i really hope he doesn’t get violent backlash the rap industry can be so homophobic

It almost seems like a trend with all these celebrities coming out. I honestly don’t care what sex you prefer, it’s your life, not mine.

@kathryn:
It’s already started. His sexuality shouldn’t determine whether you listen to his music or not.

Did any of these dumb ass celebrities tweet about the bravery of the men and women fighting overseas on July 4th? Didn’t think so. So now coming out as bisexual is “bravery”.
