Ever since dropping his camero-filled video for Old Town Road, Lil Nas X has definitely had our attention where music videos are concerned. His new effort, the official video for "Panini," is a neon-purple hued homage to Blade Runner, and perhaps early-aughts videos like Shania's video for "I'm Gonna Getcha Good!" Wherever the inspiration was derived, the video is definitely a fun respite from our responsibilities, and probably yours too.

Lil Nas X Just Came Out As Gay & Twitter Is Sharing Support

Lil Nas X, of "Old Town Road" and "Panini" fame, came out as gay in a series of cryptic messages on the last day of Pride month. The genre-defying rapper tweeted last night that people should listen more closely to "C7osure." The lyrics are decidedly bent on living ones truth, and make a whole lot of sense now that the rapper has opened up about his sexuality.

"Ain't no more actin', man that forecast say I should just let me grow
No more red light for me, baby, only green, I gotta go
Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take a hold
This is what I gotta do, can't be regretting when I'm old"

In addition to demystifying the lyrics of "C7osure," Lil Nas X pointed out the cover artwork for his EP "7" in a tweet that reads "deadass thought i made it obvious." The rainbow-centric artwork makes a lot of sense now. 

The response to the liberating announcement has been overwhelmingly positive, with fans and allies tweeting enthusiastic support for Lil Nas X. People are even roasting anyone that would have an issue with his coming out. We're 100% with the star and can't wait to see how he continues to be a walking argument for individuality.

The "Old Town Road" rapper reportedly "accidentally" used the melody to "In Bloom" by Nirvana in the chorus, which he's since officially credited to Kurt Cobain. Now the only thing that would make this song better is if it were longer...

The unlikely duo has just dropped this very entertaining video for the hit, complete with Western vibes, cowboy fashion, and even Chris Rock. We just want to know where we can cop some of those very bedazzled and fringe-heavy threads.
