Jason Mraz says going through the ‘shame’ and ‘guilt’ of divorce helped him accept his sexuality

Jason Mraz revealed he was a member of the LGBTQ+ community in 2018 and announced earlier this year that he and his wife Christina Carano had divorced

Jason Mraz opens up about his sometimes difficult path to self-acceptance since coming out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community.

The “Have It All” singer, 46, spoke to GLAAD about how he’s learned to embrace his identity since coming out publicly in 2018, and also revealed how he competed on Dancing with the stars helped him on his journey.

“I had to play a lot of other scenarios before I got here. It’s both hard to do these things and hard to sort them out, and what I’m basically describing is a divorce, you know? he said. “And it’s very difficult. You carry a lot of shame and guilt.

Mraz married Christina Carano in 2015 and in 2018, revealed in an interview with Billboard that he had sexual experiences with men, even while dating Carano. He said at the time that although he wondered if he was gay, Carano explained it as being “two-spirit,” a Native American term for someone who can love both men and women.

The Grammy-winning singer said he “really liked that” wording, although he announced in June that he and Carano had since divorced.

In his interview with GLAAD, Mraz — who was recently named to Out100, Out The magazine’s annual compilation of the year’s most influential LGBTQ+ people — said that as he learned to come to terms with himself, he felt the need to heal his past while still moving forward.

“You want to heal as many relationships from the past as possible and at the same time step into this new acceptance and this new identity or whatever it is that I’m claiming, and that’s hard too,” he said. “So being on the Out100 is… It’s nice to be recognized.”

Mraz is currently participating in season 32 of Dancing with the stars alongside partner Daniella Karagach, and said it was her dance-filled music video for “I Feel Like Dancing” that first caught the attention of the show’s producers.

The singer said he didn’t expect the experience to be as emotional as it was, but he enjoyed the experience.

“All day long you look in the mirror, and it can be difficult for anyone, any human being, to accept looking in the mirror,” he explained. “On top of that, my partner is asking me to move in a way I’ve never moved before, and my reaction is, ‘I look stupid.’ And then you cross that and you’re like, “Okay, I feel pretty cool.” “And then it ends up becoming trust, and so it’s a journey.

Mraz said he feels like learning your dance routines every week is a metaphor for life, because sometimes you wake up feeling “uncomfortable for no reason.”

“This happens to me all the time. And I have to understand, accept myself, come back into my body, move forward with life in a way that makes me happy, and so at the end of the day I feel accomplished and I feel happy to be myself. he said. “Dance is a wonderful means of transformation and self-acceptance.”

Mraz released his latest album, Rhythmic, magical and mystical radical walk, in June. He told PEOPLE at the time that the record came amid a difficult period in his life that saw the death of his stepfather and his mother’s cancer diagnosis.

“The title of the album is about life,” he said at the time. “Life is a mystical, magical, rhythmic, radical adventure. That’s what life is. And I prefer to see it that way because I want to enjoy the ride.”
