Felix Jaehn, the German DJ behind the chart-topping remix of OMI’s “Cheerleader” and his own hits like "Ain't Nobody," recently came out as bisexual.

In an interview with Germany’s ZEIT magazine, the 23-year-old producer said that he wanted to find someone to spend the rest of his life with, regardless of gender. Translated from German, Jaehn said, “Now I dream of finding the person I want to share my life with, man or woman.”


​Jaehn also detailed in the interview how growing up in a small village influenced the way he approached his sexuality. ““As a teenager, that influences you. And when you realize that you also find guys attractive, that can make you unsure," he said. 

The DJ also mentioned that the writing of his new album, I, served as an inspiration for him to open up about his life. “If you choose such a title, it's time to show your whole self too,” he said.
