Canadian pop singer Nelly Furtado says she's proud to live in a country that supports gay marriage.

The 32-year-old entertainer and mother of 7-year-old daughter Nevis says there is nothing wrong with gay couples marrying.

“I'm proud to live in Canada, a country that supports gay marriage, because I can speak openly about it to my child,” Furtado says in an interview with Brandon Voss published in South Florida gay monthly She magazine. “Children shouldn't be raised in a bubble. There's nothing wrong with it, so why wouldn't I treat it as normal?”

The I'm Like a Bird singer also speaks out on the recent rash of gay teens bullied to death.

“Nothing makes me more brokenhearted than seeing people who feel they can't be themselves. It's such a crime. God, it's so hard and horrible to be a teenager, and the virtual way young people communicate nowadays makes them feel even more disconnected. My advice [to troubled gay teens] is to reach out and find somebody you can relate to, because human interaction can heal those wounds.”
