This guy I know is dating a black girl and now he's listening to all black musicians. Not at all the kind of music he listened to prior. Is he being a little puppy clinging to her? I always kind of saw him that way, like dying to impress and please

I mean some people are like that, but thats only if you're sure he wasn't like that before.
I listen to a lot of white musicians and I always have. If someone saw me with a white guy and assumed it was because of that, they would be very very incorrect.
How is it phony? I mean, I don't know this person well or at all, so I can't say. But if your significant other introduced you to something, they play it all the time around you, you pick it up and start listening on your own, etc... I don't see that as phony if you really like it. You just discovered something you like that you didn't know you would like as much before. Now, if you don't really like it and you're just putting yourself through torture just to make someone like you more or to make them happy - thats fake.
I like some foreign music. If I dated someone from one of my cultures of interest, and we listened to a lot of music from his/her culture, and I enjoyed it and listened to more of it, I wouldn't think I was being "phony", even if it seemed funny to other people.
Also, you're assuming his gf listens to the same music. I listen to black artists as well, but "black music" spans genres, and I also listen to a lot of white artists, as I said. If I'm dating a white guy, who mostly listens to black artists, he isn't getting that from me.3
