R&B singer Miguel recently offered some advice to men and women who engage in “sexting”, and warned of the dangers behind being too free with the sexually-charged text messages.
Miguel also believes the average person is more daring with sexting rather than actually verbally expressing their feelings.
“People are way more bold texting and Facebook-ing things than they are saying it. You might say something that’s a little more forward than if you were in person. I’m always on Twitter and BBM; it’s definitely, um, helpful. I try not to do it too much on Twitter, though. You could make a huge mistake–you think you’re sending a direct message [to one person] but you’re sending a tweet to everyone [laughs]. (VIBE)
In January, The LOX’s Sheek Louch also described the dangers of sexting.
“[‘Picture Phone Foreplay’], that’s for the chicks that’s sending me them pictures,” Sheek said in an interview. “Word. That’s for them. They go hard on that camera phone…Nah, I’m not with it. Especially right now with how sh*t is, you send it to her and she puts it on all these sites and all that sh*t. I don’t think that’s cool. I don’t do that. Keep your sh*t to yourself until you’re with that girl. That’s it. Sextapes and all that sh*t is not healthy right now!” (Hip Hop Game)
Last October, Sheek’s former Bad Boy Records boss Diddy admitted to engaging in the act of “sexting” with women.
“I’m a sex-texter myself,” Diddy said in an interview with veteran television host David Letterman. “What is that, sex-texting? Even though Brett Favre is one of the best quarterbacks of this time, he’s allowed to send a picture of his p*nis — on these new BlackBerries, there’s a certain angle [that] gives you an increase in size and width that after you take the picture, you cannot help but send it to a loved one…” (“The David Letterman Show”)
A few weeks ago, Miguel addressed speculation over his sexual preferences.
“At this point, I’ve embraced a lot of worldly cultural and I made it a part of who I am. People who are here who have not done that may look at my choices artistically, how I express myself visually and ecstatically as questionable, especially to my sexuality. Whereas, people who have traveled or who have done the same, it’s not questionable at all [to them]. I think it’s really a question as to whether or not you’re ignorant to what else is out there or not. I don’t say that in anyway to offend anyone, I’m just saying if you don’t understand you got to catch up. We’re flying. For anyone that questions my sexuality, the honest truth is “I love women. I’ve always only loved women. That’s it.” And women kind of like me too, so it kind of works.” (Kenny Burns)
