Gray has released ten studio albums, and received five Grammy Award nominations, winning one. She has appeared in a number of films, including Training Day, Spider-Man, Scary Movie 3, Lackawanna Blues, Idlewild, For Colored Girls, and The Paperboy.
Macy Gray has reacted to backlash over recent comments viewed as transphobic, saying it was all a big misunderstanding. The Grammy Award-winning musician was widely criticized on social media earlier this week after an appearance on TalkTV’s “Piers Morgan Uncensored.”
During Monday evening’s episode, Gray defined “woman” as “a human being with boobs … and a vagina,” and acknowledged that “everybody’s going to hate me” for saying that “just because you go change your [body] parts, doesn’t make you a woman.”
Morgan also brought up “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowland, who has for long raised eyebrows with her very public comments on transgender issues, pointing out that Gray could also be “attacked” by the “cancel culture mob.”
