BEST NEW TRACKS: KING PRINCESS - PUSSY IS GOD

11/5/18
King Princess - Pussy Is God

Finally the lesbian anthem to munching box you never knew you always wanted has arrived. King Princess’ latest single "Pussy Is God" is anything but subtle, including how fantastic it is. Full of bombast and bravado, this song is so catchy it’s likely to win over even those folks the title seems intended to offend.

We already told you all about Mikaela Strauss in our 11 Up and Coming Queer Artists piece this summer, so today we’re focusing on the message and the music of "Pussy Is God." Today we focus on the pussy.

The 19 year old Brooklyn pop star co-wrote this bop with her partner Amandla Stenberg, who it appears is none to shy about her, um, abilities. The type of sexual veracity on display here is straight out of the rock and roll playbook and rarely allowed of non-male artists. (King Princess identifies as gay and genderqueer.) Once the initial shock and thrill wears off what’s left is a towering pop gem that more than stands up on its own merits.

As if this wonderous song wasn’t enough, King Princess has also graced us with an uproariously cheesy green screen video to accompany “Pussy Is God”. Check it out below:

 

KING PRINCESS - PUSSY IS GOD

“Only God can judge me” is a great flex because it acknowledges a higher power while positioning it as the only other being in existence on your level. On “Pussy Is God” King Princess has announced to the world that the only thing on earth that can judge her is, well, ya know.
