Lil Nas X recently revealed that he and his boyfriend have gone their separate ways. If you’re interested in stepping in, LNX also recently described his ideal partner.
“When the time is right, I want somebody who’s fun,” the Grammy winner told Entertainment Tonight. “Someone who’s always ready to try new stuff. Somebody’s who’s ready for me to become a different person every single year.”
Lil Nas X was last romantically linked to Yai Ariza, who costarred in his “That’s What I Want” music video. Although the two are no longer together, the rapper assured they are on “very good terms” and admits the two could reconcile “in the future.”
And while the “Industry Baby” star knows what he wants in a future relationship, he admitted he’s not ready to get involved with anyone at the moment. Lil Nas X said he is focusing on the success of his debut album, Montero, which allowed him to give back to the friends and family members who’ve supported him over the years.
“I do like spending money on myself too, don’t get me wrong, but there’s a greater feeling when you’re actually able to [give to] somebody that wouldn’t be able to buy something for themselves,” he said.
In addition, LNX said he was able to reconnect with his family when he visited his hometown in Lithia Springs, Georgia, and joked that “everybody’s actually into the music.”
“I’ll be honest, before this year my family was like, ‘OK, you make music that’s dope.’ But now they’re actually getting into the music and they love it as much as me. So that’s fire,” the 22-year-old explained, adding that when his family tries playing his new album, “I’m like ‘Turn it off. Not right now.'”
