Gayle King: Did you know as a little boy that you were gay? Did you think that as a youngster while people were telling you it’s not a good thing, were you thinking, “Yeah, but I think I am?”

Lil Nas X: Yeah, definitely. I knew, especially, like, around my teenage, like, years. You know, I would just, like, you know, pray, pray, and pray and–

King: What were you praying for?

Lil Nas X: That it was, like, a phase.

King: That it would go away?

Lil Nas X: Yeah, it would go away.

King: I’m good with it, but I’m not gonna tell anybody, yeah.

Lil Nas X: Yeah, I mean, ’cause me being in this position, like, it’s easy for me. But, like, some little boy 10 miles from here. It’s not gonna be good for him. Yeah.

X also shared with his massive Twitter following that he’s going to step away from music, canceling two upcoming shows in the process.
