Lil Nas X Addresses His Revelation Of His Homosexuality

Lil Nas X Addresses His Revelation Of His Homosexuality

After cryptic tweets suggesting his queer identity, 20-year-old rapper Lil Nas X was finally asked point-blank by the media whether he’s gay or what. He is gay, and he says the homophobic backlash isn’t getting to him because he used to be similarly negative online.

Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty, co-hosts of BBC’s Breakfast program, chatted with Lil Nas X yesterday morning. In their talk, the rapper said he was gay and added, “I don’t have anything to hide.”

He said: “I kinda revealed it, y’know? That I am gay. It was just something that I was never just [revealing] ever, just like taking to the grave or something. But it was like, I don’t want to just, live my entire life, especially how I just got to where I am, not doing what I want to do. And I also, I feel like, opening doors for more people who… that they feel more comfortable pretty much. Especially within the hip-hop and country community… [homosexuality] is not really accepted in either, so…”

When asked about the homophobic backlash to his coming out, he said, “I’m already getting it. Learning the internet over the past couple of years… I used to be that person being negative. I’m not angry or anything, y’know, because I understand how they want that reaction. But I’m just going to joke back with them.”
