"That's My Best Friend" rapper Tokyo Vanity stirred up a little bit of controversy recently after going on Instagram Live and sharing her thoughts about the LGBTQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer or questioning, intersex, asexual or allies) community.

As her followers began to question if the rapper had a problem with gay people, Vanity explained that she had no issues with the gay and transgender community. "It's nothing wrong with being gay. Gay is what you choose to do, it's the way you was born. It's in you," Vanity says. "But, at the end of the day, to pursue it and to act on it is your decision.
