VMAs 2019: Lil Nas X Takes a Victory Lap in High Style

Posted on August 27, 2019

We cannot love this little cowboy prince enough. He’s quietly making history by being wholly original, talented, admirably and hilariously laid back, tremendously (almost scarily) good at self-promotion, and aware of his place in history and culture at a level to an extent that makes him almost seem like a pop culture prodigy. All that while being the most fabulous newly out gay on the celebrity block. We have no choice but to stan.

 

 

It took Lil Nas X to take the classic Prince Rogers Nelson look and point out to everyone “You know this is really, really gay, right?” Prince gave his Edwardian neo-romantic style a decidedly hetero spin, but your man here is taking it to heretofore-unimagined levels of sparkle and dainty lace accents. Two crits from his fussy gay white uncles: it needs a belt and the silver boots bring it down a bit.

 

 

Absolutely flawless. Ride till you can’t no more, you fabulous little queer cowpoke.
