“i have this song i want u on and was wondering….” he wrote in response to a video she uploaded.

When asked by one fan why he never owned up to being part of the Barbz, the name of Nicki Minaj‘s fanbase, in the past, he responded: “i didn’t want people to know i was gay tbh.”

If you didn’t know, it was widely speculated and generally known that Lil Nas X was the owner of a Nicki Minaj fan account called @nasmaraj, although he never formally acknowledged it until now.

When someone countered that being a Nicki fan doesn’t make you gay, he said: “it don’t but people will assume if you had an entire fan page dedicated to nicki u are gay. and the rap/music industry ain’t exactly built or accepting of gay men yet.”

Lil Nas X came out as gay during Pride last year.

He recently revealed what he’s been up to in quarantine.
