Can A Tune Come Out of The Same Mouth Brent Corrigan Uses to Deep Throat?

Looks like it’s time to add Brent Corrigan to our list of porn stars who use their mouths for things other than sex: The Judas Kiss actor (in a non porn role!) will also be on the soundtrack.

Testing out his vocal chops on YouTube, Corrigan, who went blonde for the film, does his best to carry a note. Which you can judge for yourself.

Director J.T. Tepnapa, says Corrigan, (possible NSFW) “has made a strict point of not sexualizing … me or exploiting my adult image in connection with this film. I appreciate that he wants to help me illustrate to the world that there is so much more to me and my talent than what has already been seen. Although, it has been nerve wracking. I’m in the best shape of my life and all I want to do is show it off in a way that as many people will get to see it as possible. All things considered, maybe it’s not merely the fans and viewers/ entertainment world that need a little perception adjustment, but myself as well.”

All this self-reflection among porn stars is giving me the heebie jeebies.

      Brent Corrigan is still on Top even when not making porn. The majority of us think you are amazing Brent and those who don’t, well let’s just say your dirty little comments will never over shadow the Beauty and talent of a strongly articulate person like Brent Corrigan. Props to you J.T Tepnapa for being a Director who knows his shit and forming an amazing cast. I know Brent Corrigan will do well, he ALWAYS does. I look forward to the Judas Kiss Movie even if there are no shots of Brent Corrigan’s flawless skin.

      Brent has always been hot, but he keeps getting hotter as he ages. He is quite easily the most talented and revered name currently in gay porn, and if he wants to branch out from that I wish him all the best.

      So what I don’t get is this. he says that he is happy that the director is not sexualizing him nor referencing his porn work. But then goes on to say that he is in the best shape of his life and wants to show it off to as many people as possible. Bit of a disconnect unless he means mentally.

      1) Your tone completely disassociates Brent from his original message when posting this video blog on his website.

      READERS WHO ARE CONFUSED WITH HOW BRENT IS QUOTED HERE MIGHT CONSIDER READING BRENT’S WHOLE BLOG ENTRY ON HIS WEBSITE. His entire point is that our society, particularly the gay community, has a nasty habit of not allowing figures to move beyond their original labels. He also adds that while he had hoped to show off his new physique, he is still working to recognize he can make an impact without taking his clothes off.

      2) Queerty, you again fail to do all of your research. Brent did not go blond for the film, he was blond in promotional pictures taken of him more than a year ago used by Judas Kiss Producers to help secure funding. He was the FIRST actor to be attached to this project. Brent has done a handful of video entries while on set with is natural hair color.

      3) Your headline for this article is demeaning and is obviously used in an effort to break down someone who has stood steadfast against such behavior. It’s no secret this practice of yours has alienated many readers. This person works twice as hard to push against perpetuating stereotypes thrust upon our community by those of us who refuse to recognize adult performers as well rounded people.

      I, for one, thought he sounded good. Singing takes practice, I don’t care who you are. So leave him alone, please.

      I am working PR for Judas Kiss as a volunteer because this is an indie film on a tight budget. The producers, Carlos Pedraza and J T Tepnapa have a vision for this movie, four years in the making and they are bringing it to life on location in Seattle. They are two of the most brilliant guys I have crossed paths with in my life. And that is saying a lot given that I spent my entire working career in advertising and marketing, nearly 40 years.

      I have watched Brent Corrigan’s growth as an individual for many years. He has an amazing depth of character that has blossomed into charisma. That is easily substantiated by the fact that he is the most followed porn star on Twitter. He has twice as many followers as the guy in the #2 spot. People are magnetically drawn to him.

      Just prior to the start of filming, I wrote the producers after watching some mainstream video of Brent. I was in awe of his performance. And if you watch Brent’s VLOGs on his blog, he makes the viewer feel totally connected and in touch with him personally. Brent has a natural talent that can’t be taught or learned, but he is not content to “wing it”. He is working hard to improve himself with the professional assistance of an acting coach. And he stays right on top of his physical appearance everyday.

      Anyone who moves out of their comfort zone is determined to grow and improve themselves. And with the commentary on this blog, Brent is learning that there are those who will do almost anything to bring you down.

