In honor of pride week, I decided I wanna be honest with everyone and let y’all know that no, I don’t have a boyfriend anymore, but I have been casually seeing various beautiful women True love is a gift from God Himself ♥ Judge me all you want, but you will not ruin my happiness… I’ve learned to look at people as souls instead of whether they are male or female. And as always, Oakley is my #1 priority, and I will teach her to love everyone regardless of who they are or where they come from.
God is love ♥
Get it girl!
Dawn Richard from Danity Kane spoke with The Fab Femme about her LGBT fans.
Awww. My babies. I think they have a lot to relate to as far as going to war with people who don’t understand them. They have been fighting for a long time to get the respect that they deserve and be able to create life the way they desire. For me love has no color, no look and no gender. I’m also a big fan of androgyny which I think my LGBT following likes. I play with androgyny a lot and I love it, and I love the idea of not knowing whether it’s a woman or a man in a photo. That is art to me. I think that’s why it resonates so firmly with my fan base. When you move, and live, and feel, and you become art, you are accepted.
Former Playboy model LuAnn Lee says she recently hooked up with Mel B in a bathroom while the Spice Girl’s husband waited outside.
“It was very passionate and sensual. She’s like a man in that way – very assertive, very determined and very wanting. I can see why they call her Scary Spice. I went into the handicapped stall because it’s bigger and I wanted to put my purse down – and she just popped in with me. She said, ‘Do you mind?’ and came right in. Then she just threw me up against the wall and started kissing me. She was a good kisser. Her lips are very soft and full and she has a tender touch. It was maybe a five-minute kiss and after that she started going for other areas.”
Well OK then. So no, she didn’t mind!
