A few weeks ago rapper Wale came under heat for canceling an appearance at a gay pride parade. Since then Wale offered the gays a free concert and released this statement:
'One thing I stand for is Hip-Hop music. And Hip Hop music knows no race, no color, no age, no gender, no sexual orientation -- none of that. So, the most important thing about it is the music, and if it makes the people feel happy, that's what we hear.”
He also commented on the controversy of having no dark skinned girls in his Pretty Girls video,
“I will say, sometimes in this business you get aligned with people that don't understand that, or don't necessarily have the same beliefs that you do. And I apologize for not having my best foot forward to understand the people I'm in business with. And I'm going to do better, as we all do.”
Very smart Wale. Love is the new movement.
