Odell Beckham Jr Covers GQ / Addresses Gay Rumors

Published: Tuesday 23rd Jul 2019 by Sam

Odell Beckham Jr oft isn’t one for interviews and does most of his talking on the field.

However, for August’s issue of GQ Magazine, he pairs his suave shoot with a telling set of quotes.

The no holds barred feature sees the Cleveland Brown‘s NFL star respond to the long-lingering rumors surrounding his sexuality.

His words on the matter after the jump…

On The Constant Suggestion He’s Not Straight:

“I’ve never had an opportunity to talk about this. Honestly wasn’t offended. I’ve never once had no problem with anybody who has their own personal life that they live. I have friends who are gay. It was almost more funny to me. I almost messed with them even more. It’s like when someone gives me an ultimatum, I’m usually always going to go to the opposite way of what you want me to go. So when they would say that, I would almost mess with them even more. I have no problem with anyone’s sexual orientation.”


The interviewer goes on to note that “The idea that someone must be gay — or that being gay is in any way shameful — because they’re dancing or have blond hair seems so small-minded.” A sentiment Beckham seems to agree with.

For, he added:

“Or because they’re ‘close with other men.’ Even like little videos where they see me leaned back or something, they’ll say that I’m looking at a guy’s ass. And I’m like, “Bro! You don’t even know where my mind is at.” It was just a lose-lose. They’d see me with a white woman and be like, “Why don’t you be with any sisters?” I have no problem with any race. Love is love. If you’re attracted to somebody, you’re attracted to somebody. There was such a stigma built up, [as though] I don’t like my own women. It’s like, ‘no, I don’t like anybody who annoys me. [laughs]’”

 

He concluded on the topic:

“So someone can’t be happy, someone can’t be dancing. ‘Oh, he’s always around guys, he’s never around girls.’ I just don’t want you to see what woman I’m with, and I don’t want you in my personal life. I always try to keep my personal life my personal life. I feel like I don’t owe that to anybody.”


Kudos to him.

    • Kenneth July 23, 2019

      You have to work and use the computer and internet, and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem.

  4. LoveIsLove July 23, 2019

    His personal life is just that… what would we gain to make our lives better knowing who OBJ is consensually interacting with sexually.

  5. MessyBoots July 23, 2019

    #zaddy is NOT homophobic!!!! Cheers to a baller King!🙌🏾🤴🏽

  6. J July 23, 2019

    🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈😜

  7. Clarkson July 23, 2019

    Nah I don’t think he’s gay
    He’s just a straight dude who is a bit soft, cries when watching titanic, loves fashion, listen to beyonce and Rihanna, loves getting manicures, isnt afraid to hug or kiss another man etc.
    I dont get gay vibes from him at all

    If he was gay, there will be messy gay guys coming out claiming to have slept with Odell

  8. MessyBoots July 23, 2019

    He actually didnt even tap around the issue he addressed it full on.

    He said A) “I have no problem with anyone’s sexual orientation.”

    B) “So someone can’t be happy, someone can’t be dancing. ‘Oh, he’s always around guys, he’s never around girls.’ I just don’t want you to see what woman I’m with, and I don’t want you in my personal life. I always try to keep my personal life my personal life. I feel like I don’t owe that to anybody.”

    He’s absolutely right. He owes NO ONE a damn thing!

    SN: I wish he did owe me sonething b/c I would be the first in line to collect. 🤴🏽😘

  9. Keith July 23, 2019

    I don’t watch much (any) football, but I’ve always liked OBJ as a personality. Hopefully, his actions and attitude have opened some doors for black men to be less rigid and free to express a range of emotions…

  10. carlenciaga July 23, 2019

    y’all are ridiculous. no matter what his response is, y’all feel he is gay. smh. kudos to you odell for being openminded

  11. Danny Bey July 23, 2019

    Yall just want him to be gay so bad to fulfill your trash ass gay fantasies and the man SAID WTF HE SAID. He doesn’t have to explicitly say “IM NOT GAY IM STRAIGHT” for yall to believe or accept it. Gays obsession with “straight looking” men with “gay tendencies” and wanting to make them gay is absolutely digesting and trash. Yall complain and cry about society’s social constructs regarding homosexuality and the homophobia associated with it, yet yall have your own social contruct that you implement on others where if a man shows any sign of femininity or whats deemed less than straight, he must be gay. Go on g***** and suck a d*ck and let this man live gahdamn. Buncha James Charles a**wipes.

    • Herman Livingston July 23, 2019

      Well said swear I think the same thing!

