Let You See My Powerline...

So you all may remember this guy from a few of my sexy series. I would like to introduce you all to Powerline


                                                          Who is Powerline?

POWERLINE IS A HIGH ENERGY ENTERTAINER COMPOSED OF JAW DROPPING ELECTRIFYING STUNTS,TRICKS,AND SPLITS THAT WILL LEAVE YOUR MOUTH WATERING AND TRICKLING FOR MORE

What made you choose the name Powerline?
THE NAME POWERLINE DERIVES FROM 2 DIFFERENT PLACES---
1.TEVIN CAMPBELL;TEVIN CAMPBELL WHICH I LOVE IN THE UTTMOST OF WAYS PLAYS THIS CHARACTER NAMED POWERLINE IN ONE OF MY FAVORITE CHILDHOOD MOVIES"A GOOFY MOVIE".IN THIS MOVIE "POWERLINE"IS THE TOP ENTERTAINER,WHAT EVERYONE CRAVES FOR AND PASSES OUT OVER,IN WHICH ON THE OCCASION OF PERFORMING I LOOK TO ACHIEVE THE SAME THING AND I DO SEE MYSELF AS SOMEWHAT OF A CHARACTER LOL
2.THE NAME "POWERLINE" REPRESENTS ME AS WELL
BECAUSE OF MY SECRET WEAPON WHICH LIES BENEATH THE WAIST,WHICH IS MY 12"VOLTS"OF LIGHTNING;)

What was your childhood like?
AWW MAN MY CHILDHOOD WAS A ROLLER COASTER RIDE---I WENT FROM MANY DIFFERENT EXTREMES,SUCH AS BEING THE EPITOME OF A GOLDEN CHILD;TAKEN OUT OF THE GHETTO GIVEN A 2ND CHANCE,BEING SILVER SPOONED,LEARNING TO BE REFINED AND SPEAKING WITH DICTION AND CLARITY,JUST THINGS OF THAT SORT.HOWEVER THAT WASNT ENOUGH FOR ME...I WANTED TO KNOW WHAT MY REAL FAMILY WOULD TREAT ME LIKE,IF I WOULD BE EMBRACED THE SAME,YOU KNOW LOVED AND NORTURED...BOY WAS IN FOR A RUDE AWAKENING---I WAS A VICTIM OF RAPE LIKE MANY AND DIDNT EVEN REALIZE WHAT WAS GOING ON...I WAS A YOUNG PRE TEEN WHO WAS LOVING AND KIND AND THOUGHT IF YOU LOVED YOU WERE TO BE LOVED BACK...SO I KEPT QUIET IN THE SENSE THAT I KNEW IT WASN'T "NORMAL"PERSAY BUT IN THE ESSENCE OF KEEPING THE ONE,WHICH WAS A FAMILY MEMBER,PRAYING ON ME, HAPPY.

BEYOND HAVING MY INNOCENCE STRIPPED I WAS BEAT MY FIRST TIME BY MY FATHER,CHOKED AND SLAMMED INTO A WALL FOR NOT EATING MY VEGGIES AND LYING ABOUT IT,THIS ALL MADE ME VERY BITTER AND WEAK TO ONE POINT BECAUSE I FELT EVERYONE AROUND ME WAS OUT TO GET ME---THUS I BECAME GUARDED AND SHELTERED,BECOMING JUST ANOTHER PRODIGY TO THE GHETTO I NOW CALLED HOME.I BECAME REALLY RESERVED AND CLICHE' TO BLEND IN WITH OTHERS AROUND ME...I GREW TIRED OF BEING PICKED ON BECAUSE OF MY SHORT COMINGS AND BEING GREEN TO HARSH REALITIES;SO I BECAME A CLASS CLOWN TO DRAW ATTENTION AWAY FROM ME ON A PERSONAL STAND POINT.

