Jay-Z Does Rolling Stone/MJB is an Advocate

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Today is the day for magazine covers. SMH. Jay-Z is on the cover of Rolling Stone, and Mary J. Blige covers the gay publication The Advocate and speaks about gay fans and homophobia in hip hop:

“The majority of my fans are gay. The majority of them are, and I have to really make sure that they know I’m paying attention to the fact that they support me, and I support them.”

“The real hip-hop, the real people don’t even care about that. They’ll love you and accept you no matter what because they know who they are. There are a lot of people trying to figure out who they are and what they’re gonna be. There’s a lot of confusion in that. Confusion causes a lack of identity. I’ve heard a couple of guys say foul things, and those guys are not around me anymore because when they say things like that, I’m looking at them like, What makes you so scared? You don’t know who you are? I guess it all boils down to them not being sure about themselves and what they wanna do, whoever that is. I won’t say any names. And I don’t dislike them or anything—it just makes me wonder about them period. ’Cause if you’re not sure about that, then you ain’t sure about a lotta things!”

    I wonder who Mary is referring to, there have been quite a few suspicious looking people lately hmmmmmm..

    who is mary talking about?

  • Taja

    Exactly Mary I couldn’t have said it myself. These hip hoppers are all gay and nobody is saying anything about it. I do disagree that most of her fan’s are gay. I’m tired of people acting like the gay community is so vast and so important. It’s black women who have been supporting Mary since jump. I’m not saying she doesn’t have gay fans I’m just saying they are not her main supporters. For the record I strongly support gay rights in every facet of life I’m just saying when it comes to some of these female divas I think they overcompensate and overcredit the gay community and leave us sistas out.

    I’m trying to figure out how they know that most of their fans are gay. Do they take a poll as they’re coming into the concert arena or something? I’m just asking.

    I like some of Jay stuff, but all that acting like you have support that gay shiz gotta stop. SO what if they support you. What if you had a lot of sicko pedo fans, would you support them too?!?! Get real homie. Alot of cats *know who they are*, but will never get down with supporting homosexuality. Nicca please. Trying to be nice & say nice things to everybody is killing our society.


    Taking a Closer Look at the Stories Ignored

    by the Mainstream Media

  • Optional C: Scalpel

    Gay is apparently the “new” black.

  • Royal Chocolate

    Say whatever you have to say to keep the checks coming in.

  • scorpio

    maybe this will shut up the naysayers who seem to think jay can’t dress his age. he looks so nice!!

    and HEY, i totally agree. i can’t see what he and beyonce have to discuss. dude is a lyrical genius and she can’t even put a sentence together. not to say mary is so highly intelligent, but at least they can share street stories.

  • scorpio

    sitfu, that’s mary’s quote. not jay’s.

  • yes

    whatever trina, drop ur “knowledge” somewhere else

    i dont have a prob wit gays but some folks do and just because they express that doesnt mean they are questioning themselves, it aint like they have no reason to have that belief

  • http://www.gravatar.com JawJa Swag

    Mary has a point and for those getting offended….she is talking to u…..RESPECTING someone’s choice of lifestyle does not mean that u agree with them or that choice. Just because u dont like somebody’s way of living dont mean u have make their lives a living hell.
