Maynard James Keenan Resembles Lil Nas X’s Controversial Acts To KISS’ Early Days


Puscifer frontman Maynard James Keenan revealed his opinions about rapper Lil Nas X‘s controversial music video for ‘MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)’ during a recent interview with Louder Sound, and apparently, it reminded him of the time when KISS members mixing their blood into the ink of their comic book.

As many of you recall, rapper Lil Nas X recently released his queer-themed song ‘MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)’ on March 26, 2021, from his upcoming album ‘Montero.’ While the track received a huge interest by his fans already when it first released, it also gained extreme negative attention quite rapidly conservative people as well.

The moment when the music video that includes various characters in biblical and mythology-inspired scenes for the track is uploaded on Lil Nas X’s official YouTube channel, it blew the internet especially with its final scenes in which the famous rapper gives Satan a lap dance after landing in hell through the longest dancing pole.

The music video already found itself in a high place among the iconic LGBTQ+ music videos and almost everybody appreciated the theme of ‘MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name),’ however, due to its prior concept and the bold scenes, it’s also highly criticized by conservative people who wanted Lil Nas X’s to go to hell, ironically.

During a recent interview, Maynard James Keenan was asked about the music video of Lil Nas X and Maynard stated that he’s not aware of the highly popular music video. When the interviewer summed up the idea of the video, Puscifer frontman stated that it reminded him of the time when KISS members used their blood into the ink that was supposed to be used for their comic book.

Here is what the interviewer said:

“He’s a rapper, and he’s released trainers that have blood in them, and he’s gay, so he’s done a music video where he’s having sex with the Devil, so the conservative people are really kicking off with him.”

Here is what Keenan said:

“I remember the photos of Kiss putting out their comic book and dumping a vial of blood into the ink; same shit.”
