Nas X is the first rapper to feature an all-Black ghey male cast twerking in his music video. Such a spectacle would not have been possible 20 years ago.

Some parents objected to Nas X being promoted to their children. Nas X has a large following of children and adolescents who buy his books and music.

Here's how Black Twitter responded to the music video:

Music icon Patti LaBelle showed support for Lil Nas X after he was harshly criticized for kissing one of his male dancers during the 2021 BET Awards.

The openly ghey rapper sparked controversy for the provocative kiss following his performance of "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)" last month.

Critics, including Benzino, called out the one-hit rapper for his same-sex kiss.

However, Patti LaBelle insists Nas X should ignore his critics and continue to live his best life as an out-and-proud star.

Appearing on SiriusXM satellite radio show Urban View, she said:

"I am really understanding now that people understand people have to live their lives the way they need to live. Sometimes it's not bad to be yourself. It's always good to be yourself and let the chips fall, but don't be afraid and stay in the closet for the rest of your life.

"Lil Nas X came out, he kissed the man on the BET Awards, and it was what he wanted to do. Does that make him a bad person? No, he did himself. I say keep on doing you..."

The "Lady Marmalade" pop legend went on to accuse critics of ignoring Lil Nas X's musical talent, and she expressed her support for the "Old Town Road" country-trap rapper.

"Don't blow out someone's candle so yours can light brighter," she chastised his haters.

"Don't dim anybody, just give the stage and the audience what you have. There's room for everybody, too. Some people are intimidated by certain people and there is no need to be. Just do you, and don't step on anybody's toes, just do you and God will bless you."

Only three formal complaints were filed with officials at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), according to TMZ.

JoJo Siwa says she's the "happiest" she's "ever been" since coming out as part of the LGBT+ community.

She is pictured above at her Sweet 16 birthday party with guests (L-R) Ryan Romulus, North West, Penelope Disick and a friend in April 2019.

The 17-year-old dancer, singer, actress, and YouTube personality, born Joelle Joanie Siwa, has built a career around her public image of an ageless pre-teen wearing colorful hair bows and rainbow clothing.

Her catchy songs include "Boomerang" and "Kid in a Candy Store," and she appeared on "Dance Moms" for two seasons along with her mother, Jessalyn Siwa.

JoJo sparked rampant speculation when she began dropping hints on social media that suggested she was planning to come out of the closet - including wearing a "best gay cousin ever" T-shirt and lip-syncing along to Lady Gaga's hit song "Born This Way."

On Saturday, Jan. 23, she went live on Instagram to tell her pre-teen fans:

"Personally, I have never, ever, ever been this happy before and it feels really awesome. I've been happy for a little bit now. It's just so, so, so awesome. You guys probably haven't seen me this happy since I was on tour."

JoJo stopped short of giving herself a label, instead identifying as simply "part of" the LGTB+ community.

"The reason I'm not going to say this answer is because I don't really know this answer. I think humans are awesome, I think humans are really incredible people," she explained. "Right now, I'm super-duper happy and I want to share everything with the world, but I also want to keep things in my life private until they are ready to be public.”

Parents of JoJo's adolescent fans were skeptical about her coming out party. Many believe she is simply hopping on the LGBT+ bandwagon because her career as an adolescent singer and dancer is fading fast.

Lil Nas X appeared to confirm longstanding rumors about R&B crooner Usher Raymond. The one-hit wonder revealed his celebrity crush on the "Burning Questions" segment of the virtual Ellen DeGeneres Show this week.

The 21-year-old dressed up as a futuristic Santa Clause to promote his recently released Christmas-themed single, "Holiday."

He named BTS as his favorite boyband; "Miami" by Nicki Minaj as his favorite song, and Doja Cat as his "dream collaboration."

But when asked who he crushed on as a young boy struggling with his sexuality, Nas X held back before coughing up Usher's name.

Social media speculated that this was Nas X's subtle way of outing Usher, 42, who has long battled ghey rumors since he was mentored by Sean "Puffy" Combs, who moved the young singer into his home in the 1990s.

Gospel singer Darrel Walls deleted his Instagram page after a man he was intimate with leaked a video of them kissing.

According to Lovebscott.com, Walls initially shared the video to his close friends list on Instagram. But his lover apparently shared the video on his public Instagram feed, sparking an uproar among Darrel's gospel fans.

Darrel's female fans were particularly distraught over the news. But others were supportive.

"I love you Darrel Walls PERIIIOOOODDD!!! And you KNOW that ain't NEVER gonna change!!!" one person wrote on Darrel's Facebook page.

B. Scott said Darrel deactivated his IG page then reactivated it. Dallas-based journalist Shakari S. Briggs called Darrel's involuntary outing "sad" and "tragic."

