Lil Nas X tries to let negative comments roll off his shoulders after posting photos of himself flaunting an artificial baby bump to promote his upcoming album—Montero. The whole thing can either be seen as a stroke of genius or madness, however, it did not let the 22-year-old American musician escape from the negative comments which he thought to be responsible for spreading negative energy.
He further joked that it is not good for the baby, referencing the photos.
According to Lil Nas X, also known as Montero Lamar Hill, the touch of pregnancy is a mere representation of him expecting his album (Montero) which is due for release on the 17th of September. He further explained that the whole idea about a pregnancy photoshoot to promote his album was conceived when he talked about his album with his stylist, after listening to some of Megan Thee Stallion‘s verses on Dolla Sign Slime.
Lil Nas X thought that the whole thing was brilliant and that it all comes together. His album was his baby and nothing is more perfect than a pregnancy photoshoot.
On Thursday, Lil Nas X took the internet and social media by storm. His promotional pregnancy photos shook Twitter and left Lil Las X with a few hateful comments. One comment remarks how Lil Nas X is being ugly, and he responded with his signature humour, asking the commenter if he is serious about calling a mother-to-be ugly.
The young Black American artist then announced that he will be getting off for a while, noting that negative energy from the hateful comments. However, he continued on retweeting tweets from fans and supporters who showed love. One fan wrote that boys have been inserting basketballs under their shirts just to look pregnant since 1891.
Another supporter tweeted about reacting too much to Lil Nas X photos while being perfectly okay while watching pregnant Cosmo, the male fairy from The Fairly OddParents.
According to Lil Nas X, Montero, the baby he is expecting on the 17th of September has been conceived during the lockdown days. He further added that the whole process of creating the album has been therapeutic for him. He then remarked how he had changed and learned how to handle situations differently now.
