Earvin “Magic” Johnson described himself as "the blessing and the curse of HIV" in an interview with Anderson Cooper and also opened up about his gay son who came out publicly a few months ago.

Then I'm the curse because…people now say, oh well, HIV is nothing because if I get it I can be like Magic.
