Lil Nas X Dresses as ‘Super Bass’ Nicki Minaj In Throwback Photo

Lil Nas X is a well-documented fan of Minaj’s. The rapper talked about stanning Minaj in his Billboard Hot 100-charting song, “Sun Goes Down.” In the melancholy track, he sings, “I’d be by the phone/ Stanning Nicki mornin’ into dawn/ Only place I felt like I belonged/ Strangers make you feel so loved, you know?” Initially, Lil Nas didn’t share that he was a Barb because he didn’t want people to think he was gay prior to him publicly coming out.

“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 explained to a fan who told him that “being a Barb doesn’t make you gay.”

Minaj caught wind of Lil Nas’ tweet and openly supported him for feeling comfortable enough to be his true self. “It was a bit of a sting when you denied being a barb, but I understand. Congratulations on building up your confidence to speak your truth. @LilNasX,” she wrote on Twitter.

“The generous queen, i love u. and i’m sorry i did that in a time where u were already getting so much bandwagon hate,” the 22-year-old replied. “i felt so bad, hoping u wouldn’t see my denial. i was just so afraid of people finding out about me and losing everything before i even got a chance.”
