Watch: T-Pain Talks Hip-Hop Homophobia
T-Pain hasn’t exactly been shy about his disapproval with homophobia. In a recent interview with VLADTV, the singer talked Frank Ocean, Macklemore’s “Same Love” single, and general homophobia in the hip-hop industry. “I think the radio is getting more gay-friendly,” he said. “I don’t think urban music is getting more gay-friendly because if that was the case, Frank Ocean would be on a lot more songs. I know niggas that will not do a song with Frank Ocean just because he gay, but they need him on the fucking song and that’s so terrible to me, man” SEE ALSO: New Music: T-Pain Feat. AKon And 2Face ‘If I Got It’ Pain also talked his gay assistant, stating that people have strayed away from him because of his assistant’s sexual preference. Last year, the singer blasted “homophobic idiots” on Twitter for looking thinking “that guy wants my butt.”
Attention all homophobic idiots: if you’re not attractive to straight women, you’re probably not attractive to gay men. You can unclench now
