    'Shallow' hit-maker Mark Ronson puts brains before looks as he comes out as sapiosexual

    Chart-topper Mark Ronson has come out as sapiosexual. In case you're not familiar with the term, it means being attracted to intelligence above other traits -- or, in other words, putting brains before looks or gender.

    Ronson, 44, is known for a string of successful collaborations with A-list artists from Amy Winehouse and Adele to Miley Cyrus. This year, he won the Oscar for Best Original Song with "Shallow," interpreted by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in Hollywood's latest reimagining of "A Star Is Born."

    Speaking on ITV's Good Morning Britain on Thursday, he said: "I feel like I identify as sapiosexual." Anchors Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway congratulated him on being "out and proud."

    Author Nichi Hodgson appeared on the show earlier, defending the term. "The definition of sapiosexuality means intelligence first," she said.

    "I have dated men, women, transmen, transwomen, and across the gender spectrum and identify now as bisexual," she added. "The thing that has linked all these people has been their brains."

    Arguing that research on the subject validates the term, Hodgson said: "We know that a certain percentage of the population is also sapiosexual. They just might not know it themselves, because we haven't used the term before."

    "It's always existed, we just didn't have a word for it," she said.

    Ronson heard the exchange as he waited backstage. He admitted he didn't know there was a word for sapiosexuality until he heard it on the show.

    In the interview, Mark Ronson also spoke of his divorce from French actress and singer Joséphine de La Baume last year, and his friendship with Miley Cyrus and her recent split from Liam Hemsworth.
    Congratulations king Mark on your erm, “coming out”.

    Sooo if you're gay or straight or bisexual you can't put intelligence first? Oh my, some of these terms are just outright ridiculous. In trying to make everything wide and not label it in more traditional views, people are coming up with so many roll eyes worthy labels.

    This Nichi Hodgson sounds like she's confusing terms. What she describes in her quote, to my knowledge, is pansexuality, but she goes on to say she identifies as bisexual.

    At this stage, LGBT is widely accepted by Western societies, leading to such pretentious terms as 'sapiosexual' - it's basically no longer a big deal what gender Mark Ronson is sexually into. However, LGBT status is still illegal in 33 out of 54 African countries - not even talking about marriage or social acceptance. And that has to change the soonest possible...

    It sounds a little like the definition of 'demisexual' (sexual attraction only to someone they've formed a strong emotional bond with) although at first I thought it sounded like a tree hugging fetish hearing the name (sap=trees... anyone?) Haha.

    It is becoming a tad bit pretentious though you have to admit, but whatever..... good on him, you do you Mr Ronson. Haha.

    So... he is basically gay. Couldn't he just say that? We don't need a gazillion stupid labels for the same thing.
