Watch: Trapped In the Closet: Hiding In Hip-Hop (Part 2)

{Click here to read part 1}

For all the social strides towards equality, the topic of homosexuality remains taboo in many an arena – not least in Hip-Hop.

Indeed, despite living in an era where displays of sexuality are as flagrant as ever, such showings in Urban music are almost exclusively of the hetrosexual (and often, misogynistic) persuasion.

Do such practices point to same-sex relations being non-existant in the Hip-Hop diaspora? Of course not. However, what is potently underscored here, is Hip-Hop’s willing silence on topics of the rainbow persuasion. Particularly when it pertains to artists active in the hyper-masculine field.

What’s bothersome for many, however, is the genre’s continued embrace of homophobic lyrics and images. Images which perpetuate the ideology that to be gay is to be ‘less’ than a man.

And yet for many industry and cultural analysts, such a stance is as ironic as ironic can be. For, the very industry at the heart of discussion is dominated by those of the gay persuasion. From make-up artists, to managers, to label execs, to – of course- artists themselves. Rapper the Game indeed made no mistake when he declared “Beyonce really should have sung, who run the world? Gays”. Well, at least when it comes to any such discussion relating to the music world.

As such, in our drive to continually push the envelope, That Grape Juice TV brings you a telling segment from Byron Hurt‘s 2007 documentary ‘Hip Hop: Beyond Beats & Rhymes’.

In this riveting piece, Hurt probes Hip-Hop’s homophobia and undercover displays homo-erotica in the videos and images of some your favourite rappers.

Hot Shot: Rihanna Gets Edgy For Armani

Try as she may, singing just isn’t Rihanna‘s thing.

Yet, oh can Ms. Fenty strike a pose. Case, point, example her new ad for Armani Jeans.

Snapped by Steven Klein, the shoot channeled classic film noir – with a contemporary twist.

The 23 year old looks stunning in the edgy shoot which was unveiled today, marking yet another endorsement deal for the model.

Should the industry wake up from the slumber that allowed her and her marginal talent to hit it big, she’ll always have her looks to fall back on. Cassie-style.

Until then, we’ll bask in the fierceness that is this shot. Work!
