In a new interview, Karamo Brown,
Netflix's Queer Eye culture guy, says he's planning a wedding
to rival Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's recent big day.
The 38-year-old Brown is currently
promoting his upcoming memoir, My Story of Embracing Purpose,
Healing and Hope, which arrives March 5.
Brown said that his book is an effort
to use his life experience to help others.
“[I've written this book now] because
I’ve grown a lot,” Brown
told the Washington
Blade. “I’ve had a lot of life experience. I’ve also
been trained as a psychotherapist and social worker, I know how to
articulate what I’m feeling in a way that’s digestible and in a
way the people can relate to it and apply to their own lives. This is
just me telling infinite stories of how I’ve grown so that people
can do the same with clear insights. I’m not saying my journey of
growth is done but I’ve had enough life experience that I’m like,
'Let’s share this with someone else.' I’m very transparent in the
Brown also said that wedding planning
was not going well for his boyfriend, director Ian Jordan.
“Wedding planning is going great for
me,” Brown said. “My fiancé not so much, because he has full
anxiety of it. This is a special day. I was the little boy who
dreamed of my wedding and I’m not ashamed to say that. I want
little boys to know around the world they can dream of their wedding
“Marriage is not for everyone, but it
is for me. I have been planning an extravaganza. When I was at a
Vanity Fair party, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra were there
and I so badly wanted to go up [to] them and be like, 'I’m rivaling
your wedding.' Of course, they have more money than me so theirs is
always going to be more fabulous. But in my mind, I’m coming close
to what they created. It’s giving my partner anxiety but luckily,
it’s going well for me,” he said.