      I am happy to come to Brent’s defense, even though I don’t know him personally. Brent wouldn’t know me if I was standing in front of him. What I do know is that Brent is a special young man who has the talent and drive to breakout into mainstream film. And as I told both the producers of Judas Kiss, there is no doubt in my mind that Brent is going to succeed beyond all of our wildest imaginations.

      @Lakas: I’m not sure if it’s green-eyed envy, jealousy, or a misguided belief that professional porn models equate to little more than prostitutes, but I heard similar words back in the vintage era of the 1960’s, when I was among the first nude model, artist’s models and porn film stars of the post “physique” style models of the 1940’s and 1950’s.

      Give these young performers credit if they perform successfully enough to be called a “pornstar”, and more if they can branch out to the more “legitimate” venues of the actor’s craft. To suggest they are good at “sucking cock”, or somehow undeserving of moving on and up is trite, outmoded, and unworthy of any offering among a gay or gay-friendly print media.

      Give the actors their due, they’re good enough to sell their craft to your sort, can you say the same of your home movies?

      I have never seen a Corrigan porn film (yes, I do live on another planet), and I’m only peripherally aware of some controversy surrounding him.

      Yet, watching this, I found him to be quite endearing and engaging. And reading the corresponding blog post I felt he had more in his head than many, including myself, would have given porn stars credit for. (And, at any rate, this was far more interesting than some Queerty regulars are.)

      I’m not sure his singing is that great, but it’s nothing that a little AutoTune can’t fix.

      Given how sad most pornstars’ lives end up being, I think it’s cool he tries other things, and wish him all the best in his new endeavors.

      Ok look, if a bunch of P.R. people and employees of the company making this film are going to come in here to attack anybody who says anything negative about Brent Corrigan, can I give you guys all a hint about how not to make it so obvious?

      1. Don’t all say the same thing i.e. “You should read his blog to get the whole story!” or “He is an amazing multi-talented etc…”

      2. Don’t all use the same word to describe how you think Queerty is treating him i.e. “Demeaning”

      3. When a bunch of female screenames come in and start defending a gay male porn star, it’s obvious that they are likely not aquainted with his porn work, therefore must be working with him now.

      4. Describing his new job the same way “Expanding, growing, trying new things”.

      Ok, so now when everybody from the film wants to come in here and defend Brent, you all have a short handy guide on how not to make it so obvious that you are all coming from the same place.

      Cheers!

I would really not hesitate to lay odds that most folks using their hands to type their comments here in Queertyland also used same hands to do some adjusting down there whilst watching a porn video. Why hate against anyone who needed the coin and gots naked in front of the camera. He name was associated with BB films yet he is now encouraging safe sex. There are a gazillion people out there who spend every waking hour attempting to make our lives miserable. He is one of us and is only trying to make a living and there really isn’t a need to toss hate on him………………….

      @PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS: Why hate on this guy?
      Ok, let´s see:
      1) he was an underage performer who lied about it and conned the industry
      2) has had no qualms about having sugar daddies bankroll his endeavors
      3) used to performa raw then changed when the head got too strong
      4) was involved with some very shady people in the business and even possibly an accomplice in a murder. He collaborated with the crime investigation so he got off the hook while his bud Harlow Cuadra ended up in jail
      5) he always has a sad story on the various websites he has had about how he has no money and so he conducts “benefits” to help with with his latest cause: legal expenses, a crappy indie movie, new underwear, whatever.
      Surely, if he was not a cute-looking twink, we would not be having this discussion. We would have crucified him by now. Sad how gay men can only look at the exterior to give a free pass to people that are really not worth any admiration. How about him going back to school, stop glamorizing porn (one of his pornmates incidentally killed himself, and God knows how many, like Mason Wyler, are HIV positive).
      So no, there is really nothing positive about this guy, unless capping his teeth, buffing up and playing on YouTube is your idea of success.

