Two years ago, American Idol alum Todrick Hall made some viral YouTube magic with “Beauty & the Beat” a rewrite of “Belle (Little Town)” recast in South Central L.A. which was a follow-up to 2012’s CinderFella, another viral hit. Now he’s back, rewriting the song once again for West Hollywood and shooting a hilarious video with a bevy of way-gay-ness everywhere and a ton of cameos by semi-famous and famous gays.
Of course WeHo’s go-go boy elites Topher DiMaggio and Pablo Hernandez show up outside The Abbey, and then so does Rupaul!
The funniest queens are the “yaaaaassss” bitches in the underwear store (one of whom is Todrick), but you’ll also see bits with Frankie Grande, Jaden Dior Fierce, Laganja Estranja, Ross Matthews, and Lance Bass. And a whole lot of “Yasss, gawwd.”
It’s called “Beauty and the Beat Boots,” and as you’ll see, the same woman who screams from her car at the end of the earlier video returns to scream at Belle to get out of the street again. Belle is played this time by Colleen Ballinger.
For comparison, here’s 2013’s “Beauty and The Beat.”
