We cannot even with Lil Nas X right now. Somehow he managed to outdo even himself at the BET Awards last night with TWO red carpet looks and a performance that had the WORLD gagged.
First up there was his silver Bowie/Marie Antoinette-inspired gown that looked like he was literally from out of space and then a more country themed embroidered fitted suit with giant flares that went on for days.
Add to this a high-end giant ancient Egyptian themed set and on point choreographed dance troupe for a mash-up of Montero (Call Me By Your Name) and Michael Jackson’s legendary music video for Remember The Time and you had what can only be described as an ICONIC night from a star at the top of his game.
And then he snogs one of his dancers. The BET Awards have NEVER had someone like Lal Nas X literally set the stage on queer fire and frankly it’s somewhat astounding. Giving us real Madonna-snogging-Britney-and-Christina vibes, it’s PURE showmanship that had the audiences gasping.
