Lil Nas X appeared to come out as gay in a post on World Pride day Sunday. Entertainment Tonight reports that the "Old Town Road" rapper tweeted, “Some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone [f**k with me] no more. But before this month ends I want y’all to listen closely to c7osure.” "C7osure (You Like)," is a new song on Das X’s 7 EP, and includes lyrics such as, "True say, I want and I need/ To let go, use my time to be free/ It's like it's always what you like/ It's always what you like/ Why it's always what you like?/ It's always what you like, uh.” In a second tweet, Das X added, “Deada** thought I made it obvious.”
