Lil Nas X Opens Up About Coming Out Backlash

20-year-old singer Lil Nas X sat down with BBC Breakfast last Friday to talk about the backlash he received from his recent coming out.

 

He revealed he was gay with a series of cryptic tweets.

 

“It was something I was considering just never doing ever, just taking to the grave or something, but I don’t want to live my entire life not doing what I want to do,” Lil Nas X explained.

 

“I’m also opening doors for more people.

 



“Especially within the country and hip-hop communities, it’s not really accepting in either.”

 

When asked about the backlash he said: “I’m already getting it! Learning the internet over the past couple years, I used to be that person being negative.

 

“I’m not angry or anything, because I understand they want that reaction. I’m just going to joke back with them.”
