Mark Ronson is happy to finally figure out who he truly is. The producer came out as sapiosexual on-air in an interview with Good Morning Britain on Thursday (Sept.19).   

"You are identifying as a man who likes intellect?” host Kate Harraway asked Ronson, to which he replied, "Yeah, I didn’t know that there was a word for it. We were all arguing backstage in the dressing room with a couple of your producers. And yes, I feel like I identify as sapiosexual.”

Earlier in the show, author Nichi Hodgson helped defined what the term means following French equality minister Marlene Schiappa's identification as sapiosexual. “The definition means intelligence first then attraction,” she explained. “I date men and women and identify as bisexual, and I realized the thing that linked all people that I have dated has been their brains.”

“We know a certain percentage of the population is sapiosexual," she added. "It’s always existed, we just didn’t have a word for it.”
