Lil Nas X revealed what most already knew in a coming out post on Instagram over the weekend. The country trap star celebrated the end of Pride Month with a big reveal on social media.

The 20-year-old directed his 1.3 million Twitter followers to listen to one of the tracks on his recently released EP 7 album.

"some of y'all already know, some of y'all don't care, some of y'all not gone [gonna] fwm [f--k with me] no more. but before this month ends i want y'all to listen closely to c7osure," he tweeted.

The lyrics on "c7osure" are vague and not immediately obvious of the message he was trying to convey.

"I know, I know, I know it don't feel like it's time / But I look back at this moment, I'll see that I'm fine."

As the news spread, the rapper's Twitter followers were initially supportive of his chosen lifestyle, but country music purists flamed his timeline with hateful tweets.

"deadass thought i made it obvious," Nas wrote in a follow-up Tweet that featured images of his rainbow cover art.

Many of his 2.8 million Instagram.com followers locked horns with anti-homosexual IG users who taunted Nas X with insults.

"you gonna katch [sic] aids tryna be gay," wrote one Instagram follower. Another user wrote: "'Ride till i can't no more' I mean can't lie that was pretty [suspect]," referring to the lyrics in Lil Nas X's No. 1 hit song, "Old Town Road".

A third user wrote: "Look at all the homophobes."

"Can't nobody tell me nothinnnn," Nas wrote in an Instagram post under a bathroom mirror selfie.

Nas's single "Old Town Road" continues to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the 13th straight week.

  • onelove

    old news...my daughter told me a long time ago!..Good for him! let him live..

  • onelove

    It's because i'm sure someone was about to tell...so he did it before they could..

  • RiDONKulous

    I remember when he was sending his nudes to every tom deek and Harry and duhhhh he was a Nikki stan so ofc he's gay lol reason why he came out cos so many people were threatening to expose him so...

  • CookieMobster

    I got a notification from TMZ about this at 2:45 a.m. I don't know why, but I had disturbing dreams all night of him taking his own life. Needless to say, I didn't sleep every well. I said let the man live. This doesn't effect how much I love that song. BUT, he should've just kept that mess to himself. Why do folks feel,the,need to announce this mess?

  • WutizstillHERE!

    He said he was gay off top when the song first came out. Who missed that ish?!

  • CookieMobster

    Also... I read it 1st here on Sandra Rose a long time ago. I gave Auntie the side eye ? but I'll learn one day to listen. I thought that last night when I saw this. #?

  • WutizstillHERE!

    I remember Sandra's initial write up mentioning he was gay..so where's the shock n aww?

  • Alextra Ballard

  • xxxgracious

    Before he was famous he ran a Nicki Minaj fan page. Once I heard that I figured he had a lil sugar in his tank...

  • Chicagowise

    He has how many followers online?! I've never heard of him! I guess I'm officially old.

  • oshh16

    I have nothing for this......The Bobby Debarge story was so sad.

    Big Little Lies, um Meryl has made me hate her character, she was the root of Perry's many, many issues.

    Euphoria is a trip trip.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Well good for him, he only confirmed what people had already suspected ..now he can go ahead a live his truth and hopefully folks can now stop questioning his sexuality.

  • EasyBreezy

    *Yawn* Happy, healthy Monday, Roses! It is a short week for me (and you too, I hope).

  • smartchickfl

  • Russiancreme

    Forget the tea, Auntie has the juice. She has dropped many tidbits over the years that be accurate. I've learned to just accept her process.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I tried to open picture uploads back up but the spammers started posting porn again. Sorry.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The porn spammers noticed the picture button, too. They were happy right along with you. ? I think they get paid for every porn post they make. ?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I think we all knew when the barbs found out he was NasMaraj...last time I checked I dont know too many straight men who are Nicki Minaj stans...He always gave me Reverse-Bottom tease anyway...

  • finallymadeitn

    One twin is going to end up like his daddy

  • oshh16

    Esp if Mary Louise gets custody. Celeste being so accommodating and apologetic at first was infuriating.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Do you Boo! Seems like the AGENDA is working so...?????

  • chan chan

    Help my slow ass out. When did he say it.

  • finallymadeitn

    Absolutely, Celeste should have never let her in. I think Mary Louise is going to get the boys. I think Bonnie is going to snitch or tell her mom.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    I been saying this since he dropped. Right here. No biggie.

