Lil Nas X is firing back at accusations of being a Satanist and devil worshipper by launching The website, seemingly set up by Sony Entertainment, humorously claims that the rapper, 24, needs to be saved and provocatively suggests that the devil is “homosexual.”

This move comes in response to backlash from two years ago when the artist stirred controversy with his “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” music video, featuring a scene of him giving the Devil a lap dance while descending a stripper pole to Hell. The website playfully mimics the aesthetic of early Internet GeoCities pages with animated gifs and pixelated art depicting pentagrams and hellfire.

Lil Nas X’s website says that the devil is homosexual raises questions like “Where Is Lil Nas X,” insinuating that he may have been sacrificed to the devil after over 831 days since his debut album Old Town Road. “Has the DEVIL-WORSHIPPING pop artist finally been sacrificed to HIS MASTER?” the website asks. “WHY is he SECLUDING HIMSELF???? What is he PREPARING FOR? This site will answer ALL THESE QUESTIONS AND MORE!!!… We will find Montero, and WE WILL SAVE HIM BY RETURNING HIS HEART TO J.CHRIST’S LIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

The site humorously claims to reveal the singer’s location in Hell, pinpointing him at Level 8, beyond the traditional seven deadly sins. 

Under the “Possessed By A Gay Demon” section, it satirically alleges that Lil Nas X “can be seen TWERKING on SATAN himself. This proves that the DEVIL is HOMOSEXUAL!!!!! (SHOCKER!!!!!!!).” The website goes on to add that, “the devil has possessed Nas X with the spirit of sin to influence the world into DAMNATION. That is why Nas has been away from the spotlight. To arrange a scheme against the world with Satan and probably TWERK on him some more!!!”

What was Lil Nas X’s ‘Montero’ video about?

In Lil Nas X’s “Montero” video, he creatively portrayed the struggles of being a gay man in America, depicting his character’s expulsion from Heaven to hell for his homosexuality. This personal artwork stirred controversy, particularly with religious figures like South Carolina Pastor Mark Burns.

Following the release of the video in 2021, Burns told ABC News that the video was “disgusting to see a lot of us acting as though he is not having intercourse with Satan on television.” The video also led to the creation of the infamous “Satan shoes” in collaboration with Brooklyn-based joint MSCHF. These modified Nike Air Max 97s, featuring devilish branding and a drop of human blood in the Air bubble, generated immense buzz but faced legal challenges from Nike, resulting in a lawsuit to prevent their release.

Lil Nas X is in his ‘Christmas Era’

Lil Nas X is currently in his “Christian era” as announced by himself via a post on X (formerly Twitter) on November 29. He stepped out of his truck into an empty street, donned a tattered skirt, a Christian-themed T-shirt, and long hair extensions, dancing joyfully to an inspirational tune, capturing a moment of divine inspiration, as per Us Weekly. 

The Grammy Award winner is evidently being sarcastic about his antics as it was seen on December 9 when he humorously claimed to have created a new beat from a fart. Just two days later, he teased his Instagram followers with a thirst trap, promising to drop a new song if he received “10 comments,” playfully turning off comments on the post.
