'Biggest Idiot' Mika

Mika says most people think he's "the biggest idiot in the world" when they first meet him.

The 'Love Today' singer admits he makes a bad first impression with co-workers, prompting many to quit immediately.

The 26-year-old pop star said: "When I first work with people they either think I'm the biggest idiot in the world and quit and go around spreading total nonsense about me, or they get me and stick with me.

"My band and crew will be with me forever."

When it comes to fellow artists, British soul singer Adele is one of the only people Mika trusts.

He explained: "If I had to choose one I respect the most, it's her. In this business, it's dangerous because every night someone shoves a drink in your hand.

"You're surrounded by monsters. You learn who to trust. But I do like to party and let my hair down because otherwise you end up like Celine Dion.

"I just have to protect myself and surround myself with a group of people I trust and we work, have fun and are discreet."
