Lil Nas X Won the Biggest Award at the MTV VMAs This Year


Lil Nas X just keeps winning! 

After slaying the stage earlier in the evening with a performance of his bop "Industry Baby" with rapper Jack Harlow, the 22-year-old Out cover star took home the biggest award of the night — the highly coveted Video of the Year — for his other iconic single, "MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)!"

"I want to say thank you to the gay agenda," X said during his acceptance speech, surely angering the homophobes who were absolutely fuming when the video for the track, which featured X giving Satan himself a lap dance, was originally released back in March

An out artist winning the biggest award of the night at a long-running, popular awards show is a big deal, and we can't think of a person better than Lil Nas X to be having the honor!

Congrats, X! You deserve!!