I STRUGGLED TO KEEP UP WITH THIS FACADE I'D CREATED BECAUSE I WAS NOW A TEENAGER BATTLING HORMONES IN WHICH THE FIRE WITHIN ME LIT TOWARDS BEING WITH A MAN RATHER THAN A WOMAN.


I TOOK TO THE NET WHERE I FOUND A PIN PAL IN GEORGIA THAT WAS MY AGE,WE EXPRESSED INTERESTS IN ONE ANOTHER IN WHICH A SUPER STRONG MUTUAL CONNECTION SPAWNED...HE WAS MY OUTLET,HE WAS LIKE ME,HE WAS WHERE I COULD BE FREE,HE WAS...MY LONG-DISTANCE BOYFRIEND

THIS ALL CAME TO AN END WHEN MY FATHER WHOM I NOW LIVED WITH HACKED ONE OF THE SOCIAL WEBSITES I USED AS WELL AS MY EMAIL AND EXPOSED ME TO MY MOM...I WAS NO LONGER CLOSETED TO MY PARENTS...I WAS "GAY"TO THEM,I WAS FORCED TO EXPOSE WHO IT WAS AND WAS CALLED A LIAR BY MY OWN MOTHER WHEN I DID SO...
I EVENTUALLY RAN AWAY BACK TO MY MOTHERS HOUSE,TIRED AND WEAKENED FROM THE ONSLAUGHT OF ABUSE MY FATHER GAVE...I SPENT THAT COLD SUMMER BECKONING TO GOD FOR AN ANSWER,LIKE WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW THAT MY PARENTS KNOW,OR WHO COULD I TRUST IF MY OWN FAMILY WOULD BETRAY OR HURT ME?

I FINALLY STUMBLED UPON A GROUP OF GAYS IN WHICH I WAS SNEAKING TO BE FRIENDS WITH,GOING OUT TO PARTIES AND MEETING AT THE POOL WHEN NO ONE ELSE WAS THERE---WORD GOT AROUND MY COMPLEX EVENTUALLY AND I WAS CONFRONTED BY MY MOM.I TOLD HER THEY WERE PEOPLE TOO AND THAT I DIDN'T SEE THE PROBLEM,AND THAT ID FINALLY FELT ACCEPTED...I LEFT TO GO HANG WITH THEM,TO RETURN HOME WITH MY THINGS AND BICYCLE ON THE PORCH,I WAS PUT OUT AND WELCOMED INTO THE GAY WORLD WITH OPEN ARMS AND IVE BEEN VERY MUCH SO A VAGABOND EVER SINCE...

What is your coming out story?


WELL AFTER I'D BEEN WELCOMED INTO THE HOME OF A FRIEND BUT STILL VERY MUCH SO A STRANGER,I NO LONGER HAD WORRIES---SO I SAID F#$% IT!I THREW OUT THE SIZE 34 BAGGY JEANS AND START CUTTING UP THE SIZE 28 JEANS AND WAVED BYE BYE TO THE CLOSET,I HAD A NEW FAMILY AND A GOD MOTHER WITH CARED FIR ME SO IF ANYONE ASKED...I LIKED MEN:)

How did people react to you coming out?
IT WAS A COMPLETE SHOCK TO MANY BECAUSE WHAT MANY DON'T KNOW IS I CARRIED A VERY HOOD LAYED BACK DEMEANOR...WORE BIG GOLD CHAINS,GOLDS WITH PRINCESD CUTS IN MY MOUTH,AND DREADS,SO IT WAS A DEFINITE SHOCK LOL

If you could, do you think you would change the way people found out you were gay?


AT TIMES I WOULD SAY I WOULD BUT YOU KNOW PRESSURE MAKES A DIAMOND AND I AM SURELY SHINING NOW IN MY LIFE MORE THAN I EVER HAVE AND I AM TRULY HAPPY!!!SO MY ANSWER IS NO.

What made you explore the world of exotic dancing?

