Lil Nas X Shares an Update About His Love Life

Lil Nas X revealed that he’s in love!

He shared an update about his love life and said that he is dating “the one.”

According to an interview, he told Variety in the magazine’s 2021 Power of Young Hollywood Issue, “I’ve had some good boyfriends and some bad ones. A lot of them were emotionally unavailable or had a lot of insecurity and whatnot.”

He said that his love life has since gotten better.

According to Page Six, he said, “I’ve found someone special now. I think this is the one. I can’t explain it — it’s just a feeling.”

Although he didn’t say who he’s dating, speculation is brewing that he’s with his backup dancer Yai Ariza because the pair has shown PDA during several TV appearances.

The duo became the first male entertainers to share a kiss when Lil Nas X was performing at the 2021 BET Awards in June.

Ariza shared on Instagram, “Thank you so much @lilnasx & @itsbankhead for make me part of this historic and iconic moment for our community!”

Lil Nas X said that coming out as gay during Pride in 2019 was “one of the scariest moments” of his life.

He revealed to Page Six, “I was afraid because I knew the world was watching and all I ever saw for boys like me was judgment and ridicule, but it was because the world was watching, that I knew I had to stand in my truth.”

He said, “There’s no road map when you’re the first to break a barrier, and I hope that one day it’s no longer groundbreaking for queer artists to find mainstream success…. Until that day comes, there’s work to do and I will continue to do my part.”
