The rapper Game decided to open up on the topic of gay people in the biz. It turns out he LOVES gay people. He says they run the world (just like that Beyonce song!), and that's great, since this is a free country and everything.

They should be out and proud, he says, that way they're not spreading AIDS.

"Game don't have a problem with gay people, Game has a problem with people that are pretending not to be gay that are gay," he said, in response to a question about closeted rappers from a reporter at VLAD TV.

He went on in a video posted over at TMZ:

The #1 issue with that is you could be fooling somebody and you could give them AIDS and they can die. That in-the-closet shit is real scary. We gotta get into the seriousness of it, it's just not fair to other people. That shit spreads because that girl that you might be fooling might leave you and go find another dude who ain't gay and give him the disease and he goes and cheats on her, so it's an ongoing thing. So it ain't cool to be in the closet. So if you're gay, just say you gay. Be gay and be proud.

That's right, Game thinks you should be proud of being gay, even though he's pretty sure it means you have AIDS.
