Arpad Miklos has a new boyfriend, and he’s retiring from gay porn FOREVER!
Kidding, kidding! This is actually a still from a new music video by indie artist Perfume Genius. Nearly every other blog we read has written about it (), so we thought we’d jump on the bandwagon and pretend we’re as cool as them.
Hint! We are not as cool as them. In fact, we didn’t know shit about Mike Hadreas or Perfume Genius until this video came out. That said, he seems like a pretty cool guy! Here’s a quote from a piece on , in whicb he addresses the topic of being gay in the indie rock universe:
“I’m very conscious about it, but I also want it to not be a big deal. But I still get nervous. With this video, my boyfriend was like, ‘Are you sure you want to, you know, be so gay?’ But I think people are smarter than that. And if Rick in Pittsburgh or whatever isn’t going to listen to my music because I’m gay, fuck it.”
Perfume Genius’ sophomore effort Put Your Back N 2 It will be available on February 20th through Matador Records. Head to listen to “All Waters”, another track from the album. If you’re still not intrigued, we feel obligated to tell you that the set will also include a song about “unedited homemade basement porn”.