      I never really hated on the guy, I don’t like it when fans of somebody fake bomb the site with ridiculous posts. The posts that keep calling the guy some spectacular, amazing, outstanding talent etc… just get irritating. I’ve never seen any of his specific movies, but hey, the guy has done a bunch of gay bareback jerk off DVD’s, thats a pretty damn niche marcket, so when some female screename is coming on here talking about what an amazing performer he is, it’s obviously fake and that gets irritating.

      But on the flip side, to the people saying “Don’t hate on a porn performer you hypocrites.” Sure, ok, then if you are are going to ask people to do that, then you should also respond by not putting the guy on a pedastool for the same reason.

      @Tony Rivers, Plays Well With Others, et al., Kudos!
      @Make It Not Be True: Re: “Underage performer” and “conned the industry:” He was allegedly struggling to survive having left home as a gay teen, so BFD! It’s the industry’s responsibility to ascertain whether or not he’s legally of age. Since when is “conning” an abusive, corrupt, manipulative, degenerate, disgusting industry a crime?
      Re: “no qualms about” being “bankrolled:” How do we say Ken Mehlman? Most politicians? Trophy wives/girlfriends/boyfriends/partners and the numerous individuals who get married/partnered not because they are in love with othe other person and want to build a life together, but because it’s the easier path to follow? CEO’s who shaft American workers for a nice paycheck and financial security? Employees who put up with harassment, despicable work conditions, etc., to pay their bills? In a sense, doesn’t everyone prostitute themselves a bit under our Capitalist system? Or at least in life? Other than you, of course. At least this kid had the excuse of being young, on the streets and struggling to make his way in life.
      Re: “Used to perform raw:” Even the best intentioned souls make mistakes and I think that this young man’s background and age and background should be taken into account before one starts to judge him so severely. Unlike you, most people are not perfect. I’ll give you an example – the Mason Wyler of the Oscars who has recently vigorously defended Ken Mehlman while welcoming said Kapo into the lgbt fold. Unlike you, most individuals do make mistakes throughout their lives – the challenge is to learn from the same and move on.
      Re: “Shady Past:” One of the fundamental of our legal system is the tenet of being innocent until proven guilty. I don’t believe that he was convicted of any crime. Do you have knowledge proving your spurious, defamatory accusations? I don’t that he would have been let off Scott Free if he was, in fact, guilty of any criminal wrong doing. The accounts that I read about the criminal proceedings indicated that he was not guilty of anything. “Shady people?!?” Have you read about some of the people our various leaders have been involved with? I realize that you only associate with Saints but for most mortals it’s often difficult to avoid the sinners at times. I also think that the nature of the porn industry, his age, etc. need to be factored into the equation.
      Re: “Sad story,etc.” So what? Is it any worse than that twit Davey Wavey being featured on this site. The idiocy that passes for entertainment news in this country? The Kardashians, Paris Hilton, the crews of “The Jersey Shore” and “The Hills?” Jennifer Anniston and Lindsay Lohan? Corrupt politicians? Sarah Palin? McCain? Fox News? The kid is making his way in the world. He’s bound to make mistakes and missteps. Unfortunately, he’s not perfect like you. I admire his drive and ambition.
      Please note that I’ve never seen any of his adult films and I would not characterize myself as a fan. I have seen his work in “Another Gay Sequel; Gays Gone Wild” and “The Big Gay Musical” and I felt that he did not embarrass himself. Friends of mine who worked with him on both projects have told me that they found him to be very nice, bright, professional and determined to improve himself and move on from past mistakes. Matt Montgomery met him at the Cardiff, Wales Film Festival and found him to be “nice,” “intelligent,” “sweet” and “intent upon bettering himself.” Have you met Brent? If not, who are you to judge? A bit sanctimonious on your part, I fear.

      I would suggest that you save your ire for targets more worthy of the same. I would also suggest that you donate 20% of your annual income to lgbt youth charities/organizations/shelters to help prevent future Brent Corrigans so that you won’t have to write such sanctimoniuous letters in 5-10 years time.

      The funny thing about people claiming multiple female usernames present in this thread indicates that the landslide of love and support coming to Brent’s aid is fake is that Brent has always been known to have a very high amount of female fans. Whether or not they watch his adult films only they can know.

      If anything the female fans prove this one has crossover appeal.

