American rapper/singer, Lil Nas X has been revealed as one of GQ’s 26th annual Men Of The Year Issue.
Lil Nas X, whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill, won the musician of the year title, actor Tom Holland bagged the superhero of the year title, while NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo took the athlete of the year title.
The 22-year-old rapstar cuddled up to a clone as he appeared on the cover of the GQ Men Of The Year issue for the publication.
Speaking with the publication, Lil Nas X spoke about his relationship with his ex-boyfriend Ariza, who starred in his That’s What I Want music video.
He said: ‘I started actually dating my last boyfriend this past year, who I’m still on really good terms with.
‘I love him to death. He’s the best. I feel it was the most serious relationship I’ve ever had.’
As things didn’t work out between them, Lil Nas stressed the importance of self-love in the interview with playwright Jeremy O. Harris as he said: ‘I feel I still want to hang out with guys every now and then. I don’t want anything that’s — not to be a whore or anything, but I don’t want anything that’s like, ‘I need your time right now.
‘Sometimes, when you get sad or whatnot, you just want to go with somebody and cuddle and kiss and hug. And I love to do that. But ultimately, I feel I’ve gotten to a place where I have enough love for me that I can focus on myself.’
The star said that he wants love to fall on himself organically.
He explained: ‘And when the time comes [for love], I’m not going to force it or anything. There’ll be somebody, and I’ll say, “Okay, I want to make this person a priority.”‘
