Kid Rock: All About Homophobic Slurs!

by at .

Kid Rock doesn't have a major problem with gay marriage.

Or with using the word "gay" as an insult.

In a wide-ranging interview with The Guardian, the artist opens up about a number of topics (he doesn’t use “FaceTweet or whatever,” he didn’t vote for Barack Obama, he’s “loaded” with money)... but it's his view on a certain homophobic slur that has people talking.

"As an ordained minister I don’t look forward to marrying gay people, but I’m not opposed to it," Kid Rock says, adding that he leads to the middle on social issues.

The singer proceeds to comment on the genre he perfected back in the 1990s.

"Rap-rock was what people wanted at the time, and they still love those songs at shows. But it turned into a lot of bullsh-t and it turned out to be pretty gay."

Aware that this term might get folks fired up (remember when Madonna referred to kale as gay?), Kid Rock made it clear he doesn't really care what critics have to say on the issue.

"If someone says you can’t say gay like that you, tell them to go f-ck themselves," he tells the publication. "You’re not going to get anything politically correct out of me."
