Gay Hip Hop Star Milan Christopher Goes Full Frontal Nude For 'Paper' Mag
We can't take our eyes off of 33-year-old hip star Milan Christopher's incredible Paper Magazine shoot!! The star of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood goes full frontal nude in the sexy NSFW shoot and nothing's left to the imagination!!
Asked by Paper why he agreed to do the shoot, Milan shares:
What made you want to do or what made you agree to do like a fully nude shoot?
Well, I just feel like in our culture it's so taboo for a guy to show their bodies but it's ok for a woman to do it. I just kinda want to break that. I think I have a nice body and I think it's art and I just think that it should be celebrated like they celebrate women's bodies. So you know, I could be a guy and be gay and be black and be artistic and be artistic in a nude fashion shoot in the same way that anybody else could.
You overlap these different identities--you're black, you're gay, you're artistic--do you think about this question of how do you balance these different sides of yourself? Do you kind of transcend all these roles? Do you even think about them separately ?
I think about them separately because they are very separate. But I also feel like all those things encompass who I am. During pride month, I always think about all of the things that the LGBT community lacks and things that I feel like should be changed. And I think about equality, and the stigma and the taboo, and all the things that we work so hard to break through. So I think that this particular shoot, I think this is really important for not just the culture but for the community and pop culture in general. I've never seen it done in you guys' magazine before and I've really never seen it done in a way where it's like woah. It's been years--I think something [there was something like it in] the 70s--I forget the actor, but he did a full frontal and it was really crazy.
Burt Reynolds, yes.
I don't even think that he showed dick, but he did this nude thing for Cosmopolitan and it was a huge scandal.
And so I want that. I want that "break the internet" moment. I want people to look at this and be like, "Oh, wow, it's ok." This guy is a musician, he's on TV. He's doing this, he's doing that but it's ok.
More please, Milan!!
