Jimmy Butler Goes Emo Again in Fall Out Boy's Music Video for 'So Much (for) Stardust'

The Miami Heat forward stars as an emo cowboy in the band's video for their 2023 album's title track

Call him "Heat Wentz" because Jimmy Butler's emo era is far from over.

The Miami Heat forward, 34, stars in Fall Out Boy's latest music video for "So Much (for) Stardust" —from the pop-punk band's eponymous album released last year — where he takes on the role of an emo cowboy.

In the visual, which features only Butler and Pete Wentz, the NBA star reclaims the straightened hairdo he sported on Miami Heat's 2023 press day — this time without the face piercings and black nail polish that inspired a flurry of memes and the nickname "Emo Jimmy," per GQ.

Both he and the Fall Out Boy bassist and lyricist, 44, can be seen wearing nudie suits in the music video, with Butler swinging his hips and playing an acoustic guitar in a matching purple look with gold sequins and fringe and Wentz clad in a cream getup with gold, silver and turquoise accents.

Butler's starring role in the band's new music video comes just a few months ahead of his interview in October with Rolling Stone, in which he revealed his plans to release his debut country album and spoke about about how he first connected with the genre.

The athlete told the publication he's been "in the lab writing and producing country music" but wants to keep his collaborators a "surprise," coyly noting there will be "some real artists and songwriters" featured.

Butler explained that he had crafted "around 45 tracks" and planned to create more. "Maybe a week before training camp I’ll get down and do some," he said at the time. "There’s definitely going to be an album. That’s the goal. I just don’t know when."

"The date I want to do it always gets pushed back because this other job that I have, playing basketball, kind of overshadows everything," he explained, while noting that "some of the songs" could end up on a future follow-up LP. "I can’t wait to get it to the people."

Butler said he initially "fell in love with country music in the fall of 2010" when his teammates at Marquette University wouldn't stop playing hip-hop tracks in the locker room. To retaliate, he began playing Tim McGraw's "Don't Take the Girl."

"I downloaded it, went back into the locker room, and started blaring that song over and over again — because it was the only country song that I had — and everyone was going, 'Turn that s--- down! Ain’t nobody want to hear that!'" he recalled.
