A video that has gone viral shows Lil Nas X’s honest confession onstage.
Lil Nas X is known for being honest with his fans, but he took it to a whole new level at a recent show when he told the truth onstage.
Friday, in the middle of a show in Atlanta, Lil Nas X told the crowd that he had to go to the bathroom right away.
“I’m backstage, and this is, like, not part of the show, but I’m taking a mean s**t, so please forgive me,” the rapper said to the crowd through a microphone, adding that he only needed “a minute or two” on the toilet.
In a video that went viral, the 23-year-old Grammy winner said, “I’ll be right back.”
Saturday, the singer-songwriter went on Twitter to explain that the moment wasn’t a joke.
“lmao, people thought I was serious,” he wrote on Twitter. “I was back there literally putting demons down that toilet.”
The Old Town Road singer started his “Long Live Montero” tour last month. On September 18, he was in the news for how he reacted to protesters from “street ministry” outside of his Boston show.
Lil Nas X wrote on TikTok, “So people were protesting my concert last night.” So, we gave them pizza.
The winner of the American Music Award went on to say that “one of the homophobes was hot” and that he “accidentally fell in love with one of the homophobic protesters.”
Since he came out as gay in June 2019, Lil Nas X has had to deal with hate and cyberbullying because of it.
In March 2021, he defended the Montero (Call Me By Your Name) video in which he twerked on Satan by tweeting that he did not want his work to “cater to” children.
“Every week, our government does nothing to stop a mass shooting,” he tweeted at the time. “Me sliding down a CG pole isn’t what’s destroying society.
“I spent my whole teenage years hating myself because of all the bad things you said would happen to me because I was gay,” the musician said. “So I hope you’re angry, and I hope you stay angry. I hope you feel the same anger you teach us to feel toward ourselves.”
Even though it was controversial, Adam Lambert, Elizabeth Banks, FKA Twigs, and other famous people praised the music video for being brave.
