Andre 3000 Loves The Gays

The blog we want to be when we grow up, Arjan Writes About Music, has been pretty amazing this week with exhaustive coverage of the MTV Video Music Awards. (It's amazing what a boy can do, given enough ambition and a backstage media pass.) Arjan managed to get OutKast's Andre 3000 to go on the record against homophobia, the second major hip-hop star to denounce anti-gay violence (all props to Kanye). Let's hope it's a trend in the making; I mean, I don't expect Nas or Eminem to start advocating equality for all, but it would be nice to see a more enlightened view take hold in the industry (and in the lyrics).

Related: Former American Idol-ator Mario Vasquez (who's about to drop his debut CD) continues to evade the question of boys, girls, or both. I guess he thinks it's not obvious.
