Tyler Perry: Who Does He Think He's Fooling?

It's so cringe when these obvious closet cases hire women for image purposes. Even worse when they add children to the fuckery. Good thing I never supported his awful movies. And I never will.

He was in Aspen last week. Coincidental I'm sure.

He's fooling all the little old Black Evangelical grannies who made him rich.

But they would rather believe the fantasy as opposed to the reality of Tyler Perry.

R2 Why Sonja Henie?

I used to think he was gay but now I think he's just a femme-Butch straight man if that makes sense.

R11, I agree!

R11 he's scared of the black homophobic fanbase he used to make all his money. They essentially keep him forced in a glass closet but I guess the money is worth his soul. I personally think it's pathetic.

R9, It's because he looks masculine and doesn't have gay voice or anything. But there's little nuances of him that remind me of a middle aged black woman. Hard to explain. And then the rumors of him effing the actors he cast but I think they may be made up.

by Anonymousreply 15January 26, 2023 1:44 PM

R15 He's not all that masculine and he definitely has hints of gay voice.

by Anonymousreply 16January 26, 2023 2:09 PM

R16 is correct. You can see Perry flaming from space and if I were talking to him on the phone without knowing what he looks like I would(correctly) assume I was talking to a gay man.

R19 The Old Spice guy is gay?! Seriously? I must've been living under a rock hahaha. I think he has a sexy voice.

Straight men as successful as he is at his age would have several children by now. Especially one that is as deep into the church scene as he is. Anymore, any successful Hollywood types in their 40s with tons of money and no kids are dead giveaways for closet cases. Usually those types are very ego driven and want to populate the world with more people like themselves. So not to have any children when you so easily could, is a pink flag on the play.

Yeah, I think if TP were straight, he would have been married w/children, by now. Maybe even a 2-3 times (married).

He'd want to have an heir to his fortune and business.

He does look like he's smelling cookies, sometimes.

R23 It's that prissy upper lip of his that kind of dovetails in the middle like a candy heart that makes him look so gay.

He's as bad a Corey Booker, who suddenly comes up with a girlfriend every time he runs for office. Last one was an entertainment lawyer in Hollywood, while he supposedly lived in Newark, New Jersey. Neighbors never saw him. Second floor of Hawthorne Avenue two-family was turned into a police sub-station. First floor empty. Booker was staying in Manhattan with his man love.

by Anonymousreply 25January 26, 2023 3:21 PM

R16, I think I know what you mean. It's the rhythm of his voice but it's not high pitched and actually deep.

Tyler "thinks he's fooling" all the people (of which there are many) who accept simple check-box representations of sexuality. That's a lot of his audience. I'm bet he knows there's another subset of people who doubt his sexuality and are on to him. But, he also knows that without definitive "proof" it will all just be gossip and innuendo like it has for myriad celebs before him.

R25 Why would Rosario Dawson beard for him?

by Anonymousreply 33January 26, 2023 4:45 PM

He's not merely afraid of his own fans. He's afraid of himself, and of his God. Remember, he is deeply religious, and soaked in a particular brand of homophobic bullshit and toxic masculinity.

Christianity doesn't just kill bodies. It kills souls, too.

I googled Perry and Lavernius Coles. The search took me to Lipstick Alley of all places. Many of the posters there think that because Perry and Coles were sexually assaulted as young boys, that’s what made them “confused” about their sexuality. Does anyone over there crack open a book on sexuality and sexual identity? So embarrassing.

R25 Rosario Dawson went along with Corey's farce to further her career. Same reason Shayne Taylor signed-on with Ryan Seacrest. When she only got a one-time cooking episode on his show after three years, she bailed. Now the 48-year-old Ryan has a deal with a 22-year-old.

I bet a lot of his fans know damn well he's gay. The thing about "culturally conservative" people is that they want to see their gays acting straight, however transparently!

