In his new GQ cover story Lil Nas X opened up about all things love, career and… Grindr.
Nas X told GQ what his social media is like these days…
“My DMs are all out of order.
Which is lucky, because I do get horny and I’m like,
‘Let’s see who’s the hottest person in this thing.’
But you know, luckily I don’t really do that. I only did that once, maybe.”
“…I can’t do Grindr anymore. I’d get murdered. I’d literally probably get murdered.”
He also talked about his “most serious relationship” to date.
“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.
But he says being in a relationship had challenges,
“It’s a responsibility.
I’ve been wanting somebody for so long and wanting somebody to love for so long, but it’s a real responsibility. And you have to give this person your time. And I like to go missing for like a week to focus…not talk to anyone and focus on myself…
I’m more in love with what I’m doing than people.”
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. 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.’”
Lil Nas X was named Musician of the Year by the magazine. You can read the full interview and see more pics here at GQ.com.
