The Top Story
“Dorothy, I don’t think we’re on the Old Town Road anymore,” as the saying goes. Lil Nas X ditches the quaint world of horseback commuting for the highway to hell in “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” a music video that explores a queer realm of mythological fantasy, trading in his former Western wear for surreal images that land somewhere far east of Eden.
Most provocative in the new video, perhaps, is a “save a horse, ride a demon” scene in which Nas engages a throned satanic figure in a lapdance, before the devil gets his violent due.
At the same time he posted the wild video late Thursday night, the rapper also took to social media to post an open letter to his 14-year-old self, whom he addresses by his real name — Montero — in explaining why he’s taking his coming out in farther-out directions.
