AceShowbiz - Is Lil Nas X actually lying about his sexuality all this time? The "Old Town Road" rapper took to Twitter on Wednesday, April 1 to reveal that he was never gay in the first place and that he just wanted to fool people.
"I was never gay. I said it to build up fuel for aprils fools day. Ha got u guys," Nas said on the micro-blogging site, adding in another tweet, "where the h**s at." However, before people started believing that he was never gay in the first place, the Grammy-winning musician followed it up with a tweet that suggested that it was merely an April Fool's Day joke.
He tweeted, "ok I'm gay again."
Many found his joke funny, with one saying, "LMAOOO. You can't help but love him and his sense of humor." Another person commented, "Lol I love that he can just be himself." Some others, in the meantime, joked along with him. "have you passed your gay test to get your license back? i can help," someone said, as one other poked fun at him, "Took you 13 minutes."
Troye Sivan was also among the people who replied to his post, simply saying, "Welcome back."
Nas came out as gay during Pride Month last year, pointing to the lyrics of "c7osure" as confirmation of his sexuality. Since then, the rapper has been vocals about his sexuality in interviews. For instance, when he appeared on HBO's "The Shop: Unscripted" last September, he revealed that he decided to come out when he was at the peak of his popularity because he didn't want to be accused of seeking attention.
"If you're doing this while you're at the top, you know that it's for real," he said on the show at the time. "It's showing that it doesn't really matter, I guess."
