You love wearing women’s clothes, but you don’t consider yourself a cross-dresser. Huh?
I am an individual. I am someone who is extremely fashion-forward. I am someone who has X and Y chromosomes, and I utilize them both. I am genderless. I am love, baby. Love, love, love, love, love. Love of living!
What are you wearing right now?
I’m wearing a beautiful, clean, snakeskin-print caftan. I’m barefoot and in touch with the earth. I am fresh and alive.
What do you make of the recent Vogue cover with Gisele and LeBron James?
When I see LeBron James on the cover of Vogue, I just think, Amazing talent. I don’t get King Kong. When I see Gisele, I see beautiful, stunning Gisele. I didn’t see it as anything more than two humans who are excellent at what they do.
Is Tyra Banks overrated?
Tyra Banks is fantastic. She started as a model and is now this amazing entrepreneur. Who isn’t inspiredby that?
You’re famous for your beard. How much do you think Tom Cruise is paying Katie Holmes to be his?
No. I don’t have any response to that. You are bad. [Laughs]
Have you ever been mistaken for a transsexual prostitute?
Oh goodness, I hear it all the time, honey! It was shocking at first: In my mind, I was like, A trannie doesn’t have a beard! [Laughs] Now it’s entertaining. People insist on finding some way to categorize. It’s not about me, it’s about them.

During the second quarter of Monday night’s Celtics-Cavaliers game, LeBron James yelled at his mother, Gloria, to “sit her ass down” after she came to his defense when got tangled up with Paul Pierce.”I told her to sit down, in some language I shouldn’t have used,” James said. “Thank God today wasn’t Mother’s Day. All I could think about is her. . . I know my mother. It’s fine, we’re good.”
It’s not right but it’s okay. Mama Gloria has been in the news headlines a couple of times for less than stellar behavior [most notably for her 2006 DUI arrest] so I can understand King James’ reaction. Gloria should seriously consider forming a NBA Mama Goon Squad with Ann Iverson. I can see them sneaking in Grey Goose bottles inside the arena now . . .
With a release of a new freestyle, Jay-Z bypasses rappers who have recently taken jabs at him to call out NBA player DeShawn Stevenson. [Listen]
The track seems to be the latest chapter in the ongoing rivalry between NBA star LeBron James and Washington Wizard guard DeShawn Stevenson. The basketball beef started when Stevenson called LeBron “overrated” and James said in repsonse, “With DeShawn Stevenson, it’s kind of funny. It’s almost like Jay-Z [responding to a negative comment] made by Soulja Boy. It doesn’t make sense.”
Stevenson then invited Soulja Boy to game 3 of the teams’ current playoff series to heckle James.
Now, Jigga has thrown his hat in the ring, releasing “Blow The Whistle.” On the short track, Jay dismisses the legitimacy of Stevenson’s antics rhyming, “Ask my n*gga LeBron / we so big we ain’t gotta respond / When you talking to a don / Please have respect like you talking to your mom.” [source]
Is married life that boring already? There’s nothing wrong with a little friendly rivalry action but this is semi-lame, Shawn. Please return to active duty as Bust It Creole’s chowder cooler / purse watcher and save the studio time for an album.
