B.Scott Compares Himself To Prince And Michael Jackson
Multi-media maven, B. Scott, was allegedly told by Black Entertainment Television that he couldn’t wear high heels and makeup to host the 2013 BET Awards pre-show red carpet. Scott, who has recently come out as transgendered speaks about the incident and other stars like him.
Via S2S Magazine reports:
The incident was even more of a surprise considering that B. is known for his androgynous appearance, which arguably should have been expected.
“I have been on television like almost 30 times at this point, and I’ve always presented myself with my hair beat back to the back row of church—that’s my phrase for being fabulous—and my makeup and androgynous clothing and high heels,” said B. who compared himself to other celebrities who’ve challenged the lines that separate male from female, such as Prince.
“I’m not the first of my kind. There’s been Michael Jackson, Prince and Grace Jones and the list goes on,” he said, putting himself in the company of the King of Pop.
B. admitted that there was no issue during previous appearances on BET, but that’s not stopping the pending lawsuit. Nor, is BET’s apology.
“The evidence will show that they intentionally discriminated against B. based on his appearance and his gender identity,” said attorney Waukeen McCoy. “I think we have grounds to seek damages.”
