The long-awaited debut album of Lil Nas X (22) will soon see the light of day and that is why the rapper has done a maternity photo shoot for ‘People’ complete with baby belly. He declares in the accompanying interview that his new record ‘Montero’ is his baby.
The rapper, whose real name is Montero Hill, says he made that baby comment to his stylist before, who joked that he might have to have maternity photos taken. “And then I was like: That’s actually a brilliant idea!”
Lil Nas X poses in one of the photos wearing a flower crown by a pool. In another shot he is lying on a couch with an open dressing gown. The photos were not appreciated by everyone. On Twitter, the musician reacted laconically to a number of hateful comments. He joked, among other things, that he is accused of desperately trying to get attention by people who then give him all that attention.
Still, at one point, he seemed done with the response, tweeting, “I’m going to go offline for a while, all this negative energy isn’t good for the baby.”
