Mark Ronson Reveals He Identifies As Sapiosexual On Good Morning Britain
Music mogul Mark Ronson has revealed he is sapiosexual, which means he is attracted to intelligence.
The musician, songwriter and producer appeared on Good Morning Britain yesterday to discuss his new album Late Night Feelings, but found himself getting involved in another interesting topic being discussed in the studio earlier that morning.
Presenter Kate Garraway explained to her fellow host Ben Shephard that Mark had become 'very involved' in a debate backstage about sapiosexuality.
Garraway asked him: "Now we know you are single... You are identifying as a man who likes intellect?"
Ronson replied: "Yeah, I didn't know that there was a word for it.
"I was really enjoying that segment - we were all arguing backstage in the dressing room with a couple of your producers.
"And yeah I feel like I am identifying as sapiosexual."
Shephard added: "So you are coming out as sapiosexual. Out and proud on Good Morning Britain."
Earlier in the show, author Nichi Hodgson had been on the show to explain what sapiosexuality meant.
She said: "The definition means intelligence first then attraction. I date men and women and identify as bisexual, and I realised the thing that linked all people that I have dated has been their brains."
She added: "We know a certain percentage of the population is sapiosexual. It's always existed, we just didn't have a word for it."
Ronson has previously been married to a woman, French actor and singer Joséphine de La Baume - who had appeared in the music video for 'The Bike Song'.
The two married in 2011, but in May 2017 it was reported that de La Baume had filed for divorce from Ronson.
Ronson was also engaged to actor Rashida Jones, but their relationship ended around one year after they became engaged.
While on Good Morning Britain, Ronson also shared an exclusive clip for the video for new track 'Don't Leave Me Lonely', which features vocals from Grammy-award-winning American singer-songwriter Yebba.
The new album also features the likes of Camila Cabello, Lykke Li and Miley Cyrus - who recently split from husband Liam Hemsworth.
"Everybody's heartbreak is in this record," Ronson added.
"Maybe not everybody was going through a breakup at the time, but we all know what that feeling's like."
