“I’ll be honest. I really wanted to win the award for Best Rap Video but this Moonman here stands for a lot more,” rapper Macklemore said when accepting the award for Best Video with a Social Message. “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,” he added on stage alongside singer Mary Lambert and producing partner Ryan Lewis. Later in the evening, the rapper also took to the stage with Lambert and Jennifer Hudson to perform the song to a cheering crowd including Lady Gaga who was visibly thrilled at Macklemore’s message.
