Lil Nas X has found love with “someone specia.l”
The openly gay rapper has revealed he has a new boyfriend after dating several “emotionally unavailable” men in the past.
“I’ve had some good boyfriends and some bad ones,” he tells Variety. “A lot of them were emotionally unavailable or had a lot of insecurity and whatnot. I’ve found someone special now. I think this is the one. I can’t explain it – it’s just a feeling.”
Nas also opened up on discovering he was gay when he was five, after he realized he had a crush on his half-sister’s cousin.
He explains, “I was like, ‘Oh, my God, he’s really cute’, and thought that about a lot of other boys my age.”
But the “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” hitmaker didn’t get into his first committed relationship until he turned 18.
“Before that, there was a guy who wasn’t my boyfriend, but we met in middle school and we talked, after we both found out that each other were gay. But I didn’t act on anything until high school… Once I was 17 or 18, I finally accepted it… slowly, more and more, and now I’ve grown into a person that is 100 per cent open with it.”
He explained at the time, “I’m dating someone right now. We’re not in a relationship yet, but it’s been on and off for the past few months. I’m maybe going to try to go steady this time.”
