Lil Nas X Brings The Gay Drama — And The Butt Stuff — In THAT'S WHAT I WANT Music Video Comments (0)

Lil Nas X has finally dropped his debut album (amazing — it feels like it has been out, considering all the singles!) Montero today, and it's accompanied by the music video for “That's What I Want.”

I am not typically enamored of his music, but I love this bop.

In the clip, we get an unapologetically sexual and romantic relationship between two Black gay men, stretched across scenes including a football game, a Brokeback Mountain setting, a homestead and — spectacularly — a wedding at which Nas, in white gown, has no groom and Tammy Faye-style mascara tears.

It's hard to overstate how momentous it is to see something like this in our culture being presented as mainstream. In the past, male rock stars were all about being as macho as possible. Gay male rock stars were closeted and butch. 

Meanwhile, Nas gets fucked in the ass in this video.

It's 2:41 of queer perfection ...

Tuesday was the NYC premiere of The Eyes of Tammy Faye at the SVA on W. 23rd. The film — written by Abe Sylvia from the same-named 2000 doc by World of Wonder's Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato — feels like an assertive correction of the record regarding televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker (Jessica Chastain), who fell from grace along with her husband Jim (Andrew Garfield) in one of the biggest financial scandals of the '80s.

Billy Porter Intros Lil Nas X At The MTV VMAs, Madonna And Her Ass Kick Off The Show Comments (0)

The 2021 MTV VMAs were off to a bootylicious start when Madonna — following a sweet sort of updating of her “Happy Anniversary, Darling” spot for MTV (that was wishing the network a happy 1oth, this was wishing it a happy GULP 40th) — showed up in full Dita Parlo gear, turning around to helpfully provide a big ass to kiss for any of her haters.

It was good TV, and probably great promo for her October 8 Madame X concert film on Paramount+.

Lil Nas X killed another live performance on a major awards show, arriving to save the somewhat boring MTV VMAs at the Barclays Center Sunday night.

I also loved that he was introduced by another Black gay man, Billy Porter:

Also liked that the show welcomed back other '80s icons in honor of its anniversary, including Cyndi Lauper (demanding women's rights) and David Lee Roth. I actually wish they'd gone even further into it and gotten Janet Jackson and a host of others I'm thinking of. (Maybe Janet could close the show still, as it isn't over yet.)
