Milan Christopher is coming to R&B singer Tank’s defense.
Quick backstory: While promoting his latest album Elevation two weeks ago, Tank told an interviewer that a man performing oral sex on another man doesn’t necessarily mean either of them are gay.
“Here’s the thing,” Tank told the podcast Lip Service. “Twice is excessive, but let’s dig into it. He sucked a d*ck once and then he’s like, ‘I’m not sure if I liked it or not. Let me try again.’
“And then he says, ‘You know what, it’s not for me, I don’t like the taste!’ It doesn’t mean he’s gay. It means he sucked d*ck twice… because the art of being gay is being gay.”
The remarks didn’t go over so well with certain people, mainly homophobes on the internet who don’t understand the concept of bi-curiosity and/or are terrified by their own deep-seated desires.
Now, Milan Christopher has weighed in on the controversy. Speaking to paparazzi from Too Fab, the self-proclaimed “rap phenomenon” voiced his full support for Tank, who, by the way, is a longtime LGBTQ ally.
“If you saw me writing with my left hand, would that negate the fact that I’m right-handed?” Christopher pontificated. “If you saw me eating a salad, does that mean that all of a sudden I’m vegan?”
He then talked about the handful of sexual encounters he’s had with women and how that doesn’t mean he’s straight.
“I spent my whole high school having sex with girls and eating p*ssy. I ain’t seen one person saying, ‘Milan Christopher is straight.’ So, we can’t be as judgmental.”
Christopher then went on to say that people are allowed to experiment. It’s how we figure out what we like and don’t like, after all.
“It takes experimentation. We’re human,” he said. “If you want to get technical, I don’t think a sexual act with a person is what makes you gay or straight. I think having love for that person is what makes you gay or straight.”
