Billboard Magazine reports:
Lil Nas X opened up about his journey to coming out as gay in an interview with Gayle King set to air on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning.
In a preview of the sit-down released Monday, the rapper told Gayle King that he “knew” growing up that he was gay. “Especially during my teenage years, I would just pray, pray and pray,” he said. When King asked what he prayed for, he responded, “That it was a phase.”
He added that his new level of fame gave him an advantage when publicly coming out. “Me being in this position, it’s easy for me,” said the rapper. “But some little boy 10 miles from here, it’s not gonna be good for him.”
