After Lil Nas X called out the BET Awards for a lack of 2022 nominations despite a successful year commercially and critically, BET put out an empty statement claiming that they celebrate diversity within the Black community. Those in support of BET’s statement and (possibly) LNX’s lack of nominations pointed to the fact that he performed in 2021, so it can’t possibly be due to homophobia or anything else.

Now in a recent statement released to RollingStone, Lil Nas X explained, “they[‘ll] say that ‘no one cheered louder’ for me than them that night.” However, he also continued to reveal the hoops he had to jump to perform and what happened after that performance.
