Anyways dancing has become something that guys rather not do, unless they do it as a career. I see why dancing is considered a sign of weakness(perceived as homosexuality by immature people), because a lot of male dancers aren't really manly.
No clue when it happened that made guys dancing uncool, but Stanky Leg's and Crank Dat's became cool.
Not surprising, Usher was never as good of a dancer or performer during his Pop years as he was made to be by the media. That 1017 or 8121 album(too lazy to google) was absolute trash, the Neptunes sound did not mesh. JT's debut album was made of tracks turned down by MJ.
Huh? I recall Jermaine Dupri, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis' presence a lot more than the Neptunes on that album. I actually did not like the sound of that album, it was very generic cookie-cutter R&B IMO (except for a couple of songs) compared to other albums but it was still very pop material.
Maybe It's an urban thing? I lived next to Boston my whole life and it definitely was a diverse, urban community. We had our own crew and everything. White, Asian, Hispanic, Black, you name it. We never got made fun of at all.
