Lil Nas X stopped by CBS This Morning recently to discuss his sexuality with interviewer Gayle King. In the segment, he reveals his experience coming out as gay and what that might mean to his fans.  The full interview will be aired later this week. Watch a snippet of the interview above.

X stated that he first realized he was gay as a teenager. "I would be praying and praying and praying that it was like a phase," he said, stating that he'd been hoping "that it would go away." In reference to his new-found fame, he says that now "it's easy for me, but for some little boy 10 miles from here it's not going to be good for him."

When asked if he thinks his public message is helping struggling fans, he said, "I think it's gonna always help. You still have a long way to go." The artist also said there's a chance people wouldn't listen to his music anymore for fear of being labeled gay by association. "Somebody who's listening to me in school right now, it's like 'You gay because you're listening to him.'"

There's "still a lot to be done, of course," he added, "but I do believe that it's helping."

On this week’s episode of The Dropcast, we are joined by the Patta dons Edson Sabajo and Guillaume Schmidt, who are marking the Dutch brand’s 15th anniversary with historical milestones.