  12. Tyty July 23, 2019

    Basically no matter what answer he gives…people already made up their minds his gay so he’s not going to even bother defending himself against it. He is who is you can’t force someone to fit into your idea of straight. Wether is gay or not what’s this thing of trying to force people to identify with sexuality? One’s s** life isn’t public fodder to eat up.

  13. Skarr July 23, 2019

    You immature bottoms want everyone to be gay LoL. If he indeed was gay, then what??? Odell is secure in his sexuality and clearly trolls the public. He lets y’all believe whatever y’all want to believe, and has every right to do so. Any promo is good promo!!! At the end of the day, he’s a damn good football player and that’s facts.

    • Clocking the fake Beyonce haters July 23, 2019

      I see it’s a trend to insult gay men by calling them bottoms. That’s so stupid. Sexual position should not be used to insult or be condescending

  14. A&R July 23, 2019

    Question? Why does it seems like society projects this secret pressure onto LGBT community to voice what they like sexually and forced them to blanket their whole person in their sexual expressions?

    I don’t think translation is needed for those aren’t secretly wanting to sleep with him. He said he doesn’t owe outing his sexual interest/ personal life to anyone. The world must learn that for some people, their sexuality is reserved for just that, sexual activity. They don’t define their complete character and or person by it. And that’s why he said he keeps his personal life personal. He’s a professional football player. He’s paid to play football. That’s is his main professional obligation. If he decides to offer/ share any information about his intimate deep space, it’s to be done on his terms and not demanded by onlookers. I hope more people with alternative sexual interest realize this and be ok with some men identifying as men who just like men… and keep that liking private (not DL). No different than modest behaving heterosexuals.

    Your sexuality is a fraction of your identity. You don’t have to lead with it nor announce it. You can simply just be and choose to reserve information about your sexual side for those who you plan to have s** with. Dazzit.

    Clearly a raging Queen and bottom, okay gurl with the blonde hair and piercing like George Micahel and the weird dress sense. Straight as a melon.

  16. Melvin Bass July 23, 2019

    If you’re really a prince I’ll marry you.

  17. Jamie July 23, 2019

    I don’t think he’s gay. I think he’s comfortable and not overly masculine. He’s simply happy being OB. He likes to enjoy life and believes in having a private one. What’s wrong with that?

  18. Lil nas tee aws July 23, 2019

    Somebody done touched that juicy booty.

  19. Ronald Anderson July 23, 2019

    DO U AND BE U. DON’T WORRY ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE THINK OR SAY. KEEP IT REAL BAEBAE. SHAKE THOSE HATERS OFF AND BE HAPPY 😀 😀 😀

  20. Caleb July 23, 2019

    This is the most beautiful man ever created

  21. Moti25 July 24, 2019

    BYE! If you aren’t there’s no need for the long thesis statement. But hey it’s none of my business anyway

  22. Corey July 24, 2019

    Love is love is love Like what ya like. That’s your business! 👍

  23. Rudolph July 24, 2019

    Odell first of all people need to mind their on business, You don’t owe anybody anything, he’ll let them talk and you be yourself do what you do.

  24. Barbara July 25, 2019

    that’s right OBJ… you dont owe not one a damn thing…mind your business

  25. Mack July 27, 2019

    I agree with this young man wholeheartedly. It is not anybody’s business who someone else Associates with. And whether he is gay or straight what does that have to do with his performance on the field or who he is or what type of man he is? Society really needs to mind their own business, I often wonder if the people who are making these accusations what open up their lives to the rest of the world and invite them in and let them see everything that they do as much as they want to be a part of other people’s lives. Let the shadow man live stop putting words in his mouth and stop trying to inquire in his business mind your own business and leave everybody else is alone. Let that young man live his life and y’all love y’all

    • Sirelvin July 27, 2019

      When you become a public figure the expectation should be everyone will be prying into your personal life. You’re dreaming.

  26. Sirelvin July 27, 2019

    He shares thoughts on gay people to deflect from addressing his own sexuality, got it. You were caught admiring drakes ass on national TV. Just stop it.

  27. Vincent August 12, 2019

    I don’t see why people are always questioning a person’s sexuality. You like what you like and love who love. O’dell I too my hat off too you for just being you and ignoring tell comments. It does not matter too me if you are gay or straight. You are a great athlete

  28. Vincent August 12, 2019

    I don’t see why people are always questioning a person’s sexuality. You like what you like and love who love. O’dell I tip my hat off too you for just being you and ignoring negative comments. It does not matter too me if you are gay or straight. You are a great athlete
