"Pose" star Billy Porter, right, dragged American Vogue magazine for featuring "straight" singer Harry Styles on a cover wearing a dress.

In an in-depth interview with The Sunday Times magazine, Porter criticized Vogue for not recognizing him as the trailblazer for men wearing dresses.

"I changed the whole game," Porter said.

"I. Personally. Changed. The. Whole. Game. And that is not ego, that is just fact. I was the first one doing it and now everybody is doing it."

Porter, who plays a fairy godmother in Amazon Studios' woke remake of "Cinderella", added:

"I feel like the fashion industry has accepted me because they have to. I'm not necessarily convinced and here is why. I created the conversation [about men wearing dresses] and yet Vogue still put Harry Styles, a straight white man, in a dress on their cover for the first time."

Porter continued:

"I'm not dragging Harry Styles, but he is the one you're going to try and use to represent this new conversation?"

Styles, 27, has never publicly labeled his sexuality. But it's a well-known fact that he is ghey-for-pay -- pretending to be LGBT+ for clout.

"He doesn't care," Porter said, "he's just doing it because it's the thing to do."

"This is politics for me. This is my life. I had to fight my entire life to get to the place where I could wear a dress to the Oscars and not be gunned now. All he has to do is be white and straight."

The 52-year-old actor and singer, who released a single last week titled "Children", admitted he never dreamed he'd be so successful, "because I'm gay."

"I was told my queerness would be a liability and I would never have the kind of success that I have. And the naysayers were right for a very long time, until they weren't."

Rapper Boosie Badazz is convinced that NBA star Russell Westbrook wants to stroll out of the closet any day now.

In a recent interview with DJ Vlad, Boosie said his OG uncle told him that men who wear feminine attire secretly desire to be women.

Russell, 32, is known to wear dresses and skirts on occasion. However, he presents as a heterosexual male who is secure in his manhood.

Boosie said he believes men like Westbrook (pictured below) use their popularity to live out their secret fantasies to be women.

In previous statements, Boosie has claimed he feels the need for him and other fathers to protect their sons.

"I don't know why a man would want to put on a dress and paint his toes," said the 38-year-old rapper.

Boosie added:

"I was raised by old gangstas. If you put on a dress you a b**ch... Times have changed now, Vlad, but back in the day, if you put on a skirt you is a f****** h*e."

Boosie, who was born Torrence Hatch, lost his father to gun violence when he was a child.

The prolific breeder has eight child by multiple women. His youngest child is 5.

Comedienne Tiffany Haddish purchased her own personal oxygen chamber to ensure she will always perform at her very best.

The Girls Trip star made the extravagant purchase after she heard basketball superstar LeBron James raving about the benefits of home hyperbaric therapy.

A hyperbaric oxygen chamber pressurizes the air so the user can breathe in more pure oxygen.

Hyperbaric therapy is well-known for treating deep-sea divers who suffer from decompression sickness or "the bends" from ascending too rapidly.

Hyperbaric chambers don't come cheap. They retail from $8,000 to over $200,000.

Rich Fury/FilmMagic

Tiffany told People's Every Day podcast:

"Now, just recently in 2020, I bought a hyperbaric chamber. That was a huge splurge. That was a down payment on a little house in Texas. That's because I saw LeBron James, and he said he be in hyperbaric chambers.

"I said, 'Well, if he is performing at his best coming out of a hyperbaric chamber, I need to be getting a hyperbaric chamber, too, so I can perform at my best.'"

Tiffany admitted she has been "splurging a lot lately", but recalled how her first big purchase was rather unusual for a celebrity.

"The first thing I splurged on was a microscope," she explained.

"That was back in 2016, 2015. Maybe that was 2014 when I bought the microscope. That was splurging, OK? It was like, a $300 microscope."

Asked why she bought it, Tiffany replied:

"Because I'm a scientist... I like looking at germs. I'm interested in nature, OK?"

Renell Medrano for GQ

Two years ago singer August Alsina revealed he had a sordid affair with actress Jada Pinkett Smith, who is married to A-list actor Will Smith.

At the time of his scandalous revelation, Alsina, 29, said Smith, 53, knew about his wife's May-December relationship and gave them his blessing.

In the November 2021 issue of GQ magazine, Smith admitted both he and Jada, 50, have stepped outside their marriage over the years in order to keep their Love alive.

"Jada never believed in conventional marriage," Smith tells the men's fashion magazine.

"Jada had family members that had an unconventional relationship. So she grew up in a way that was very different than how I grew up. There were significant endless discussions about, what is relational perfection? What is the perfect way to interact as a couple? And for the large part of our relationship, monogamy was what we chose, not thinking of monogamy as the only relational perfection."

Smith, who shares daughter Willow, 20, and son Jaden, 23, with Jada, admits they both opted for an open marriage after years of monogamy.

"We have given each other trust and freedom, with the belief that everybody has to find their own way. And marriage for us can't be a prison. And I don't suggest our road for anybody. I don't suggest this road for anybody. But the experiences that the freedoms that we've given one another and the unconditional support, to me, is the highest definition of love."

Smith said he often called legendary actor Denzel Washington for marital advice over the years.

