Breakout musician Lil Nas X released the music video for his single “Panini,” in which he shows how hyper-aware he is of his own popularity.
With his song “Old Town Road” spending a record-breaking 19 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Lil Nas X knows that he is everywhere in media now. Lil Nas X came out as gay in June, making the point that artists should be able to come out at any time — even when at the top of the charts.
