Mark Ronson is setting the record straight about his sexuality, again.

The Oscar-winning music producer and Lady Gaga collaborator made headlines late last week when he seemingly came out as sapiosexual during an appearance on UK morning talk show Good Morning Britain, but in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the DJ clarified that his comments weren't a coming out. 

"I do not consider myself part of any marginalized community and I apologize if anybody misunderstood or took offense to it," Ronson said, admitting he was not totally informed about what exactly it means to identify as sapiosexual, which Psychology Today defines as "someone who finds intelligence and the human mind to be the most sexually attractive feature for a potential sexual relationship."

"It sounds like I went on a TV show to be like, ‘Guys, I have some big news!’ And the fact that I would go on and sort of declare myself—like as a heterosexual white male—part of any marginalized community was terrifying to me, or just embarrassing," he then said, looking back on the Good Morning Britain interview.
