Lil Nas X doesn’t limit his fashion choices anymore! The 23-year-old rapper and artist has been edgy and showy when it comes to his personal style. From his gold suit of armor to his daring outfit changes, the ‘Montero’ star was a walking poster child for fearlessness and self-love.
In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Lil Nas X explained his definition of personal style.
Style is a form of self-expression. It’s a way of showing people who you are, or at least how you want them to perceive you. I want to move on in life, you have to shed your skin and do things you wouldn’t normally do.”
Still, Nas recently revealed that he had concerns about wearing a skirt in his hometown of Atlanta, where his family and loved ones would be there to watch him perform.
I was really nervous going on stage in front of my family and everyone in my cute little Coach skirt. But as soon as I walked out, I felt like I was liberating my younger self. Afterwards my family – many of whom used to believe in everything that happens on this stage – told me that they were really proud. I feel like I’m changing some minds.”
As usual, Lil Nas X put on an energetic and provocative show well worth paying for, but had a few hiccups at another tour stop. While preparing for his show in Boston, Nas said he was met by religious protesters holding signs that read “Jesus is God, even demons know” and “Repent and believe the gospel.”
Nas had one of his crew members offer the protesters pizza, which they refused.
One of the protesters was really cute and I reached out to him on Twitter but I haven’t heard from him. He’s either laughing or he’s having a really hard time in the group chat right now!”
