Bulgay-rian? Just hum along


AZIS -- the Bulgarian Romani chalga singer is delightfully gender-neutral (gender bothful?) -- and recently was voted the 21st most important Bulgarian in history. YES. He also ran for Bulgarian parliament, but didn't win enough votes to qualify for a seat. NO. Now, he's become a YouTube phenomenon, especially among young gay bears and their admirers -- or people who miss Marilyn Manson, worship Walter Mercado, are really into Turkish oil wrestling/ naked gymbunny construction workers, or just wish we had more awesome freaks in our US pop-culture roster. Where are our real freaks? Shaving your head? Please. Bulgaria's beating us, bitches!

Watch the above clip (of AZIS's mega-hit, No Kazvam ti stiga) ... and disbelieve!
