Meet me at the ball?
Yung Joc caught a lot of heat after footage of him wearing a dress on the streets of Atlanta made its way around the web. People wondered if Joc had gone soft. Maybe it was just a way to free up his arms for the meanest motorcycle dance you’ve ever seen?
It got to the point that Joc felt the need to address the rumors. He took to Instagram and addressed all the hate, saying that we’ll just have to wait and see why he felt the need to wear a dress down the street.
“I knew the type of backlash that would come from this sh*t, I did,” he said in the video. “Let me address one or two things real quick. For those of y’all that are so quick to call on Illuminati and say I sold my soul, tell me how I sold my soul.”
Joc also took down people who claimed that wearing a dress made him gay.
“Yeah, I f*cked around. Some sh*t had to happen in a situation. I had to man up and put on a f*cking dress,” he said. “Gay what? It’s just a thread. It’s some sh*t a man made. It’s a thread. It’s nothing. If you give me a shield and a spear and put a godd*mn leather belt around my waist then I might look like a motherf*cking Roman.”
Clearly still bothered, Joc released another video where he explained that the move was meant to drum up publicity for his television projects. He also implied that viewers will probably get the whole story via an upcoming reality show.
“Newsflash. Y’all probably wondering what the hell Joc got the hell going on. Every time I see that little picture, I’m like ‘Damn, what is going on?’” he said. “It’s called internet manipulation. This is going to be one of the craziest times ever in my life or career. Am I going to take full advantage of it or will I be silent? I will not be silent and, yes, I will take full advantage of it. At this point in my life, you must watch. I’m currently on four television shows on VH1.”
“You’ll see me coming up here in October on Scared Famous,” he continued. “After that I’m pretty sure you’ll see me on Leave It To Stevie. You’ll probably turn around and see me on Hip-Hop Squares and you gona turn around and see me on possibly Love & Hip Hop so…”
Of course, fans were quick to point out that Joc posted two explanatory videos that were claiming to tell us why he wore a dress and never actually got to the part where he said why he wore a dress. Joc must have learned to keep the audience in suspense in whatever promotional courses he’s been taking.
How do you feel?