"The sad part about the Darrel Walls situation is the other man making the decision to post the video of them in such an intimate setting. Darrel clearly hasn’t let the world know his stance on his sexuality, so why did the guy feel compelled to do it for him? Tragic."

The Black church frowns upon homosexuality. The church believes in the philosophy "Love the sinner, hate the sin."

Darrel is the eldest member of the Walls family gospel group.

Ricky Martin is saddened that his fellow Latinos will be voting for U.S. President Donald Trump at the polls on Nov. 3.

The former Puerto Rican child star launched his solo pop career in 1991 after aging out of the Latino boy band Menudo.

The "Livin' La Vida Loca" singer admits he knows Latinos who will be among those trying to get Trump elected for another term, and he thinks they are "super sad".

"I am a Latino, gay (and) married to an Arab living in Trump's America," he told Variety. "We check all the (progressive) boxes."

The father of four posed with life partner Jwan Yosef and their 12-year-old twins Matteo and Valentino at a movie premiere in 2016.

"I think there is a lot of Hispanics who will vote him out [sic]. Trumpeters make a lot of noise. And it's scary to see their enthusiasm but us, we're doing what's right, the right way and we'll see what happens in November. I'm very optimistic."

The 48-year-old continued: "This is the moment. We all need to get together and be loud about the course of this nation."

Martin recently introduced Trump's challenger, Joe Biden, during a Hispanic heritage event in Florida.

"I've been supporting Biden forever," the hitmaker says on an upcoming episode of the Variety and iHeart podcast "The Big Ticket." "I think he is the only option we have and he is great and he has been in politics all his life. This is the moment. We all need to get together and be loud about the course of this nation."

Martin added: "I think when you have 50 million people voting already, it's because we are not the only ones concerned about this and for that I am extremely happy. We just take it one day at a time and we've had plans like we might leave the country, but no. We have to stay here and we have to fight for our rights and what we believe."

Democrats received a setback last night when Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court. She was sworn in by Chief Justice Clarence Thomas at the White House.

Barrett filled the seat of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, giving the SCOTUS a 6-3 conservative majority for the first time since the Ronald Reagan era.

Rapper Lil Baby got into a heated debate with Rolling Stone writer Charles Holmes, after the journalist insisted, "Black people can't be racist."

The 25-year-old rapper, who topped the U.S. Billboard 200 with his second album My Turn earlier this year, was discussing police corruption and systemic racism with Holmes.

The two men discussed a line in his song "The Bigger Picture,", "Corrupted police been the problem where I'm from / But I'd be lying if I said it was all of them."

Holmes said there can't be "good police in a fundamentally flawed and racist system".

But Lil Baby disagreed: "Just 'cause you work in a racist system doesn't mean you racist."

"Damn near every system that got a job is a racist system. You know what I mean?" said the rapper, real name Dominique Armani Jones.

"CEOs be like old white people. You never know, they got to be some kind of racist 'cause at some certain age... that was the way of life almost. So I almost feel like all these corporations or whatnot may be racist. And black people are racist too."

"Black people can't be racist," the writer said in disagreement, prompting Baby to respond, "Why? Racist means to be just to your race."

Holmes explained: "Well, the thing about racism is you would have to have some type of power, and Black people, historically speaking, don't have any power to be racist. We can be prejudiced."

"To me, a racist is someone who treats a different race than theirs a different way than they would treat theirs," the "Drip Too Hard" rapper said.

"I feel like if you're a black person and you treat all black people one way and all white people one way, you're racist. I'm not a racist, so I give a white person a chance to talk and actually we get into it before I can say I don't like you or not."

He added: "I feel the same way about a black person. You ain't gon' be my buddy just 'cause you're black. Just straight up."

In unrelated news, Lil Baby dropped aspiring rapper 42 Dugg from his 4PF label after the rapper dropped what sounds like a homosexual reference on a track.

It sounds like the rapper says: "I was out here suckin' d**k / I was tryna pay the rent."

But after the backlash on Twitter, 42 Dugg clarified the lyrics, tweeting: "HOES OUT HERE SUCKIN D**K… I WAS TRYNA PAY HER RENT."

But fans aren't convinced that's what he said on the track. Listen below and decide for yourself (if you care).

Insiders say this West Coast socialite recently broke up with her boyfriend after she found out he was keeping company with another man.

Sources say the former model, who once dated an A-list rap and fashion mogul, caught her man slipping earlier this year.

She booted him from their home but he reportedly pleaded with her to take him back. So she did.

But friends continued to blow up her cellphone with photos, receipts and other evidence that he wasn't where he said he would be -- he was at another man's home instead.

The single mother reportedly told a friend she has her children to think about, particularly during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Diva unfollowed her former lover on social media and posted cryptic messages that seemed to confirm the rumors.

This former reality TV star is no stranger to same-sex relationships. She once dated a butch stud who could pass for her ex-boyfriend's twin sister.
