Former MTV executive, Terrance Dean is creating quite a stir on these mean internet streets. Apparently, Mr. Dean has written a tell-all documenting his life as a closeted homosexual working in the film and music industry and his relationships with other closeted homosexuals, which include popular film stars, rap artists, and music producers entitled Hiding in Hip Hop: On the Down Low in the Entertainment Industry–from Music to Hollywood.
Dean says he won’t name names (I assume for fear of his life)…but that hasn’t stopped the net from speculating. Check out this review of the book I came across today when I left the hood and ventured into the internet suburbs:
Obviously Kanye West and Diddy will get a mention. Anyone who thinks West likes the women need just listen to his lyrics. Sure, they’re laden with vaginal-love, but we all know the saying, “The lady doth protest too much.” As for Diddy. Two words: Fonzworth Bentley.
We suspect Dean will inspect Jay-Z’s closet, and Ne-Yo, who has repeatedly denied, yet embraced rumors, may make an appearance. Our black pal Lauren Williams, who edits sister site Stereohyped, suggested that Russell Simmons can expect some queer questioning. That makes sense: only a homo could stand marring Kimora Lee, who’s one of the most mannish, obnoxious women in history. And that’s why we love her.
Bow Wow and Omarion should also expect the lavender limelight. They have, after all, been rumored lovers in the past. And, in a surprise suggestion, Williams pegged Busta Rhyme. Why? Because he’s so homophobic. You know how those anti-gays love their butt sex.
Oh, and we’d be disappointed if Queen Latifah doesn’t get a little scandalous love… (Source)
Well…somebody needs to tell all them “DL” brothers that they aren’t really hiding anything! Who do you think will be “outed” in the book??
