Lil Nas X brought Pride month to a close after he came out as LGBT+ in a tweet, and the rapper has gone on to charm the internet after he accidentally walked in front of a camera after his BBC Breakfast interview came to a close.
The 20-year-old rapper blocked hosts Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty as he got up from the sofa after his interview.
“Nas, can we just say, you just walked right across our camera shot,” Stayt told the rapper.
You know how to steal the show.
“I was leaving,” Lil Nas X said, prompting Stayt to explain how that worked: “The way this works is you have to sit there so you don’t go in front of the cameras.”
“Next time that won’t happen,” he laughed.
After, he sat back down on the sofa and waited for the reports to finish.
The internet loved everything about the clip
Lil Nas's reaction is precious
Others didn't think it was a big deal
These things happen
And they thought the reactions from the presenters was a bit much
Lil Nas' camera faux pas reminded viewers of another cute moment in live television...
The rapper, real name Montero Lamar Hill addressed the reaction that came after he came out in a series of tweets in which he asked fans to “listen closely” to the lyrics of his track C7osure (You Like). He talks about wanting to “be free.”
Talking to the BBC, he said he hoped he was “opening doors for more people.”
“How big of a deal is [coming out]?” he continued. “Is it something that I was considering never doing ever, like taking to the grave or something?
But I was like, I don’t want to live my entire life - especially how I got to where I’m at, not doing what I want to do.