      Yes. When public figures have stories written about them that are slanted or meant to be hurtful at times they politely ask that their loyal followers help balance out the negativity. It’s particularly necessary when misinformation and lies become consistently present as part of those threads. Like here, for one.

      If people at Queerty.com are going to shit on the mere notion that this kid has a talented bone in his body (beyond the one between his legs!) then it’s very clearly not a question of talent. It becomes an obvious attack used by bitter queens to, yet again, cut everyone else down to their pathetic level.

      One last point. When referencing Brent’s talent I mean possibly his work as a legit actor and not his singing. This kid will not be a professional singer of any magnitude. It looks like he knows that already.

If people were coming on here saying “I like him, I think he is getting a raw deal” etc.. then it would be believable, but the over praising here is showing that it’s either people working on his new movie or people that feel a personal connection to the guy.

      I am female, I am a fan and I am a fan because of his porn. I have seen everything he has ever done. I don;t care for or condone the under age/ bareback stuff but it happened. He regrets it. he has learned from it, plus it was over 5 years ago.

      He hasn;t done many mainstream movies, yet. So I cannot praise his talent or claim a lack thereof. But from what I can gather from his blogs, vlogs, and tweets he seems like a nice guy. So yeah, I think that this queerty “article” was rude and uncalled for.

      @Cam: I think that I’m normal, I’m definitely not weird (a bit eccentric perhaps)and I feel absolutely no personal connection to this kid whatsoever. His name came up in conversations with friends who have worked with him in gay indie films or have met him in social/professional settings. I trust their judgment. I also question how many of his detractors have either met this kid or know someone reputable who has any interaction with him. If his fans or co-workers come to his defense, good for them. The tone of this piece was snarky and mean spirited and not merited. Especially in light of the exposure that Queerty gives twits like Davey Wavey. I think that my comment was on point. It was a nasty, bitter and pointless article and many of the bitchy comments trashing this kid were ridiculously judgmental and sanctimonious. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. The fact that he works in porn and did bb scenes in the past is sad – hopefully he is HIV negative and has not been too emotionally scarred by said experience – but so is the fact that there is apparently a huge audience for the same. His critics should save their wrath for those who produce such shit and those who watch it. Many in our community have given the Mason Wyler of the Oscars a pass for his youthful indiscretions even though he’s defending and embracing Ken Mehlman so why pick on some kid who left home as a troubled teen and got involved in porn. BFD! I think that our time might be better spent attacking our enemies in the Republican party, our cowardly President who is allowing service men and women to be thrown out of the armed forces, the balless Democrats, media zealots who are creating a social environment that threatens our very existence, etc. At the end of the day, the fact that Brent Corrigan is a porn star and is attempting to branch out in life is not relevant and certainly doesn’t merit the hostility of the this piece and his detractors’ comments.

      Jeff R…..thanks for standing up to the negativity of the guys who wrote derogatory remarks about Brent, none of whom even know him nor have they seen his stellar performance in Judas Kiss. This slash and burn mentality that is running rampant in this country is exactly what is fracturing our very core and may very well bring us down. Far too many people are ready to throw rocks and spew vitriol on subjects they know little about. Headline readers I call them. They have neither the brains nor are they willing to invest the time to learn the facts about anything prior to flame throwing. Bloggers who do not present an accurate portrayal of the facts are helping fuel this liberal back-biting insanity. While the mainstream media is squarely to blame for not vetting the occupant of the Oval Office, left wing bloggers are spinning lies in a desperate attempt to hold onto the politicians who would expand entitlement programs that will bankrupt the states and complete the demise of the US Treasury. All of them are about to get a major wakeup call in November. I find many of the comments here idiotic rants of jealous queens, nothing more. I shall not return to this blog.

      @deeplove: In response to “Cam” message #35

      I am not a “PR” representative for Brent Corrigan, nor have I seen his porn movies, nor have I seen him in his non-porn role in “Judas Queen”. At my age, 65 years, I view porn for one reason alone, to get off, if at all possible. I learned of Brent by hitting “Like” on a window depicting him and found myself a fan. He’s attractive, but that is all I can say, because I know no more than that at this time.

