Just when you thought Lil Nas X has run out of shocking ideas to keep folks talking…he poses “pregnant” with a baby bump to promote his forthcoming debut album, Montero.
The 22-year-old rapper is no stranger to controversy and at this point he appears to embrace and crave it.
Lil Nas X told People he came up with the idea of doing a maternity shoot before delivering his “baby” on September 17 from Megan Thee Stallion’s verse on his new song, “Dolla Sign Slime.”
I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is amazing,’ so I immediately called my stylist. She was like, ‘Wow, this all comes together. Your album. Your baby.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, this is my baby, huh?’ As a joke, she was like, ‘Yeah, you should do a pregnancy shoot.’
I was like, ‘You know what? That’s actually brilliant.’ So now we have this entire thing coming out, and it’s going to be amazing.