"Throughout the years, I would always call Denzel. He's a real sage. I was probably 48 or something like that and I called Denzel. He said, 'Listen. You've got to think of it as the funky 40. Everybody's 40s are funky.' He said, 'But just wait till you hit the fuck-it 50s.' He said, 'Just bear with your 40s.' I stopped and I was like, 'The funky 40s and the fuck-it 50s?' And that's exactly what happened. It just became the fuck-it 50s, and I gave myself the freedom to do whatever I wanted to do."

Will also explained to GQ magazine why he scrapped the making of Emancipation, the film that tells the story behind the photo of "Whipped Peter."

The historic photo of the ex-slave's scarred back, taken during an Army medical examination, became known as "The Scourged Back."

The movie was originally scheduled to shoot in Atlanta, Georgia, but Smith pulled the movie out of Georgia in response to Gov. Brian Kemp's new voter protection bill.

"I've always avoided making films about slavery," Smith told GQ writer Wesley Lowery.

"In the early part of my career... I didn't want to show Black people in that light. I wanted to be a superhero. So I wanted to depict Black excellence alongside my white counterparts. I wanted to play roles that you would give to Tom Cruise. And the first time I considered it was Django. But I didn't want to make a slavery film about vengeance."

Tamron Hall

Tameka Foster Raymond discussed her new memoir "Here I Stand... in a Beautiful State" on Wednesday's edition of "Tamron Hall."

Tamron Hall was joined by celebrity stylist and ex-wife of singer Usher Raymond, Tameka Foster Raymond to discuss her new memoir "Here I Stand... in a Beautiful State" and how she coped with the tragic loss of her son, Kile Glover, almost 10 years ago.

Raymond is pictured with Usher and her sons Kile (center) and Ryan Glover (right) in 2008.

Tameka Foster Raymond on her reaction to her son's grave prognosis and how she remained hopeful:

"Oh yeah, there were several moments. But I was very vigilant. I would say in the hospital - I didn't let you into the room if your energy was off. If you were speaking anything but life over my son, you couldn't come in. So when the doctor would come in and say, 'we've been watching' I'd be like, 'hey, change your tone,' because I really think you know there's power in your words. And there's power in the tongue and I felt like he could hear you. So it was very hard, they told me, you know, early on, and it was very hard to hear."

Tameka Foster Raymond on how she learned to process her son's death:

"I did come to a realization that we all have a certain amount of time on Earth, whatever our time is, we don't know how much time we have. And I realized that he had fulfilled his contract, he had done what he was supposed to do on earth. And I know it's hard when people hear me say that because they go, 'How can you say that? He's only 11!' But he had made such an impact and he had such good energy and he was such a good person. I remember we would go see horror movies and Kile would say, 'I'm not going to watch that!' Like he didn't even like that energy in his headspace. So I knew he was amazing..."

Tameka Foster Raymond on overcoming years of denial:

"It took a long time to get here. I probably figured this out in the last year. I spent 10 years not believing it, in denial, still throwing parties, you know what I mean. I would give the most huge something on his birthday. I would go in, like rent a whole museum and start this and balloons and we'd have food and cake and performances. Like I would go crazy about this thing I was like, 'This is my right, he's still here!' I definitely wasn't in this space. It took a while, it took many losses and me replaying all these different things for me to say, 'our lives are predestined.' I think our path has already been decided. What we're going to be, what we're going to do is already in God's hands."

Nick previously said he consulted the Bible before he began sowing his seeds after divorcing singer Mariah Carey in 2014.

"When you're talking about monogamy, monogamy is usually sex... I'm only for you, you only for me. I just don't feel like that's a truth of mine... I don't even expect that of the young lady."

The comedian and the pop singer share 10-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

Nick, pictured with ex-girlfriend Rozonda Thomas, recently insisted all of his kids were planned and none were accidents.

"I don't have no accident. There's a lot of people that I could've gotten pregnant that I didn't. The ones that got pregnant are the ones that were supposed to get pregnant."

Here is God's command to Adam and Eve that Nick faithfully abides by:

Genesis 1:28:

"And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth."

Lil Nas X posed for a photo shoot in PEOPLE magazine with a gut full of his debut album, Montero.

LNX strapped on a prosthetic belly to celebrate the impending delivery of his "baby" on Sept. 17.

He tells PEOPLE exclusively that he decided to do the shoot after YouTuber James Charles pretended to be pregnant after listening to Megan Thee Stallion's verse on his new song "Dolla Sign Slime" for the first time.

"I was like, 'Oh my God, this is amazing,' so I immediately called my stylist," LNX claims.

"She was like, 'Wow, this all comes together. Your album. Your baby.' I was like, 'Yeah, this is my baby, huh?' As a joke, she was like, 'Yeah, you should do a pregnancy shoot.'

"I was like, 'You know what? That's actually brilliant.' So now we have this entire thing coming out, and it's going to be amazing."

Earlier this week, LNX trolled Drake by sharing an album cover of pregnant men emojis. Drake's Certified Lover Boy album, featuring pregnant female emojis on the cover, drops Friday.

Speaking about her LGBTQ fans, Saweetie tells PEOPLE:

"I think that it's important that we all respect each other. We all bleed the same. We're all human beings. I was raised in a household that believes in respecting everyone, no matter who they are, no matter what they do, because at the end of the day, we're all equal.

"We all need to call out what we're uncomfortable with. We need to call out what we stand for and for what we believe is right."
