Lil Nas X, who recently became a huge star with his mega-hit Old Town Road, has revealed he is gay.
Revealing the news on his Twitter account, the 20 year old star told fans to listen for a lyric in his song C7osure from his new EP entitled 7 EP.
On the last day of Pride, his tweet wrote:
“some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm [f*** with me] no more. But before this month ends I want y’all to listen closely to c7osure.”
C7osure begins with the words:
“True say, I want and I need to let go, use my time to be free”
before the lyrics in question at the end of the song go:
“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 ahold.
This is what I gotta do, can’t be regrettin’ when I’m old.”
Lil Nas later tweeted a picture of one of his performance sets kitted out in LGBTQ+ colours, saying:
“deadass thought I made it obvious.”
His revelation has had huge amounts of support, one person wrote:
“Ik what you’re talking about and I accept you bro, everyone should tbh you coming out shouldn’t change people’s views about you cause at the end of the day you’re still the same lil nas X we all know and love!”
