“Old Town Road’ singer Lil Nas X came out as gay, according to his tweets. He announced the news by pointing to the lyrics of “C7osure” from his new 7 EP.

“some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm no more,” he wrote. “but before this month ends i want y’all to listen closely to c7osure.”

The tweet includes a rainbow emoji; today is the final day of Pride Month.

“C7osure” begins, “True say, I want and I need to let go, use my time to be free.” He continues: “Ain’t no more actin’, man that forecast say I should just let me grow/No more red light for me baby, only green, I gotta go/Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take ahold/This is what I gotta do, can’t be regrettin’ when I’m old.”

Now it looks like the backlash he’s receiving ain’t jiving with former Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade.  

He dropped Lil Nas X some support. 

Lil Nas is not having it.
