Alan Carr recreates Madonna’s coming out video and we’re obsessed
Chatty Man star and RuPual’s Drag Race UK judge Alan Carr has recreated Madonna’s viral coming out TikTok video, and we’ll never be the same.
The pop icon Madonna recently ‘came out’ as gay via the platform recently, in a video that was celebrated by some but criticised by others.
In the video, Madonna stands in front of a bin with a pair of neon pink pants in her hand. The caption reads: “If I miss, I’m Gay!” The superstar then – seemingly deliberately – misses the bin before throwing her hands up and walking away.
Alan Carr does exactly the same thing as Madonna in his video, complete with shaving cream over his eyebrows to mimic the singer’s bleached ones.
He has also seemingly stuffed something down his jumper to resemble Madonna’s breasts.
Instead of pink pants, Carr throws red boxers – which also miss the target.
The only difference – and we mean the only difference – is that Carr’s caption reads: “If I miss, I’m Straight!”
What’s the opposite of coming out? Going in? Either way, please tell us you’re joking, Alan.
Madonna has not confirmed whether she was being genuine in her initial video, though previous interviews with the singer suggest she is definitely sexually fluid.
During a 1991 interview with Advocate, she said: “I think everybody has a bisexual nature. That’s my theory. I could be wrong.”
She was an advocate for the LGBTQ+ community during the AIDS crisis, when queer people were suffering human rights abuses globally, for gay marriage and has always given her support to LGBTQ+ youth.
In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres in 2010 she even stated: “I wouldn’t have a career if it weren’t for the gay community.”
And who could forget her onstage smooch with both Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera at the 2003 MTV VMAs.
Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and lesbian icon, has said she was unsurprised by the video, revealing that Madonna had previously “hit on [her] girlfriend!”
