Lil Nas X Tweeted About Fans Asking For Him To Be Given The Same Attention As Harry Styles For His Fashion

"Stop using me as a bait against Harry Styles."

So, the Grammys were this past weekend — and plenty of people were obsessed with Harry Styles' Clueless-inspired look.

However, as Harry was praised for breaking gender norms once again, some wondered why the same praise hadn't been afforded to other celebs — specifically, Lil Nas X.

Indeed, numerous people took to Twitter to voice their opinions:

One person said, "Harry Styles really do be putting on a feather boa and y'all be like "king of fashion"...babe it's been said a million times but lil nas x RIGHT THERE
One person commented, "lil nas x dresses better than harry styles but you lot aren't ready to have that conversation"

This isn't the first time the amount of attention Harry's style receives has been criticized — for one, his Vogue cover was critiqued for "centering a white, cisgender man in a movement largely founded by transgender people of color."

Well, it looks like Lil Nas X has seen at least some of these posts — because he tweeted about it himself.
