Tori Amos says she'd be OK if her daughter Natashya “Tash” Hawley was a lesbian.

The 48-year-old singer-songwriter made her comments during an interview with Michigan gay weekly Pride Source.

When asked whether she was attempting to turn Tash, 11, into a gay icon, Amos answered that her daughter has “grown up with gay people in our life.”

“[S]he knows very well what I think. I had a chat with her once that if she ever came home and said she was a lesbian then that's her choice. And she said to me: 'Mom, I'm not a lesbian. Black guys are hot.'”

Amos, a native of North Carolina, also weighed in on the current proposal to ban gay marriage in the state constitutionally.

“I just don't understand how you can see yourself as Christian and have no compassion for another person's path,” Amos said. “It goes against the Christ-like energy and light that I was brought up with.”

My father “had to really stretch as a Methodist minister, but he's embraced the idea that gay people deserve rights.”

Amos' 12th studio album Night of Hunters was released on September 20.
