Black Mamba in All White

7 May

Kobe’s forray into the modeling/fashion world has set the twitterverse & blogosphere on fire. Naturally from the uber alpha male and homphobic crowd, I’ve heard and read the labels placed on the photos. I must admit the photos do make him seem “suspect” and are perhaps femine. I think that people are missing the bigger point, the guy is tough on the eyes.

However in 2010 why are people so hyper sensitive to idea of a man bring portrayed in this way? Perhaps it’s a reflection of critics own insecurities & inability to be vulnerable. Maybe just maybe Kobe is very comfortable in his own character that he does need it to be affirmed by lesser persons. However at the end of the day he is still ugly… I’m just saying.
