NSFW: Milan Christopher of Love and Hip Hop Hollywood Poses Nude For Paper Magazine

There's never a bad reason for him to pose nude.  Like ever.  Milan has been on his grind since forever and shows no signs of slowing down.  He's been releasing music, he's done a number or activist related appearances and flip through enough channels and you'll spot him on TV.  The interview with Paper goes deep.  He talks about being a role model, how he ended up on love and hip hop and his dream date with Odell Beckham Jr.

You overlap these different identities--you're black, you're gay, you're artistic--do you think about this question of how do you balance these different sides of yourself? Do you kind of transcend all these roles? Do you even think about them separately ?

I think about them separately because they are very separate. But I also feel like all those things encompass who I am. During pride month, I always think about all of the things that the LGBT community lacks and things that I feel like should be changed. And I think about equality, and the stigma and the taboo, and all the things that we work so hard to break through. So I think that this particular shoot, I think this is really important for not just the culture but for the community and pop culture in general. 

Do you consider yourself a role model?

You know the craziest thing? I was just hosting in Detroit. I posted a picture on Instagram and it was this little eight-year-old boy, caucasian boy from Canada, who begged his mom to drive him to Detroit to meet me and he knew all the words to my songs. I was just like this is the weirdest thing. I never knew that I was influencing that age group or that they were even paying attention. So, I do think, in a sense, yes, I am a role model. But I also think that at the same time…Im nervous. But this takes a very strong person to go face forward and make it happen and make people accept it.

Tell me, how did it come about that you got on Love and Hip Hop?

Well, I had been making music for about two years and I have this song called "Is You Mad or Nah?" People all around the country started saying "Is you mad or nah?" It's a black thing. And they didn't know where it was coming from but it came from me and my best friend Lola [Monroe]. And I think they got wind of it. I was going on the show to be a friend of a cast member that was already there and when I got there, they were like, "Oh my god, who is this guy?" and they were very interested in my story. Then they found out I was gay and they were like, what? They really expounded on that. They wanted to bring that to the forefront because it's something that's been lingering, everybody knows it goes on in the hip hop community but no one has ever talked about it or gave it a story line. They were like that's great, we need this.

How do you meet guys?

Umm, at the gym--there was a time that I used to have Grindr, I don't have it anymore.

What kind of response did you get? Did people think that you were like not really you?

MC: Oh, well, this was before that, before the lights, camera and action. I used to use Grindr. Right now, I kinda use the gym, Instagram, Snapchat.

So if a cute guy sends you a direct message you'd respond?

Yeah, we'll talk and then maybe hook up or meet up or whatever. So yeah, I think Instagram and Snapchat are my number one apps. 

What's your dream date? With whom and what would you do?

My dream date…Would be with Odell Beckham. He's so fine. And we probably would just chill out at a pool, at a really nice house in the hills. And just eat and chill and talk by the pool.
