Rapper Lil Nas X is revealing for the first time that he was thinking to not reveal to the world that he was gay. He thought about instead taking his love for men to the grave with him. It would not be a surprise if Lil Nas X took his sexual appetite for men to the grave. Many celebrities are said to be living in the closet in fear of losing their audience which means a risk of income loss as well if they reveal they are gay. From The Spin:
In a new new interview with BBC Breakfast, X said that he didn’t want to have “anything to hide” from fans. “I kind of revealed [it], you know?” he said. When asked to clarify what exactly he revealed, he said, “That I am gay.
It’s something I was considering never doing, ever—taking to the grave, he continued. “But I don’t wanna live my entire life—especially how I got to where I’m at—not doing what I wanna do.
It takes a brave, and notable figure as Lil Nas X who risked losing his audience upon revealing he is gay. Whether he took a safe, calculated gamble based on the success of Old Town Country, we don’t know. Time will tell if the rapper survives the backlash, and if he maintains his fan base upon revealing he is gay. In other news, Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road is at its 14th leading Hot 100 music chart.
