John Legend, Aloe Blacc, Luke James, Urban Mystic, Anthony Hamilton, Calvin Richardson, Tyrese Gibson, Mali Music, Anthony David are current rnb singers with deep voices. Unfortunately not many are really that main stream. This also speaks to the current state of mainstream rnb.
"The color black has become increasingly important to me. It hurts my heart to watch the television special 'Black in White America,' when the Black girl picked the white doll over the Black. That's why I decided the color scheme for Rhythm Nation - the costumes, the cover art, the overall feeling - would be positively, uncompromisingly Black." - Janet Jackson
- Thread: Jussie Smollett Covers ‘Out’
so this is what Smollett had to say
“I am a gay man with an extremely open heart,” he says, easy and assured until he’s asked to elaborate on what that means to him. “God, I’ve never had to talk about this, so I’m trying to find the words. If I had to label myself, I would label myself as a gay man.
With that said, I believe that love is the only thing that matters, and I would hope that anybody would leave themselves open — not to gender, but to love. I would hope that people would not close themselves off from what could be if, lo and behold, you meet somebody that just sweeps you off your feet, and you just can’t do anything about it.
If we truly believe that we are born this way, then why do we try to stifle the way we were born? If I fall in love down the road with a woman, I’m going to love that woman.”
“I’m sure that those words will be misconstrued,” he says, because if there’s one thing he’s learned this year, it’s how easily that can happen. “But this is a conversation that deserves to be had, because we don’t all understand each other. You’re not going to tell me that loving someone is wrong. That does not mean that heterosexuality is not very real. It does not mean that bisexuality is not very real. It does not mean that homosexuality is not very real. They are all very real. But what I’m saying is, I am a gay man. I am a gay man. I am a gay man. I don’t know how many times I have to say that.”
so what are your thoughts? i always like dudes attitude he comes off as a humble and cool person.
EXCLUSIVE: Jussie Smollett on How a Black Gay Man Can Save the WorldTags:
- Thread: Jussie Smollett Covers ‘Out’
As a gay man, I LOVE women, especially my mother, sisters, nieces, and especially the woman who will be the future mother of my child. And I will always LOVE women. I'm not sexually attracted to them, which makes me gay and cancels out bisexual. Even if I was to fuck a woman, I would still be gay. LOVE doesn't have to involve sex.
Gay people (not the bisexual men and women who identify as gay only because of the 60/40 rule: 60 pertaining to the same gender) should not be saying things like that , especially when people who are on the DL, in the closet, and are involved in sexual repairing methods and therapies are reading and listening. The whole "I'm gay, but...if...however" BS is destructive and doesn't help dissolve the heteronormative. As a gay or bisexual man, if you are out and vocal about sexuality, be blunt with no BS reservations and innuendos.
Sexuality isn't black and white. However, sexuality is what it is. Spaghetti isn't chicken, it's spaghetti.

I take it as he is open to love. That he has a clear identity but he isn't closed off to love coming from channels he wouldn't expect. As he said he's a very gay man but if he met a woman that he connected with in that way he would love that woman. People have to realize sexuality has never been and will never be black and white. Sure most of us go to our selected corners of identification but unless we have ran into every kind of man or woman there is is it really possible to say that we are unequivocally what we have self identified as? I don't think it's possible but I do understand the need for self identifiers.
I'm so tired of Vlad sitting idiots like him and Lord Jamar down to give their "expertise" on things....ughhhh YouTube keeps trying it. Nothing he said is a surprise. People like him truly want to say bullshit like this as if the founder/founders of Starbucks created this new Gay coffee or a new disease called Gay is going around. Absolute stupidity. But he probably had a threesome with two chicks after the interview tho...smh
VLADTV: "Boosie, do you have a career?"

