Lil Nas X Explains What Led to His Wardrobe Malfunction on 'Saturday Night Live'

Lil Nas X is getting real about his hilarious mishap on Saturday Night Live!

The 22-year-old superstar made his debut as the musical guest during the season finale of the NBC sketch comedy series on Saturday (May 22).

During his performance of his hit song “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” Lil Nas started doing some pole dancing when he started covering his crotch. He later revealed on Twitter that his pants had suddenly ripped on stage.

In an appearance on The Tonight Show, the rapper told host Jimmy Fallon exactly what led to his wardrobe malfunction.

See what he said inside…

“So, I was pretty much going down the pole, you know, doing my little sexy drop down,” Lil Nas X explained. “And boom — I feel air!”

“I was like, ‘Okay, there’s definitely a breeze going on,’” he continued. “And I also felt some popping still happening when I was down there.”

He then revealed that in addition to his wardrobe malfunction there had been another big challenge that happened in the lead up to his performance.

“One day before the performance, one of the dancers catches COVID right?” he shared. “And then all the dancers have to—we can’t seem them anymore. And plus, we can’t see the choreographer in person anymore. [...] They’re still in their hotel right now.”

He gave a shout out to the dancers who were able to perform the song with him onstage, who were only given 24 hours to prepare.

Lil Nas also reacted to the moment his pants ripped on Instagram. Check out the video!
