Asher Roth

Rap newcomer Asher Roth, known for having a good time and getting all the girls at the frat parties (according to his music) has recently been the talk of web as rumors have surfaced regarding his sexuality. It has been rumored that in a special interview with E! tv the rapper would come out the closet as a homosexual. Other rumors have stated that the rapper would be dropped from his label SRC records, which is a part of Universal/Motown Records. A SRC spokesperson released a statement saying all rumors were false.

“Asher Roth is not gay, and is not scheduled to be interviewed on the E! Channel,” the statement reads. “Furthermore, Asher has not been dropped from SRC Records, and is a top priority at the label after having sold over a million copies his ‘I Love College’ single. Asher is currently working on his next album for SRC,” the follow-up to his debut Asleep in the Bread Aisle.

The rumor about Roth apparently began when the rapper reportedly made a remark supporting former “American Idol” singer Clay Aiken, who is gay. Blogs and Web sites then posted information that Roth attended a gay rights parade with Lady Gaga, Aiken, and members of Blink-182.

Roth himself has not commented on the matter.
