Lil Nas X Reveals He Spent Teenage Years Trying To Pray Away The Gay

Published: Wednesday 2nd Oct 2019 by Sam

Lil Nas X is living his truth and turning up the volume on his story pre the colossal success of ‘Old Town Road.’

During a candid interview with Gayle King on CBS This Morning, the 20-year-old opened up about his struggles rationalising his sexuality during his teen years.

And how, for a long while before he came out, he spent significant periods trying to pray away the gay.

His emotional sit-down awaits below…

Per Nas’ interview, it’s clear he’s now trying to use his platform to help those struggling – internally or because of bullying from others.

Kudos to him.

    Is this gay thing the sole focus of his identity now?? Nobody cares!! Arghhh I’m getting real fed up of the LGBTQ’s community. It’s seems there is some unseen agenda being pushed and all this is surface s*** hiding darker things.

      Shut up u ignorant idiot

      Being gay is illegal in more than 40 countries. Gays are actually killed in some parts of the world.

      Lil nas x being open about his sexuality is helping. Visibility is important.

      Black panther, a movie with an entire dark skin black cast has helped a lot of dark skin people to accept their skin colour and their black beauty.

      Ur a fool. Kill ur self. Idiot

      I think Lil Nas should keep putting out music and videos. All these interviews about his sexxuality should coincide with album promotion and a tour. Sexxuality does not make or define a man. Talent defined you. Lots of celebs are gay but their talents are what they are known for and what makes them remain celebs decade after decade (Elton John, Liberace, Tyler Perry, Ellen, Rupaul, etc). Get to work Lil Nas. No more breaks.

    Do anything for clout

  4. The Real Princess Jasmine October 2, 2019

    Anything to draw attention from the fact he can’t Rap for Shyt like Lizzo these new 2019 artists are all hype and no talent watch him win a Grammy Award just like CardiB …… take us back to a time when Talent was Needed to Win Awards I guess Millie Vanillie paved away for today’s artist

    • Dc October 2, 2019

      Thing is cardi b album still in top 50 billboard 200 so if she was not talented album would have been fell off charts so keep hating

      • Gworl Bye October 2, 2019

        Thats only because of streaming, not talent. cardi b is not talented.

      • The Real Princess Jasmine October 2, 2019

        CardiB isn’t talented she’s popular u have talent and popularity confused learn the difference

    • Swirly October 2, 2019

      Did you say Lizzo isn’t talented? She may not be your cup of tea, but she is extremely talented. You tried it.

      • The Real Princess Jasmine October 2, 2019

        Why because she can play a flute and eat chicken wings at the same damn time she is no Jennifer Hudson or Patti Labelle she’s as talented as Any clown 🤡 at a circus 🎪

      • Swirly October 2, 2019

        One doesn’t have to be Jennifer Hudson or Patti LaBelle to be considered talented. Goodbye. Lizzo can sing, rap, play flute and perform her ass off. She has more talent in her eyelash than Lil Nas X has in his entire body. Every time you comment on a Lizzo post you mention her weight which leads me to believe that you’re bothered.

      • Gworl Bye October 2, 2019

        Exploiting your weight is not talent.

      • Gworl Bye October 2, 2019

        Was that supposed to be funny? Grow up stupid.

  8. Diabetes Unbothered October 2, 2019

    This gay s*** is so CORNY. He’s not doing anything to help others or himself. All he’s doing is making heterosexuals even more delusional than they already are by reinforcing the heterosexual belief system that ALL homosexuals are the same and ALL homosexuals are at the mercy of heterosexuals and ALL homosexuals are either ashamed or should be and ALL homosexuals support the rainbow etc… Only 2 words come to mind here #DELUSIONAL and #CORNY

  9. Diabetes Unbothered October 2, 2019

    ALLLLL homosexuals are just begging and pleading for acceptance and approval and ALL homosexuals wish homophobia didn’t exist so they can be “FREE” …. . Another LIE!!!!!
