50 Cent Now Supports Same Sex Couples

50 Cent has come under fire of many in the past for making homophobic comments on the internet, but he has taken a new stance on the issue.

The rapper is now standing behind new artist Frank Ocean, who revealed just a few weeks ago that his first relationship was with a man.

50 Cent told MTV UK, “Anyone that has an issue with Frank Ocean is an idiot. I think Frank Ocean is a talented artist, I think he’s created material that made me know his name, that impressed me … The more successful that project is now, it’s going to leave people in the position where they can actually say: ‘Look, I’m gay.'”

He added, “You can call it brave or you can call it marketing, because it was intentional; it wasn’t an accident.”

50 admitted that his change of heart came after President Obama threw his support behind same sex marriage. He adds,  “If the president is [endorsing] that, then who am I to go the other way?” he explained.  (We guess we know who he is voting for in November.)

50 Cent once told Playboy back in 2004, “I ain’t into faggots. I don’t like gay people around me, because I’m not comfortable with what their thoughts are. I’m not prejudiced. I just don’t go with gay people and kick it … But women who like women, that’s cool.”  — Not exactly a very popular statement with A LOT of people.

Good to see him coming around, but it shouldn’t be because the President did.  It should be because it’s the right thing to do!
