Lil Nas X unloaded on BET over his 2022 BET Award nom snubs earlier this week … and he’s got at least one royal supporter in Queen Latifah.
We caught up with the legendary rap star promoting her new flick “Hustle” outside “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and while she feels LNX’s talent is literally “amazing,” it doesn’t appear she agrees with his complaints his sexuality caused the snub.
The “Industry Baby” was a couple dynamite sticks short of nuclear on Wednesday when he accused the network of sharing into the world’s problems — by excluding Black gay artists from top recognition.
His complaints were only amplified when it was discovered Jack Harlow, (yep, the White guy) was nominated for Best Male Hip Hop Artist alongside Drake, Future, Kanye and more … causing fans on Twitter to have a field day.
It’s not like LNX hasn’t been on the BET Awards’ radar. In 2020, he earned a Best New Artist Award and last year, went viral by kissing his ex-boyfriendYai Ariza during his performance on live TV.
Latifah did emphasize, however, there are enough seats at any table for anyone to be included. We’re not sure how that will help Montero get unsnubbed — but at least he’s got the respect of the Queen!
