^I know that's probably fanart but people are gonna get pissy bout him stepping on the american flag.
^He never made the mistake because he never took that picture.
That's a fan-made cover. And it's a photoshop job.

Steve Grand is smart he's not going to segregate himself into country music that wouldn't be wise. The smart thing for this guy to do is strike the iron while it is hot. First, he needs a manager, next, he needs to go to the studio, and he needs to make an album. After that, he will get publicity I am sure and media attention to promote the album but he shouldn't wait too long to get that album out.

one thing about the closet/you don't have to hurry/it will be bad tomorrow/so brother, don't you worry
I have yet to see anything in his video that displays anything that is exclusive to gay men. If someone was going to make it a point to use anything against him, he or she would find some aspect, regardless. The wrong person would dig for a reason, whether or not it is relevant or necessary.
OMG... Seriously people?! EVERY performer, weather it be in the music industry or acting, exploits themselves in some way shape or form to get ahead. Who cares if he has dipped his toes in modeling or has serveral alias. Who among us has only had one job in their life time? Who here hasn't used their work history to get a better job or used their experience to advance in society. Who here hasn't used an alias? Becareful in answering that last question because we all have alias on this site. Why can't we just be happy for the man's success? Who cares who came first in the music world? Who cares if he has associated himself with some porn stars? Ninety nine percent of us joined this site to share images of naked men and have viewed porn and who hasn't looked at the semi nude/nude photos of Steve Grand? We should be happy that he is not hiding who he really is! How do you expect society to accept the gay community when there is so much hatred, jealous, and superficiality in the gay community. We should all stand up and show our support to any individual who dares to show who they really are!
There have been MANY times where I have read remarks on this site where I am embarrassed to say I am gay. I also don't understand the need to label someone as "gay, straight, or bi." My sexuality does not define me! There is 99% more to me than my sexuality. Maybe we should take a look at our own lives before judging everyone else!!!
you're ignoring the main point. was all the undressing and nudity even necessary to begin with to get his point across?
i didn't know that being gay was basically reinforcing stereotypes and then we're giving him credit saying that "he's proud of who he is". he could have brought his message across without the stereotypes and etc.
one thing about the closet/you don't have to hurry/it will be bad tomorrow/so brother, don't you worry
I don't see Steve Grand doing anything differently than a straight young pop star would be doing.
I didn't realize being gay meant you had to button up and hide your sexuality.
Oh, and plenty of current celebs got their start doing modeling, even nude. Let alone some started by doing webcam strip/jack-off sessions, sex tapes, etc., and yet nobody really talks about that or seems to even care.

You don't like this Steve Grand guy, fine. But he's not doing anything wrong. So far, he's doing just fine.

Hell, Sylvester Stallone got his start in hardcore porn, yet it didn't prevent him from being nominated for a couple of Oscars for Rocky.
I like Steve (besides the physical attraction). He is not pretending to be straight in order to secure a future a career in a business where being gay can hurt your chances. That takes balls, especially at such an early age. Im in my mid late twenties and I am careful who I tell myself. He is getting some exposure and even if he doesn't become successful (in the makes millions sense) he still opening the way for the future. We should embrace artists that are trying to begin their career by being honest and open about their sexuality.
Why judge him because he did some nude modeling? We who visit this website inundated with pictures of naked men (thank god) are going to criticize these men when they try to go for their dreams or other careers? He has a great body and face. Any single straight female/male actor/singer would make use their other assets without thinking twice! Why not the gay one ?
It would be nice for a young black gay male entertainer to say he's gay and proud but Frank Ocean chose the easy way out.
Bisexuality is the game Frank Ocean plays because he doesn't want to get pigeonheld as a gay man and I am sorry I can't and I won't support him. Also, other black gay men such as the blog Discreet City have also BLASTED Frank Ocean for his false sincerity.
There is so much Frank Ocean with his celebrity could be doing for black gay men yet this guy plays the bisexual game to get record sales because he can appeal to heterosexual black women.
Frank Ocean isn't going to make a music video kissing another man or longing or yearning for another man.
Steve Grand did something that not even Adam Lambert has done made a song, about being a gay man in love with another man and be unapologetic about it.
I remember Adam Lambert saying he couldn't even make a music video with a male love interest because his record company wouldn't allow it. Staying safe, and staying in the middle of the road like guys such as Adam Lambert, Frank Ocean, Ricky Martin, isn't good enough anymore for queer male singers.
If Frank Ocean was honest and declared he's a black gay man I would respect him. However, as I am aware you know, in the black community there is a taboo about being a gay man. Frank Ocean and his PR people basically said, let's play the bisexual angle to get press which I find very pretentious and false on his part.
By contrast, I applaud Steve Grand for being bold and proud as a gay man. Steve Grand isn't playing some bisexual bullshit game that Frank Ocean is playing. This man is very clear he's an openly gay man and he's proud to be gay! And that's something which I respect very much.
As for Steve Grand using his sexuality well Steve Grand is HOT the guy knows it, he knows SEX SELLS. I respect Steve Grand more than Frank Ocean because he's unapologetic about being a gay man. All American Boy is a very bold song, this guy didn't play some game about staying in the middle or pretending to be bisexual or whatever. Steve Grand has made it very clear he's a gay man.
Also, Steve Grand posing as a model in semi nude shots is fine, I'm no prude and I don't have a problem with what he did.

^ Is that Photoshopped?
^ I don't know.
Does it look more porny or suggestive than his other publicity picture with the red silk sheets nicely embracing his hefty penis?
Please do not apologize for your opinion.
The more I see the All American Boy video, the more I absolutely adore Steve.
He's young, talented, handsome, and a positive gay role model.
The Three Musketeers... Bashful, Chrisglass, and Ronboy!
Erm, the video for How to Love has been banned due to some copyright issues made by Grand Nation LLC? -_-WHAT!?
It's a cute video and the lyrics are meaningful, cute and ripped body but he has a brain. Now that's who I would call a talented attractive sexbomb!

Also, google a black gay blog called DISCREET CITY they have also BLASTED Frank Ocean for his false sincerity and I applaud the brothers at DISCREET city for being honest about him.Frank Ocean is NO HERO to black gay men, the guy plays the bisexual game for record sales, for media attention it is false and insincere.
I am so fucking tired of black men saying they are bisexual! Tired of it!
As I already explained I believe Frank Ocean saying he is bisexual is due to his record label and his managers, agents ect. Being a gay black man is such a taboo still in the black community as you know.
For once, it would be nice for a black male entertainer to come out and say he is gay and not take the easy way out and say he's bisexual.
I gave my opinion about Frank Ocean and my perspective is he's a COWARD. You don't know anything about me, I am very involved in the black gay community. I have written on this blog positive things about black LGBT public figures such as Don Lemon at CNN. I applaud Don Lemon, an openly gay black man who is proud to say he's gay and he's no coward. Don Lemon isn't playing the bisexual game which Frank Ocean plays.

and just because you have a crush or want to sleep with the guys that you love to defend so much doesn't have to cloud your judgement. i saw what you said about eddie murphy and 3 other black male celebs. had the nerve to say that nobody found them hot because YOU didn't think they were hot. i didn't know you spoke for everyone on earth.

He just so yummy! I want to slap that ass at least once and those lips are so kissable. Btw I think the picture of him bending over in jockstrap is a photojob, the way the trapezius muscle is connecting to the neck/back of head looks very weird! Such a nice picture though o.o.
Saw him on cable news the other day and he came across as charming and humble---went broke making the video but it has paid off
Too bad the love interest is a straight pt who'll only break his heart. Well, maybe next song, next video.
Good interview with Steve Grand:
