Lil Nas X just dropped his new music video "MONTERO" and is unapologetic with the visuals.
He also penned his 14 year old a letter to go along with the video in which he said,
"Dear 14-year-old Montero, I wrote a song with our name in it, It’s about a guy I met last summer." Lil Nas X first came out on June 30, 2019, the last day of Pride Month.
He continued, "I know we promised to never come out publicly, I know we promised to never be ‘that’ type of gay person, I know we promised to die with the secret, but this will open doors for many other queer people to simply exist."
He went on to acknowledge that he fully expects some people to react poorly, and that it's a little scary to even release the video.
"People will be angry, they will say I’m pushing an agenda," he penned. "But the truth is, I am. The agenda to make people stay the f–k out of other people’s lives and stop dictating who they should be."
Check out the video below and the letter and let us know what you think.
