Super producer, rapper and fashionista Kanye West continues to publicly explore his sexuality .. whatever it may be. Kanye blasts gossips who speculate about his sexuality—you know what they have said—and insists his "manhood" should "never" be questioned.
The Stronger hitmaker, whose engagement to fashion designer Alexis Phifer ended in 2008, has long been dogged by rumors he is secretly gay. Having previously slammed the "disrespectful" claims, West is furious about new rumors his relationship with model Amber Rose is just for show.
In a rant on his online blog, he writes, "I know my life is the Truman Show for everyone to judge and comment on but I'm not doing a reality show. I'm not doing anything 'for the camera'!"
"I have some ego problems, b**ched out at award shows, have control issues and make some questionable fashion choices but never question MY manhood. This is a message to everybody out there!"
The stylish producer-rapper has criticized hip-hop for being obsessed with gays and gay-baiting, calling attention to rampant homophobia in rap, hip hop and the 'hood. West has admitted to having "feminine ways", "an issue with masculinity" and projecting his own insecurities, creating discussion around homophobia and hip-hop.
The only problem here is his word usage, i.e. "manhood." Last month Kanye West dismissed gay-baiting and told MTV he is "secure in his manhood." Now he says "never" question it. We're all men, straight or gay, but unfortunately in the 'hood "manhood" is supposed to mean masculinity and/or heterosexuality. "Questioning" someone's "manhood" implies they are gay and that is a huge dis.