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE MOVIE SUCKER PUNCH???THAT IS VERY MUCH SO ME WHEN I HIT THE STAGE;I CLOSE MY EYES AND I GO OFF INTO MY OWN WORLD,I DANCE TO MY OWN BEAT IN A SENSE BECAUSE BEING DIFFERENT MEANS STANDING OUT AND TO STAND OUT YOU'LL NEVER SELL YOURSELF SHORT OR BLEND.ALOT IN MY LIFE HAS CHANGED THROUGHOUT MY YEARS BUT ONE THING IS FOR SURRRE I LOOOOOOVE TO ENTERTAIN AND GIVE A EXCELLENT SHOW!
 

Who would you say were some of your biggest influences and why?

I'M ANCIENT BEYOND ANYONES BELIEF,LIKE I'M INFLUENCED BY WHAT PEOPLE MAY CALL HARPEES OR SIRENS,MAINLY SIRENS IN PARTICULAR---SIRENS USED THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL VOICES,BODIES AND LOOKS TO INTRIGUE AND SEDUCE PASSING SAILORS TO FALL SULLEB TO THEM AND CRASH INTO THEY'RE ISLE IN WHICH THEY PRAYED ON...NOW I'M NOT WICKED LIKE THAT LOL BUT THE CONCEPT OF THE LURE DRIVES ME

A FEW MODERN INFLUENCES INCLUDE,JANET JACKSON,TEVIN CAMPBELL AS I MENTION
ED
EARLIER,AMBER,GRACE JONES,LISA FISCHER,TONI BRAXTON,PAT BENATAR,CYNDI LAUPER,PRINCE,AND MICHEAL JACKSON OF COURSE!

What made you move your dancing career from Florida to California?
WELL I HAVEN'T OFFICIALLY DANCED IN CALI LIKE I'VE WANTED TO,AND ACTUALLY I'D SAY IT IS MORE OF A LEISURE ACTIVITY FOR ME...IT ISN'T MY MAIN CAREER BUT I DO HOLD A DEEP PASSION FOR IT!

I read that Roman is a father figure to you, How did you two come in contact?
WOOOOW...ROMAN!THE MUFUSA TO MY SIMBA!UM LIKE HE WAS LITERALLY LIKE AN ANGEL FOR ME...I WAS GOING THROUGH ALOT STILL VERY MUCH SO FINDING MYSELF IN WHICH WE MET DOING A GIG WE WERE BOTH BOOKED FOR TOGETHER,HE WAS GOOFY,CHARMING AND DARING WHICH SPARKED OUR FRIENDSHIP,AND HE WAS ACTUALLY VERY PROTECTIVE OF ME FROM DAY 1.WE WENT TO LUNCH THE NEXT DAY AND I OPENED MY HEART TO HIM AND HE TOLD ME"YOU'RE NOT GOING BACK TO FLORIDA...I'M YOUR DADDY NOW AND I'M GOING TAKE CARE OF YOU"AND I TEARED UP AND HUGGED HIM AT THE DINER WE WERE AT AND WE'VE BEEN PARTNERS IN CRIME EVERY SINCE!

Do you feel like across the nation it is hard to get your name out there as an exotic dancer?



NOT NECESSARILY HARD HOWEVER ALOT OF PEOPLE GET THE ART IF EXOTIC DANCING MISCONSTRUED WITH STRIPPING WHICH IS TACTLESS AND HAS NO CREATIVITY,MOTIVATION,OR PARTICULAR DRIVE ABOUT IT...I MEAN NO OFF

So we have talked about before you want to make a transition in to acting. What sparked you interest?

