Lil Nas X come out as gay over the weekend.
The American rapper is enjoying enormous success with his single 'Old Town Road', a kind of ultra-catchy rap meets country mash up.
On June 30th - the final day of Pride Month - he tweeted a message to fans, pointing them to the lyrics of his song 'C7osure'.
some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm no more. but before this month ends i want y’all to listen closely to c7osure. pic.twitter.com/O9krBLllqQ— nope (@LilNasX) June 30, 2019
Almost immediately, though, some people online made wise-cracks about 'Old Town Road' - specifically, what Lil Nas X meant by "ride til I can't no more..." The American artist hit back:
old town road is literally about horses.— nope (@LilNasX) July 1, 2019
So that's that clarified.
just cuz i’m gay don’t mean i’m not straight— nope (@LilNasX) July 1, 2019
