    Watching the interview on the Inside Edition link he actually seems smart, well spoken, and sincere – good for him for getting done what he wants to do! The interviewer there is hilariously ridiculous though – it’s like he’s doing a groundbreaking interview with a head of state! Tell me, “What is a go-go boy?” hahahahahhahah

    I don’t enjoy seeing presumably nice people fail, but this song was not a strong offering to debut on. Is it a ballad? Is it a rock anthem? It can’t make up its mind!

    And please throw that sleeveless denim shirt away. He has a gorgeous appearance for modeling but this could have been better…

    There shouldn’t be any shame. Why should he not be able to make a living doing it, when that idiot daughter of American grifter Sarah Palin can get tons of money and national exposure shaking her titties on “Dancing With the Stars”?

    The song doesn’t really do it for me, but I wish him well.

    I don’t think people should be shamed by our community or any other for becoming a go-go dancer. But we should also be realistic about the fact that it is not the profession chosen by people who have lots of good career options before them.

    OH…..the poor thing… doesn’t have friends honest enough to tell him what a waste of time he’s been spending on pursuing a singing career. When ALL eyes are on the other guy in your “music” video you got to know it’s time to throw in the towel.

  6. says

    Well, it’s more honest and noble work than being a Republican shill 😀

    Good on him. I remember back in the 1990s seeing him singing hymns at that craay-cray “Crystal Tower of Evaneglical Somethingsomething” on TV – glad he got away from that bonkers nonsense.

    Enjoy it, Blake. Have fun, and ignore the haters. You’re out dancing and having fun, they’re at home not having fun and hating that you’re dancing. 😀

    It’s terrible. Super cringe-worthy. Reminds me of those friends we all have who think they are talented and no one actually tells them they suck. Just cringe.

    I never watched the show, so I have no idea who he is. His hair is a bit ‘hair club’ for men, don’t you think. He is not all that. Nothing special.
    But who is the hot guy, playing the boyfriend. If he needs a place to crash, my place is available.


    He is actually quite a decent singer…it’s just that his voice is not very pleasant sounding. Those are two separate issues.

    His voice sounds better on the ballad bits, but the “chorus” is just disjointed. He needs better writers/producers (or, you know, some).

    Does anyone honestly care that he’s a go-go dancer? If I was his age with his body I’d walk down the street in briefs and neon high-tops every day. Power to him!

    I read through all the hateful comments before I watched the video, and thought everyone was trolling, or jealous, or being bitchy queens.

    And then I watched the video, and…now I understand.

    Look, I don’t fault him for pursuing his interests. I don’t care that he’s a go-go dancer, or that he has a relatively high voice. I don’t care that he looks like your typical weho pretty boy.

    But that song…the lyrics, the arrangement, and the melody are just AWFUL. And he just doesn’t sing well. He sounds off-key, and his voice is weak.

    It takes guts to put yourself out there for everyone to judge. That said, I don’t think that this effort is going to get him very far.

    If you think I’m being unfair, let’s compare Mr. McIver to Jay Brannan. Jay has a relatively high, soft voice. He’s also openly gay, and not your typical “butch” guy. But Jay, in my opinion, is a much better singer. (He’s also a million times hotter but that’s personal preference.)

    The singing is good, and he looks great.

    But the mix is really, really bad. Why is his voice echoing? Why couldn’t they match the instruments so they show off his voice instead of competing with it? :(

    This story of a child actor becoming a Go-Go boy becoming a singer is like eating a cupcake from Crumbs. Looks pretty through the glass case but one bite and you realize it isn’t worth the calories.

  13. jamal49 says

    My but the jealous, do-nothing-with-their-lives, bitchy queens are out in force today. Hey, boys! The guy’s doing something with his life, unapologetically. Get over it.

    And, good for you, Blake. I hope you find your bliss.

    @Lars: some go-go dancers are students making some extra income. Think about it – you work hard all week studying and going to class, and you kind of need a few hours per week to unwind. So, you land a gig as a go-go boy for Saturday nights, spend the night out, and get paid for it.

    This guy claimed he used what he made to fund what he really wanted to do. I wouldn’t say someone doing that had few “career options” but rather that they were doing it to raise capital to start a career. If you think about it, this is as respectable as making sales pitches to vulture capitalists, I mean, venture capitalists.

  15. John says

    Yuck! I couldn’t do more than 30 seconds.
    Sorry dude, I don’t want to be a internet bully, but that was really…uh…not good.
    Also, I agree with the over-grooming comments. Who wants to date a Ken doll??
    I’m tired of all the over-grooming men seem to do anymore, gay or str8, men or women.
    I’m dumbfounded by the horrible, expressionless, and plastic way botox makes people look, and even worse is the “caricature of themselves” look that nearly all seem to have after plastic surgery. It really does not make them look better…just strange.

    I remember Blake from his role as Waldo from the Little Rascals movie. Glad to hear he is back in the spotlight, he’s incredibly sexy and can still sing in my opinion. Plus, I like the fact that his song was a nice 90’s style ballad, as opposed to a highly synthesized techno song which I’ve seen most out artists do, much power to him for following the Steve Grand and Eli Lieb path as opposed to the Chris Salvatore and Sean Ensign path.

  17. GE says

    Looks like too much time spent in the bathroom mirror, and maybe believing he could sing in the shower too. I was a go-go boy when everyone didn’t have a beard. And I was legend.