      My comments on Comment ( #25 ) submitted as a reply to another message, fairly much express my views of any craftsperson, regarding the right to be judged on merit, and not on presumptive evidence, or prejudicial suppositions. Criticism of any art form must be free of personal prejudices to be effective criticism.

      On the other hand, it has been said that in the film genre, any sort of press is better than no press, and negative press is best of all. The worst one can say of an individual, the more the desire to know more about him. Perhaps Queerty, and its single-minded contributors with their disdainful remarks against Brent Corrigan may ensure he, and “Judas Queen” a lucrative success. If that’s the case, diss on you green-eyed detractors.

      As co-producer on JUDAS KISS, I have to thank Queerty for drawing attention to our little movie, though I wish they hadn’t done so with such condescension on Brent Corrigan and the risks he’s taken in acting (and singing) with regards to this film.

      But, then again, this is Queerty. Expecting more than cheap shots from this site is to invite a disappointment…

      Yawn…so once again, anybody with anything negative to say about anybody must be jealous. Then am I to assume that the people on these posts saying that we need to save our vitriole for the republicans must be jealous of them? Of course now. Saying somebody must be jealous because they dissagree or don’t like something or somebody is a way to try to discount their argument when you don’t have an actual response.

      Reread the post. The post is mostly a quote by this guy. Queerty put in one line at the bottom and yet people are coming on here freaking out saying the article was an attack, demeaning etc… you guys are acting like you are nuts. I really didn’t know much about this guy before, but I have to say, that his fans weird obsessive behavior have pretty much sold me on a negative view of him.

First, say that you’re an old man who doesn’t know the “kid” and who has never seen his porn. Right. Then bring in platitudes about making mistakes in life, sprinkle some comments of some other people on how good he is – Did you speak with Dustin Lance Bareback by any chance? – and voila, you have a wonderful concoction of holier than thou, forgive and forget, 1st amendment crap. And if you don’t think that “Another Gay Movie” he was in was an embarrassment to ALL gays, sir, then you need your head examined.

      @MakeItNotBeTrue: Thank You! Your posts proved my point more eloquently than I could ever could. I’m “an old man,” “blind,” “delusional,” stupid (I don’t know the definition of “sanctimonious?”) and I need my “head examined.” Tell Me, did the animals that raised you ever teach you the old refrain: “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me?” How pathetic!

      Is being blind a bad thing? Is Psychiatry a bad thing, too?

      I actually didn’t say that I was “an old man.” What would you define as old? Are you Ageist in addition to being sanctimonious? What is wrong with being “an old man?” Is it a bad thing?!? FYI, I’m in my Fifties. It’s something that most of us are going to eventually have to deal with.

      I am not a “fan” of Brent Corrigan and hence I am not putting the “fan” in fanatic. I just didn’t feel like letting your BS rantings go unchallenged.

      I am not a publicist. I’m an attorney.

      I actually haven’t seen any of Brent’s porn films, believe it or not. So you can take your “Right” comment and stuff it!

      I don’t recall ever mentioning the First Amendment but I support it.

      I never stated that my friends said Brent was “good” – better work on your reading skills and comprehension. They said that he was “nice,” “intelligent,” “sweet,” a “good guy” and very focused on improving himself.

      I loathed “Another Gay Sequel” – you got the title wrong,btw, ooops! I said that he didn’t embarrass himself in that piece of shit or “The Big Gay Musical.” Once you’ve improved your reading and comprehension skills, you should go back and re-read my comments. “Another Gay Sequel” was an embarrassment to the director, the writer and the producers, not the LGBT community, unless you’re going to assert that the overwhelming majority of films, television shows, etc., are an embarrassment to humanity in general. FYI, I actually told the director that I didn’t like his film after a Q&A and chided him for wasting the talents of a number of accomplished actors (not referring to Brent, btw.)

      I referenced Republicans, amongst others, to suggest that there are more important candidates worthy of your ire, nothing more.

      With regard to Justin Lance Black, I’m not a big fan of his and no, I’ve never met him. You obviously missed my attempted humorous reference to him in one of my posts. You should definitely work on those comprehension skills.

