The Aerosmith frontman expressed:
"I apologize if it was taken wrong, Nicki, but I am the farthest from [being a racist]. I am the last thing on this planet as far as being a racist. I don't know where she got that out of me saying I'm not sure how she would've judged Bob Dylan. Maybe I spoke out of turn, but a racist I'm not, Nicki."
And yes, Steven may have totally pre-judged Nicki's assesment skillz, but why did the Freedom rapper SO quickly jump to the conclusion that Steven was racist?!
That is SUCH a nasty thing to accuse someone of, and the fact that SHE immediately assumed such a thing is rather judgmental in its own right!
Ah well, hopefully after Steven's apology all is right between the two music makers!
