Kanye West has admitted he used to being scared of ‘gays’. In an interview with MTV he said:
“I used to be scared to talk to a gay person. In hip-hop, there’s people – and let’s not even say scared like homophobic – but they’re scared of the way people gonna look at them.”
Mr West also said a previous statement that gay men had inspired him how to dress had been misinterpreted.”There’s a lot of gay people who don’t dress good at all. There’s a lot of gay people that I dress way better than,” the multi-award winning producer said.
Because of his interest in fasion, he has been subject to rumours about his own sexuality:
“Stereotypically gay people got such good [style] … they were smart enough to take a fresh-ass logo like the rainbow and say that it’s gonna be theirs,” he said.
