i’m proud of america (for once).
i haven’t said/fonted that in a while.
lil nas x came out of the closet and there was no push back.
he is still selling and i enjoy him on twitter.
he spoke to “time magazine” about how scared he was to come out.
a foxholer sent me what he he had to say via “msn“…
Lil Nas X said in a recent interview that he didn’t initially plan to come out as gay, in part due to his fear of alienating some of his fans.
The rapper, who went viral was his hit “Old Town Road,” said he’d been taught from a young age that homosexuality “is never going to be OK,” and told Time magazine that he was afraid of losing fans if he came out.
“I know the people who listen to [country music] the most, and they’re not accepting of homosexuality,” said Lil Nas, whose hit single successfully combines elements of country and hip-hop.
Lil Nas told the magazine that Pride month ended up motivating him to open up about his sexuality.
“In June, I’m seeing Pride flags everywhere and seeing couples holding hands – little stuff like that,” the rapper said, adding, “I never would have [come out] if I wasn’t in a way pushed by the universe.”
here is a video from his “time magazine” shoot:
i kinda think he had to come out.
folks were applying pressure about his past nicki minaj stan account,
plus his nudes were circulating everywhere.
i still think it’s child porn,
but that’s another story.
i’m glad he was able to live his truth tho.
he’s a great lesson on conquering fear.
a majority of the time,
it’s all in your head.
you gotta know when “your moment” is.
once you feel it,
i font that you do it.
The Universe might be leading you to your breakthrough.
