If he were a woman, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg would wear high heels.

Wait, what?

The big cheese of the Big Apple made the admission -- currently causing you to picture him in a pair of jet black pumps, admit it  -- during an interview with The New Yorker's Rebecca Mead.

To be fair, Bloomberg's comment isn't completely out of left field. The remark was made at a party celebrating the memoir by Tamara Mellon, co-founder of Jimmy Choo.

"I like women and I think that they look stunning in high heels -- not that they look bad without high heels. I wouldn't criticize anybody," Bloomberg was quoted as saying. "But, if I were a woman, I think I would wear high heels."

Bloomberg went to say that he does not wish that high heels were in fashion for men, despite his relatively short stature.

"I don't care if a woman is taller than me, with or without heels," Bloomberg said. "I just like women."
