Lil Nas X is trending worldwide and has become the most talked-about artist in the world. More than a guy with incredibly catchy songs, Lil Nas X opens up today on his Spout Podcast episode about breaking the internet, becoming an author, dating, and how fame has changed his relationships.
His new song (accompanied by a controversial music video), Montero (Call Me By Your Name), released just five days ago, is simultaneously #1 on Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube. However, some are uncomfortable with his recent release. Lil Nas X responded to the backlash on his Twitter.
Like Ozzy Osborne, Mapplethorpe, Kiss, David Bowe, and Eminem before him, his content is upsetting some; but he is active on social media, reminding people to be themselves.
