Now don’t get us wrong. We love a big gay Puerto Rican who feasts on men who are tops, but this is the point where we put our business bonnets on and discuss – no holds barred – Ricky Martin’s new video for his new song, ‘The Best Thing About Me Is You (We’ll Be The Judge Of That)’. It’s new.
The song itself is pretty and much like those crisps that come in a tube, one hit and you can’t stop humming. The video is all about equality which naturally makes us do this *drops trou’, takes a bow* but then, of course it was going to be about equality. There are gays and lez-ees and people with black lipstick and everything in there. And there are lots of pretty faces against a backdrop, which is all very the end bit of Michael Jackon’s ‘Black or White’ video. (It’s black, isn’t it? No, white. No black! White?)
And on the last count, we found six people in this video we’d like to bum. That’s a record. We haven’t been this excited since records began.
And it won’t sell. The kids haven’t been buying this sort of palaver since 1993.
Oh, and the bastards won’t let us play it. You’ve got to go to YouTube. How greedy are they?
