Perfume Genius: "I Think All Gay Men Are Used To People Saying No To Them, To People Not Giving Them Choices."

2010_perfumegenius_bruised02.jpg​Mike Hadreas, aka Perfume Genius, is a talented, young singer-songwriter who has made quite a mark with his sophomore effort, Put Your Back N 2 It. However, the release was not without controversy.

Perfume Genius’ 16-second ad for the new album was deemed inappropriate by YouTube because it featured the singer being held by a gay porn star. The ensuing hullabaloo confused Hadreas as much as anyone, since he comes across as rather shy and introverted and is just happy anyone likes his music. He spoke with us about that and more in preview of tonight’s show at Dan’s Silverleaf.
