Rapper T-Pain Gives Colorful Interview Defending Gays & Slamming Homophobes, Defends His Gay Assistant [Strong Language]

In a recent interview with Vlad TV, rapper T-Pain called homophobia “terrible” and “weird,” and said he doesn’t “fuck with” people who shun gays.

T-Pain spoke about people’s reaction to his gay assistant:

People don’t fuck with me because he’s around me. People feel like, ‘Oh shit, I wanna go say something to Pain but that gay dude is right there,’ and it’s like, he ain’t lookin’ for you, nigga! Nigga, if he was looking for you…let me tell you about these gay niggas, boy. These gay niggas’ll get on you. These gay niggas bold. If they want you, they gonna tell you before you even know they in there. They gon’ get you for real.

He added:

You ain’t even got bitches. Why you think this gay dude is gonna like you? Bitches don’t even like you! That’s stupid, bruh!…Even if they did like you, it’s gonna be bottoms, so you would be the one fucking the motherfucker. You ain’t gonna be the bottom. Ain’t nobody gonna get behind you, ‘Hey big boy.’ No, they don’t do that shit. That’s not how that works. Unless you’re in prison.

T-Pain also claimed that he knew of certain rappers who refused to work with Frank Ocean because of Ocean’s sexuality.

“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 n***as 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.”

Back in April, T-Pain had a few words for homophobes on Twitter:

Gawker points out the interview wasn’t perfect but at least T-Pain pointed out “homophobia for the absurdity that it is.”:

This interview is messy and imperfect. T-Pain calls women “bitches.” At one point he says, “I don’t fuck with nobody who cut people off because how they choose to live they life,” and then, “It’s in his fuckin’ genes man, it’s not a fuckin’ choice.” He says Frank Ocean is having a hard time getting into the studio with Jay Z after coming out, but Frank was featured on Jay’s 2013 album Magna Carta…Holy Grail’s “Oceans.”
