“Every time I did that scene it was like coming out again and again and again,” Jussie explains referring to the scene in Empire when he changed Lucious’ lyrics to ‘when a man loves a man’. “Right before shooting that scene I felt very nervous, as if somehow things would never be the same–and they weren’t, yet they were. It’s the same feeling that I had when I did Ellen. It was a little bit scary, but it was freeing. The fan response that I’ve gotten from that scene has been next level to me.”
