Todrick Hall is at it again! The “American Idol” season 9 finalist and YouTube sensation released his new Disney parody, CinderFella. His last viral video, Beauty and the Beat, now has over 4 million views — but this time around, it’s not all about the laughs.
The Cinderella-inspired video gives the fairy tale a fresh spin, and features a powerful message on equality and “legalizing love.” And can we talk about all the cameos from some of our faves?! Aubrey O’Day is seen dancing and singing her pretty face off, Janice Dickinson is the evil stepmother, Kimberly Cole is Jasmine, and Lance Bass plays CinderFella (Todrick)’s Prince Charming!
Such a unique way to portray the story and a fun way to shine a light on gender identity and sexuality. Todrick wrote on his YouTube page, “I wanted to tell this famous fairy tale in a new and innovative way, combining familiar top 40′s songs with classic Disney melodies. This story speaks volumes and I think that love is as classic as this fairy tale. It’s time for us to legalize love in all shapes and colors.”
I wonder what exciting video Todrick will work on next?
