    I guess this is the whole idea of twisting jamal’s sexuality….so we are talking about it, so empire remains popular, so the show remains on air and keeps selling!

      LOL. It’s twisted but there’s truth in what you’re saying.

    Well,that commenter has some truth in what he/she is saying. I know a lot of us here know that “sexuality is fluid” (not in my case though,but everybody must not be like me) and a kiss doesn’t mean anything, but the ignorant folks out there who truly believe that if u lock a gay man in a room with 3 hot chicks for a week, he’ll turn straight forever (or if u give a lesbian a “good dicking”,she’ll detest pussy forever), might just see it as a validation of their school of thought.

    OAN: this morning is sooooo coooold! I’m actually shivering… Brrrrrrrr

    I totally agree with what the commenter said. The last thing we need on tv is portraying homosexuality as some kind of choice. But hey, they need the ratings and I guess gay characters are expendable for this kind of experiment.

      It’s off-putting that Lee Daniels would pull this kind of stunt. If the storyline carries on like this, with Jamal getting fresh with Alicia Keys’ character, I’ll be officially over Empire.

        Lol, personally, I didn’t see the kiss as anything. It was just a kiss. But my concern is the message it was passing across. He wants to keep the ratings up, so I guess that’s why he pulled it. Empire has higher ratings than Game of Thrones you know.

          That’s cuz GOT hasn’t related the sixth season yet, I’ll so dump empire (not like I’ve gone beyond season 2 episode 3 of Empire) There’s just something about the uncertainty of GOT that keeps everyone glued. No permanent protagonist or antagonist. That’s suspense, not chicken flick empire. *and I’ve looked for trouble*?

          Well the last episode of Empire fell below Big Bang theory’s episode REPEAT and also fell below the season 5 Game of thrones finale. The surprising thing was that the last episode was actually good but I guess the Jamal kissing Alicia is probably a turn off but it could just be their way of proving that Jamal is gay and gay and the kiss meant nothing in the coming episodes. So everyone chill.

          At the moment? I don’t think so @Max. Sure Empire debuted this season with a bang. But it’s being on a slow decline.

            The ratings shocked me myself. Even stellar shows like HTGAWM is still below it in ratings.

              You can’t compare ratings of a broadcast network TV show to a cable one.
              Empire airs on Fox – broadcast tv
              game of thrones on HBO – cable

              In essence more people have access to broadcast tv that to premium cable as such comparing the ratings of a show on HBO to one of Fox is moot.

    Jamal is meant to be a gay character! That’s the sole reason the show is endearing. Tuning to a series where I can identify with a character is all that’s been keeping me to this Empire haze and now he kisses Alicia?!
    Well, since they are all about twisting people’s characters, why don’t they twist Hakeem’s (he seriously needs the twisting), by the way he has strong gay tendencies if you ask me.

    around here, i don’t think we need a tv show to sell the idea that sexuality is fluid and we can easily switch to women when you want to. mgm’s are already doing that for us.

    Well people will be mad but things have really picked up and ratings has gone high based on episode 8 and 9…i really loved Vivica’s boogie act especially the part were her junkie sister threw up on her shoes lmao it was like the universe was trying to punish her for being so stuck up and boogie,acting like she wasnt raised in the hood.

    I suppose it’s meant to make him a bit more “likeable”, more acceptable to the homophobic blacks?.

    I don’t get the overreaction though. Annalise was heterosexual in HTGAWM season 1, suddenly she was kissing a woman in season 2. I didn’t see any “outrage” from gay people then.

    So, it’s one way, but not the other way around?
