Chris Munro Wants You To 'Go': VIDEO

Chris

Out gay Canadian singer Chris Munro has released a steamy music video for his new single, "Go." Munro, who jumped into the entertainment game somewhat late compared to other artists, talks about how his inhibitions and fears held him back from going after his dreams:

“Growing up I never thought somebody like me could possibly do something that I really wanted to do. So I went to school for Economics! But as the culture started to shift to be more accepting of gay artists—and more importantly as I became more accepting of myself—I got inspired to chase my dreams with no regrets. Ever since I started writing and performing music people have told me to hide the fact that I’m gay so I would be accepted by a mainstream audience. My response is always the same: If I can’t be myself than why would I even bother to create music in the first place?”

  3. Good looking guy. Ironically, the backup dancers make him look less attractive by comparison. -- Sadly, he isn't a very good singer, and the lyrics are inane. If he actually wants to be taken seriously as an artist, he might want to put his shirt back on.

  4. While I appreciate his backstory, he does sort of resemble a power bottom from Falcon Studios (not a bad thing, actually...just sayin'). I wish him a better choice of songs in the future, though, without the autotune.

  5. Meh, Sounds like video dance music that they play at Badlands in Sacramento.

  6. B-A-D as in not Good artisically on so many levels from vocals to lyrics to the "workout" choreography - LOL. Gay is the new Black. Nice eye candy, though. I wish him the best.

  9. Hot guy on the model, actor, dancer catagory. Chris must demonstrate more of his vocal talents and range than here to further his musical aspirations. I wish him luck.

  10. I know him. He used to (still is?) a server at many of the events I produce.

  11. Wow. That sure was crap.

  12. Kind of bad, musically. Dull lyrics. Overall, pop trash stuff.

    That said, go with your dreams. You made it to Towleroad. Even if it turns out to be the end of the road.

  13. Gee, as Canadian, I really wanted to like this video more than I do :-/

  14. Fun to look at and probably a great dance tune. And I'm with CD in DC, board shorts are over. Start showing some leg men, screw what other people think. Board shorts are shorts, they're mediums. ;-)

  16. Wow...that sucked!

  17. I listened to the whole thing - which is saying something. I found it nicely hypnotic. Will I buy his CD? Not sure. I need to hear more.

  18. God, I hate it when people sing at you. "Look how much emotion my face is conveying!"

    Kinda hot.

  19. Chris: 10. Video: 8. Song: 6. Singing: 5. I'd like to hear him again with a different piece of music of maybe something acoustic.

  20. Autotuned. Leaves me wonder what his actual voice sounds like.

  21. lame circuit party music. blah.

  22. The whole time I'm watching this video, I'm thinking to myself "this can't be real, it must be a spoof of dance music". Unfortunately, it wasn't. Ok, first, the lyrics are just inane and stupid "I'm taking back my personal power" or something like that???? His voice is weak. The choreography looks like it was done by an aerobic instructor who dreams of being a dance choreographer. I have not doubt these guys are all huge girly queens, butching it up as best they can for this video. They are now all wearing their fuzzy slippers and bathrobes, exhausted.

  23. It's difficult to judge which is more inane: the music, the video, the singer, or the comments here.

    Gay culture is dead. I'm becoming an Episcopalian.

  24. Muted at 1:30 and thoroughly enjoyed from that point on.
