Gay Flashbacks On ‘Empire’ Were Based On Director Lee Daniels’ Childhood

Lee Daniels

Last night, the ambitious drama/musical ‘Empire’ debuted on FOX. In one of the flashback scenes, Lucious Lyon (played by Terrence Howard) beats his 6-year-old son for wearing his mother’s feminine things. The flashback was based on ‘Empire’ writer and director Lee Daniels’ emotionally troubled childhood.

In an interview with former CNN host Larry King last year, Daniels explained how his police officer father beat him and dumped in a garbage can after he wore his mother’s shoes and wobbled into the room where his father was playing cards with his cop buddies.

Daniels said the beatings had no affect on him. He said he came downstairs the next Sunday wearing his mother’s shoes and carrying her purse.

Daniels was 6 years old — and by that time, the small window for successfully navigating through his psychosexual development stage had already passed.

Ages 2-6 is the crucial psychosexual developmental stage where boys begin to focus on their genitals and seek to identify with the same-sex parent. In the absence of a healthy male role model some boys will being to form an unhealthy attachment to their dominant/aggressive mother’s feminine things as a way to connect with her emotionally and gain her acceptance.

If the dominant mother (or weak father) rejects the child’s behavior, the boy will not navigate successfully through this stage of psychosexual development (Oedipus Complex).

Be aware that not all boys who covet their mother’s shoes will grow up to be cross dressers or gay.

What did you think of ‘Empire’?

    • inter_loop

      By that I mean good character and story writing—either of the shows I named you could put any good actor of any race into either role (albeit you’ll still have to cast correctly) and the show would still work. But a lot of our black-driven sitcoms and dramas aren’t universally appealing. Everything about our creativity is narrowly scooped, and subsequently weakens our power, reach, and profitability.

      I’m just excited as all hell that there are finally more than 2 black faces at a time on television.

      With the likes of Scandal, Empire, Power, Being Mary Jane, How to Get Away With Killin a B*tch – and a host of other friends and relatives… I’m there for black people being projected as something OTHER than what Mona Scott and Bad Girls club has done with images of black women in general.

      Way to go, Hollywood! You’ve realized the worth of black actors – FINALLY – and you’re casting black people who actually ACT to do it. With the exception of Tyler Perry’s inability to cast TALENTED actors, MOST of Hollywood is getting it right.

      I agree its more prevalent now to whomever said new shows gotta have a gay in it or an interracial aspect, but hell some old shows had the same. If not a direct character, then an innuendo. Jack was pretending to be gay on “Three’s Company” and Tom and Helen Willis was zebra like according to George on “The Jefferson’s”
      “Bosom Buddies” had men dressed as women the entire RUN of the show. Not new. Just more…out there.

      Sadly I think a lot of us refuse to watch some of the shows because of it. Kind of like with standardized testing which had questions that minority groups couldn’t relate to which caused wrong answers and minorities to score lower.

      Instead of branching out to what is unfamiliar we create a lot of entertainment purely based on what we know and then stop. How many movies/shows have big mama, ma’dear, madea type kwim?

      Max was lawyer but what did she pay for? She was a constant freeloader. Even more than food… Remember when she took the box of clothes Regine had left for Goodwill and was wearing her old stuff?

      Not every character was an exact carbon copy but the two shows were the same and tackled a lot of the same issues. Ex Ross and Rachel meant to be but could never work out until they accidentally had a baby together. Max and Kyle.
