    Lil Nas X Shared His Dad's Reaction To His Controversial Music Video, And My Heart Is Full

    "Live life on your terms."

    In case you haven't heard, Lil Nas X just dropped a new music video for his song, "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)."

    It features the 21-year-old sliding down a pole all the way to hell, where he gives the devil a lap dance!

    And it's already sparked tons of controversy. Certain religious people are – YAWN – complaining online that it's Satan-worshipping and not for the eyes of children or whatever.

    Luckily, there's one person who doesn't care about any of that nonsense: Lil Nas X's dad, Robert!

    The singer tweeted a screenshot of a text his father sent him after watching the vid, and it made my heart smile. "Live life on your terms. Very PROUD of you," it said.
