!! OMG, Perfume Genius and Arpad Miklos team up for fetish video !!
Singer/songwriter/fetish enthusiast Perfume Genius (a.k.a. Mike Hadreas) has released a music video in which he canoodles with macho gay porn star Arpad Miklos. In "Hood," off PG's forthcoming sophomore LP Put Your Back N 2 It, the hulking, hairy Hungarian tenderly (i.e. fetishistically) applies make-up to his wispy co-star.
"The song's about how if someone knew you 100%, they would go away," Hadreas explained in an interview with Pitchfork. "So, in the video, I didn't acknowledge him until I was fully done-up in all my gear and my wig. That's how I feel in general. That freaky shit underneath-- that's kind of who I am, really."
As for casting Miklos? "I don't like the idea that people would automatically think something is nasty," he added. "If I just got my boyfriend to be in there with me, people could just pass it off as cute because we're both boyish. I like the idea of not having things be so obvious."
Put Your Back N 2 It is out Feb. 21 on Matador Records. Perfume Genius will tour North America in March and April. Check out the full itinerary after the jump.
