THAT WAS TERRELL ON THE BOOK COVERS!!!

So why did he deny?

This queen wasn't outed. It seems like everyone knew he was gay execpt his church audiences.

Thanks a lot Terrell!

Malik

Oh please. This is too much to tell God. That black church audience wants to hear him say he loves Jesus, people won't put him down and he can walk back inside his glass closet.What gossip can you address? Those are pictures, unless he is going to claim they are fake.

Typical black church queen punk behavior. smh

Anderson

this is it? this is all he has to say after denying he was gay for years and we all knew he was?

i will give terrell the benefit of the doubt that he could not address the "gay" issue in a black church play. but that is the problem! but he he has to address this soon ... unless he is going to pretend he is NOT gay or say he is SAVED now.

and yes, thank you for pointing out this man's talent! he could have a powerful platform if he wanted to. i pray he does the right thing!

The Truth

He shouldnt have said anything...just leave it alone, rather than call it gossip. But, I guess straight men sleep in the same bed as other men and don't mind taking pictures of him and another man kissing. Right? Hmm...

Cosign @ The Truth

I'd rather Terrel not say anything than that lame azz "response" ... because this is NOT gossip. This is true. Now is he gonna deny it? That really would be be fail.

D.

GOSSIP??????

What were those photos s'pose to be Photoshop? That is what they are saying on YouTube? lol

Grambling State

How much do you want to bet this was Tyler Perry's advice?

i for one am not suprized at all. he's career is way too important. shame... 'cinnamon ring is sweet as honey as long as i don't get caught with my fingers, tongue, or **** in the jar!' - that's what he thought, ya right!

good luck tryin to convince the wold you're a changed man.

Rod...I'm not sure if you are helping or hurting the man. One thing is for sure he is extremely talented and maybe his talent will see him through this. No matter what, no of you would want to be outed in this way. He is right it is gossip... He did not say it was untrue just that people are gossiping about him.... Let the man be. He has been through enough.

Don't blame Terrell Carter's BS on me. This was a public performance. Terrell Carter sang this in front of thousands of people. It was uploaded to YouTube by the show producers, not by me. Terrell Carter was blasted by his ex-BF, not by me. Terrell Carter also has previously denied being gay although we all knew the truth, and I never outed him. This has NOTHING to do with me.

It's not "gossip." It's true. Just like we saw Terrell Carter on the cover of those B-Boy Blues novels all those years, and he claimed it was not him. What are supposed to believe, our lying eyes or him? Grow up. -RM

Never quite understood why African-American celebs adopt a double-standard for themselves when it comes to homosexuality and coming out.

Were it applied in any other facet of life we'd all be yelling DISCRIMINATION. But in this one, one rule is quite fine for white celebs when they are finally outed (they generally admit it and move on) and another is the norm for people of color (they deny it at the top of their screaming Mimi lungs).

chris-leo

here we have it - the epic battle of good vs evil. terrell carter has two potential support systems in his future.

GAY OR CHURCH? TRUTH OR FICTION? DEAL OR NO DEAL??

he will choose to either throw one support group under a bus and that group will hate him for it.

which will he choose - the evil gays or the good church? the good gays or the evil church?

...each one claiming to be the truth and only one of those truths supported by photographic evidence.

Gurlene

Nice follow up though I see more of a story as to why James Hardys B-Boys Blues has not made it to the big screen after 16 years (or almost) since I first read it.

seahawk

The black church often seems to exist in an alternate universe.

No attention to truth, no sense of perspective, a wealth of self-delusion.

Hisprosody

Boy, BOO. I couldn't even watch the whole video because my stomach started to turn. (And I really dislike that song)

Up there singing like somebody made the ish up. Boo, this ain't Cinderella, we ALL saw the pics, including the folk on stage with you giving you the severe side eye!

Gone & saddown somewhere. Hmph.

bostonblk:

Oh, boo-woo!

Hampton06

i understand everyone's struggle is personal, but this sort of passive behavior on Terrell's part feeds the hate.

So, now it becomes "gossip"...that some evil demon cooked up. More fuel to the anti-gay fire.

Kick rocks.

Rusty

Damn, that JEH name-drop brought back memories of my closeted little self reading his books secretly in the stack of the library.

