Lil Nas X’s J Christ, an allegedly blasphemous hymn dripping with camp deliciousness, is reminiscent of Army of Lovers’ 1991 hit Crucified.
Critics praised the song for its gospel song-like catchiness, great harmonies and contagious phrasing. Lots of Abba comparisons.
Before the Murdochracy began mining culture wars for profit
But there’s a huge major difference between the reception for Crucified in 1991 and J Christ today.
A few reviews of the song describe it as ‘provocative.’ But that’s it! No rants about the end of civilisation as we know it, Lil Nas X being the Antichrist or banning the mention of LGBT in public places.
How times have changed – and how much the Murdochracy has been responsible.
Something to ponder on.

Army of Lovers released the new album Sexodus in late 2023.
The album features Love is blue, a gay anthem co-created with Ukraine’s top star, Olga Poljakova.
Alexander Bard from Army of Lovers co-wrote Love is blue with Poljakova. Blue symbolizes gay love in Ukrainian and Russian culture and the collaborators intend the song as a statement against Putin’s bigoted policies.
