Staff Writeroutspoken about her frustrations with homophobia, saying it “comes from ignorance and homophobes not being around enough gay people.” Azalea even says that men in her genre “have this notion that a gay man is going to come and make them gay or try to have sex with them, and I always think that’s so weird.” But even if the majority of the hip hop genre still holds on to homophobic views, Azalea believes it won’t be long before a gay rapper breaks into the mainstream. The rapper has even been faced with the question of whether or not she is gay herself. She wants to set the record straight: she’s not a “fake lesbian.” On the subject of her own sexuality, Azalea says, “I will do songs and I'll talk about women… I know I talk about women a lot, and I think women are beautiful and I like talking about them, but I didn't want people to misconstrue that… I'm not gay. I love gay people, but I'm straight.”