  • Carrington

    I didn't see that coming but, honestly, I never heard of him before that song and have no interest in hearing from him after the novelty has worn off.
    Good luck though, bro. Hopefully your newfound fans won't abandon you now that your song will sound "different" to them. *side eye*

  • Carrington

    I've read "reverse bottom" 30 times and I can't figure out what that means...

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    That's right.. GAIN AND GARNER FOLLOWERS Then make the announcement! JUSSIE inb reverse... Lee Daniels not to come knocking to capitalize and spread buttNEW$ I mean getUP-IN I mean further promote the agenda! FOH

  • Gloria

    This isn’t surprising. I thought this was known news. He did run that Nicki Minaj fan page after all lol

  • Alextra Ballard

    His song has been at #1 forever....with him”coming out” will it drop from the #1spot

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    True, this could hurt his career, but if his next song or album is fire I think people will still listen to it. I don't think they'll care too much about the gay stuff. At the end of the day I think people just want music that sounds good

  • Gowns. Beautiful Gowns

    is that surprising? is it?

  • Gowns. Beautiful Gowns

    i said this on IG yesterday...glad he came out

  • PrettyMeka08

    Maybe, but that lifestyle not taboo in the major US cities anymore. The only time it’s a problem is if someone is not being straightforward & truthful in relationships, thus not giving the other partner the opportunity to choose how or if he or she wants to proceed with the relationship.

  • chan chan

    He could’ve kept that.

  • PrettyMeka08

    It sure has been ar#1 for a while. Maybe with announcement he will gain more exposure to other audiences.

  • KLove

    And we needed to know this because??

  • pure_rachet

    The country trap star celebrated the end of his career with a big reveal on social media.
    -fixed that for you.

  • Ni Ni

    He's always looked like he tastes the rainbow ?

  • Carrington

    I know this is immature, particularly for a man of a certain age... but bro bro is ug and LEE. Oh my DAMN. Who gone gowiddeem?

  • tia

    Maybe it's a weight lifted off of him now? Or maybe he feels it will boost his career? I know one thing, Queen Latifah, Missy Elliot and many others have not succumbed to the pressures of announcing who they prefer in bed. Maybe because they're OG's?? People been gay.

    At this point, the announcement of coming "out" has gotten old. To me, that person just wants "favor" with the alphabet mob community. Someone pumped him up to do it. He doesn't get brownie points.

  • cleopatra04

    More like the rainbow tasted him. There are so many men who are now openly gay and were sexually abused as children. Some will admit it and some won't.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Are you serious?
    You know some hootrat hoochie is like dang I can't get knocked up with his child and have a good life for at least the next 18 years.

  • Carrington

    One thing I know for CERTAIN about the people who think gay people should remain in the closet and not announce their candidacy to run for Mayor of the gays... these are mostly the SAME people who sit their asses around talking about, "I don't have a problem with gay people (except for the fact that they're gay)... the ones I have a problem with are the ones who don't tell US who they are. Just be yourself. Why you gotta hide?"
    And, the same people who've spent years on social media pointing fingers at any male celeb with a edge up too sharp, who smiles too often, because he's "suspect" so, either you're in or you're out. If they keep their business to themselves, you speculate and have a problem with it. If they come out of the closet you need to know why you needed to know. SMH

  • https://nylapoprush.com/twitch twitch.tv/NylaPop

    If you care, upvote this.

    I expect not to see a single upvote on this post.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You think he only has fans in major cities?
    And he's dealing with black females so yeah it's best be upfront before they project their fantasies onto him.

  • tia

    So basically, it seems like its damn if you or damn if you don't.

  • Vonda K

    This reminds me Ricky Martin came out as gay......stating the obvious. Lil Ana’s is sweeter than cotton candy.

  • MsSapphire9800

    I could definitely tell from his old military pics...

  • MsSapphire9800

    What military pics...that child has never been in the military...maybe HS ROTC.

  • tia

    Yes indeed

  • Ms. Cree

    Actually it was JrROTC, lol

  • Ms. Cree
  • Christopher Gibson

    I personally do not like or understand the whole "coming out" thing, but even with all of the recent attention being brought to the LGBT community, it is still seen as taboo within the Black community; especially for black men. Someone may have been threatening him or holding it over his head now that he's become so known and popular so quickly. Maybe he felt the need to put it out there himself.

  • stav

    Rewarded for any and everything that goes against God.

