Show Review

"You would never call me baby if you knew me truly". So begins' Perfume Genius' (real name Mike Hadreas) wong "Hood", from his soon to be released second album Put Yoru Back N 2 It. For the video, Hadreas enlisted gay porn star Arpad Miklos to co-star. He also told Pitchfork, "The song's about how if someone knew you 100%, they would go away... So, in the video, I didn't acknowledge [Miklos] 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." Directed by Winston H. Case.
