Lil Nas X's Kiss With Backup Dancer At The 2021 BET Awards Breaks The Internet


Lil Nas X has once again shattered the internet.

The 22-year-old artist took the stage at the 2021 BET Awards to perform “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).” Dressed in a gold Egyptian pharaoh costume with an image of a sphinx behind him, Lil Nas X tore the stage up at Sunday's show with a performance inspired by Michael Jackson's "Remember The Time" video.

At the end of his performance, he leaned over and kissed one of his male backup dancers, which was a first for the BET Awards stage.

The openly gay artist received a standing ovation for his daring performance, and Black Twitter erupted, with many remarking on how timely the moment was for Black gay visibility, especially during Pride Month.

When the music video for “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” debuted in March, it sparked widespread homophobic outrage, with the two-time Grammy winner descending to hell on a stripper pole and performing a lap dance for Satan.
