Måns Zelmerlöw has dropped a bombshell and made a lot of fans very happy by admitting that he would date a guy – if he got the right feeling. Answering a reader’s question in Swedish newspaper Metro‘s webchat Fråga Mig (Ask Me), Måns explained that gender didn’t matter – if he felt an attraction to a guy, he would date that guy.

The Fråga Mig series sees Måns answering questions from Metro‘s readers, and Metro had a quick Q&A with Måns before the video chat. In that, he said he was happy with his Swedish nickname Mums-Mums (Yum-Yum), even though he’d rather have something slightly cooler.

Måns also confessed that he’s not entirely happy with the shape of his bottom and would like to have a firmer behind. But he’s hitting the gym ahead of Eurovision, so there’s a chance to shape up that part of his anatomy.

In the video series, Måns shows off his rapping skills, and talks about weird encounters with fans. But it’s the revelation that he’d date a guy that has Swedish media buzzing.

Måns was also asked by a reader if he was currently in love with anyone. He said he wasn’t, but intriguingly added that he was close. We wonder if there is a lucky girl or boy in Måns’ life… or maybe he’s just talking about the love he has for his dog, Messi.

Stay tuned to wiwi.tv for coverage of Måns’ first rehearsal in Vienna on Thursday, and full coverage of all the rehearsals this week.

Omg this is really funny and ridiculous! He really wants to win and he doesnt know what to do, and to make that! He knows very well that he has not any special voice, or song either! He think that he’s gonna “win” the gay population because he said that could date a man! What makes him believe that everybody loves him! Haha so cheap!

This year the winner gonna be woman! Georgia, albania, estonia, russia! Otherwise: Estonia, Azerbaijan, Armenia

P.s just check on web his thoughts about gay people!

I think this sounds cheap. Of course he would date a guy if he had feelings for one. But he has not. Earlier on Swedish television, he said “homosexuality is a deviation”. He would not have said that if he was interested in someone of the same gender.

how pathetic to try and influence gay audience to secure their votes to rain on him to win esc, that won’t happen this is song contest not winning attention and votes contest so please stop being so raugh and try and be as cool as you can be to focus on your work for eurovision because your song is nothing special anyway at least you can be honest and work for it to gain respect, but you already made fool of yourself, don’t tell the god I’ve made a mess, can’t do what has been done, he said go and… Read more »

Making such a annoucement two weeks before the final seems just calculated. Even if it is true. What is wrong with Sweden? Erica Saade says only Australia can beat Mans, now this. The two very unfortunate moves. A few weeks ago I defended Mans here against too much criticism, but now I feel that some people maybe were right. Pity, since the song itself is good.

Very convenient thing to say a week before the Eurovision…especially after the apparent homophobic remark he made earlier in the year…very convenient indeed. I bet if he was asked if he was ever with a guy, he would say no. Although, getting the gay voters on side could be the difference between going to Stockholm or Rome next year. Clever stunt Mans!

Does he say it just because he know that many esc fans are gay? I don’t believe him (because of previous comments), and anyway I don’t care about who’s gay or not. It won’t make that I want to vote for him.. Actually, I hate his song hahaha

Is this the same guy who was homophobic before entering? I think he really wants to win this. Not authentic, so not for me.

Mans is playing to win. He must be hoping the comment will get him a few more votes.

keysaa

He’s an opportunist! He just wants the votes from the gay fans as Conchita Wurst last year, because gay ESC-fans are the biggest voting-lobby. He is not gay or bi or something. He even hates gay people. The thing is that he has sex appeal and he has a good song, so gay people will vote for him. And like Aram MP3 last year, he has to show: “No, I’m not homophobic” …

I don’t believe him! His agent has obviously told him to say this so any gay Eurovision fans who don’t feel comfortable voting for him after his homophobic comments might change their mind. *yawn*

HE IS DOING THE SAME WRONG STATEMENTS AS LAST YEARS ARAM MP3.

Something is wrong with that guy ??
Why all these statements, for what ??
These comments are really useless & I don’t buy them either.

He should better concentrate himself for his staging & performing,
but maybe he feels that is already the winner.
I don’t think so Mans ! THAT’S NOT THE RIGHT WAY

Like so many of the comments I’m not buying it either. What is wrong with this guy? He is a PR disaster. One minute he is calling homosexuality an “avvikelse”, then he wants to date a guy. This could all backfire on Måns. The biggest threat to Sweden winning this year is Måns himself. This does sound fake.

Another lame attempt by mr Mans to make us forget what he let slip out just a few months. His PR people should stop being so desperate.

Gay people need respect, not gaybaiting. Perhaps somebody should tell him that. His sudden “conversion” to bisexuality fools no-one.

He’s just a bit naive though.. thinking that a comment like that won’t spread so easily in the Eurovision world..

I’d date a guy too! Sure, I’m a straight woman, but this is just further proof that Måns and I have so much in common. He loves his dog, I love his dog…he’s Swedish, I love Sweden…his name has four syllables, mine has three…oh, dammit. There goes that then.

Seriously though, I don’t think we should read anything into this comment by MZW. It’s just an answer to a question. I doubt he still feels like he’s having to “compensate” for those ancient remarks (if he ever did) after all of his associations with QX and whatnot.

Now all he needs to do is to pull of a Krista Siegfrids, bring a guy on stage, and kiss him.

Then people will stop labeling him a homophobe.

Marketing? Threre are other ways and in other places that he could have said this if it was meant for the eurovision fans. And I think you should do it in a language that many people understand. In english and not in swedish. The question was made by swedes and for the swedes just for fun. But of course some take the chance of making this look like a pr-stunt. I knew it..
