Steve Grand speaks out in new video: ‘F**k yes I’m using my looks to my advantage.’

Steve Grand posted this video last night and says: ‘Everyone, remain calm. This video is petty but we will get through this ;)
I’ve uploaded 10 videos since December 21st and this is the first time I am lowering myself to this level (in that time at least) so bear with me.’

He then goes on to talk about his body.

‘I never asked not to be objectified – you can’t believe everything you read. Last summer I did express some amount of frustration with some of the gay blogs who continued to post almost exclusively the same shirtless pictures – mostly old modeling pictures of me. … As a human being I was a little frustrated. Keep in mind this was same thing I’d been experiencing over these last two years of this whole journey and I never really said anything about it before. But this time I had a human moment … yes it was unprofessional, yes it was lame that I spoke out.’

‘I just wanted to make this (video) to clear this up. ‘

‘This whole idea that you can’t be an artist and someone who sometimes likes to show off their body. You can think whatever you want about me and my music but that’s just awfully rich coming from mostly gay men – gay men who so often worship artists like Beyonce, Madonna and Britney (Spears). Our community seems to love to embrace beautiful, sexually empowered, liberated artists and songwriters who flaunt their bodies when they’re female yet roll their eyes up at gay men who do pretty much the same thing.’

‘And one more thing: Fuck yes I’m using my looks to my advantage. It’s a competitive world out there. Are you not using everything that you have to better yourself and to make yourself as competitive as possible in this world? If you’re not doing that, you’re not being very smart and you’re going to be left behind so use what you have.’