They think that if a person can't actually *be* straight the least they can do is conform to heteronormative standards, and it's right and proper for "those people" give up their pride and personal happiness rather than rock the boat. Seeing gay people pretend to be straight makes smug heterosexuals feel happy, secure, and that all is right with their world, and Tyler Perry should be ashamed of himself for pandering to them.

by Anonymousreply 47January 27, 2023 11:12 PM

I think you're right R47 my mom who's an older black lady loves his plays and movies but will also make fun of his mannerisms. "He's too comfortable playing a woman and wearing women's clothes" she'll say. So I think his audience knows....why they wont call him out for his lies is a whole other question.

by Anonymousreply 48January 27, 2023 11:56 PM

What?! He’s trying to front-and-stunt as actually being straight? I thought he was glass closet but “not talking about my personal life,” blah blah blah, bullshit. Going beyond that in his lies is insane. He’s slept with half the dudes in ATL and is ripe to be taken down publicly. Deservedly so.

Every show Tyler Perry produces is totally cut-rate.

The actors are told to just keep going no matter what, and they'll shoot an entire season of a show in just a few weeks! I guess genre stuff basically only marketed to a black audience doesn't need too many eyeballs to make a profit if produced cheaply enough, right?

You'd think at his level of success he would want to be doing more higher quality work.

by Anonymousreply 53January 28, 2023 7:07 AM

Forbes estimates his net worth at a billion dollars. He doesn't need to make another movie ever again. Even if there was a big backlash from his fans if he came out, he certainly has enough money to insulate himself from the backlash. He reminds me of closeted Hollywood actors from decades ago.

Why is he crawling up Markle's butthole? Is that part of his hiding his gayness from the masses? Or just cynically trying to win over the black female audience?

by Anonymousreply 56January 28, 2023 10:28 AM

R56 because he's probably secretly crushing on Harry. He probably tells his staff he'll do the cleaning just so he can sniff the sheets after they leave. He's probably already jokingly asked Markle what side of the bed she sleeps on so he knows what side to avoid.

There was a recent semi-viral Tiktok with an actor who worked on an episode of "Meet the Browns." He talked about how hectic and chaotic the filming was: episodes filmed in hours, multiple on-the-fly script rewrites, major character changes, etc. Of course at the end, he praises Perry and claims he learned more in a day on the set of his show than he would in ten years of 'acting' school.

R60 I'm sure Tyler taught him how to take the cock to the base without gagging.

In Hollywood, that's more valuable than acting school.

Yeah Madea fans have expanded way beyond black church ladies, that was his starter audience. People I know with kids throw on Madea in Space or Madea Halloween and they love that shit to keep them entertained.

He is 53, one of the mostly wealthy people in Hollywood, and well past the age where people care who he's sleeping with. There no reason for him to come out really.

by Anonymousreply 69January 28, 2023 8:40 PM

R69 he doesn't have to come out, just not beard. It's embarrassing and teaching a whole generation of people that to be successful, successful at HIS level, you have to hide who you and pretend you're something else. That being gay is still something shameful.

by Anonymousreply 70January 29, 2023 8:29 AM

What I have learned about being gay and coming out is that you have to teach people how to treat you, how to respect you. He is teaching people that they are right in their assumptions and that being gay IS something you should hide, keep to yourself.

r70 Ive never really seen him beard with several actresses, and we all know that this woman pictured at OP was just very well paid surrogate to have his kid(s). To me its like Queen Latifah, these people have been around forever.

r73 Be real, dont act like you'll become a huge Tyler Perry fan if he comes out. If he or Queen Latifah decide to publicly come out, all you will do is say we knew all along anyway and continue bashing them for not doing so earlier. That is not being supportive to the gay community, and you all barely support most out gay men in Hollywood anyway.

In my opinion, Jonathan Groff did it best. He came out early in his career and has been working consistently since. And he hasn't been ghettoized in gay characters. In Mindhunter, a very good show by the way, his character was going down on his girlfriend. I was like, you go Jonathan.
