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!!!

I'm really enjoying the whole series. Some of the footage is fantastic. I'd never actually seen some of the artists, like Mamie Smith or John Lee Hooker as a young man. Sister Rosetta Thorpe as a young woman! Even the background footage is great- the churches, juke joints, chain gangs - priceless. One really poignant moment was when B. B. King talked about how an audience of black teenagers booed him at a festival and how it hurt him, but white teens later gave him a standing ovation.
