The rapper, singer and songwriter is reflecting on being thrust to stardom overnight at the age of 21, and shared all about it in his interview with CR Men that came out on October 9 where he’s also featured in the cover.
On his newfound fame, the “Old Time Road” singer shared his honest thoughts, saying that there are times when he laughs, and then there are times when he cries because he’s still coming to terms with the magnitude of it.
Life after coming out as gay publicly
The rapper came out as gay on twitter in June 2019, and in the interview revealed what happened when he told his family. He said that his dad “said some very Christian things” which included that his homosexuality could be the devil tempting him. Lil Nas X, whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill said that while it sucked, he still saw it coming.
