Gay “rapper” and reality star Milan Christopher bares all physically and emotionally in NSFW Paper Magazine photo shoot, following the likes of Kim Kardashian West, Blac Chyna, and Amber Rose. All with the intentions of breaking the internet.
The first male centerfold was Burt Reynolds for Cosmopolitan magazine in 1972. It launched a national scandal that he reportedly now regrets at 80.
But Milan reinvented it by going full frontal. Milan says, “Well I just feel like in our culture it’s so taboo for a guy to show their bodies but it’s ok for a woman to do it.”
It’s true. It’s a sexist double-standard perpetuated by seemingly straight men who make it okay to objectify only women. I’m an equal opportunity objectifier.
Milan Christopher is known of his role on season two of reality show, Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood. It was the first time a gay guy was a main cast member. He dated then-boyfriend Miles Brock. I gagged when I saw them kiss on screen. We all did.
I gagged again when an alleged sex tape of him surfaced online. I wrote about it in, “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood’s Milan Christopher has a Sex Tape.” Here’s a preview: he likes it raw.
He also had some things to say regarding the constant homophobia in the hip hop community, saying that BET awards hasn’t even invited him:
“Oh yeah. Even with the producers and the directors and just everything. I mean, I was on Love and Hip Hop, I had my own Out in Hip Hop television show, I was on the cover of the New York Times, the cover of LA Times twice, on Wendy Williams, Ellen, you know, everywhere. And you know the Hip Hop Awards, the BET awards didn’t even invite me to do anything. It’s like, this is the first time this has ever happened in the history of hip hop music and you didn’t make a place for me because I’m gay? I felt very disrespected by that.”
Shame on you BET. Homophobia in hip hop is plaguing the industry like AIDS in Africa. It’s overt misogynistic messages and homophobic rhetoric is raising a generation of assholes.
You’ll see all of him here. It is very NSFW.
What do you guys think?
