Professor Green has had "really interesting offers" from his gay fans.

The 27-year-old rapper - who was born and raised in Hackney, East London - is well aware of his gay fan base because they tell him what they want to "do" to him on social networking site twitter.

He said: "I know from my twitter how many gay fans I have. I've had some really interesting offers, and I've also been told what would be done to me.

"Some of them are polite and say, 'If you were. I would...', which is nicer than, 'If I ever see you, I will...', which would effectively be rape. But I'm sure they mean well."

The 'Spinning Out' rapper - who this week split from his girlfriend Candy McCulloch, the daughter of Echo And The Bunnymen singer Ian Mcculloch - is appreciative of his homosexual fans, and has seen lots of male couples at his gigs before.

He told Attitude magazine: "I think it's good because it shows how far we've progressed and how different it is for UK rap music - there isn't that prejudice.

"At the end of the day, prejudice is taught. It's not something you are born with."