Carter's response is funny but expected. There's no way he could come out and still be a big ab-showing star of the black gospel world, and I guess that's all he wants to be right now

TheRevKev

WOW.

Jesus as a covering, I get! Jesus as a scapegoat?! Really Terrell!

Rod and I were discussing this and I was so praying and I really still am that he is BOLD ENOUGH to stand up and say: I LOVE THE LORD AND THE LORD LOVES ME! TALK ABOUT ME AS MUCH AS YOU PLEASE...GOD LOVES ME!

Even Kirk Franklin has a song that says I LIKE ME, GOD LIKES ME, SO YOU DON'T LIKE ME, GOD LIKES ME! I mean say THE ONE AMONG YOU WITHOUT SIN CAST STONES or DON'T JUDGE ME, but to become a punk and not address it is setting himself up for more drama and more "truth" to show up to "prove" what is already known. He's gay and he knows that there's no denying that. So we are either going to see a man strong enough, grown enough to stand up for himself OR we are going to see a man reduce himself and his power to please some people he can NEVER please.

In Matthew 23, Jesus says in 7 WOES OF JESUS, Jesus says (I'm paraphrasing here)..."WOE TO YOU, YOU HYPOCRITES, YOU TRAVEL AROUND THE WORLD FOR ONE CONVERT AND THEN PUT HIM IN TWICE THE HELL AS YOU!"
Terrell needs to realize that he will NEVER be able to please these hypocritical church folks who want to control his life, his faith and his career and either they want a lie (DONT BEAR FALSE WITNESS) or they want him out. It will never be good enough to a bunch of people who are lying to themselves too, so TRUST GOD, MAN AND MAN UP!!!

BE A MAN OF GOD, not a little boy in God!

alicia banks

how pathetically cowardly and typically hypochristian/phony!

he just lost all his cool pts with me

(Can someone delete my first comment here)

bostonblk:

Cry me a river. I have no sympathy for this prick. It's very funny how so many people are willing to defend this nobody, yet seldom say anything about the recent murder of August Provost, a soldier possibly killed cuz he was GAY (and perhaps Black). He deserves more reginition due to being a SOLDIER and somebody whose has the courage to serve for a country that continue to treats people of his color and sexuality like sh*t! Y'all so outraged by some church queen being outed but nothing, not even actual discussion, was said about August Provost.

You'll always hear Black folk and other POC complaining HOW nobody gives a sh*t about them, the community or individual being treated badly or victims of violence but they turn a blind eye to issues like August Provost case because they only care about a select group of people in the "community". These hypocrites are the same ones that defend Carter because is shatters their delusional ideal strong, heterosexual, God-fearing Black man. It's almost as if you don't match a certain criteria that Black/POC masses want, you're considered less than worthy, not important, including your lives, to the "community".

It sickens me to no end and shows the Black/Other POC have a LONG, LONG, LONG, LONG, LONG way to go. Great to see people who don't rarely comment here pop out of no where.

Truth IS

Talk about playing both sides of the fence! One day, he is on Zane's sex chronicles, then he is kissing his boyfriend, then he is singing about gossip and saying he is leaning on Jesus! GTFOH! If you are gay, then be proud of it! Make a decision and stop playing both sides of the fence. GOD doesnt respect it and we dont either!

Kevjack

I always wait for Rev Kev to speak first on this, and he is on point. The video was sickening, and it only fuels the hateful fires. As I said a long time ago, people need to move out of these hateful spiritual places. It disturbs me that people use the wonderful power of the Lord to bind people to lies, self-hate, and fear. That is exactly the opposite of the message of Jesus!!

Anthony in Nashville

A typical church queen.

Some gay men are so pitiful in their lack of self-respect and courage.

Former COGIC

Terrell=FAIL

Bostonblk=FAIL

Church queens always try to cover each other's closet doors. I know, that was me years ago. I learned to love the sunlight. What is done in the dark always comes to light.

>>>Rod...I'm not sure if you are helping or hurting the man<<<<

No, Rod's just doing his job. Reporting the TRUTH. This is what TERRELL CARTER said with his own, beautiful God given voice. Too bad he is not using that wonderful gift for the truth.

TERRELL IS HURTING HIS OWN SELF!!
