in a society that was equal those labels wouldn’t really exist or matter except maybe at the DMV or someplace where, for some reason, you have to put down gender, race or age. I don’t get it. I don’t get why sexuality has to be such a big deal.
“You know, I’ve been invited by couples to join them and I’m really turned on by that. (Laughs) I’ve never taken them up on it, though.”
