Solomon

Gay singer-songwriter Solomon, who we've featured on the site previously, has released a new music video for his single "Crash Into You" and announced that it will be his last one before retiring from music. 

This video for the final single from his EP Le Garçon has the artist reflecting about an old flame in a 1960's styled hotel and features fellow out musician Baron.

Back in July, Solomon wrote about his plans to leave the industry:

“After five months of debating this, against everyone’s advice... I’ve decided to go a different route with my creativity. Making music was fun, and was so fulfilling. I don’t want to continue if the possibility of those beautiful moments would be tarnished.”

Perfume Genius Faces His Demons In ‘Grid’: VIDEO

PERFUME

Mike Hadreas, a.k.a. Perfume Genius, has released a music video for his forthcoming single, “Grid.” The video for the song takes the dramatic and irreverent spirit of his previous music video for “Queen” even further, leaving Hadreas “literally surrounded by his (hentai-clad) demons before confronting them head on and being devoured by them.”

PERFUME3“Grid”, along with Hadreas’ previous single “Queen”, is featured on his third album—Too Bright—due out September 21, that represents a dark departure from Hadreas’ sophomore album Put Your Back N 2 It. Said Hadreas of his new album:

"A lot of these songs are me trying to claim some power in situations that would typically depress or alienate or victimize me.  Also, no matter how good I feel there is a darkness hanging, which I don't agree with - giving it a voice is an attempt at freeing it so it can potentially dissipate".

Hadreas also recently spoke with Stereogum about the “weird politics of being a gay artist”:

I’ll go into a venue and they won’t take me seriously, or think I don’t know what I want because I’m sort of impish or tiny or feminine. And that’s frustrating. And that’s almost what that song is too. I’m just as badass as anyone; my clothes are just more silken. But then I’ll meet a dudey-dude band, like the Men, and they were super nice and really fun and easy to get along with. And even going to the South, I was terrified, but it was really friendly. It’s just surprising. Then there’s some asshole in some liberal area. That’s just how it goes. I did a lot of interviews where I’d get these crazy introductions. In France I was being translated live for the radio show. It was like, “He is Perfume Genius: He is gay, he is sad, he is addicted to porn.” And I had to stand up like, “Excuse me?” The first two, yeah OK, but I’m not addicted to porn! I like that that’s their lead-in, like nothing about the music, just that I like to fuck dudes, basically.

Speaking of his style that often times includes wearing lipstick and heels, Hadreas says,

I’m just doing what I want. I’m not thinking, like, “Today I’m going to dress like a woman.” I’m not even thinking about that. I’m just thinking, I want to wear this today, I want to be this today. It’s not like an either-or thing sometimes. I know when I see pictures of some of these NYC queens it’s inspiring because there’s something sort of mystical about it still.

Russia Cancels Anti-Gay Eurovision Alternative - VIDEO

Conchita wurst

Russia has canceled plans to hold it’s own drag queen-free Eurovision alternative, reports Attitude.  

The “Voice of Eurasia” - which originally ran in the Soviet era between 1977 and 1980 - would have consisted mostly of countries from the former Soviet Union.

Following this year’s Eurovision, Communist Party deputy Valery Rashkin said that the “madness” of Conchita Wurst’s win had exhausted Russia’s patience.

In a statement at the time, the country’s Slavic Committee said:

“Conchita Wurst's Eurovision victory symbolises the complete collapse of the European Union's moral values. We do not need Europe!”

However, although the show’s producers will not hold the event next month due to the current “political situation” in Russia, they are still planning to host the contest in 2015.
