‘Johnny, Are You Queer’ Singer Does Love Song To Mothra

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – When your best known song asks the musical question, “Johnny, Are You Queer?” what do you do for an encore?

How about sing a love song to Mothra?

That’s exactly what Josie Cotton decided to do for her upcoming CD, Invasion Of The B-Girls.

Back in 1982, Cotton recorded “Johnny, Are You Queer?” a controversial novelty song that was decried by both gay activists and the religious right.

The song has found a new audience since Johnny Knoxville put it on the soundtrack to Jackass 2.

As a result, Cotton says she constantly meets people who tell her the song convinced them to come out of the closet.

Cotton doesn’t know if she’ll get the same reaction to her new single, “Prayer Of The Fairies,” which originally appeared in the Japanese monster movie, Mothra Vs. Godzilla.

The song is about two twin fairies who ask Mothra to kill Godzilla and Cotton admits, “I like things that are beautiful and absurd.”
