Lil Nas X Slams ‘Bottom Shaming’ in Gay Culture: It’s ‘A Form of Misogyny Between Men’

Published: Thursday 12th Aug 2021 by Rashad

When not trolling fans and detractors on social media, Lil Nas X is making headlines for ruffling the feathers of less-than-liberal-leaning viewers who express outrage over the content of his risqué music videos and stage performances.

And though he takes the attention in stride (as recently revealed via his recent eye-popping feature in ‘Variety’), the openly gay music star also uses his platform for educational purposes – not only raising his voice to teach those outside the gay community but those within it as well.

See what we mean inside:

Among the many quotes from his ‘Variety’ interview sure to get tongues wagging, it’s arguable the two spiciest centered on the GRAMMY winner’s love and sex life.

Dishing on his relationship status, the 22-year-old stunned when he revealed he is currently off the market.

“Yeah. I think this is the one,” LNX said when quizzed on if he was in a relationship. “I can’t explain it. It’s a feeling.”


While the statement may put rumors of his romantic availability to rest, it did little to quell conversation around his sexual role – an ongoing discussion partly fueled by LNX’s own admission in his 2020 top 40 hit, ‘Holiday,’ when he said:

“Can I pop sh*t?/I might bottom on the low, but I top sh*t.”

When quizzed on if the lyric was his strategic way of ‘coming out as a bottom,’ LNX laughed off the question by addressing the stigma around sexual positions in male same sex relationships.

“I feel like even within the gay community, people see bottoming as a joke or something. And somebody who bottoms is beneath a top or something. The idea of that, I feel like, is a form of misogyny between men,” he said. “It doesn’t make any sense, and people attribute certain traits to whichever sexual position you decide to take. A lot of people say, ‘It’s just a joke.’ But all jokes have truths to them.”


Love and sex weren’t all LNX talked about.  Click here to see what else he told ‘Variety’ about his new album, DaBaby, and so much more.

  6. Lil Nas X is Trash August 12, 2021

    This dude is delusional AF; I have been gay for 20 years, there is no such thing as “Bottom shaming”, this dude is so desperate to play the victim he is making up fake forms of oppression. I want to punch this dude in the face for representing gay people this way. We are strong, we are not victims, Lil Nas X is a pu55y.

    • Your Name August 12, 2021

      Yeah, no real gay would ever say this. Bottom shaming is ABSOLUTELY a thing.

      • Are You Kidding Me? August 12, 2021

        Drag that weird homophobe. Bottom is used as an insult almost as the way you would use the f-word that rhymes with maggot.

    • KeyLoLo August 12, 2021

      Good analysis and truth

  7. KeyLoLo August 12, 2021

    Didn’t nobody call you that but your own kind of people Nas X 🙄…I don’t know any straight man who will flat out say “You are a bottom” as an insult…

    • Are You Kidding Me? August 12, 2021

      Even though Lil Kim called Drake a bottom a few years ago? Just stop.

      • KeyLoLo August 12, 2021

        Girl bye..ain’t like Lil Kim lied 🤷

    • I’ll say what i want and no one with do anything August 13, 2021

      He said bottom shaming within the gay community. Not straight people. How f****** slow are you that couldn’t read the title.

  8. Day 31 August 12, 2021

    This fool came out 2 weeks ago and think it is our ambassador. Trying to make bottom shaming happen it seems…. Geash!! go sit your demonic attention seeking foolery next to Sam Smith.

  9. Gurlbye August 12, 2021

    You dummies don’t even understand what he’s saying. Bottom shaming is definitely a thing because a significant portion of men are still afraid to openly say they bottom. They rather say they’re vers… because people automatically think you must be fem if you take d***.
    It’s the same idiots saying taking anything up your b*** makes you less than a man….ie anything feminine or woman-like makes you less of a man and it’s a common slur for that fact.

    • Glee August 12, 2021

      ISSA FACT!!! These socially retârded weirdos on here trying to act obtuse when they KNOW it’s the truth. Just because you dislike LNX doesn’t make what he said any less truthful!!!!

  10. Hmmmm…..oki August 13, 2021

    I guess he doesn’t know what the word misandry mean😬

  11. Brazio August 13, 2021

  12. Lizz Lee September 12, 2021

    The a*** is exit not an entrance. Putting a penis in a s*** hole is disgusting.
    Gay or straight, it’s f****** sick.
