On Last Day of Pride Month, Lil Nas X Comes Out

Monday July 1, 2019

Musician Lil Nas X, who has had the number one song in America since April, took to Twitter on the last day of Pride Month and seemingly came out as gay.

The "Old Country Road" rapper told his 1.3 million followers to take a closer look at the lyrics of his song "C7osure" off his new "7 EP."

"some of y'all already know, some of y'all don't care, some of y'all not gone fwm no more," he wrote. "but before this month ends i want y'all to listen closely to c7osure." His tweet also included a rainbow emoji.

He also pointed to his EP's artwork, saying "deadass thought I made it obvious." The tweet included a zoomed in picture of the album's cover, which shows a rainbow building.

Pitchfork pulled out the pertinent lyrics to the song that could reveal more about his sexuality:

"True say, I want and I need to let go, use my time to be free." He later raps: "Ain't no more actin', man that forecast say I should just let me grow/No more red light for me baby, only green, I gotta go/Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take ahold/This is what I gotta do, can't be regrettin' when I'm old."

Lil Was X's "Old Town Road" has gone on to break streaming records that were previously held by Drake. The song also blocked Taylor Swift's two new singles from reaching the no. 1 spot on Billboard.
