Lil Nas X no longer puts limits on his fashion choices! The 23-year-old rapper and artist has come out and shown when it comes to his personal style. From his golden armor to his daring outfit changes, the ‘Montero’ star has been a walking poster of bravery and self-love.
In a recent interview with PEOPLELil Nas X explained his definition of personal style.
Style is a form of self-expression. It’s a way of showing people who you are, or at least how you want to be perceived. I feel like going further in life, you have to shed your skins and do things you normally wouldn’t.”
However, Nas recently revealed that he was concerned about wearing a skirt in his hometown of Atlanta, where his family and loved ones would be around to see him perform.
I was so nervous about going onstage in front of my family and everyone in my cute little Coach skirt. But as soon as I got out, I felt like I was releasing my younger self. Afterward, my family, many of whom believed the opposite of what was on that stage, told me how proud they were. I feel like I’m changing some minds.”
As usual, Lil Nas X put on an energetic and provocative show that is well worth paying for, but he had some hiccups at another stop on the tour. While preparing for his show in Boston, Nas said he was greeted by religious protesters holding signs that read “Jesus is God, even the devils know” and “Repent and believe the Gospel.”
Nas had one of his crew members offer pizza to the protesters, which they refused.
One of the protesters was really cute and I called him out on Twitter but haven’t heard from him. Either he’s laughing or he’s having a hard time in the group chat right now!”
