Music producer Mark Ronson opened up about his “coming out” as sapiosexual during a recent interview with ITV’s Good Morning Britain.
“Coming out” as sapiosexual is not really a thing and he got a ton of heat for it.
During Rolling Stone’s interview, Ronson was candid about not being fully informed about the identification. “I do not consider myself part of any marginalized community and I apologize if anybody misunderstood or took offense to it.”
Ronson explained that he was told that the show had a recent segment on sapiosexuality and they asked him how he felt about it. “What is it?” he asked. He said they explained it as: “Well, when you’re attracted to intelligence.” And he said, “That sounds great. Of course, who wouldn’t be?”
“And they were like basically like, ‘OK, Mark Ronson identifies himself as sapiosexual, that’s great,'” he continued. “And then they proceeded to ask me about Miley Cyrus’ dating life and something else I probably wasn’t that informed to talk about, either, and then that was it.”
While perusing Twitter, Ronson started seeing some negativity surrounding his remarks. “It sounds like I went on a TV show to be like, ‘Guys, I have some big news!’ And the fact that I would go on and sort of declare myself — like as a heterosexual white male — part of any marginalized community was terrifying to me, or just embarrassing.”
Thank goodness that has been cleared up so we can all move on now.
