Anti-Christ Superstar: The plight of Tonex b.k.a B. Slade continues » EXTV
Anthony Charles Williams II has never had a comfortable relationship with the industry that made him famous. He had a certain hip-hop swagger, and he cultivated a coy, teasing sensibility; he had the status of a sex symbol, while portraying himself as a righteous alternative to the decadent mainstream. He is only thirty-four years old, a young veteran. He has released dozens of CDs, which contain some of the strangest and most seductive Christian pop music since the glory days of James Cleveland; his most evident musical forebears are adventurous pop stars such as Stevie Wonder, Janet Jackson, and Erykah Badu. He knows his way around an old-fashioned spiritual, but from the start he delighted in embracing the cultural signifiers of the nonchurch world: Indian incense, hip-hop slang, Rastafarian head wraps, slim-fitting European suits, trunk-rattling bass.
Gospel Singer Tonex Comes Out As Gay And Changes Name [VIDEO]
May He would appear on Bobby Jones Gospel and numerous award shows wearing wigs and effeminate clothing. We even preached against his obscene gospel song lyric where he split up the word masturbate and we were accused of being judgmental.
In the song entitled The Naked Truth , the award-winning gospel singer raps about being "truthful" to the world. I listened to the clip myself and well, among other things, it is awfully suspect to say the least. In addition to apparently admitting his sexuality, Tonex also admitted to being molested by a preacher when he was six years old. If Tonex, who is currently the pastor of a church in San Diego, is indeed coming out of the closet — he would be the most popular gospel artist since Donnie McClurken to admit to homosexuality.
