Troye Sivan responds to body diversity criticism in ‘Rush’ video.

Troye Sivan has responded to backlash he received over the lack of body diversity in his recent music video for comeback single ‘Rush’.

Last week, the Australian pop star unveiled ‘Rush’ alongside the announcement of his first album in five years, ‘Something To Give Each Other’. The music video for the lead single was raunchy and sensual, but received criticism online over what many saw as a lack of body diversity – with the clip featuring skinny and mostly white men.

“I definitely hear the critique,” he told Billboard. “To be honest, it just wasn’t a thought we had — we obviously weren’t saying, ‘We want to have one specific type of person in the video.’ We just made the video, and there wasn’t a ton of thought put behind that.”
