Mark Ronson Reveals He Identifies As Sapiosexual On Good Morning Britain

The 44-year-old music producer revealed he identifies as sapiosexual, meaning he is attracted to intelligence before gender, after watching a debate about the issue on "Good Morning Britain", while waiting to go on the show.

"The definition of sapiosexuality means intelligence first", she said. "Intelligence for me is the most important attractive trait in a person - and I've dated men, women, trans men, trans women, across the gender spectrum. the thing that has linked all these people that I have dated has been their brains".

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.

The star told hosts Kate Garraway and Ben Shepherd that he identifies as a sapiosexual after a debate on the subject on Thursday's show.

The topic came up after French minister Marlen Schiappa was mocked for calling herself sapiosexual. "Maybe not everyone was going through a breakup but we all know that feeling".

Sapiosexuals are people who value a "meeting of minds" more than physical attraction.

As Daily Beast writer Samantha Allen writes: "We don't need a special word - especially one modeled after minority identity labels like "homosexual" and "bisexual" - to describe a completely normative facet of human attraction".

In 2003-2004 Ronson was engaged to "The Office" actress Rashida Jones and recently dated Rebecca Schwartz, a crew member on "Saturday Night Live".

The couple married in 2011, but in May 2017 it was reported that de La Baume had filed for divorce from Ronson.

He was on GMB to promote his new album, Late Night Feelings, which features the likes of Miley Cyrus, Angel Olsen, Lykke Li and Camila Cabello.

We're not sure how much thought he put into this, but get ready to be the face of a new label, Mark Ronson.