      Wow! This site is most disappointing thing I have come across in months. I have never before seen such concentrated, unreasonable bigotry and self-important, internalised homophobia on a website oriented towards gay people. At least it proves that gays are just like everyone else, no worse and certainly no better.

      I liked Brents porn work. I don’t like his acting or singing but why on earth tell him to just “keep sucking”? Is he not allowed to try? And what kind of cold hearted bitch/bastard accuses a 16 or 17 year old of conning the porn industry and condemns him for the rest of his life? – Awww. Poor wittle innocent porn industry. Were you tricked by the big bad legal minor?

      I, for one, am going to show support for the gay community by not wasting another second of my life on this site or its denizens. It has been an interesting three days but I won’t miss you. Feel free to send some abuse my way.

      Sorry, but telling people they have internalized homophobia because they are commenting on a person who is a porn performer and an escort is like telling women that they are anti-woman becauase they are making comments about hookers and strippers.

      @WalkerDC: Query: Is Brent Corrigan currently an escort or has he ever worked as an escort, and if so, can you document the same? If he has never escorted and/or there is no documented proof of him escorting, you are walking on very thin ice. Comparing strippers, regardless of their gender, with porn actors and escorts is quite a stretch and possibly defamatory and slanderous. It’s definitely insulting to them. Labelling all porn performers as escorts is falls within the same category. I would assume that some are and some aren’t.

      Labelling “Thank you and goodbye” as a client of Brent’s is also “pathetic,” and possibly defamatory and slanderous unless you can prove that he is in fact Brent’s client for escort services. If you cannot, you owe him an apology. FYI, I have no idea who “TYAG” is.

      I can understand why you might not approve of porn, stripping and escorting but to post such baseless accusations is wrong.

      @MuscleBoy: “Bickering” “Queens?!?” Your name says it all. Perhaps we just want to sink to your level of shallowness.

      Although I often make flirtacious joking remarks, I understand that he’s a guy with a brain and who isn’t just the pornstar we all know and love… that’s just one of his jobs, not his whole persona. People need to step away from that stuff and just take people for who they are, and not just judge them on one small aspect of their lives. Although having said that… it’s not that small, is it? **wink**

      I’ve been a professional actor for 20 years. It’s a tough business for anyone. Talent is a more important attribute in theatre than in film and television. Talent is great, but it alone won’t get you in the door in hollywood. It’s a good plan for him to start in indie films. I’ve never sucked cock or put out for a part, and I’d like to say that’s because of my scruples, but really, it’s because no one ever asked. You use whatever connections you have and whatever resource you have, including your looks.

      These days, there isn’t as much stigma attached to porn, because just about everyone has a sex tape somewhere. A good publicist can spin it in the right direction. The “gay” aspect is a bit more of a problem for male romantic leads, but that will be changing.

      He has a good look (that Zac Efron kind), and a nice persona. If he was smart, he would attach himself to a good gay director like Bryan Singer, who loves a pretty boy.

      Either way, I wish him luck.

      First off I think this article is a real cheap shot and extremely cynical

      Give the kid a break already!

      I admire anyone who has goals and works hard to achieve them, and he seems to be doing exactly that working hard to achieve his goals.

      Bottom line this is a kid (I use the term kid endearingly not condescendingly BTW – anyone young than me is a Kid LOL) who made some rather big mistakes when he was young.

      He admitted he made mistakes and has worked very hard to try and make up for them.

      Anyone seen all the safe sex PSAs he has done, or can even begin to count all the free meet & greats and fundraisers he does for various charities?

      I think we should as a community encourage people to set goals and work hard to achieve them not try and cut them down for their past.

      Wouldn’t it be a really fantastic for him to actually achieve his goals?

      So give the guy some kudos for the work is doing and the things he is achieving rather than focus on the cynical negativeness that is being thrown around.

      No offense Brent, but as an accomplished musician, I can officially say that you have little, to no, vocal talent. But it’s ok, because I still think you’re amazingly attractive and I would marry you, not just for your body, but also to give you vocal lessons. Until those lessons are complete, however, my piece will have to remain wedged in between your laryngeal flaps… which I’m sure both of us would enjoy multitudinously.
