August Alsina

R&B crooner August Alsina posted this boudoir portrait of himself channeling Jamaican singer Grace Jones on his Instagram page.

In the artsy photo, Alsina wears a red couture patent leather jacket and a cutoff fishnet stocking around his head. Wisps of marijuana smoke swirls from his parted lips.

The 24-year-old New Orleans native, who is rumored to be Trey Songz's secret lover, is slowly unleashing his feminine alter ego.

The push to normalize homosexuality has increased tolerance in the hip hop community in recent years. The current gay-friendly environment allows closeted men like Alsina to step out of their comfort zones.

What do you think of Alsina's look?

    There's nothing wrong with admitting that someone of the same sex is attractive. That doesn't mean you're gay, it means your honest.

    "Trey Songz"s secret lover"..........Sandra is so bold and blunt. Screaming!!!!

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    And he's going to stay traveling to Florida on tax payers' dime, so that he can continue to collect $250K members fee for his Mar-a-Lago resort. For all that dumb a$$es who voted "green/libertarian" or who didn't vote at all simply because they couldn't stand HRC, this is what the fukk you get. Those of us who had common sense from the beginning are the real ones suffering.

  • classynsassy

    "Wisps of marijuana smoke swirls from his parted lips". ???? Sandra stop it ?

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    Sandra, to put August & the legendary Grace Jones in the same sentence is a sheer disgrace to Grace.

  • klwbaby

    So Sandra do u consider yourself to be abnormal because you are gay??

  • Justlooknout

    yeah, but we gonna suffer if folks don't come through and get rid of his simple minded behind.

  • Justlooknout
  • Junkanoo

    I think a lot of older gay people struggle with internalized homophobia ,Sandra may deny it but l would invite her to lay on tired futon and talk through her issues, cash only

  • Carolina Blue

    Why do you think that?

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    I agree 100%.

  • Junkanoo

    I wish Grace Jones would come out with her new album already her 2008 album was a nice treat but nothing new since. She needs to come school these little heffas on how to set trends light years ahead

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Oh I'll be mad and crying. Happy that what he went through is being told by Jay and Spike.

  • Strong.Yardwoman

    I used to keep birth certificates, passport, couple dollars; not much.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    You can grab a look, but Grace and others have an ESSENCE that is projected through their images! She's a one-of-a-kind that can't be replicated! The strength, beauty, and fierceness doesn't resonate here! It's not even as fierce as Madonna's Rebel Heart image, let alone Grace Jones!

    Artists today need to stop borrowing, and what they do take, make it totally their own, i.e., Michael Jackson taking song and dance man, legend Gene Kelly dancing, the fedora of Kelly and Frank Sinatra, mixing it with James Brown, Little Richard into his totally signature ARTIST imprint!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    He's VERY talented, but seems hollow, vacant inside! Fame doesn't suit everyone who receives it well, IMO!

  • SumthinSweeter

    Hmmm so it's okay to be a petty Betty about american black artist but stay TRUMPED up for those who are leading the nation you were not born in, into a mockery literally every damn week? You have to be mentally ill. Get help!

  • Evillene

    I don't know...I like it. He's entitled to veer away from the stereotypically savage machismo of the Black male singer/rapper/athlete. The only reason black males are forced to assert such a menacing masculinity is because we are so profoundly oppressed and we have internalized all the negative messages. We are told we are not men and have no worth -- we are brutal, unthinking beasts. Black men need to start regarding themselves as human beings and not animals. Masculinity is not a cage.

    And you say I like to erase history Sandra lol? Do we need to recall what Hip Hop started out as? Leather skin tight pants, furs, huge brim hats, eye make-up and more. Remember, Hip Hop was borne out of the end of the Disco Era, and early Rap was deeply impacted by Disco culture--which drew heavily from gay culture.

    But I digress because all this is is a marketing effort--and its working. And August is not a Hip Hop artist.

    He's just trying to push deeper into the mainstream and he knows its gonna take something very bold to do that. Smart guy.

    And I LOVE Grace Jones. She's a living legend, a global icon, and a very sweet, fun and down to Earth woman who rarely gets the enormous credit she deserves for showing women, men, and gays how to appreciate their own inner power and outer beauty.

    Kudos to August for recognizing artistic elegance and greatness when he sees it.

    Lol the boys running you raggedy??

  • CaliVirgo

    Nah not really they spent the day with there grandma. I'm just tired

  • Erin Blockabitch

    Yes. It's a delivery service. They bring everything to your door from Starbucks to bubble tea, BBQ, pizza, burgers, salads, vegan fare, Mexican food, desserts, office supplies, Kiehl's and even MAC. You just DL the app and decide what you want and whether or not you want to pay the delivery fees, which can be astounding in some cases.

    They have pretty much anything you can think of. If you want lobster and Cristal, they can deliver it.

    There are so many delivery services now it is unreal. Mom and I ordered CPK last night. Most of the people who pulled up to Curbside are delivery people picking up orders for DoorDash, Postmates, etc. Between Instacart, Amazon, Google Express and Postmates, people don't need to leave home to do anything unless they want to. It's amazing.

