However, one celebrity is not on board with Lil Nas’s decision to come out as gay. Young Thug, 27, believed he should have kept his sexuality private. He explained while giving an interview on No Jumper’s Adam 22.
“I feel like he probably shouldn’t have told the world. He shouldn’t have told the world. These days, motherf****s, it’s just all judgment. Motherf****rs is just judging. It ain’t even about the music no more.”
He further added, “Once you found out he was gay, as soon as the song come on now, everybody like, ‘This gay-ass n-gga.’ N-ggas don’t even care to listen to the song no more… It’s just like, to certain people, you know what I’m saying?…”
“I just feel like he young, and backlash can come behind anything. [Coming out] wasn’t a bad idea, and it was most definitely the best time to do it, during Pride.”
In addition, he shared, “That was the best time to do it. That was a G’s move. But he young, and I know he going to be dealing with it in his mind. I dealt with this sh-t before. I know what he dealing with. So I was like, ‘F-ck, he should have never said that, never should have told them’.”
He also expressed that he admired the 20-year-old rapper, “I really f-ck with Lil Nas X. He already showed me the most respect by saying that I inspired him. So I ain’t even caring to get in his way. I want him to get, like, a trillion dollars. I want him to get more money than me.”
Watch the interview below:
“It’s something that, you know, I was considering never doing, ever. Just taking it to the grave or something. But I don’t wanna live my entire life, especially how I got to where I’m at not doing what I wanna do.”
In addition, he talked about dealing with the hatred online, “Learning the internet over the past couple of years, I used to be that person being negative. So, it’s like, I’m not angry or anything because I understand how they just want that reaction.”
Furthermore, he revealed, “But I’m just going to joke back with them.”
