Lil Nas X has had a history with causing a buzz with his music videos. Back in March, he released the music video for Montero (Call me By Your Name) which caused a lot of controversy as people believed Nas X was trying to poke fun at religion with the video. And now, he has a new music video that has a lot of people talking.
The music video for “Industry Baby” features Nas X and featured rapper Jack Harlow in jail. The music video includes scenes where a group of men, including Nas X, are dancing around in a shower naked. This caused a lot of controversy on Twitter, as Nas X, who is openly gay, hasn’t shied away from involving his sexuality in his music. He even has a lyric in the song that states, “I don’t f*ck b*tches, I’m queer”.
Despite the controversy, Harlow defended Nas X via twitter, saying Nas X the music video was Nas X’s idea and that he was honored to be apart of the video. He even said that if Nas X had asked him to be in the shower scene, he would have done it. Nas X would then joke with Harlow in a response to his tweet.
