Meet Sakima, The Pop Crooner Who Wants to Talk About Gay Sex
"F--k me like I'm a problem. I'm a problem," croons about-to-be-on-your-radar R&B singer Sakima on "I Used to Have an En Suite," the opening track to his new EP, Fascimile. In the four songs, the 26-year-old platinum blonde makes it clear: it's about time we hear about gay sex on the radio.
Rather than playing it safe like mainstream LGBTQ artists ("That music is so dull. I’m so over the narrative"), Sakima sings about sex in a way that wouldn't be unusual for a heterosexual artist, but is rarely heard coming from queer lips. It's unfiltered, but mature -- and necessary.
On the heels of his EP's release, Billboard talked to the rising star about challenging clichéd mainstream gay tropes, the importance of Grindr and how Zayn Malik inspired one of his tracks: "His songs are really cool now that he's not in that really s--t boy band."

Cher Sounds Off on Trump's 'Cheating' & Why She's 'Not a Fan' of Her Six Decades of Hits
No one has ever said, “Gee, I wonder what Cher is thinking.” During her six-decade career as a singer and actor, she has earned a reputation for blunt opinions, clothes that reveal more than they conceal and an unchaste flair for expletives. Long before the acronym DGAF was in vogue, Cher had no F’s to give. In one of her most infamous moments, she called David Letterman “an asshole” -- to his face, and on his own TV show.
“They don’t make them like her anymore,” says Pink. “She is the smartest, wittiest, most sharp-shooting rock star ever. And her style was always the most fearless.” Cher has won an Oscar, a Grammy and an Emmy. She has had 22 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, and because of her unmatched longevity, she was the first artist to score a No. 1 single on a Billboard chart in the 1960s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, ’00s and ’10s.
Bono Has A Message For Young Christian Artists
U2 musician Bono has spent years reading and learning from the poetry of the Psalms, a book of the Bible that contains ancient hymns.
If there’s one thing Bono has realized from his studies, it’s that art always requires honesty.
During a conversation with Fuller Studio, the rock star spoke at length about the intersection of faith and art, particularly art that is produced by Christians.
“I would really like this conversation to unlock some artists,” the singer, a devout Christian, said. “Because I think there are trapped artists and I’d like them to be untrapped.”
Ed Sheeran waves LGBT pride flag at London O2 show

Meet Marshall Bang, Korea's first-ever openly gay K-pop artist
Despite being known around the world for its pop culture and entertainment (amongst other things, of course), Korea is still a very conservative pace. Whether it's race or sexuality, Korea still has a long way to go in terms of being an all-inclusive and accepting society. It's understandable, of course, when you consider how homogenous and traditional the country is. Even in the usually progressive world of entertainment, being openly gay is not considered a smart move, especially for the talent, whose success is measured by how accepted and liked they are by the public. In 2000, Hong Seok Cheon, a television personality and former model, revealed that he was gay on a popular variety show. Initially, the producers edited out the footage from broadcast, but the exchange was leaked, and all hell broke loose. Hong was quickly let go from all of his gigs, lost sponsors, and was forced to deal with unprecedented public backlash.
And 17 years later, a young man from L.A. is prepared to put it all out there as a Kpop star, prepared to become the first openly gay singer in the history of Kpop.
