Jamaica Star – From Homosexual To Metrosexual

The other day I was doing some channel surfing and stumbled across one of our local cable stations. On it they had a popular deejay getting a full scale beauty treatment at a salon. There he was, having his 'tall' hair shampooed, conditioned and blown out and getting a manicure and pedicure!
While getting his treatments he explained that they were all necessary for maintaining the image.
I thought to myself and what would that image be? That of a flaming gay!
Can somebody please tell me, what is happening to our men?
