Well this is one way to get over hump day!
Love & Hip Hop: Hollywoods Milan Christopher is clearly comfortable in his skin as he just bared all for Paper magazine. How very Kim Kardashian West of him!
Now, Christopher has never been shy, as he was more than willing to be the VH1 hit’s first openly gay reality star. Nonetheless, this photoshoot has thrusted the 33-year-old rapper into a whole new kind of spotlight — and we’re not against it! Let’s just say the up-and-comer has been #blessed with quite a package. LOLz!
Caliente! Of course, in addition to his steamy pics, the Hollywood hunk opened up about what it’s like to be a role model for gay black men in the U.S. The Is You Mad Or Nah artist dished to the mag:
“I think it’s not that many gay guys who are African American who are out and who are comfortable? Right now, I can probably name about 5. And it’s millions, you know what I mean? I do think that I have a huge [responsibility for] representation of the community and I do think that I’m doing pretty well. I’m always being honest and being my authentic self, not really holding back and just putting my best face forward and trying to make things happen.”
“Prince and Michael Jackson. Those are my role models. I don’t know what Prince’s sexual orientation is but I think that he has the biggest influence on me because he was able to transcend from being a man but also being very effeminate and having both men and women just love him and respect him. I think if I could take part in our culture, that’s the part I want to take, that place. You know, where Prince left off. And of course Michael Jackson is one of the best entertainers ever. And he used his music to send out very powerful messages.”
Two excellent choices. But after seeing these photos, we think Mr. Christopher should be his own idol! We’d bow down anyway! Ha!