  • jussaying

    welp. thanks for sending me into tears before i even roll out of bed.

  • jussaying

    it wasn't suggesting that all boys have some deep hidden secret and that they're gay. i think you missed the point entirely. it's simply a coming of age story and the main character happens to be gay. what makes it a great film is that for the first time, black gay men aren't depicted in very shallow vain iterations of one feminine stereotype. also, that the boy was gay wasn't exactly overstated or the only thing about him.

    you have a kid who is teased for being different - before we really know that he is different. he didn't showcase any supposedly gay mannerisms except for being quiet and that was mostly due to dealing with a mother with a drug addiction. you have as he is growing up, him being neglected by his mother - having to go to school in the same outfit for several days at a time when kids are really petty and superficial which also makes him a target.

    it showcases how one wrong move for black boys (chiron hitting that kid which was well deserved mind you), ended him up in prison. whereas if it were a white kid it's doubtful a fifteen year old would have been tried so severely or worse shipped away to prison. so there are elements of what the film 13 discussed.

    the main characters both deal in duality. that was what made their performances (all of them really) so great.

  • jussaying

    oh i didn't know that. I know her as Marni from Lena Dunham's show "Girls."

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    The trouble was her crazy grandmother and bed ridden dad! Like a real life horror film ! So angry !!! Not only was the little girl beautiful inside and out , she was eloquent beyond her years!!! Glad she kept a diary!!!!

  • Erin Blockabitch

    She was indeed wise. She was the one giving herself positive affirmations when her demon of a grandmother and weak arse father are the ones who should've been doing so. I can only hope and pray her brother is able to overcome, considering he is merely 2 years older.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Eyebrows tweezed too...

  • Erin Blockabitch

    I'm mad as hell. Anyone blaming that poor child for her death needs to meet the same fate.

  • jussaying

    That defense attorney was grasping at straws. There wasn't any kind of excuse or reason to use to justify that abuse. That old granny might as well be rolled straight into the cremation pit because she's pretty much overdone.

  • hi-liter

    LAWD I swear August is giving Young Thug a run for his money.

  • MystyBlu

    IMO the movie was a coming of age story that just so happened to have two gay characters. Was more about their experiences in an impoverished community than homosexuality. I think you have to really pay attention to the dialogue in the movie. Chiron's Mom mentions his sexuality on multiple occasions to hint at the reason he gets picked on. Also with Kev, you see he is protective of Chiron from the very beginning...even though he knows why the other boys tease and harrasss him. There was a clue he may have been interested in him but he played the role of the conflicted hypersexual alpha male to cover up his sexuality. That experience on the beach didn't just happen out of the blue. The movie was more about how taboo homosexuality is in our community and the ways in which these two young men dealt with their sexuality. Also gives another side in that Chiron was not the hypersexual one...never really had sexual experiences outside of dude. Flies in the face of "all homosexuals are sex-craved". This is already a novel so I won't get into the way they made the Mom and Juan into three dimensional characters with depth, not the stereotypical drug addict/drug dealer. I loved the movie for the way it portrayed a lot of the issues that happen in urban life without being preachy or condemning. The writers obviously lived that life and had a very empathetic feeling for each character. Give it another chance, I think that Oscar was well deserved.

  • Erin Blockabitch

    I just had a discussion with my mom about this last night. Some of these people are off their rockers.

  • MystyBlu

    lol I should've kept reading! I think the writers did an exceptional job of making every character human. Showing all sides of who they were. At first I was like how did Mahershala get noms when he was only in it for a few minutes? But his impact on the film and the main character were definitely felt throughout the movie.

  • jussaying

    ?? me too. all of them had very nuanced performances. it wasn't in your face drama, it was subtle. marshala's character was a drug dealer, but was very kind hearted. so you have that duality there. and chiron was a character we saw early on that was very sensitive, but eventually had to front like he was hard. his was a very nuanced performance.. esp the dude who played him as an adolescent. a lot of his struggle was internalized and he didn't express that frustration until he went off on that kid.

  • hi-liter

    Lol...I can see August and Jaden being friends since Jaden becoming the face of LV last summer when he wore the LV leather skirts and jackets in a fashion campaign. I can see August trying to do some high fashion chit like Jaden does and trying to be androgynous and fluid. August trying to get into the fashion world.

  • MystyBlu

    Exactly! You really had to pay attention to the little details. It wasn't about yelling or giving long monologues. Didn't seem like acting at all...more like a documentary that simply followed real people through their daily lives. To me that's a feat in and of itself. To just feel like you're a fly on the wall of this young man's life. Even "hard" Chiron had a heart lol He was mentoring that young boy just like Juan did him. And he didn't hesitate for a minute to forgive Kev and run to see him when called.

