VMA 2013: Performance: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - "Same Love (w/ Mary Lambert & Jennifer Hudson)


Macklemore & Ryan Lewis acceptance speech for 'Same Love' (Best Video With A Social Message)

On the flipside, A$ap Rocky's standing so far away from co-presenter Jason Collins, show's acceptance of homosexuality still has a way to go.

I'm not blaming A$AP, he's a young guy and Hip Hop (like Country and some corners  of Rock) is all about machismo and being accepting of homosexuality has moved slowly in the genre.

Hopefully through life experiences and meeting people who are gay, A$AP Rocky and others won't be more accepting and less standoff-ish when it comes to homosexuality; but Talib Kweli said, you  probably need to gay rapper to better than everyone else to push  Hip Hop forward.
