Lil Nas X just came out as a ‘bottom on the low’

Lil Nas X has set the record straight on his new single “Holiday”, declaring to the world: “I might bottom on the low, but I top s**t.”

The “Old Town Road” artist combines two simple pleasures – Christmas and bottoming – in the video for his new single.

On “Holiday”, Lil Nas X is a sexy, silver-haired Santa; a skirt-wearing choreography elf and a big old bottom.

“Ayy, can I pop s**t? / I might bottom on the low, but I top s**t,” he croons.

“Switch the genre on you hoes, do a rock hit.”

The gays, of course, went wild.

Though others didn’t take the news quite so well.

Some decided it was time to get resourceful.

As one person pointed out, the lyric went deeper than the simple act of anal sex, and had the power to penetrate even the straightest of hearts.

Set in the North Pole on Christmas Eve 2220, Lil Nas X’s “Holiday” video gives Mariah Carey a run for her money in terms of aggressive Yuletide cheer.

Lil Nas X – sorry, Santa Nas X – is seen flying out of a high-tech present factory in a red sportswear powdered by mechanical reindeer, soaring past a retooled Mount Rushmore (with the four presidents replaced by, yep, Lil Nas X), the Hollywood sign (now Holiday) and the Statue of Liberty.

The track is his first since the release of his EP 7 in June 2019, and trails his eagerly-anticipated debut album.

At last month’s Billboard Music Awards, Lil Nas X – dressed in a snakeskin suit and Prince-inspired bangs – hailed the upcoming effort as “the greatest album of all time”, confirming it would drop in 2021.

A second single, “Call Me By Your Name”, has already been teased – and has already won the approval of Rihanna.

Nas was just 19 when “Old Town Road” went viral and scaled charts around the world in early 2019.

A few months after its release he came out as gay, on the last day of Pride Month, but he’s admitted that wasn’t his original plan.
