Kim Petras‘ just dropped her latest single “Throat Goat” from her new EP Slut Pop and, naturally, everyone’s talking about Nancy Reagan.

The trans techno-pop diva, whose song “Coconuts” is currently nominated for best Queer Anthem in the 2022 Queerties, posted the official music video to her new single on YouTube yesterday.

Now, you might be wondering how Mrs. Reagan fits into all this. Let us explain…

Last December, a rumor about how the former FLOTUS, who died in 2016, was known for giving the best blowjob on the MGM lot during her acting days resurfaced on Twitter.

(For the record: There’s nothing wrong with giving lots and lots of blowjobs. If that’s your thing, we say go for it!)

It all started when Abigail Shapiro, the sister of antigay podcaster Ben Shapiro, tweeted a “trashy” photo of singer and HIV/AIDS activist Madonna next to a “classy” photo of Reagan, who famously turned a blind eye to the AIDS crisis in the 1980s, along with the caption, “This is Madonna at 63. This is Nancy Reagan at 64. Trashy living vs. Classic living. Which version of yourself do you want to be?”

This prompted people to go digging into Nancy’s past, where it didn’t take long for them to uncover the BJ stuff.

Vice reported at the time:

As spotted in June by the Washington Babylon, an unauthorized biography of Nancy published in 1992 noted that Nancy “was renowned in Hollywood for performing oral sex…not only in the evening but in offices. That was one of the reasons that she was very popular on the MGM lot.” Another source is quoted in that book as saying Nancy tagged along with friends on trips to Arizona; her guy friends would pick up girls at Arizona State University, and Nancy “entertained them orally” on those road trips. A Village Voice article from 1998 also referenced the biography, and noted that Nancy “was known to give the best blowjob in town.”

While Petras’ song makes no mention of Reagan (it does, however, give a shout out to Lady Gaga), many on Twitter have already declared it a sentimental ode to the former first lady.

Here’s what they’re saying…

The Reagan Foundation has not issued any comment on Petras’ new single.
