Young Thug likes to keep people guessing. His new album Jeffrey is out, and if the title weren’t confusing enough, he’s also wearing a beautiful cupcake of a dress on the cover. I hope one day that wearing a dress while identifying as a man won’t be a super weird thing, but in rap at least, it’s unusual.
He also recently gave an interview with his his fiancée Jerrika Karlae for VFILE’s "TMI" series, and honestly, it’s delightful. They seem very in love, and have a real understanding of each other. No where is this more apparent than when Young Thug says, “I don’t care for sex.”
What? Lots of people don’t care for sex, enough that maybe it shouldn’t be treated as strange -- but it’s definitely a rare position put forward by musicians who are generally selling sex as part of their work. The two don’t seem to have any problem with Young thug’s preferences. Karlae basically says she made the first move about six months into their relationship, and that it helps Karlae with her jealousy problem.
It does seem like a good relationship.
