Young Thug explains why he prefers to rock women's clothes


ATLANTA RAPPER Young Thug has without a doubt pushed the envelope as far as the boundaries of masculinity in the hip-hop culture are concerned.

From referring to mentor Birdman as his “lover” on Instagram to his taste for wearing dresses, the hip-hop star has continuously been accused of being "feminine" and "gay".

In a recent interview with GQ magazine, Thug cleared the air on the reasoning behind his wardrobe choices.

He said he wears women’s clothes “because women’s clothes are [slimmer] than men’s clothes. The jeans I got on right now, they’re women’s jeans. But they fit how they’re supposed to fit. Like a rock star.”

Thug, who is currently engaged to a woman, goes on to say that the overwhelming majority of his clothes are women’s.

“The only thing I probably have in men’s is like briefs. T-shirts. Ninety percent of my clothes are women’s,” he said.
