Is Lil Nas X Gay

‘Old Town Road’ rapper Lil Nas X appears to come out during Pride Month

 

Rapper Lil Nas X appeared to come out as LGBT on Sunday, marking the last day of Pride Month.

The 20-year-old “Old Town Road” breakout star made the apparent announcement on Twitter. “Some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care,” he tweeted, along with a rainbow emoji, which is the universal symbol for the LGBT community

“But before this month ends I want y’all to listen closely to c7osure.”

C7osure (You Like) is a song from Lil Nas X’s new album “7” that talks about needing to be “free,” according to the BBC.

 

Nas posted a second tweet a couple of hours later of images from his album cover, which displays a rainbow skyline.

“…thought I made it obvious,” he tweeted.

Nas’ “Old Town Road” has become a musical sensation, and its remix featuring Billie Ray Cyrus has spent 12 weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100. The rap/country crossover song was initially met with controversy after Billboard pulled it from the Country music chart over claims it wasn’t “country enough.”

 

Critics suggested that the rapper, who is black, was singled out because of his race and pointed out that crossover songs are routinely included on country charts. Billboard fired back, stating that its decision to take the song off of the country chart “had absolutely nothing to do with the race of the artist.”

 

c7osure Lyrics

 

True say
I want and I need
To let go
Use my time to be free
It’s like it’s always what you like
It’s always what you like
Why it’s always what you like?
It’s always what you like, huh
Ain’t no more actin’, man that forecast say I should just let me grow
No more red light for me, baby, only green, I gotta go
Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take a hold
This is what I gotta do, can’t be regretting when I’m old
Brand new places I’ll choose and I’ll go, I know
Embracing this news I behold unfolding
I know, I know, I know it don’t feel like it’s time
But I look back at this moment, I’ll see that I’m fine
I know, I know, I know it don’t feel like it’s time
I set boundaries for myself, it’s time to cross the line
True say
I want and I need
To let go
Use my time to be free
It’s like it’s always what you like
It’s always what you like
Why it’s always what you like?
It’s always what you like, huh
Ain’t no more actin’, man that forecast say I should just let me grow
No more red light for me, baby, only green, I gotta go
Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take a hold
This is what I gotta do, can’t be regretting when I’m old
