(AllHipHop News) Lil Nas X has announced he is dating, after coming out as gay this summer.
The “Old Town Road” rapper, 20, sat down for a conversation with Ellen DeGeneres Show and declared he was “somewhat” dating.
“I’m in a new level so it doesn’t really matter,” he said.
Nas added that he hopes his coming out story will let his young fans “who are gonna have to go through stuff like this in the future.”
Nas, real name Montero Lamar Hill, has previously said he came out so fast after finding fame because he wanted to emphasize to fans that it’s fine to be gay.
“It’s not like I was being forced,” he said on HBO talk show “The Shop: Uninterrupted.” “It’s just like knowing growing up, I’m growing up to hate this s##t… Homosexuality, gay people…
“If, for me, the cool dude with the song on top of everything, to say this at any other time, I’m doing this for attention… But if you’re doing this while you’re at the top, you know it’s for real. It’s showing it doesn’t really matter, I guess.”
