Tooji, born Touraj Keshtkar, recently came out to the world, but it wasn’t through a heartfelt YouTube video or love song. Instead, the Norwegian pop star who competed in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2012 released a video for his new single “The Father Project” in which the singer has steamy sex with a priest in front of the entire congregation.
The 26-year-old’s brand of “dramatic pop” sits perfectly along side the steamy song. The video not only features the pop star/model grinding on top of the priest, but also includes a terrific amount of nudity. He’s definitely a gay artist to watch in 2015. There’s no word on a release date for his new album, but in an interview with Norwegian radio station NRK, Tooji says his next single, “Cocktail,” deals with gender roles.
