  1. Great follow up. Steve actually knows what he's doing. Releasing his second single two months after the first is a good move to build a loyal fanbase.

  2. Let's be real. Average talent with a pretty face and you're popping interested because he's gay. I would think folks could approach these things with less gay bias. It's no difference than the plethora of gay movies that show up each year and just suck…but everyone goes on.

  3. Good gay pop. Finally.

  4. steve is cool but YES he definitely needs to get POC in his video. NO representation for POC!

    i'm glad there are voices on this thread calling out steve's videos for the extreme whitewashing.

  5. Some of these complaints are ridiculous. The guy is good-looking. But, according to some of you, that means he shouldn't be allowed to do something like sing.

    As for the video being "too this" or "not enough that", remember that this guy has self-financed both songs and videos. He doesn't have unlimited funds to hire extras that match every race, ethnicity, and age group.

  6. Thank you TOM, those were my sentiments exactly.

  7. VERY critical crowd, as always. Bitchy queens indeed. Steve and his friends from the southwest suburbs partying on the beaches of Chicago-what's to criticize? He even included his Lemont high school band. Most of us do not live in gay ghettos and have an equal mix of good looking straight and gay friends. Get over yourselves!

  8. A lifetime of good looks helps when you're gay. It's captured somewhere: in those photos, or in the eye of that one on the city street, or all those cruisers in crowded clubs. Or then again, from the old lady who smiles as she passes.

  10. Here we go again...a bunch of amateur wannabe Billboard magazine music/video critics and social image experts disguised as bitter and loathing trolls infecting this site again. And the sad thing is the arrogance of their own negativity rather than celebrating the positive spirit of a talented singer/musician. Go get a life...Namaste.

  11. Trite, disappointing... it might be "fun and gay," but I don't care. Give me good music.

    Posted by: peter | Sep 7, 2013 3:34:42 AM


  12. And yikes... just because something is "catchy as hell" doesn't mean it's "genuinely good". Standards, people. Standards.

  13. Blond bf is adorable.

    Don't care. Song is boring. Stop adoring this guy because he's gay. Bleeerrrrg.

  15. We shouldn't settle for this kind of kitsch simply because it's nicely packaged. We belong to a tradition of brilliance, bravery and transgression. Don't forget that. Ask yourself if Oscar Wilde, Gore Vidal, James Baldwin or, hell, even Elton John could bear to hear this song more than once. Then question your own taste, and despair.

  16. Andy,

    Would you please implement Discus on your blog so that I can start downvoting all of these horrendous bitter queens that pollute your otherwise excellent blog?

  17. Ok dokey. I finally took the plunge...thank goodness for sleep-maintenance insomnia.
    It's actually not terribly bad for what it's trying to be. If it were Katy Perry with the same song and video, people would just think "oh, another cheesy Katy Perry song, a little off compared to the last one". As you can see it has an astonishing ratio of likes to dislikes on youtube, so clearly some of the teh gays like it, a lot. Particularly young ones or haven't yet or never will develop critical sensibilities. That being said:
    1) It is awfully banal and lightweight, even by the standards of pop music. I've seen ads for Abercrombie that were "deeper".
    2) His singing is so so. He better be taking voice lessons if he's taking this seriously. He probably wouldn't make it past Am Idol's second rounds, or the Voice's first round. There are other gay men trying to break into pop music with better voices, like Sam Sparro.
    3) Hey I think saw an Asian woman...so it's diverse. (kidding)

  18. Oh, and of course the elephant in the room if we're keeping track of this sort of thing...Adam Lambert. Orders of magnitude better singing, obviously.

  19. fun
    loving
    and oh so happy

  20. Pure fun. Personally I enjoy looking at beautiful young bodies bouncing around in various states of undress. If that's a crime, consider me guilty ! Oh, wait, there was music. Yea, that was nice too. A catchy tune.

  21. Takes so little to please some people. Be more discerning,folks. Unfortunately, a lot of music and other 'art' marketed at homosexuals is sh*tty, same as the stuff marketed at the general population. This music and video is at best mediocre. I understand some people are turned on by stuff like this, count me out.

    As far as the complaint about a lack of POC [people of color, i.e. colored people] the men in this vid have color just as much as officially designated 'people of color'. So-called white people European, Caucasian, and many North African people come in all shades of 'white', and a rainbow of eye and hair color. It wouldn't have hurt to have included some black, i.e. African descent guys, Asians, and yes 'Hispanic', although Hispanic and white can be indistinguishable.

  22. Oh my stars! Not enough people of color! Quick, lets judge every video by the proportion of non-white people!

    Pathetic little trolls.

    And I'm sure all of you whining that his voice isn't Pavarotti quality are currently spending the rest of your day posting nasty comments on all of Britney Spears' autotuned, awful videos, right? Riiiiiiight.

    Posted by: BS | Sep 7, 2013 8:57:20 AM


  23. Better yet, folks, let's spend the rest of the day downvoting all rap videos on YouTube that have less than 50% white people dancing in them. Yay! Faux racism! Commence navel gazing.

  24. Great to see this video! Keep it up Steve... wonderful to see healthy gay relationships in pop culture...!
