Former Lost star Michelle Rodriguez speaks out against lesbian magazine Curve for outing her. She posted this on her official forums:
“Hey guys, Long time no talk. Sorry about that I’ve bin running around once again like a chicken without a head getting this clothing line on track. I’m also working up a new hobby that will come in handy really soon when I move back home to the land of ‘The Real’, New York. I’ve bin downloading music and working with my DJ boys to see if I have what it takes to get the party jumping.
I thought it would be a good Idea to completely disconnect myself from the hollywood world while I work on the clothing line, develop my own kid film project, and Learn to DJ. I think most adults are tainted, especially in Hollywood, so to refrain from ripping my clothes off on screen, playing the typical sex feen, or girlfriend role, I prefer to write the kid project I’ve had in my head since I was 15. It’s time to write, it’s what I got into the business for. This way I can start fresh next year, as a producer. By then, ten more celebrity people should have gotten DUI’s in Hollywood and My mistakes will be long forgotten, that process has already started L.O.L.. guess I’m not so different after all. I thought I would Update you guys on what’s going on lately, I know I’ve bin quiet, for the most part anyway.
As far as rumors go of me coming out, I guess curve magazine took it upon themselves to out me on the premise of their own suspicions. Whatever, I’m not insulted, I have a big lesbian following, and for whatever reasons they show me love I’m never going to shun, disrespect or neglect anybody who shows me genuine non-psychotic Love.
But I will Say this, to put words in someone’s mouth and place people in categories affects them for sure, especially in this business. I don’t know what the intent behind the curve magazine cover was. I wasn’t informed of it, I had no Idea they were planning on using my image to sell magazines. By the way I only got kicked out of five schools not six.
Look, I guess what I’m trying to say ultimately is that, if I wanted people to know what I do with my Vagina I would have released A sex video a long time ago. Yet i haven’t done that. You know why? Because extremists can rarely be mediators, mass communicators, or chameleons for that matter. I have bin an extremist in my personal life, Yes. Yet I have never really over stepped the boundaries consciously in the public eye. I have really focused on specific types of films for that very reason, I don’t need to be limited by judgmental labels, especially in a society ruled mostly by an MTV A.D.D. mentality. See, I even labeled, It’s almost second nature to the generation Y culture, and what about the popular culture groups that buy up all the US Weekly’s, In Touch’s and Hello’s
If I were Ellen I may get away with: ‘ The I’m Gay’ level of exposure, but I’m not a comedian, I like men; ( real One’s Anyway) and I’ve only bin in this business for 7 years not 20. Years of recognition can give a person lots of leverage especially if you have many years of positive recognition under your belt. There are certain things that can close doors between a celebrity and certain audiences. Especially in a world where walls are constantly being put up by people seeking comfort and groups to belong to. There is so much out there, over-saturation of music, media, Agenda News, war, political drama, high school prom drama, image drama, religion drama, Bully drama. All this drama is caused by one thing, not understanding the true meaning of communication and the real power behind it. It’s tough to learn, I’m working on it myself, but when people come out of nowhere and put words in my mouth or call me Gay, they should really think for one second How they could truly affect my life by doing such things. You don’t know what producer, director, would be husband or future audience member may be influenced by these opinions and media content.
I want to communicate on a worldly scale, i don’t care if your a bigot, highly religious, gay, poor, rich,stupid, or intelligent, i close no door when it comes to my media work. Some people, ( I call them ‘the sheep People’), are highly susceptible to outside influences and suggestions, Especially that of recognizable media channels. These people may make up most of the worlds population. They may not want to even watch a film I produce, direct, or star in, because of Mediocre Rumors produced by insect sucubus media hounds looking for a quick buck. Who knows, I could have inspired his kid with a kids flic I produced, i could have done a female drama, that a girl would have felt empowered by, yet she didn’t go see it because her religion says to ‘steer from the queer’, or the kid didn’t see it cause highly religious Poppa doesn’t want anything to do with films made by Michelle Rodriguez that DUI, Dyke, Misfit. I am free spirited enough to understand ‘the keep it real be free’ and ‘The I can’t care about everything they think’ factor, yet I’m not stupid to the powers and influences of communication and I’ve screwed up enough to see the various repercussions of miss- communication. So All I say to both the audience and Media is to be mindful of what you say and do simply because Karma is real and you reap what you sow.”
