Can we Talk?!? Tevin Campbell hasn’t been very visible in the past decade, just popping up here and there. Ironically, he did an interview in 2003 with Sister 2 Sister Magazine where he admitted to have a “Try-Sexual” attitude towards sex. After that interview…we didn’t hear from him so much. He’s performed on Broadway, and he’s had some spartic performances in the past 10 years, but one thing’s for sure, no matter what, he can sing circles around some of your most “current” R&B artists! This tenor voice possesses a four-octave range…how many of these youngins can hang with that? Watch the video of Tevin singing….lawwd these youngins ain’t got nothing on him! Check out what’s going on with Tevin…
Tevin looks like he’s on his way to a “Comeback”! After a “shutdown” performance at Essence Music Fest 2014, and a concert at B. B King’s Blues Club & Grill in New York, Tevin is getting ready for 2015. Seems like Tevin’s had his share of hurdles in his career, but the now 38 year old Tevin, may have gained many lessons that might make 2015 the year that we are reintroduced to Tevin. Back in 2003, his interview with Jamie Foster Brown had everyone talking. This was “Pre-Social Media”, but the effects of the interview have been long lasting. Here’s an excerpt from the 2003 interview with Sister 2 Sister Magazine.
Tevin: I’m not gay, but there are a lot of different things that I do like, sexually. Being in the business, you are introduced to a lot of different things. I’m not gay but I’m a freak and I think a lot of people know what a freak is.Jaime: I don’t. What is it?Tevin: Basically, I’m trying a lot of things. Being open-minded. It has nothing to do with attraction. It’s just having fun and I did a lot of that on the road with dancers. We had truth or dare.Jaime: So you’re saying it could be male or female? Whatever is happening at that time?Tevin: Right. I am not exclusively attracted to men. I’m not gay, but sexually…Jaime: Would you say you’re bisexual?Tevin: No, just TRY-sexualJaime: What is that? You, me and he?Tevin: Leave that to the imagination
When asked by SoulTrain.com if he would discuss his personal life or if it deters him from wanting to be more open. Tevin said, “I always say that I have to live my life for me. Everyone has to go home at night and live behind closed doors. No matter what you think you know about a celebrity and what they are doing, you truly don’t know. Everybody lives behind closed doors… As far as what I do in my personal life, if you get to know me then you’ll know. But I have friends and family that love me for who and what I am. I don’t need other people to love me for who I am, I need them to love me for my music and if they can’t do that then you’re not a fan. I divulge a lot in my album. I know the questions that people ask, so really the only way you’ll get to know me is through my music.”Now, Shhhhh, here’s Tevin breaking it down:
