About Perfume Genius
About Perfume Genius
YouTube used to be the open door that would transform a little known artist into an overnight sensation. But one performer, who goes by the name Perfume Genius, had a promotional video banned by the site in order to earn himself the label "rising star."
Mike Hadreas may never be OK with YouTube distancing itself from the video, which featured the artist in an intimate dance with a gay porn star, Arpad Miklos. Hadreas is at one point donning a wig and a gown in the video when Arpad marks him with lipstick and mascara while they are both bare-chested. But compared to other things found on the video sharing site (and compared to things other performers have pulled off a live awards shows), this was rather tame. And so the furor erupted that has everyone now talking about Perfume Genius.
The stage name came after Hadreas took a friend to see the film "Perfume." She hadn't liked it, and began blurting out "perfume genius" during the screening. And for Hadreas, it stuck. Since that time, he's battled through old demons to find his self confidence, has befriended the likes of Michael Stripe from REM, and originally found an audience via his MySpace page that has grown to a global fanbase.
Some career milestones to note: His first album came out in 2010. Next, in 2011, he supported Beirut on their North American tour, played the inaugural Black Rabbit festival in China, and set to work on his second album. It bowed on February 20, 2012. He was also one of several Seattle-area artists and musicians to be featured in the exhibit "Moment Magnitude" at the Frye Art Museum.
