Re: calling all fASHIONista men!!

That's interesting because I was watching an old episode of Dave Chapelle the other night, and his musical guest was "Big Boi," one of the group members of the popular rap group, Outkast. He was wearing an outfit that was very similiar to the White dude's outfit that I described earlier in the discussion. But instead, the artist Big Boi wore a black velvet blazer with padded elbows, crisp white shirt, relaxed jeans, etc. Is Big Boi "gay?" I also spotted Will Smith wearing a velvet blazer...

There you go again, putting words in my mouth... You seem to forget that I live in D.C. and I have worked in the entertainment industry for 20+ yrs. I KNOW gay when I see/hear it... and the guy you described is gay or he definetely wants to be... The men that you described do not pick their own clothes, their "fashions" are usually picked by gay males... And I do not work "outside" of the entertainment industry... Sheeee's Back!!!

Re: Erykah Badu's stage show

While I've never seen one of her shows, you brought up an interesting point about stage performances. It's been more than 5 years since I've seen anything other than primarily instrumental jazz performances. Why? because too many vocal "artists" can't do live, what they do in the studio. And, those that come close to approaching their studio efforts, spend more time on their scripted to the minute routine and it comes across as the umpteenth time they've performed it.

Sometimes the two concepts confused in this discussion (not this one specifically but this issue) is linguistic gender and biological sex. One cannot argue from the first to the second.
