“I guess, with this video, I’m decidedly resigned to my post as the resident “tits and ass” on WTBA. A lot of people make me out to be some cocky, show-off jerk…I’m not really like that at all, in fact, I can be rather shy. This sort of thing is very out of character for me. But that’s why its fun, to act, to play pretend, to be someone else for a little while…even if it just a different version of myself.” – Ian Parks

IAN PARKS NUDIES AFTER THE JUMP…
Igor Dewe is some magical hot being who when performing dresses like a fantastical club kid from the planet Naboo. Recently Dewe has been getting into music and the video for his new single “Sexual Obsession” is getting a lot of attention. Is it merely a brilliant pop song or a stand against Russia’s anti-gay propaganda law? Lets find out!
Sissydude: On your website igordewe.com you describe yourself as “A creature born out of pure frustration of too much hotness and beauty.” I can totally relate to that, but can you clarify?
Igor Dewe: Hahaha! Actually, it’s not me but my best friend Maja Bergström who wrote that. It’s too difficult to describe myself, and I don’t really feel pretty, but it’s true that I can feel very frustrated. I have to work and do things if I feel depression coming on.
You know I totally love your new song “Sexual Obsession.” It’s like all the best parts of early 80’s Madonna, Soft Cell and Jean Paul Gaultier rolled into one sweet and exciting love anthem.
Those are some of my favorites artists! I love ’80’s new wave. I’m also listening to The Human league, Divine, DAF and one of my biggest Idols is The Cicciolina! I love a lot of different music, I listen to reggae, ‘90s euro dance, and I’m gonna be working on doing different styles of music in the next month.
Is this your first song? What was the creative process in writing the song?
Yes, one night I was on a gay chat and one guy’s profile name was ‘Sexual Obsession.’ It made me want to do a song on my sexual obsessions, but I didn’t know anything about music, so I took some evening classes. Then I searched on the Internet and I found Gerald Kurdian, and asked him to work with me. It was not easy at the beginning. We tried different sounds. But one evening while we were supposed to work we kind of had a “physical crush.” The morning after, he was playing on his old synthesizer, and I said “that’s what I need!” He composed the music and I wrote the lyrics and melody. We made a demo, but the sound wasn’t great so I brought it to a studio.
I heard you got terrible sunburn shooting the video. Any other fun things happen? Were all of the sexy men in the video your friends?
Well, all was really nice and fun during the video, it was so cool! I want to do that everyday, but it’s hard to organize. The video is full of my best friends. One friend was missing but he’s kind of there too because when I recorded the song I imagined him in front of me. I was a bit in love of him. It’s my sexy family. They’re like my brothers but I have sex with most of them.
A few people have written that the song is your stand against Russia’s anti-gay propaganda law. I guess I was too entranced by your dancing oh-so-sexy-like in your crop top. And your ass! Wow!
I just want to do ‘love propaganda.’ The simple fact of doing something gay is “against this law.” I didn’t make the video specifically for this law, I just wanted to do something totally amusing and to show people how I’m free to act how I want. And I like that people talk behind by back saying that I’m a slut, because I totally am.
Can you tell me about your thoughts on what is happening in Russia? Do you think the boycotts are a good thing? What is it like for you to be a gay boy in Russia?
I didn’t know I was gay when I was there, but what is happening now is horrific. All the videos I see with gays and trans been beaten and tortured—how can humans act like that? I think that Russians are embittered and living in a dictatorship doesn’t help. I think boycotting Russian Vodka great.
