Lil Nas X has said he wanted to open up about his sexuality before the end of Pride Month by sharing a message on Twitter appearing to confirm he is a member of the LGBTQ community.
The rapper, who shot to fame with his hit Old Town Road with Billy Ray Cyrus, wrote: “Some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm [f*** with me] no more.
“But before this month ends i want y’all to listen closely to c7osure”.
He added a rainbow emoji, which is a symbol of gay pride.
The 20-year-old also posted a video for his song C7osure, which includes the lyrics: “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 adds: “Brand new places I’ll choose and I’ll go, I know.
“Embracin’ this news I behold unfolding. I know, I know, I know it don’t feel like it’s time.
“But I look back at this moment, I’ll see that I’m fine.”
He also tweeted a picture of his album artwork and a second image zoomed in on the rainbow included in it.
The rapper added: “Deadass thought I made it obvious.”
