It seems like social media have long been concerned with the romantic relationships of public figures. I can imagine during feudal Japan there were people whispering while working the fields that the Tokugawa Shogunate was going to get shaken to its core by the latest supposed relationship scandals between the emperor and his mistress.
So it’s only normal that fans would wonder if Lil Nas X is dating James Charles after they appeared in a video together.
Are They Dating or Not?
Lil Nas X shared that he would be getting his makeup done by the YouTube cosmetics guru, James Charles, which started a slew of rumours that the two stars were hooking up with one another. The rumours were mostly spurred on by the fact that both of them are 21 years old and that both are interested in men.
Lil Nas X responded to the tweets, writing,”Two gay men can do things together without ya’ll sexualizing it.”
Both men received a stream of comments from users on Twitter, IG, and YouTube asking them if they hooked up or were in a relationship with one another, despite Lil Nas X denying on Twitter that the two had engaged in anything other than an artistic collaboration.
Some of the fans comments were innocent, stating that the two looked cute together, while other fans engaged in commentary that was more negative
24 Hours after Lil Nas X responded to Republican Congressional candidate Angela King’s comments on his promo photo for “Holiday”, the online bullying started. The picture shows the rapper shirtless and leaning in to kiss his clone. The 43-year-old wrote, “So this is what black culture is pushing to our youth now? Sex with everything and everyone including yourself? Is Lil Nas X tonguing himself down?”
Lil Nas X responded with a short tweet, writing, “Just say [you’re] turned on and go,” and with delighted news for his fans and critics, the politician failed to secure herself a congressional seat after she ran against Democrat Nikema Williams, who won the election on Nov. 3, 2020 as the new U.S. representative-elect for Georgia’s 5th congressional district.
In 2019 the “Old Town Road” singer made headlines after he announced his sexuality to the world, but said he didn’t always plan on coming out. When he featured on “The Guardian” for an interview, he said that he once decided “to die with the secret” that he was gay.
The singer also said, “I don’t want to encourage them to do something they don’t 100 percent want to do. Especially in, like, middle school or high school because it’s just super hard. It’s easier for me, I’m not depending on anybody. There’s no one who’s going to kick me out of the house, nobody to start treating me s—-y.”
After Lil Nas X revealed his sexuality, he has been more and more outspoken against homophobic verbiage. After dressing up as Nicki Minaj from her “Super Bass” music video for halloween, Lil Nas X received a lot of backlash and criticism from social media platform users.
He tweeted in response to the criticism, “It’s Nov. 2 and grown men are waking up to have a group discussion about a costume I wore on Halloween.”
