Lil Nas X, the breakout rapper known for his viral hit “Old Town Road” and his unapologetic approach to his queerness, has recently sparked a conversation about his sexuality with a tweet. “Be fr would y’all be mad at me if I thought I was a little bisexual,” he wrote, leaving fans wondering if the tweet was a joke or a sincere revelation.

It’s not the first time Lil Nas X, whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill, has hinted at his bisexuality. In his music video for “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” he depicts himself as a seductive serpent descending into hell to give Adam a lap dance. In his EP “Montero,” he sings about being attracted to multiple genders.
Lil Nas X has always been vocal about his sexuality, and back in 2019, he came out as gay on the last day of Pride month via Twitter. “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,” he wrote, sharing a picture of the rainbow flag on his EP “7”.
Since then, he’s been using his platform to break down stereotypes and challenge societal norms. He’s been promoting self-acceptance, self-expression, and self-love through his music and fashion choices and has been a role model for many in the LGBTQ+ community.
His recent tweet has sparked a conversation about the fluidity of sexuality and the importance of not defining someone else’s identity. Some have applauded Lil Nas X for being honest about his feelings and being a trailblazer, while others criticized him for flippantly using the term “bisexual”.
Regardless of the tweet’s motives, Nas X continues to push boundaries, challenge societal norms, and inspire people through his music and personal journey.
