The “Old Town Road” star urged fans on Twitter on Sunday to “listen closely” to his song “C7osure” before the end of Pride Month. He added a rainbow emoji and a smiley face with heart eyes at the end of his tweet.
The song’s lyrics include the refrain: “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.”
He later posted an image of the cover of his EP “7,” which he pointed out featured a rainbow-colored building. “deadass thought I made it obvious,” he quipped.
Though some fans were baffled by the tweets, many concluded that Lil Nas X had just come out as LGBTQ.
“Really happy for u dude,” tweeted gay YouTube star James Charles.
“Your existence is going to help so many young kids,” wrote comedian Dewayne Perkins.