“Can’t tell my family I’m bi/Can’t tell my mother I’m gay/The hardest part of my day/Is wishing I was fucking straight.”
You would think those lyrics would be from one of Frank Ocean’s two new albums. As transparent and revealing as FO is on Tumblr, you would think he would be just as revealing in his music. Not only are those lyrics not sung by our Black Gay Superhero, nothing as specific and direct about homosexuality as that appears on Blonde or Endless at all.
Those four lines of introspection are actually from “Papercut” featured on 20-year-old rapper Kevin Abstract’s sophomore album, “American Boyfriend.” An album full of welcomed abrasive transparency and emo realness for all LGBT boys and girls to identify with.
Admittedly, Abstract’s style of music will not be everyone’s cup of spilled tea (pun intended), but for me his transparency and frankness (pun intended again) on sexuality drew me in. If I had to be reductive and compare his music to others, I would say his sound is a gumbo pot of Childish Gambino, Kanye West, Frank Ocean and Odd Future.
And I’ll be
Right outside your front door on my 12 speed
I got your emotions tattooed on my sleeve
I think about you all the time
I’ve waited for you all my life
I need you right here by my side
He was everything I dreamed of
Used to ride around in his two seater
Being friends didn’t make it much easier,
Friday night lights stay away from the bleachers,
Showed me obscure bands he was into,
His mom in the dining room, we’re in his bedroom, his girl too,
Had to pretend like I didn’t mind that bitch
Just so I could see his face
My boyfriend saved me
My mother’s homophobic
I’m stuck in the closet
I just want help if
My best friend’s racist
My mother’s homophobic
I’m stuck in the closet
I just wanna know shit
Why we all love Young Thug?
Started smoking cigarettes
I even picked up pot again
Coke ain’t touch my nose yet
I’m afraid I’ll be just like my friend
I’m afraid I ain’t gon’ have no friends
Oh my god, when do my story end?
Tell me God, when do my story end?
I’m locked outside of the DeLorean
Very early this morning, Makonnen Sheran—better known as the rapper iLoveMakonnen—announced on Twitter that he is gay.
Makonnen refers to the revelation as “old news,” and indeed in a New York Times profile published in April 2015, Makonnen seemed to allude to that he was queer:
“The rap world thinks I’m gay,” he said. “A lot of people out there do. They think I’m a homosexual, which is not a problem. I don’t want to say I’m gay, I’m straight, I’m bisexual or any of that, because that’s just. …” he said, trailing off. “Who cares? All that’s doing is dividing us.”Well anyway, now we know. Makonnen’s most recent mixtape, a collaboration with the producer Danny Wolf titled Red Trap Dragon, was released last August.

- Thread: Sade Adu Appreciation Thread.
I have Always been a fan of Sade music, from listening to her play on the radio on Cool FM 96.9 'Midnight Grove' to seen her for the first time on 'Chanel O'( all Nigerian references). Her voice has, is and will forever be captivating. I always say her voice sounds like the hinges on the Gate of Heaven as they swing open. I remember when she released her last Album Solider of Love in 2010, it was Sold out like crazy, concerts and live shows tickets were gone before I could whisper The Sweetest Taboo...lol. Whenever I hit on a guy with some one liner or some cheesy line and they respond, I hear her voice in my head with the line ''No need to ask, he is a smooooth operator'' and I gives me a confidence boost lol. Here are some of my Favorites, feel free to share yours.

Side Note; She looks and gets more beautiful as she ages, like fine wine.
According to DJ Chuck Chillout‘s Twitter post, the legendary Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest has passed away at the young age of 45. Chuck Chillout posted the Tweet just after 1 a.m. EST Wednesday morning [March 23].
The Five-Foot Assassin has been battling his health for years, consistently fighting Type-I diabetes, which he developed in 1990.
The news of his death was also confirmed by Statik Selektah, and many veteran Hip Hop artists, including Aesop Rock, Chuck D and El-P, who have taken to social media to express their condolences, as well.
A Tribe Called Quest, of course, is Hip Hop royalty and greatly respected by countless fans around the
Writer and actress Issa Rae is producing Fruit, a ten episode audio drama about an anonymous professional football player with a hidden, unexplored (as of the first episode) same-sex attraction recounting a story that could affect his reputation. You can listen to the first episode below. For now, X (the player's alias) seems to be written as bisexual rather than gay or DL, stating, "I'm not ashamed. I'm not triflin'. I'm not trying to be deceptive." He mentions attractions to both men and women, though he's only been with women and previously rationalized his interest in men as something other than attraction. Who knows where it goes from here?
Future episodes will be released weekly on $4.99 subscription-based podcast service Howl. An article says that free month promo code FRUIT can be used during the signup process so, if that's still active 2.5 months from now, you may be able to hear the whole series for free.
