Important PSA from Rocky…♡

     To all my fans in the LGBT community, I love and appreciate your support thus far!  I understand that certain lyrics in my latest release, Pop Killer, may have been interpreted as transphobic and I sincerely apologize if I have offended you in any way.  I value your presence in support of my movement and promise to not only rectify the lyric(s) in future performances and appearances, but be more sensitive when creating music that should be inclusive of all.  Thank you again for your continued support and hopefully we can continue to make progressive and powerful music together. Love, r o c k y
