In a perfect ‘know your audience’ marketing scheme, Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears has apparently popped up on Rentboy.com wearing nothing but a strategically placed towel in order to promote two things: 1) his body and 2) his band’s new album. Absolutely brilliant. Be forewarned that the website is NSFW or AWTGF (A Way To Get Fired).
According to his profile, Jake says, “I am down to earth, have TONS of energy and will make you sweat all night long.” His talents include go-go dancing and stripping is available for the low rate of $11.99 per hour. Save your pennies, boys.
I’ve had a chance to hear Night Work and it’s a gritty, sexy, Rentboy.com type of album. Shears went to Berlin’s seedy underbelly to live a debaucherous life and so the influences are sex parties, drugs, clubbing, poppers and more sex. Kind of makes Miley’s “Can’t Be Tamed” sound like a VBS song.
Watch the Scissor Sisters video for “Fire with Fire,” the first single from the album due June 28, after the jump.
