Lil Nas X Split His Pants in Provocative SNL Performance

scandal 24/05/2021

The rapper behind controversial hit Montero (Call Me By Your Name), Lil Nas X, rocked up to the Saturday Night Live studios in New York to deliver the last musical performance of the season.

He definitely delivered with an epic performance of the recent chart-buster, and everything was going according to plan. Nas was backed up by oil-slicked backup dancers dressed in assless chaps and he decided to pull some pole dancing moves… and promptly split his pants right up the crotch.

To his absolute credit, Lil Nas only allowed for about a second of shock to cross his face before he recovered, grabbed his crotch and continued on with the extravagant performance.

His ability to manage the mishap so well lead some fans to believe that it was planned, but the singer promptly clarified that it was indeed accidental with the following tweets.

“At first I was afraid to even perform,” he wrote on Twitter, Notably bummed by the outcome.

“Then we rehearsed for two weeks, then all of the dancers got removed because one had covid and new ones had to learn the routine in 24 hours, and then I ended up ripping my pants and couldn’t finish. Everything happens for a reason tho lol.”

The performance is still notably one of the most extravagant and provocative in SNL history, so we hope Lil Nas X doesn’t feel too embarrassed – he absolutely killed it!
