Snoop Lion

Rap & Gay

Don't Mix

Snoop Lion believes homosexuality and rap music are like Lindsay Lohan and sobriety ... they just don't mix.

Snoop -- a known supporter of same-sex marriage in America -- was asked by The Guardian if Frank Ocean coming out last year would pave the way for other gay rappers.

Snoop said we shouldn't hold our breath, explaining "Frank Ocean ain't no rapper. He's a singer. It's acceptable in the singing world, but in the rap world I don't know if it will ever be acceptable because rap is so masculine."

He continues, "It's like a football team. You can't be in a locker room full of motherf----g tough-ass dudes, then all of a sudden say, 'Hey, man, I like you.' You know, that's going to be tough."

But Snoop made it clear -- it's the nature of the biz, not him -- adding, "I don't have a problem with gay people. I got some gay homies."

Plus, we spoke to Snoop last week in L.A. about same-sex marriage. Here's what he had to say ...

Snoop's hilarious - love the guy ...

Wanted him and Dre @ IDOL this year -

But instead they're boring us w/Keith etc.

Nicky Minaj's ALMOST saving the show - but she can't do it herself. ...

Geez, Snoop, even if a football player's gay, it doesn't mean he's going to hit on a teammate. I know gay men who have straight friends, and they are not making passes at them.

Actually, sexual preference isn't really related to being "masculine" or "feminine" - those are cultural ideas and vary considerably in different times and places. That's also why you can't tell who is gay or lesbian from their mannerisms. People think they can, but they're generating a lot of false negatives and false positives that way. Entertainers exaggerate things for effect, and people tend to assume those are real signs when they're not.
In other words, there are a lot of very "masculine" gays out there, including among rappers. Sorry. Snoop.

Snoop really has nothing to worry about because no one in their right mind would find this drugged up greyhound looking fool even remotely attractive!

The fraud that black rappers (and black men in general) have perpetrated on the public is possible only because of: 1) the naivete of black women and 2) white America's ignorance of black male sexual lifestyles. EVERY SUCCESSFUL RAPPER HAS SEX WITH MALE RAP PRODUCERS! Period. It is an intrinsic part of the industry, a modern-day, black, gay version of the old casting couch. Homosexuality is a rite of passage in rap, a way of showing loyalty, and leverage -- something to hold over a young rapper's head (a dirty little secret).

Most of these men have had sexual experiences with men for YEARS before breaking into rap. Whites to understand the extent to which young black boys are preyed upon by DL black men. Outsiders know about the crime and violence, but not about the homosexuality.

NONE OF THESE RAPPERS ARE STRAIGHT. Beautiful women are used as props in rap videos, beards to hide the truth. Are you really so blind as to believe adult men who are DEVOTED to fashion (Kanye, Diddy), share open mouth kisses with their male producers (Lil Wayne and Birdman) and who are NEVER EVER seen engaging in any NORMAL EVERYDAY ACTIVITY with the mothers of their many many children are in fact "straight?" WAKE UP!!!

if a gay person is in public light, actors,athletes or politics. it is hard to come out. people can say all day long that it doesnt matter, but it does to some. it could cost you loss of money, but if you dont it could cause you to have an unhappy life. when an actor (like guy on greys anatomy) came out, i couldnt see him as a love interest of female actors on show. just couldnt shake that he was gay and not interested in women. i think a person owes it to themselves to be happy and make the choice they can live with..

Frank Ocean IS NOT a rapper.

All black entertainers are NOT rappers.

Singing does NOT equal rapping.

Ok so they me understand this. There are gay professional football players no way there is not. So after they leave the league and come out dosnt that still mean they were in locker room as a queer.

Dumb Snoop Dogg. There are are lot of masculine gay guys. There have already been a few ex NFL players who came out and there might be four current players coming out soon. What is really going to surprise Snoop Dogg are all the ghetto thugs who are gay or bisexual.
