Lil Nas X accepts himself on ‘Long Live Montero’

“When I was little, my sexuality was like the elephant in the room,” Lil Nas X confesses in ‘Long Live Montero’, the documentary about his life and career. The artist, who has just begun a new era with the release of his controversial song ‘J Christ’, is preparing his jump to the small screen.

«Some think my music is good. Others see me as a satanic demon. “But me?” reflects Lil Nas X lying in bed. The documentary will address everything from his own emotions and artistic visions, to the problems he has had to deal with on his path to stardom.

The ‘Long Live Montero’ trailer, which shares footage of the rapper on stage, also previews some intimate moments of Lil Nas X with his family. “Don’t be homophobic,” he tells his nephews while they travel in the car. “I always try to challenge the way my family thinks about things,” he says later. “A lot of queer people are making these strides, but it’s a struggle,” he continues.

Lil Nas ‘Long Live Montero’ will premiere on HBO on January 27 and will arrive on MAX right after.
