While we had a minute with the rapper, we talked to him about his recent appearance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, where he helped introduce Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. 

Rocky, who was alongside openly gay NBA player Jason Collins, looked like he’d rather be anywhere but next to him while introducing the performance of a song speaking on gay rights.

“I’m mad that my facial expressions was like that because I’m not homophobic at all, and that whole thing just came off real homophobic,” said Rocky. “I didn’t really notice it until I got home and saw it. I apologize to Jason for that, because people was laughing and shit, and you know… I really don’t think that’s funny. I saw they were making all the memes and pictures and making fun of him. There’s people out there that think I was doing that to be funny, and truthfully I got gay people in my family. I don’t give a fuck if you gay or you not, I just found it odd that MTV wanted to stand me next to this nigga when they are talking about gay people, that’s all. You know what I’m saying?”
