Lil Nas X Responds to Drake
Pregnancy is already on Lil Nas X's mind that he also gave the nod to Drake's "Certified Lover Boy" by sharing his cover art.
On his Instagram account, he made a counterpart of Drake's pregnant women emojis by sharing pregnant men's version of it.
Meanwhile, after all the baby talks, Lil Nas X said that he is a father and a mother at the same time before joking that the producers who worked on Drake's album are either dads or uncles.
His fans immediately applauded his move and congratulated his "pregnancy." However, most internet users still called him out for giving a bad take at bad timing.
"cis men don't experience pregnancy. so why are they making laws in Texas banning abortions, aka life saving healthcare? and why are they in the cover of a magazine pretending to be pregnant? when an actual pregnant person was told No ?" one said.
Meanwhile, Donnell Rawlings also commented on the photoshoot, questioning what it would bring to the minds of his kids. He also asked the public how he would explain the picture to his sons.
Lil Nas X posted a screenshot of Rawling's thoughts before a fan defended him and said, "boys have been putting basketballs under their shirt to look pregnant since 1891. Your son will be alright."
Regardless of people's comments, he clarified that he is not a representation of anyone but himself. Amid all hate, he invited everyone for a baby shower in the Los Angeles area.
