Lil Nas X might be done making out with back-up dancers during performances, because according to him, he has found ‘THE ONE!’
The ‘Montero’ singer-songwriter recently opened up about his personal life in a new interview with Variety.
Now, Lil Nas X has kept tight-lipped about who his one true ‘one’ is, but he was able to spill some tea about him during the interview.
“I’ve had some good boyfriends and some bad ones,” the 22-year-old revealed in the “2021 Power of Young Hollywood Issue.”
Lil Nas X added, “A lot of them were emotionally unavailable or had a lot of insecurity and whatnot.”
However, that was then and this is now, and now is looking A LOT better. He said, “I’ve found someone special now. I think this is the one.”
Lil Nas X noted that he ‘can’t explain it,’ but there is a certain ‘feeling’ he has about this person.
As previously mentioned, the identity of the person he is dating has not been revealed, but there’s speculation it is his back-up dancer by the name of Yai Ariza.
Ariza performed “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” with the singer in May on ‘SNL.’
At the time of the performance, Ariza took to Instagram to show off his mad licking skills.
On May 23, he posted a snippet of the big moment and captioned the video, “This moment right here 🔥 Yes, It’s me licking @lilnasx Neck 👅😈.”
The dancer thoroughly licked his neck, and the two have continued to swap spit during other performances of the song.
It just so happened that during this same performance, the singer ripped his pants right up the middle while doing a sultry pole dance.
The incident happened during a LIVE taping in front of a LIVE studio audience, so there was no getting around the wardrobe malfunction.
After he got off stage he tweeted, “NOT MY PANTS RIPPED ON LIVE TV.”
I Ripped My Pants!
He then followed up with fans on Sunday, May 23rd tweeting, “i know i do a lot of planned shit but ripping my pants on live television is not one of them.
Lil Nas X dished about the mishap on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” that following Monday.
He explained that he had to go on with the performance, because you know, live television, and that at one point his backup dancers were grabbing on his pants (as they were instructed to do) and nearly ripped them off all together.
Luckily, his pants stayed on by a thread and he wasn’t too mortified to tell the tale!
We are excited to see Lil Nas X living his happiest life and good luck to making ‘the one’ the ‘forever!’
