This Cover Is All Wrong...

Madonna looks like an alien and is it really necessary for them to have an article on Luther Vandross' "secret gay life"."Out" Magazine

Damn...leave Luther alone and let him rest in peace. And what the hell does it matter? I liked him for his music and he was one of the best singers out there...that has nothing to do with his sexuality. Oh yeah...that cover is a mess.

I wanna read it. I remembered when I realized Luther was gay but it was like one of those "Well, duh" moments. I knew it all along but just never really thought consciously about it...same with George Micheal.

They put Luther on blast...now after he is dead which is truly some b#%tch ish. Then the former editor writes a long ass soliloquy about how mad he is that Crash won for best pic. His entire rampage is to lessen the impact of racism in this society. How can you walk over racism but want people to accept gay culture? If someone is gay that is your business and if you want to hide it you can, but for black people we can't hide that. We can take it off, cover it up, or put it "in the closet". It's there all day long. No matter how many degrees, money, fame, etc that we amass when we walk down the street people still think "NIGGER"

So screw Brokeback and that magazine

the article on luther is completely inapproriate, true or false. the arguements for why brokeback mountain should have won an oscar are tenuious at best. seriously, the movie was not all that. and here's a newsflash: winning an oscar will not legitimize the gay lifestyle, no more than winning an oscar will legitimize three-6 mafia. it's a freaking statute. while i believe that all americans should be treated with the same level of respect and afforded the same rights and privileges, regardless of race or sexual preference, it annoys me to no avail that people think that this movie anything more than just a movie. get over it. now you know how black people felt when malcom x didn't win an oscar.

This is not a good look for Miss M...As for Luther--I don't think we're surprised that he may have been gay but I don't think there's a need to put my boy out there like that--it's really irrelevant since he's not here anymore. Hell, even if he was here it would be irrelevant.

I was so focused on madonna's head that I didnt notice that the cover mentioned Luther being gay. I probably wouldn't have noticed had I not looked at these comments. Why is that information of any relevance now? Besides who cares...he made amazing music.

wow...that cover is fucked up..madonna has always looked a mess to me anyways so I'm not surprised by the picture.

Madonna looks great for 47 years old (though this photo is unfortunate). I doubt any of you will be in the same shape at such an age.

And anyone else (dead or alive) that "gets put on blast" -- folks chime right in with their opinion. Luther is now apparently a sacred cow. Can't have it both ways.

Everybody did chime in with the opinion that they thought he was gay too but that it didn't matter to them and it's fucked up that someone wants to write an article now that he's dead. I don't ever recall reading an article that even mentioned that subject when he was alive so now that he's dead it's stupid because obviously his millions of listeners didn't care then and it's a disgrace to write about it now that the man isn't here to "put them on blast". Why don't you read before you start making stupid ass comments?

that bitch is ugly.

People need to leave Luther alone now that he is gone. That's very disrespectful to me. He's not here to deny or confirm it so why start gossiping about him?

It is telling that revealing that Luther was gay is thought of as a negative thing to some of you. Only a homophobic person that has a problem with gay people would think that. It's great that he was gay. Black people need to get over our ignorant problems with same-sex relationships. It is sad that Luther felt he had to keep his true identity from being known because of black people's ignorant homophobia. The good news is that we have a younger generation that will not accept the oppression and injustice of living in the closet.

THE PIC OF MADONNA DOES LOOK RETARDED BUT THAT IS DUE MOSTLY TO THE HAIRSTYLE...I PERSONALLY THINK MADONNA AS A CAUCASION WOMEN LOOKS FANTASTIC SINCE MOST OF THEM TEND TO LOOK LIKE A PAPERBAG THAT HAS BEEN BALLED UP & THEN FLATTENED OUT BY AGE 30. AS FOR LUTHER I DO THINK IT'S SHADY TO SPEAK ABOUT WHAT IS REALLY NOBODIES BUSINESS AFTER THE MAN IS NO LONGER HERE TO DEFEND HIMSELF. HE GAVE THE BEST CONCERT I EVER ATTENDED! R.I.P LUTHER....

