Lil Nas X bust it open literally and figuratively Saturday night (May 22) when he ripped his pants during a choreography break at the season 46 finale of ‘SNL.’
No stranger to being a viral sensation, the GRAMMY winner instantly became meme fodder once his reaction to ripping his pants during the inaugural live performance of his #1 hit, ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name),’ was captured.
Taking it all in stride, LNX was all laughs when he took to ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ recently (May 25) to discuss the incident.
Look inside to see what he said:
“So, I was pretty much going down the pole, you know, doing my little sexy drop down and boom, I feel air,” said Lil Nas X. “I was like, okay, there’s definitely a breeze going on and I also felt like, some popping, like still happening while I was down there. I was like, ‘Oh God, I hope it’s not…just please don’t be on TV already.'”
“And SNL was actually live,” he added. “You know what the worst part is? At the end of the performance, the dancers are supposed to like touch me and tug on me or whatever, and they were tugging on the pants and I was like, ‘Please, God no.'”
