Fergie: 'West Made Hip-hop Gay-friendly'

BLACK EYED PEAS star FERGIE has credited KANYE WEST with popularising the hip-hop genre by making his music "gay-friendly".
The singer insists West has always pushed the boundaries of rap with his experimental music and super-stylish dress sense.
And Fergie is adamant the Stronger hitmaker has made a hugh difference in bringing hip-hop to the gay community.
She tells MTV.com, "Kanye West really did a great thing for hip-hop and made it very mixed and open."
She also reserves some credit her Black Eyed Peas band mates, will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo, adding, "They're completely gay-friendly. Are you kidding me? Look at how they dress!"