Madonna is one of the most successful women in the HISTORY of the world. She and Oprah are on the same level. When Madonna does anything, the world hops on board. Just like they do Oprah.You people who were hating on her can only hope to look like that at 47 with that body. Not to mention her $300million bank account. Fuck the haters.

Thanks for raising the level of discussion with your fantastic display of intelligence. You've added so much to this conversation. lol

I'm sorry but Madonna never has, nor will she ever be on Oprah's level! When Madonna moves, the world just watches hoping she doesn't break any of that plastic a$$ body of hers. Her body looks young, but her face looks like something from "The Hills Have Eyes". Nobody wants to jump on the train that is bound for disaster that has been Madonna. Just look at the headlines this week- her own daughter asks her whether or not she was gay! And do we need to remember when this woman dated Dennis Rodman or her infamous sex book? I'll admit the girl has talent, and she is even an icon in her own right, but to say that she's bank rolling like Oprah and that "everybody wants to be like Madonna" is a massive lie!

Your a retarded mutherfucker who can't read obviously. I didn't say she had as much money as Oprah. What difference does that make anyway??? You must be only 12 years old because if you weren't you'd know that Madonna has just as much influence as an Oprah on what is cool, or not. Who, that wasn't Jewish already, had heard of the Kabbalah?? Not until Madonna started doing it. When she does something, the world follows, especially when its fashion related. Get a clue before you start with me. Ok?

"Your a retarded mutherfucker who can't read obviously."

Wow, I'm retarded, yet I can decipher between "your" and "you're".

"I didn't say she had as much money as Oprah."

You're right, you didn't, and I must have misinterpreted this when you said that Madonna was on the same level with Oprah- I am woman enough to admit when I'm wrong.

"Who, that wasn't Jewish already, had heard of the Kabbalah?? "

Those who seek out these things for themselves, and do not wait for someone else to educate them, or validate their interests.

Get a clue before you start with me. Ok?

Lol, I'll get a clue when you get some grammar lessons and learn how to express yourself without using profanity. As for starting with you, I was not aware that sharing my OPINION was doing so. You seem a little too upset over someone's opinion, and appear to be taking this a bit too personally. Please consider getting a life and stop worrying about mine, ok?

The grammar comment is funny, because it is true. "You're" = you are. "Your" is the possessive for "you". Anyhow, the reason they are talking about Luther being a homosexual, is because the magazine IS a gay mag. So, the fact that they are griping about Brokeback not winning is no surprise. As for people looking at black people and thinking "nigger", I think that is ridiculous thinking. That just isn't true, and if you think it is, you need to get more confidence. Assume everyone thinks you are the great human being I'll assume you are. Now, if people are judging you for your bad grammar, well that's just your fault for not paying attention in school.

I agree with whoever was saying that Madonna is a trailblazer. The average person had never heard of the Kaballah before she started talking about it.

Okay. So someone has attempted to confirm Luther's sexuality. WHO CARES? The man made great music that is TIMELESS. Can we please appreciate his talent and let his legacy as a great singer live on?

I like that Luther's gay life is told. I agree that it would have been better to hear it from Luther while he was living, but knowing that this R&B sensation was gay gives hope to all the young gay boys who keep half of themselves hidden from everyone they know best out of fear of rejection. We should hear more about those influential individuals in history, in literature, and in music that were gay. Just to name a few: Zora Neale Hurston, Langston Hughes, James Wright. And those that everyone knows is gay but have yet to disclose it to the public: Missy Elliott, Tyson Beckford, Oprah Winfrey. Just as it was important for little girls to see the face of a black actress (Dianne Carroll) on TV, it is important for young gay children to know that they are not alone. But this is a harder task since a person's black identity is seen on the outside, but a person's sexuality is not always seen on the outside, and many choose to bury it deep beneath a pack of lies.
