Another day, and yet another gay titan of the fashion industry with the desire to express their homophobic opinions about other gay people. Fresh off the heels of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s ham-handed statements about queer families (and the subsequent backlash), Giorgio Armani’s taking some gay men to task for not being masculine enough for his tastes.
"When homosexuality is exhibited to the extreme – to say: 'Ah, you know I'm homosexual,' – that has nothing to do with me,” he expressed in a recent interview with The Sunday Times Magazine. “A man has to be a man."
To his credit, Armani also admits to not being particularly fond of the heavily-muscular male aesthetic later on in the same interview, explaining that his vision of the ideal male form was “[S]omebody solid, who looks after his body but doesn't use his muscles too much."
