Tyler, the Creator Defends Gay Slurs In Rap Music

(Radio.com) For his appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show last night (Nov. 7), Tyler, the Creator put his feet up on the couch and got comfortable, giving his thoughts the other F-word and his generation.

"We live in a society where a lot of people are followers and can't make their said opinions," Tyler told the host. "Like I have a friend who's going to college for stuff their parents want them to go for and they're not even happy or anything, but they're just trying to please them. In the long run, I mean, what's going to be there? Your parents die and you're just stuck there and like paying debt for something that you didn't even want to learn in the first place so I just try and tell people to think for themselves and they'll be way happier in the long run."

These wise words earned him a round of applause, as did his reasoning for why he doesn't drink, smoke or do Molly: "Some things aren't for everyone."

He also gave his opinion on rappers (*cough* Eminem *cough*) using the word faggot, saying it's someone's choice to find the word offensive. "That's just a word, you can take the power out of that word," Tyler said. "The way that I see things, you choose to be offended."
