Ferro told the mag he finally decided to come out because he wanted to live a happy life.
'For a long time I haven't felt good about myself...and after many tough years...I've come to the conclusion that I want to live better,' he confessed.
Tiziano also denied rumors that he was dating another man during the past few months.
'They said I was living a double life, that I was with a man. I would get very upset because I wished I had a boyfriend, but I had no one,' said Ferro who upset female Mexican fans a few years ago when he said they were all unattractive.
Ferro will reveal more details about his sexuality in the autobiography, 'Trent'anni e una chiacchierata con papa,' which reportedly goes on sale in Italy on October 20th.
