DeGeneres then complimented the rapper, calling him very “good looking.” Lil Nas X returned the compliment, before DeGeneres joked, “too bad we’re not right for each other.”
The artist also talked about the importance of coming out. He said he wanted to encourage others who may be struggling with their sexuality.
“It would be good for the youngins who are listening to me right now who will have to go through stuff like this in the future to know that it’s alright,” he said.
On the last day of Pride Month, Lil Nas X shared he was gay. He said there were hints in the cover art for his "7" EP, which includes a rainbow on one of the buildings. He also said there were some clues in his song "C7osure."
