Katy Perry’s collaboration with Migos irritated her LGBT fans


Only a few weeks after expressing her own sexual fluidity (‘I kissed a girl and to tell the truth I did more than that,’ Perry said then) and receiving a prestigious LGBT award the popstar unites with a rap band known for its radical homophobic remarks to record a common song. Last month, Migos members said that rapper Makonnen coming out was proof “the world is f***ed up,” adding: “This world is not right”. These remarks predictably sparked a backlash. Migos then issued a clarification and an apology, saying: “We always been about being original and staying true. We are all fan’s of Makonnen’s music and we wish he didn’t feel like he ever had to hide himself. We feel the world is fucked up that people feel like they have to hide and we’re asked to comment on someone’s sexuality. We have no problem with anyone’s sexual preference. We love all people, gay or straight, and we apologise if we offended anyone.” But the apology does not seem to be accepted, the band members are still branded homophobic and Katy’s fans think it is ‘disgusting’ that their idol works with them. “Migos are homophobic and just shitty in general why did Katy make a song with them,” one fan tweets, “I was looking forward to KP4 but you have deeply disappointed me @katyperry. How dare you collab with homophobic Migos who bashed Gaga?!” another added.