JUST ALWAYS VYING TO BE THAT CENTER OF ATTENTION AND BEING THAT BEACON OF LIGHT FOR THOSE WHO HAVE GIVEN UP OR ARE GOING WHAT I'VE BEEN THROUGH

How was it when you got the role in the Superbowl Pepsi commercial?
LIKE OMG---PEPSI WAS AN HONOR ALONE,BUT TO KNOW I'D BEEN CHOSEN TO BE ON THE FRONT LINE JUST INCHES AWAY FROM MELANIE
AMARO,THE X FACTOR WINNER IS AN UNEXPLAINABLE FEELING,BUT NOT EVEN BECAUSE OF HER FAME BUT BECAUSE SHE WAS SUCH A HUMBLE,INSIGHTFUL,WITTY YET GOOFY SOUL,WHICH WE NATURALLY HAD IN COMMON AND WERE DRAWN TO EACH OTHER...THAT WAS CLOUD 9---I HIT CLOUD 10 WHEN MELANIE INTRODUCED ME TO THE KING,ELTON JOHN!!!NOT ONLY DID I MEET HIM WE WALKED AND TALKED HAND AND HAND AND UPON INTRODUCING MYSELF HE CUTS ME OFF AND SAYS"LISTEN,I'VE BEEN WATCHING YOU ALL DAY,DANCING AND SMILING,YOU'RE A BEAUTIFUL PERSON AND YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL SPIRIT DON'T CHANGE THAT FOR ANYONE"AND HE KISSES MY CHEEK THEN MY HAND AND WALKS AWAY...

Do you feel as though doing that commercial will open many other doors for you?
I DO!I'M ACTUALLY SIGNED WITH PEPSI,I WAS EXTENDED A CONTRACT FOLLOWING THE PREMIER OF THE COMMERCIAL!IT HAS THOUGH!I HAVE BEEN FEATURED IN MANY DAYTIME POPULAR SHOWS ACTING IN THE FOREGROUND,CAN'T GO INTO DETAILS NOW BUT IT IS TBA;)

Do you feel like you have any regrets at this stage in your life and career?
I'LL PUT IT LIKE THIS,WE'VE ALL MADE NUMEROUS MISTAKES IN OUR LIFE,AND SKELETONS IN OUR CLOSET,BUT IT IS THOSE MISTAKES AND SKELETONS THAT PIECE US TOGETHER TO GROW AND BE A BETTER PERSON---I HAVE NO REGRETS

Is there anything you feel you want to change in the LGBT Culture?
YES.THE LGBT IS ONE OF THE MOST EXPERIENTIAL GROUPS OF PEOPLE WITH TALENT,WHETHER IT BE MAKE-UP,HAIR STYLING,MODELING,ENTERTAINING ETC. I WANT
THE LGBT COMMUNITY TO BE ABLE TO STAND UP AGAINST STATISTICS AND STEP OUT OF THE METAPHORIC CLOSETS SUCH AS THE BALLROOM SCENE AND WALK THAT WALK IN REAL LIFE,THERE'S SO MUCH TALENT THAT LIES WITHIN THE LGBT COMMUNITY ESPECIALLY BUT THE WORLD WILL NEVER KNOW BECAUSE WE PEOPLE ARE AFRAID,OR TOO STUBBORN TO CHANGE AND OVERCOME YET ANOTHER GHETTO/CLOSET WE'VE CREATED TO FEEL IMPORTANT---THE LGBT COMMUNITY IS IN THE DARK IN A SENSE---AS THE FAMOUS MOVIE QUOTE SAYS,"STEP INTO THE LIGHT CAROLINE"


Do you have any last words for your fans and my viewers

YES---NO STORY IS EVER SET IN STONE...WITH STRONG BELIEF AND FAITH,YOU CAN ERASE THE WATERMARKS OF YOUR PAST AND RE-WRITE YOUR STORY THE WAY YOU LIKE AND YOU CAN PAVE WAY FOR YOUR OWN FUTURE

    2. Hi, I was wondering if this commenter "Thee Kelio" whom replied to the first comment is that dancer Powerline from this page, the name doesn't say powerline but he said that he was glad he could be an inspiration. Let me know if this is you Powerline.
