To celebrate the September 17th due date for his “baby” (his debut album Montero), Lil Nas X did a photo shoot in the classic “baby bump” format for People magazine.
Via People, he said the idea was inspired by Megan Thee Stallion‘s contribution to his single “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.
Be sure to read the YouTube comments to get a sense of how far we have to go before people will accept a gay black artist having a little fun while promoting his album. On second, thought, don’t waste your time on negativity, and instead prepare for baby Montero this month!
