If Kanye says so...

I guess we can all chill about rap music lyrics.

And years from now, the phrase "That's so Kanye" will mean "Diplomatic gay-friendly closeted black man who comes out as gay at the age of 65".

I'm not sure that Kanye is gay per se but I get the sense that he's maybe bi ... but that admitting that publicly would be more trouble than it's worth.

In any event, he's hot! ... and I wouldn't kick him out of my bedroom even at age 65.

(In theory. In reality, I'll probably be dead by then.)

It always bugs me that everyone says Kanye West is gay. Why isn't it okay for him to be gay friendly or *gasp* supportive while still being straight?

Gay friendly is fine, but can he generalize and stereotype a little more maybe?
"But where I would talk to a gay person, the conversation would be mostly around art or design, it'd be really dope...where it's on a higher level than the average commercial design stuff, it's gay people that do that."
Does he consult with "dope" gays about law, politics, business, or [gasp!] hip-hop?

Yes, Bil, it's OK for him to be gay friendly or supportive, and it is also OK that I woke up today in bed with David Beckham and Brad Pitt.

I like Kanye's music, and I don't care if you all think he's gay!

Oh, wait, that didn't come out right....
