American rap music is an industry ruled by machismo. It is a place where reputations are made by shady pasts, the aura of violence and ultra-masculinity. But now an explosive new book is lifting the lid on one of hip hop's most unexpected secrets: that many people in the business are gay. Terrance Dean, a former executive at music channel MTV , has penned a memoir of his life and times in the hip hop industry as a gay man.
News Buzz Daily even quoted Ne-Yo as saying that Jenner gave him "the inner strength to admit to my kids, my family, my friends, my fans and ultimately to myself that I am gay. According to News Buzz Daily, Ne-Yo also said that he knew he was gay as a young boy but never had the courage to tell the world. Bruce is very brave and beautiful.
