A few days back, Lil Nas X announced that he is pregnant with his new album ‘Montero’ and shared a photo of him with a small ‘baby bump’. The photos of him showing a faux baby bump quickly took the internet by storm.
Sharing a selection of photos first published by People magazine which reveal the 22-year-old’s fake pregnancy bump, Nas wrote on Twitter: “SURPRISE! I can’t believe I’m finally announcing this. My little bundle of joy “MONTERO” is due September 17, 2021.”
Nas also put up a video of himself cradling his pretend baby bump and smiling into the camera.
Many fans applauded him for his creativity and unorthodox way, but some reacted quite negatively to the photos and his videos. The 22-year-old rapper (real name Montero Lamar Hill) clapped back at the hateful comments about his album pregnancy photoshoot.
Nas reacted by retweeting a tweet reading, ‘’I really tired of Lil Nas .. his ugly a** too much … fkn roach.’’ Reacting to it, the singer wrote, “you really on here calling a young mother to be ugly?”
Another Twitter user tweeted, ‘’Dr Umar said they will use LGBTQ to distract us from black civil rights and then they birthed Lil nas x who is just a puppet for whatever label he is signed to.’’
The rapper responded, ‘’oh yes a pregnant n***a, the greatest threat to black civil rights.’’ Another troll wrote that Lil Nax goes from “one outlandish antic to the next” and that “you will never see a white, Asian, Hispanic or Arab equivalent to him in the entertainment industry” because they would not “tolerate” actions like this.
Lil Nas X hit back, writing, “one day y’all will learn I am not a representation of anyone but lil nas x.”
After responding to several negative comments, Lil tweeted, “let me get offline, all of this negative energy is not good for the baby.”
Meanwhile, later, the rapper took to his Instagram and posted more pictures showing him ‘pregnant.’ The rapper captioned his post, “2 WEEKS UNTIL BABY MONTERO ARRIVES, what are u guys bringing to the baby shower?’’
