Rapper A$AP Rocky has finally explained what happened onstage during the MTV VMA ceremony in Brooklyn last August 25th. When NBA star Jason Collins introduced Macklemore's song 'Same Love' and made a brief speech about gay rights, Rocky seemed visibly uncomfortable and laughed, pointing the finger at Collins whenever he said the word "homosexuality", which sparked rumours that the rapper was homophobic.

"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," says Rocky, adding that he "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."

A$AP Rocky also stated that he was not very fond that MTV paired him with Collins in that specific segment where the NBA player would be addressing the topic: "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?"

A$AP Rocky and his A$AP Mob will debut a collaborative LP (currently untitled) on October 15th.
