Lil Nas X Revealed The Sad Reason He Denied Being A Nicki Minaj Fan — And Nicki Herself Responded
"I didn't want people to know I was gay tbh."
Lil Nas X just revealed on Twitter why he publicly denied being a Nicki Minaj fan for so long — and Nicki herself responded to his explanation.
But first, let's rewind a bit in case you're confused: Back in the day, Lil Nas X secretly ran a Nicki Minaj fan account on Twitter, @NasMaraj.
After rising to fame with his hit song "Old Town Road," some eagle-eyed fans started finding links between him and the @NasMaraj account — but Lil Nas X vehemently denied the rumors that he was behind it. Just last year, he told NPR that the rumors were "made up" and "disappointing":
It's like a big misunderstanding and it's not one that I even want to give the time, because I'm never putting someone as the face of my career. So I don't even speak on it. I just don't even acknowledge it, really. I know even more things are being made up and they're gonna be out there. It is disappointing when a big blog will post something without me talking about it but, I mean, it happens.
