Timomatic's not usually one to talk about his sexuality.
In a world where Miley Cyrus twerks, JLo booty-pops and Rihanna wears body bling instead of actual clothing, Timomatic's now "comfortable" going shirtless… and his sensual music video for recent tune 'Delilah' proves he's at ease with his buff bod.
"I'm very comfortable with my own sexuality," he exclusively told TheFIX. "And feeling sexy comes from a place of confidence. It's tapping into that inner self-esteem and knowing you're the motherf------ s---, as opposed to saying to yourself "okay, I'm going to act sexy now." So we're guessing there's no mirror mantras pre-filming?
Although we truly feel he was born with a six pack, the former Australia's Got Talent mentor says getting into shape was hard work… and that things got "pretty nasty during his heavy dieting".
"For six months of this year, I was working with a personal trainer to create the body I wanted for the next phase of my life," he added. "It took a lot of focus, but it's not something I could ever sustain. I got pretty nasty around that time!"
Slamming the split rumours that have surrounded his relationship with girlfriend Talia Fowler, Timomatic reaffirmed that his privacy is very important to him.
"I treat rumours like fire, they only get bigger if you add wood to them," he told us. "I think each to their own, but I like to guard my personal life quite a lot. I think when you're love life is in a media forum, it's not necessarily taken as seriously. What people seem to forget is that for everyone involved, it's real life. It's not that I don't want people knowing anything about my life, but I'd rather just put my guard up and experience what I'm feeling."
After a year of "self-discovery and creation", Timomatic is now going back to his roots to find out who and what he represents… which now includes his involvement in the Beats 4 Breast Cancer Concert held in Sydney on December 10th.
"Any kind of event that goes beyond music for music's sake is a really powerful thing," he said. "It's definitely nice to be a part of something that is going to make a change.
"I also think that as a celebrity, we have a duty of service to people to use our status to make positive changes and any platform we can do that in is really powerful."
