Lil Nas X is setting the record straight.
On Wednesday, the “Old Town Road” rapper revealed that he ran a Nicki Minaj fan account after being called out by a Minaj fan for denying it in the past.
Lil Nas X initiated the conversation via Twitter by responding to one of Minaj’s tweets and asked her to appear on a new song that he has been working on. A fan then pressed him, saying, “How come you never claimed her when people asked if you were a barb?? We all knew who you were.”
Seeing the fan’s response, Lil Nas X replied, “i didn’t want people to know i was gay tbh.” Another fan chimed in, tweeting, “Being a barb don’t make you gay,” to which Lil Nas X, who came out publicly in June 2019, said, “it don’t but people will assume if you had an entire fan page dedicated to nicki u are gay. and the rap/music industry ain’t exactly built or accepting of gay men yet.”
