MTV Europe Music Award-winner, Yungblud revealed the truth regarding the controversial music video for ‘Parents,’ after two years.
On May 24, the singer, fired up his social media accounts in order to mark the second release anniversary of his song ‘Parents.’ To celebrate the day, the 23-year-old uploaded a short video from the official music video; alongside the video which was met with mixed reviews due to its “offensive” nature, the singer revealed that his record label did not support him at all.
“Happy to years Parents! Everyone said the lyrics of this song were “too graphic” and the video was “too offensive” they told me it would be a mistake to release as it would probably offend too many people. We didn’t listen and we did it anyway.”
Yungblud, born Dominic Richard Harrison, continued his statement by thanking his fans and followers for accepting and loving him the way he is. Regarding the song, which made a great number of people think that the singer had a bad childhood, the singer continued:
“It’s so crazy to me how it brought so many of us together. Thank you for everything. Be individual be fu*king proud of it. Don’t let anybody shame you or tell you it’s not ok to be who you are!”
Then the young singer added the link containing the “more proper” version of the music video that the label wanted him to release.
As known the song, which has been originally titled ‘Parents Ain’t Always Right,’ was dropped back on May 24, 2019, through Interscope Records, Geffen Records, and Locomotion Recordings. We still do not know not which label forced him; it will remain a secret.
Here is the “less offensive” version.
