He's a rapper. He was never going to retain that audience.
Nothing he does is my style but I'm appreciative of a young, unapologetic, out gay man with a successful music career not shying away from who he is.

True. But, I kind of think he was getting out ahead of it. He had a pop hit and then came very publicly out. He could have sanded off the edges and maybe had another mainstream pop hit. But, if he wanted to "live his truth", he probably saw that the writing was on the wall. So, he seems to accept that he's going to be more niche and his audience narrower with this.

The discussion-reaction of black gay men who felt torn grown up in churches is illuminating — dazzling. Naz wrote a description in Variety, which includes the explanation for the text on the tree.
“The story opens in a lush Garden of Eden where Nas first introduces the theme of duality, which is displayed throughout the video,”. “He plays the role of Adam as well as the snake that tempts him into giving in to the carnal desires he was forbidden to explore, and we see the two merge and become one. Following a nod to Plato’s Symposium displayed on the tree of life, a shackled up Nas finds himself at his execution day in the Colosseum, where he is surrounded by and receiving judgment from various versions of himself. Once he has been executed, he ascends to heaven only to be pulled down to hell where he harnesses his sexuality to seduce the devil and strip him of his power as an evil force — and dismantling the throne of judgment and punishment that has kept many of us from embracing our true selves out of fear.”

I'm 63 and white and I absolutely love the song and the declicious video. Gen Z and younger don't care about your outdated, lingering, outrage over gender-bending or the in-your-face manner in which they embrace shifting, gender fluid identities. This ridiculous clinging to binary ideas of gender identity is stodgy and incredibly dull. Younger generations defiantly exhibit a subversive "devil-may-care" attitude and I applaud them for it. They're unabashedly, creatively agressive. If you're offended or put off by it, turn your appalled eyes to something more milquetoast. Something a little safer for your delicate sensibilities. Better yet, get off the fucking stage already and make room for future generations. This goes for any stage, political, creative, or social.

Some black ladies in their 60s told me they loved OTR but they couldn't remember his name lol. Its the branding issue...people look for consistency and this is not very consistent with what he's been doing for the last couple of years.
Artists are very sensitive and always feel like they aren't totally accepted because of social norms, when sometimes its not that deep. When you are selling a product people do have some expectations of what they are going to get. When you give them something else, even if its the same thing someone else is giving, it can go left. But he appears to be winning in this so good for him.

The video is fun. The song is OK my biggest critique is I don't like the reference to cocaine.
I LOVE that dumbass christians are mad haha. They have this obnoxious arrogance that they control everything culturally. Those days are over. Us millennials and gen zers are far less religious than the boomers and gen xers which is a good thing.
The song is currently #1 on itunes and I hope it stays there so radio will be forced to play this song.
If the wokesters on social media can get rid of the influence of religion in society that will be amazing. This is the first of many steps.
Lil Nas X is a brave young man. I didn't realize he's only 21. Hopefully his success will launch more openly gay musical acts

Naz actually denounces cocaine in the song.... Pretty sure that goes for the "Lookin' at the table, all I see is weed and white / Baby, you livin' the life, but nigga, you ain't livin' right" reference, too... While, he may be going to hell for sex, me thinks Naz is promoting sobriety — especially in the African-American community.

A lot of cheap and easy responses here.
I suspect most DL-ers aren't too taken aback by the imagery. More eye-rolling than pearl-clutching.
The knee-jerk race allegations are weak, and frankly risible. It is the last refuge of not having a good argument--and it really borne out of the femme/masculine/generational debate which is more legitimate. But, the racist thing is thrown in as a kind of emotional chum to up the feeding frenzy.
Now excuse me as I superciliously sweep my scarf over my shoulder and stride away....

Lil Nas X didn't use them, it's the company issuing them that is being sued. And it's also a protected act to take existing products and enhance them and resell them, so Nike has a bit of an uphill climb on this one.
Nike also didn't protest when someone made Jesus Nikes awhile back, so that will work against them as well.

Good and evil? Sure, that exists. Satan and God (also hell and heaven, demons and angels) are just human creations to give us some, imaginative, visual aid.
It's the good ol' "half glass empty" vs. "half glass full". You either decide that you believe

I’ve only gotten up to response 187. But I can’t believe the dark cloud that still resides over the gay community, the fear that we still have to try so hard to get those who obviously hate us to like us - still. He can’t be flammimg because I got beat up as a kid for being flammimg. We can’t bend genders, that just makes us look like sissies and it’s gonna make them hate us more. We can’t fuck with Satan - well because he’s real and the church will be mad. JESUS CHRIST you people, the definition of Stockholm syndrome.
And all of you saying it’s a career ruining move. Maybe the kid doesn’t want mass selling Coca Cola at the super bowl appeal. Maybe he wants to put the biggest bullet in that idea of who he is while he has a major platform to do it. Maybe he’d rather just fucking be his daring self and have fans who love him for him and not for whom they think he is. I mean he already tasted huge fame and it probably felt extremely claustrophobic from what it was forcing him to become.
And I’ve always loved the fact that Mr. Fuck You Like an Animal NIN Trent Reznor is sampled in OTR and gave his blessing. Lil Nas was already giving a two finger fuck you to middle America but they were too dumb to realize it. And they still dragged him over the coals, not for being gay but black. Fuck ‘em.
Why on earth are will still trying to make them feel comfortable with our presence? Yet katty Perry can talk about bringing out her “big balloons?”
My only fear is the white hot heat of the energy he’s bringing down on himself will obliterate him. He just kicked a door wide open for a whole generation of young artist who’ve been hiding their entire lives but he might get sacraficed for it. BUT I applaud and thank him for doing so - for us.
And no matter how you feel, we need to support this move. Because if we don’t, the world definitely won’t and will use us as the excuse to silence this type of bravery.

