Troye Sivan Blows Up Gay Twitter with Racy Kickoff to New Tour

Kilian Melloy READ TIME: 1 MIN.

Troye Sivan launched his "Something to Give Each Other" tour last night – and his X-rated hijinks with a backup dancer have gay Twitter in a tizzy.

"The Australian pop star intensely made out with one of his backup dancers while performing 'Rush,'" Uproxx detailed, illustrating the point with a fan-made video.

"Comments pour[ed] in with fans wishing it were them on stage with him," Pinkvilla noted of the post.

"Sivan also performed 'Supernatural,' the live debut of his and Ariana Grande's collaborative track from her 'Eternal Sunshine (Slightly Deluxe)' album," Uproxx relayed.

Then came the Australian pop star's live rendition of another of last summer's hits, "Got Me Started" in which Sivan's choreography mimicked fellatio with a strategically placed microphone held in position by a dancer.

"The racy moment divided social media users as they took to X - formerly known as Twitter - to comment on the cheeky dance routine," UK newspaper the Daily Mail reported.

The Australian Star Observer called the performance "controversial," but then noted, "The moment quickly went viral, amassing over 500,000 views on X (Twitter) and drawing a wide range of reactions from fans."

Indeed, for every negative take it seemed there was at least one positive reaction.

"If that weren't enough proof of Sivan's uninhibitedness, the Troye Sivan Updates X account relayed that Sivan made Troye Sivan branded condoms available for purchase on his official website," Uproxx noted.

The Mail noted that Sivan's tour is "set to visit cities including Paris, Stockholm, Warsaw, Berlin and Amsterdam over the coming weeks," after which he will tour the UK and the U.S.
