Macklemore Accepts VMA for 'Same Love', Says 'Gay Rights are Human Rights': VIDEO
Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, and Mary Lambert took the stage to accept the MTV Moonman at the VMAs for "Best Video with a Social Message" for their marriage equality anthem "Same Love".
"I'll be honest. I really wanted to win the award for Best Rap Video but this Moonman here stands for a lot more. I've been writing songs since I was 15 and out of every single song I have every written to me this is the most important record out of all of them. And to watch this song in the last year spread across the world is a testament to what is happening right here now America on the forefront of equality. Gay rights are human rights there is no separation."
