Rapper-turned-reality-star Milan Christopher, a South Side native, is the latest celebrity to show off his, um, assets for Paper Magazine.
Christopher, who rose to prominence as an openly gay star of VH1’s “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood,” wears a leather jacket, gloves, socks and a smile as he sits on a motorcycle for one of the magazine’s digital covers to celebrate LGBTQ+ pride.
Other photos from the shoot, posted online Wednesday, were much, much more NSFW. “I just feel like in our culture it’s so taboo for a guy to show their bodies but it’s OK for a woman to do it. I just kinda want to break that. I think I have a nice body and I think it’s art and I just think that it should be celebrated like they celebrate women’s bodies. So you know, I could be a guy and be gay and be black and be artistic and be artistic in a nude fashion shoot in the same way that anybody else could,” Christopher says in the Paper Magazine story that accompanies the photos.
Christopher, who moved to the West Coast nearly a decade ago, tells Paper he plans to return to Chicago to perform at Pride festivities ahead of the release of his “Culture Vultures” album.
