Village People Frontman: YMCA Is Not About Illicit Gay Sex & I’ll Sue

Village People frontman Victor Willis has spoken out about the group’s iconic song YMCA to insist it’s not about “illicit gay sex”.

The 1978 song featured on the band’s album Cruisin’ and was a chart-topper around the world.Advertisements

But in a fiery Facebook post this week, Victor threatened legal action over “false accusations” about the song.

“As I’ve said numerous times before (and this was proven in federal court), I wrote 100% of the lyrics to Y.M.C.A., so I ought to know what my song is about,” he wrote.

“Y.M.C.A. is one of the most iconic songs in the world. I will not stand idle and allow it to be defamed.

“Therefore, I will sue the next media organization, or anyone else, that falsely suggests Y.M.C.A. is somehow about illicit gay sex.

“Get your minds out of the gutter please! It is not about that!”