Not for nothing (and a bit of shameless promotion) this video really charged me. I’m a 45 year old black designer who grew up in the Baptist Church. I know exactly the anger this kid is speaking from. The fuck it all attitude. I consider getting over the church one of the greatest achievements of my life. I created my t-shirt line around it. Yet even still I find myself tip-toeing around the imagery, my ideas. I know what I feel in my heart but I’m still trying not to anger those who were only all too comfortable making me hate myself.
And here comes this 21 yo kid with everything to lose in such a major way blantantly forcing those exact same people to look at themselves. He’s not poking the bear, be shot the damn thing in the head and told them to come pick up the body.
This is my exact testimony:
“ Baptist Training Union was born from my roots growing up in the Southern Baptist Church. It’s a celebration of community, of a shared experience. This is not an affirmation of religious tenets. Baptist Training Union is a reclaiming of the words that once guided me - words that were then used against me - and turning them into inspiration for the clothes that I design.
This is a love letter to those traditions that I can now look back on and honor in my own way, in my own voice and sense of style. And It’s my hope to continue that sense of community, through my clothes, with like-minded individuals, who have discovered the power and freedom of self-expression on this side of the cross – people who remember their roots, but bear their own fruit.”
Lil Nas is my God - my next tee.

Justin Bieber who is mediocre in every way has a massive following especially when he "found" God and got married. So Evangelicals and suburbanites love him and forget about his shitty behavior.
Lil Nas X is black and gay and that will always be a penalty against him in the eyes of these Republicans. Also, he isn't playing it safe and his music is getting more sexual. Unlike Harry, Tyler and Frank Ocean who try to be sexually ambiguous. Nas is no longer hiding his love of cock and anal. So he isn't fulfilling the sexless gay friend stereotype in the media either.
Sure he isn't the first or only gay artist to do this but he has a massive mainstream platform and success which makes the "Montero" video more groundbreaking.

R394 Jesus was totally gay. He wore caftans on the daily, had a posse of celibate male hangers-on, his father was God but he more often professed his love for his mother, he had a prostitute for a hag. His final act on Earth was to throw a dinner party.
Not to mention how he so easily gave up working with his stepdad at the v.masc family business, to become a personal motivational speaker and showman, yet as far as we know he did not do this in order to fuck tons of young straight women who would no doubt have been obsessed with his flowing locks. He had a penchant for cleanliness and civil polite behaviour in an age not known for that.
Then there’s all that Xtian iconography—in Churches, dogmatic texts, on relics and murals—which depicts him half or mostly naked and muscular. And his reaction to that flogging by Pilate was kind of....uhhhh...hmmm. I’m just saying.

And not to be that guy, but...closeted rappers seem to have better flow? Maybe because of all that pent-up emotion and rage and vitriol (the foundation of rap as we know it)? I’m not condoning homophobia, but there does seem to be something to the theory. Don’t come for me, I’m just saying.

The truly courageous thing would have been to expose the ritual sex abuse in the rap game itself.

Listening to O.G. No Limit lately makes it clear to me—there has been a major drop-off in quality and ability of rappers, from the top of the tree to the bottom. Since the mid-2000s, talent has been lacking.

The song is number one in the UK on the official Top 40.

R501 well, the 14-16 year olds will be pleased.
Just went to look up what was #1 in the U.K. Top 40 in the April of my 14th year; it was ‘Beautiful Liar’, the collaboration track by Beyoncé & Shakira. Taking aside the faux-lesbian titillation video and the overblown melismatic duelling vocals, as pop/dance music goes “ it’s simply a better-produced and more accessible song with more melodic sound than ‘MONTERO’. This killed it in the clubs and on the radio, and it still has a catchy sexy Urban Latin feel that hasn’t dated badly at all.
2007 still has no room to talk r.e. trashy gritty attention-whoring chart-toppers, of course. I’m not implying that the industry or that celebrity artists are any worse today that they were then, just that composition and production of pop music used to be objectively and technically better.

This whole fiasco is so juvenile and silly. "I'm Satan! sliding a stripper pole to Hell!"

R504 true. There’s nothing objectively sexy, beautiful, cool or artistic about it. It’s just tacky “look at me!” horror-porno schlock. It’s on a level with Marilyn Manson.

It is sexy. I pop a boner every time I watch it. I want Lil Nas X and his sexy ass.
