Earlier this year, Kanye went on MTV and went into this ridonkulous spiel (completely unprovoked and out of the blue) about how hip-hop discriminates against the gays, as if that was really one of the top issues affecting hip-hop in 2005. You could hear his advisors - just off screen - gasp, worried he was about to reveal his true sexual identity.
Well he hasn't come out of the closet just yet, but in the current issue of King magazine, in which he's named their Man of the Year for 2005, he offers about as much evidence as anyone could possibly need that he is indeed a DL brother.
Discussing his ongoing crusade against gay-bashing in hip-hop, Kanye remarked:
"Things have been clicking ever since. I found out my cousin was gay years ago, and even just dealing with my interior decorator, having to travel with him, I've had to deal with issues. There was a point I wouldn't even get in the car with him 'cause I didn't want people to see me with a gay person. I didn't want it to hurt my career."
Question: Why exactly would a rapper travel with his interior decorator? Also, why would any man, let alone a rapper, have an interior decorator in the first place?
Could this interior decorator "friend" and traveling companion of Kanye's have been the real culprit behind Kanye's bizarre "hip-hop discriminates against gay people" outburst on MTV last summer?
