i think ive decided jamal from “empire” could get all this jelly.
he ain’t ready.
i just realized he is jurnee’s brother.
“smollett” was the first clue.
don’t judge me.
so in a recent interview by “black film”,
malik yoba may have allegedly outed his co star on “empire”,
this is what he said…
Empire has quickly become a cultural and ratings phenomenon in the few weeks it’s been on the air. Empire fan favorite, Jussie Smollett plays as Jamal Lyon, has Google on fire wanting to know more about the sexy star behind Lucious’ now openly gay son that is so sweetly adored by Empire’s goddess, Cookie Lyon.
One of the main questions on the net ‘Is Jussie Smollett on Empire really gay in real life?’
According to the Empire co-star, Malik Yoba in an exclusive interview by Black Film, he reveals the answer to fans question:
I think that our show represents a huge opportunity to stay in the culture beyond entertainment value and there’s an intrinsic nature of you have the gay factor, right? So, obviously, Lee is gay. That was an important storyline for him. I think it’s important for people to see themselves. Even within the Black community. But if you aren’t really, really taking it off of screen and making it live in the community in a significant way…like I know Jussie, he is gay, and he’s very committed to issues around the LGBT community. He and I have a very close relationship.
why do people do shit like that?
confirm someone’s sexuality before they do?
well even if he is/isn’t,
jussie has always maintained his privacy.
no matter what roles he plays.
this is what he told “sway in the morning” about his personal life:
I am not willing to confirm or deny anything, I live my life…if anyone is looking to put me in a box, then that’s not going to happen. But if you really want to know about me, just watch, because I don’t hide anything.
people think malik was being messy.
now it could have been un-intentional.
he may not have known.
jussie may have only been out to his circle.
i’ll try to give malik the benefit of the doubt.
after this little slip up about someone who may lives discreetly,
i couldn’t help but wonder…
there are some people we privately tell our sexual preferences.
not everyone wants to be “out”.
it could be just how they “role” in life.
we hope the other person is mature enough to keep that secret,
but like many of us,
there is always some straight asshole who can’t get it together.
they want you to keep their secrets tho.
i’m sure if you slipped how they cheat on their wife,
or how she wears spanx under her clothes.it would be hell to pay.
so i had to wonder…
Can we really trust people to keep our sexualities privacy?
lowkey: on lighter news,
jussie signed a record deal with columbia records.
this is what he told ( x entertainment weekly ):
During the interview, Smollett was asked if he would release an album and he shared, “There will be a Jussie Smollett album. I signed to Columbia. So darling [laughs] I’m label mates with Beyoncé and Adele and Barbra Streisand.”
He continued to say: “It’s going to be a whole different thing. Now, the Empire family will still have something to do with it. I would love for Terrence to come and oversee the production of all of the music. And I would love for Timbaland to come on and Jim Beanz. We’ve all talked and they’re all down to work on it.”
congrats to jussie!
