Lil Nas X has racked up a lot of accomplishments since “Old Town Road” became a number one hit earlier this year, including making the cover of Time magazine. In the accompanying interview, Lil Nas X spoke about why he was scared of losing fans after coming out.

Lil Nas X explained that growing up he was told that homosexuality “is never to be O.K,” adding, “I know the people who listen to this the most, and they’re not accepting of homosexuality.” Lil Nas X then explained what inspired him to come out, “I never would have done that if I wasn’t in a way pushed by the universe. In June, I’m seeing Pride flags everywhere and seeing couples holding hands — little stuff like that.”
