Lil Nas X being Lil Nas X is why we love him so much. The American rapper just announced that he was expecting...his upcoming album and fans were sent into a frenzy while detractors called him names that we can't just write.

Shared on his social media where he has almost ten million followers, Lil Nax X posted three snaps where we can see him 'pregnant' in a white outfit with a crown of flowers. "SURPRISE!" he captioned the pics. "I can't believe I'm finally announcing this. My little bundle of joy ‘MONTERO' is due September 17, 2021." Just so you know, the album will include the likes of Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Miley Cyrus, and Elton John. It will also include previous singles "Industry Baby" and no. 1 hit "Montero (Call Me by Your Name)".


In fact, we must have seen it coming when days ago when the rapper posted a meme of Drake's latest album cover, Certified Lover Boy, replacing pregnant women with pregnant men instead. Nevertheless, people still complained. For example, we have comedian Donnell Rawlings who wrote: "I'm with freedom of whatever, but at this point, Lil Nas is fucking with the minds of kids. What are your thoughts, how do I explain this shit to my son?"

Another tweet added “Lil Nas X goes from one outlandish antics to the next. You will never see a white, Asian, Hispanic, or Arab equivalent to him in the entertainment industry. Those communities would not tolerate that crap. Black people sooner or later we are going to make an example out of black” At this point, we can acknowledge that the whole backlash is nonsense, and here is where Nas interfered. one day y’all will learn I am not a representation of anyone but Lil Nas X.

Anyway, talking about positive things. Lil Nas X revealed to People that he came up with the idea to do the shoot after listening to Megan Thee Stallion's verse on his new song "Dolla Sign Slime" for the first time. "I was like, 'Oh my God, this is amazing,' so I immediately called my stylist," he says. "She was like, 'Wow, this all comes together. Your album. Your baby.' I was like, 'Yeah, this is my baby, huh?' As a joke, she was like, 'Yeah, you should do a pregnancy shoot.'" "I was like, 'You know what? That's actually brilliant,'" he continued.

"So now we have this entire thing coming out, and it's going to be amazing." Lil Nas X says he also learned through the creation of this album "to have full faith in myself." "The only person that really has to believe in me is myself," he says. "It's been a lot of self-affirmations this year that I probably would not have been able to do two years ago."
