LIL NAS X opens up about his sexuality amid cryptic tweets

Rapper LIL NAS X  opened up on social media during World Pride Day to tell his fans that he is a member of the LGBTQ community.

Dropping various hints about his sexuality, he on Sunday, June 30th tweeted:

“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,” with an emoji and a clip from his “C7osure” music video.

He later went on to tweet his album art and zoomed in on a rainbow-colored building in the background. He wrote, “Deadass thought I made it obvious,” which fueled more speculations towards the 20-year-old rapper.

However, NAS decided to clear the air by finally opening up in a tweet he shared on Monday.


Lil Nas X released his first EP, titled 7, earlier this month. The eight-track project includes megahit “Old Town Road”—the remix featuring Billy Ray Cyrus hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
