Lil Nas X has no interest in being a role model for children.
For the past week, the rapper who gained viral fame last year with the country record ‘Old Town Road’ has drawn intense criticism for releasing a music video that features him giving Satan a lapdance.
I think the biggest problem for me is the fact he dont understand “old town road” is every kids anthem. Children love him for that record. They tuned in and subscribed to his channels. So with no disclaimer he just dropped some left field ish & all our kids seen it. Smh

Lil Nas X was quick to remind parents who are mad at him over his latest video that “Old Town Road” wasn’t really a kid-friendly song considering it contained lyrics about taking drugs and cheating.

Lyrics in Old Town Road:
"Riding on a tractor
Lean all in my bladder
Cheated on my baby
You can go and ask her
My life is a movie
Bull riding and boobies"
What parent is letting this be a "kids anthem" lol

The 21-year-old rapper told angry parents that he had zero interest of catering to their children for the rest of his career.
