As the Pride Month ended a couple of days ago, Lil Nas X decided to celebrate it by making a big announcement. This twenty-year-old singer shared his new single on Twitter this Sunday evening. It all seemed like the usual business, but the “Old Town Road” singer decided to take a step further, saying to his fans that they should pay close attention to the meaning of the song he had just published.
On social media, he said that some already knew this, and some didn’t really care, but he wanted to come out of the closet. The end of the Pride Month was there, so Lil Nas X wished to share his story. Before he ended the tweet, he added the rainbow flag, a sparkling star, and starry-eyed face emojis.
Some of his new lyrics said the world should let him grow, that he didn’t want to have any regrets about not coming out when he got old.
Even though the music star hasn’t precisely given an explanation about the post’s meaning, it’s safe to say that he officially declared himself as a member of the gay community. Fans commented that this act was original and brave when we take into consideration the fact that the majority of Lil Nas X audience are heterosexual men.
Many fans claim that they are very proud of their favorite star. Some express their regrets about the pressure Lil Nas X had to deal with because some individuals were forcing him to admit that he was gay before he was ready to say it.
James Charles, a famous YouTube influencer, also commented on this tweet saying that he was very happy for Lil Nas X.
We just hope that the next year’s Pride Month will be even better than this year’s, which was already great.