  • Bree

    If a person comes out saying s/he is Christian, stones are thrown, but when an alleged homosexual "comes out", we rejoice. This world is really screwed up. I remember there was a time when people who were fighting demons would come to the altar and repent. Now folks no longer fight demons, they join forces with them.

  • Ryan

    So this is how we start the day on Mr. Al Gore's internet? lol

    Realest post of the month and it just started!

  • rockstar2142

    Ricky Martin was a total surprise but I was a kid so maybe that’s why.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    We Don't scream out what we do in the bedroom on our jobs!! I Don't need to hear about others. It doesn't involve Me. Are they guilty,

  • rockstar2142

    ?

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    He kept it long enough to get that money.

  • rockstar2142

    Right! Don’t remember that one.

  • rockstar2142

    Hip hop is not very gay friendly so I wonder how this will effect his career.

  • bemetoo

    Well his career is over just like that fat gay guy who did a song with drake “ going up on a Tuesday “?

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Right, we don't announce our bedroom whatever on our jobs

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I'm not sure that all of these folk have known they were gey from an early age.
    I think there is a large number of people who have been rejected[because of their looks] or misused by the opposite s3x so often that they believe something must be different/unworthy about them and that they must be gey.
    Then they find their own gender as understanding and accepting of them and conclude that they were gey all along.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    The thing is Why Now. Someone must have a video or hard material on him. If he felt comfortable, why not make this statement in the beginning, since he felt it is necessary now. Which to me it wasn't. I prefer Not knowing about your s.x life, unless it involves Me.

  • Candance

    If he needed to come out to be his happy self, then good for him.
    I like the song and I was proud of this young man breaking a country music boundary. Whats funny is he wasn't accepted by the country music people but hip hop accepts everybody. I hope this young guy continues to do his thing and live his best life.

  • Gloria

    I’m sorry but what? Who in America is being stoned for being a Christian? It’s the top religion in this country.

    Yes that is all. Who he chooses to have sex with is none of our bidness.

  • Bree

    Amen.

  • imright

    ok....

  • imright

    hes not hip hop

  • Yup, I said it

    Like the women who have 10 kids by 12 different men and then decide after all that heartbreak they are lesbians. Chile. So many people will date whomever is available male or female because they don't want to be alone. There are people who are truly born gay and then there are those who genuinely are just confused or greedy or whatever.

  • Yup, I said it

    Demons. We celebrate even more when someone announces they are trans and were born in the wrong body. But let a muthafucka say they were born in the wrong race and should be a white man. ?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    "will date whomever is available "
    I think a lot of people fall into this category. They date whoever shows interest.
    I'm just not sure what they do after they've been burned by both male AND female. Maybe they go Trans...

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Thanks 4 the info.
    Wendy has the weirdest looking body!! But you Go Wendy l0l!

    It was pretty clear with "ride it til i can't no more" and "I'm going to take my horse to the old town road" The old twon road a secret place to meet for sex.

    Personally I don’t care about his sexuality or his music. I do respect his hustle. ?
    Shouldn’t take away from his talent or character.

  • Blak

    The fact that he started out as a Nikki Minaj stan on social media makes it incredibly obvious that he's gay...there should have been absolutely no questions about that

  • che’lint

    This comment might upset people. I find it vulgar to find out someone is ghey. I really don't care have fun in your life. But I don't need to know. Because I instantly cannot help, once I know and depending on who tells me, all I can think about is they like to either slob the knob or munch the carpet. My mind immediately goes to that. Their life is about their sexual lifestyle, right? So my wicked mind goes immediately to the bedroom scene. imo

  • TransMichelle

    The new face of liberal black men. Like I wrote before, they push the lowest common denominator on black folks. And we're ALWAYS the worse off.

  • softness1

    Water is wet... now what??? I thought that was a given.. He was in the closet??? When

  • softness1

    Do you!! I don't understand how people are upset over this. Is he fucking your man?? I don't really care what others do in their bed. If that's the case should I be concerned at what heteros are doing?? Pple love to push their ideas on others.. Unless whatever someone is doing is affecting me, I pretty much do not care... Then people quote scripture, but leave out the rest of scripture condemning adultery and all the rest of the sins.. People hating gays but then they're twerking or cheating on their spouse...They legit have whore marches where women are denouncing slut shaming...smh...So it's okay to fuck a ten of the worlds population, but to be gay is blasphemous... I can't... It's not for me personally but I don't care who does it..Live your life
