Lil Nas X is rebranding Hot Girl Summer to Hot Boy Summer on the cover of The New York Times Magazine. The 'Montero' singer sat down to chat about his personal and musical growth since 'Old Town Road,' his rising internet fame, and his pursuit of being a visibly gay popstar for the world to see.
He reminisces in his SNL wardrobe malfunction and how coming out was a gam changer for his career and personal life.
