Eminem has released a new album that, yet again, contains violently homophobic lyrics, and his fans are citing your 2001 collaboration as proof that he can't be homophobic and therefore bears no responsibility for spreading hateful rhetoric. Your words and actions became Eminem's pass.
When I thought hip hop was becoming a more accepting place with Frank Ocean coming out as bi-sexual, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis releasing 'Same Love' and both becoming commercially successful. 'Rap God' was just a gunshot taking us back in time making us realise that we've got a long way to go.
I wrote to Sia on Twitter and expressed my disappointment. I wasn't expecting a reply, but, to my surprise, she responded and thoughtfully listened, and we proceeded to have a lengthy (by Twitter standards) conversation.