  • Junkanoo
  • jussaying

    right! i liked how when Kev called how you could see the front he wore fracture. and i especially liked (even though admittedly it's still a bit uncomfortable for me lol), how their moments together were tender but not overstated toward the end of the film. like if we hadn't the intel that we did, just casually passing them in the restaurant while they were talking it didn't seem like there was so much tension between them. i love that it is a very real relationship between them. that they aren't embodying societal stringent "gender identities," and they aren't reduced to one having to be stereotypically feminine or one having to be masculine. because even in hetero relationships, i don't think personality attributes are so polarized in that way.

  • World’s Moistest Jheri Curl

    Thank YOU!

    ? that fascade completely fractured...and he actually slept well that night (which it seems he wasn't doing) and had a wet dream. Showing their connection was real after all those years and the way things ended between them. Very real love story, with little to do with the sexual aspect of their relationship. They didn't end up in bed, but in each other's arms.

    I was kind of disappointed with Moonlight. The story was ok. The acting, minus Chiron's mother was ok. It wasn't great imo. I just couldn't get into it and I thought it would be really good because of the actors/director etc.

    Right!!! He said I'm gone just do this scene and when the funny buisnrss start you can count me out !!! Like the story didn't have a point other than to show a black man gay, a felon, AND selling drugs!!! Hell they could have st least showed him turning his life around like he finished school stopped selling drugs EVEN if they still wanted to drive home the gay point. But whatever I was disappointed it wasn't over worthy at all hell Fences was good AND Denzil deserves an ocar

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Homosexuality ain't never been taboo in our community we just don't entertain it never have if you gay be gay leave me out of it we ain't got to sit around and discuss you being gay!! I hate when ppl say that it's almost like they are giving and excuse for gay men who are d l to say it's because the BLACK community don't accept it or it's taboo and that's why they are DL. NO!! Folks hiding and lying because a part of them naturally feels like it's something wrong with what they are doing

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

  • Erin Blockabitch

    I have an update. Gizzell was taken from her mother and placed in the care of her bedridden father and grandmother, despite having a maternal grandfather.

    Here are some of the missing pieces to the puzzle:

  • countrygal

    I always do ?

  • Greatgrape37

    Nah bruh

  • violet_skyz

    Maybe the mother wasn't fit, must not be to let these monsters have your babies. So sad they would torture this baby...

  • violet_skyz

  • Erin Blockabitch

    The father, despite his inability to care for his daughter, alleged Gizzell's mother was homeless. I'm not sure how the laws are in their state, but public social services should've stepped in and helped the mother secure a home for herself and her child if that was the case. They deserved to have a safe, habitable dwelling in which to reside. That poor baby was being ritually abused. A doctor noticed physical abuse and never reported it to CPS, despite Gizzell's mother's complaints. The home Gizzell was living in was filthy. She never should've been allowed to remain there. And for the grandmother's public defender to suggest an 8 yo was "self-harming" is the last straw. If she was a white child, this likely never would've happened. She didn't have, as Paul Mooney says, the complexion for the protection.

  • Justlooknout

    Well, if I didn't say it before it was my opinion.

    I would have loved it he wax given more depth....because all I saw him in elementary school, high school the next him as an adult. His drug addicted mother played a huge part of me not liking the film and brief time That I saw Ali. I thought there could have been some reflection, flashbacks..

  • Justlooknout

    See what you are saying...she was trying to be funny.

    Allegedly

  • jussaying

    okay well that assessment is a fair one if you felt things were too nuanced. i was more so commenting on the fact that what it appears you took from it was that the film was suggesting that all black boys are harboring homosexual feelings.

  • hottlanta

    Just wait until they grow up and start looking for jobs. Kids are racist/mean towards each other. They FEEL threatened to something that is different form them. So to put this up as some kinaa fluff they don't see it is wrong.

  • KcoolMuziq

    RESPECT THE LEGACY! Don't use my musical idol in a negative way..

  • KcoolMuziq

    That is not true about Keisha's ex! It was proving that the stylist insinuated a TOTAL lie!
    So sick of everybody trying to make every black male gay or the dl.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I'm not personally trying to make anybody gay, straight, bi , tri, Down Low or Out of the Closet. I just think people are messy , birds of a feather flock together , and you have to watch who you surround yourself with. This includes the famous, infamous and everyday folk. He wasn't be " styled" when those videos and screen shots were taken. People put themselves in precarious situations then wonder why things like this happen. Daniel Gibson will know better the next time. The stylist was messy either way and hopefully he loses business. Business and personal lines shouldn't blurr. People don't understand professionalism.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I like it. It even looks like he got on eyeshadow lol

  • Liah

    WTF???

  • KcoolMuziq

    Exactly. The stylist should be reprimanded. He created that whole scenario. He needs to watch his back also.

    These black guys are turning ghay. That's why dads need to stay in their lives.

  • chappedlippz

    He has always had sugar in his tank, right?

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Stylist usually get hired by word of mouth. Then they have repeat clients. If he signed s confidentiality clause then he can be reprimanded. Otherwise he probably answered to himself. If his clients have signed long term contracts with him , and he does stuff like this it can be a way for them to break the contract. People will not to work with him if they think he will spread their business, or lie in them.
