Lil Nas X

Lil Nas X is clearly one of the year’s biggest surprises, especially after winning two MTV VMAs, while his song, Old Town Road, remained on the first position of the Billboard Hot 100 for nineteen weeks!

Still, he wanted to let the entire world know about his sexuality, so he came out as gay.

During his latest appearance on HBO’s The Shop: Uninterrupted, Lil Nas X explained to host Kevin Hart how he took this decision.

“It’s not that it is, like, being forced. It’s just that knowing, like growing up, I’m growing up to hate this s**t. […] “But if you’re doing this while you’re at the top, you know it’s for real, and it’s showing it doesn’t really matter, I guess.”

Eventually, the moment went viral on social media, as everybody praised the singer for the maturity he has shown with these statements!
