It wasn’t as controversial as giving the devil a lap dance like in his music video for the song Montero, but Lil Nas X just gave one of the most talked about performances of his career. On last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live, he split his pants on live TV while gyrating on a stripper pole.
Lil Nas X’s SNL Musical Performance Ends With A Wardrobe Malfunction
It’s obvious that Lil Nas X wanted everyone to be talking about his SNL appearance. The wardrobe malfunction occurred during an already very steamy production to his song “Montero (Call Me by Your Name).” For the performance, Lil Nas X was surrounded by six shirtless male dancers dressed in leather on a hell-themed set. One of the dancers even licked his neck in the middle of the song.
Then his pants ripped in the crotch.
As they say in the entertainment business, the show must go on. And so it did. Lil Nas X finished his provocative musical performance while concealing the rip by holding one hand over his crotch. It’s unclear if he was wearing underwear or not.
