Cordell Broadus grew up in his young life as a football player. Now that the 22-year-old is making his own path, he is expressing his creativity in his own way.
Cordell scored a scholarship to play for UCLA but after realizing that his dad loved him for being himself and not a football player, he left school to become a model.
Broadus signed with MCM Worldwide in 2018.
Recently, pictures have surfaced of the model wearing makeup and women’s clothing.
People have been questioning his sexuality and assuming that he’s a part of the LGBTQ.
After the Neighborhood Talk reposted the photos, followers gave mixed opinions in the comments.
‘This is what happens when we stop getting A** whoopings🤷🏾♂️ When you rebel and go against righteousness. We all need guidance and structure and support. This generation is is under attack. Don’[email protected],’ wrote one.
‘People need to look back on Greek times and what Egyptian wore it’s a circle of life… realize the time of energy surrounding Him. Do it bro you are loved regardless to haters and disrespectful ppl. Many will follow but few are Chosen. It does not disguise God our Creator. God is full of compassion. He does not look at your outer appearance… He looks at your ❤️! And those who judge you will have there day. If they Knew God they would not be say these things,’ commented another.
This person slammed Snoop Dogg for his son’s decisions: ‘🤦🏿♂️🤦🏿♂️🤦🏿♂️ this s*** sad you failed snoop🤷🏿♂️’
Many of the comments were homophobic and Cordell has decided to speak up during an Instagram video he posted to his Story.
‘I was embodying a role, that s*** was on masculinity, and I channeled my inner Prince, I channeled my inner Rick James, and I don’t understand it. Whenever other artists that are not black wear makeup, paint their nails or put eyeliner on, society doesn’t put a label on them.’
He went on to say that he doesn’t follow the rules and will continue to express himself regardless of people’s opinions.
It’s great to see that this young man will not let other people’s negativity tear him down and will go ahead with forging a new path in life.
