Wow. Straight Enrique sings “Hero” to a thrilled gay fan.
As popnography puts it:
(It) makes me feel like I hit my head and ended up in GayLand. And not — seriously — because I in any way think Enrique is secretly gay. It’s just the idea of a world in which male singers apparently don’t think twice before serenading fanboys — and by serenade I mean not just singing sappy love songs but reaching out to touch their hands (!), and their chest (!!) and then wrapping themselves around the boy from behind and singing and swaying together (!!!) — without feeling the need to defensively make it a big joke is so surreal that I’m almost not sure I believe it really happened. But it did!
As my partner, Shane, puts it:
I would pass the f*** out!
