Vh1 new dating show bisexual

Rappers were continuously asked if they'd work with Frank Ocean after he bravely revealed his acclaimed "Channel Orange" was inspired by unrequited feelings for a man.And years after famously aligning with Elton John at the Grammys, Eminem, long criticized for his use of gay slurs, snagged a rap album Grammy for a record that had multiple slurs on it.In past installments of "Love & Hip Hop," viewers watched female models Erica Mena and Cyn Santana fall in and out of love, and a handful of female cast members identify as lesbian and bisexual.Those women, however, did not generate the sort of attention — negative and positive — that Christopher and Brock have.

But somehow we tiptoe around the subject and we never want to give it the same prominence and visibility as we do heterosexual relationships.

"I want to do hardcore rap," Christopher said, "but I've had friends say you shouldn't because you're gay."In rap's early days, N. A and Public Enemy made no qualms about their disdain for gay men in their lyrics.

By the late '90s, the Beastie Boys had formally apologized for homophobic lyrics in its seminal 1986 debut, "Licensed to Ill" (which was originally supposed to be titled "Don't Be a Faggot").

Secrecy has been a major point of contention for the couple.

Christopher is openly gay but Brock's family didn't know about his sexuality before the show premiered (some of his family members are no longer speaking to him, he said)."It's a bit overwhelming," said Brock, 27.
