Did Lil Nas X just come out?
Just as Pride Month came to a close, the “Old Town Road” rapper seemed to reveal some pretty big news about himself.
“…before the month ends, i want y’all to listen to close to 'c7osure,'” Nas, whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill, said on Twitter, followed by a rainbow emoji.
"C7osure," the latest single on his new album "7," has lyrics that discuss being “free” and that there will be “no more actin’.”
He followed up with another tweet that reads, “…thought I made it obvious,” and includes pictures from his latest album’s cover, which appear to show rainbow flags against a city skyline.
Even though Nas hasn’t quite confirmed the big news, he seemed to let his followers know they were on the right path by retweeting and liking other tweets that mentioned his apparent homosexuality.
That was seemingly contradicted by an Instagram post that read, “just cuz i’m gay don’t mean i’m gay.”
His manager, though, seemed to confirm the news of his coming out through a comment on social media.
“So proud of you @lilnasx. You are incredibly brave and an inspiration to all the young kids who follow and look up to you. Not only are you a tremendous talent that the world has only begun to learn about, but you’re also an amazing person with a warm heart. You deserve everything that comes to you…” Adam Leber commented on Instagram, followed by rainbow and heart emojis.
