Listen to Jonny Makeup's Ode to a Forbidden Love Affair With a Sailor

By Abby Schreiber
Check out a new track by Jonny Makeup, one-third of gay hip-hop trio VIP Party Boys, self-professed La-la-land "It Girl," and member of one of our favorite L.A. tribes -- the cuckoo collection of artists, designers and musicians that also include Peggy Noland and Hunx and his Punx. The single, a bubblegum doo wop ballad about forbidden love with a sailor boy is called, not surprisingly, "DADT" (as in "Don't Ask Don't Tell") and includes a mini spoken word monologue with lines like "I should've known that first night you tucked me into sleep / that you'd be off to sea before I felt your kiss on my cheek." Could Jonny Makeup be a gay, Internet-era Frankie Avalon in-the-making?

The track is available on vinyl HERE and will be released digitally on May 28. (We also hear there's a B-Side called "OMG" featuring back-up vocals by rapper Amanda Blank.) And, as the website says, there's only a limited amount of vinyls being released so "hurry up and get one before Lana Del Rey buys them all." Listen to "DADT" below.
