Lil Nas X is pregnant with a new album and just released his baby registry for the whole world to see. But instead of a crib or onesies or diapers, Lil Nas is asking that fans donate to charities if they want to support him.
For each song on the album, Nas has listed a charity or group that fans can donate to. This includes the Transinclusive Group for “Montero,” The Bail Project for “Industry Baby,” Compassion Atlanta for “The Art of Realization,” Relationship Unleashed for “Scoop” featuring Doja Cat, and The Happy Hippie organization for “Am I Dreaming” featuring Miley Cyrus.
Head over to his Montero baby registry to find links to all the organizations he’s supporting.
The Out cover star broke the internet when he first announced that he was “pregnant” with his upcoming debut album, posting pictures of his extremely pregnant belly on Instagram. Lil Nas is dressed all in white, adorned with white flowers, and sitting by a pool surrounded by greenery. They're honestly some of the most beautiful maternity photos I’ve ever seen.
However, some homophobes weren’t having it. Haters online commented that Lil Nas was setting a bad example for Black youth, saying that he’s supposed to represent “proper” manhood. “One day y’all will learn I am not a representation of anyone but Lil Nas X,” he replied.
Haters are obviously gonna keep on hating, but in the meantime, Lil Nas X is thriving and is asking his fans to help others thrive too. It’s a clever way to turn a publicity stunt into positive change, and one of the many reasons we will continue to stan!
Lil Nas X’s debut album Montero comes out September 17!
