Last month, the star was late for the premiere of his documentary “Lil Nas X: Long Live Montero” due to an alleged “bomb threat” during the Toronto International Film Festival.

Reaction: However, some did not react well to the election, criticizing him on social media for “making light” of issues affecting women.
Not happy: One said: “Lil nas x dressing up as a bloody tampon is the most annoying thing I’ve seen tonight.” He doesn’t do anything but romanticize things that cause women pain.

“I know that in my life, while I’m here, I will do my best to reach the limit that we can reach as black, queer people,” he said. “And I mean unattainable, as it can go far beyond that.”
The performer, who publicly came out as gay in June 2019, continued: “I feel like we live in a generation where black, queer people are really controlling the culture and helping to really take the world to the next level to lift.”
He also expressed how he felt entering the film industry, such as attending a red carpet premiere.
“I mean, I’m looking forward to going there and seeing what people think, and also I’ve never been to a film festival before, so maybe I’ll meet people and build some future relationships,” said the Industry Baby Singer stated.
