Lil Nas X has opened up once more about his decision to come out, revealing that when he was younger, he used to pray that being gay was nothing more than a phase.

"I knew, especially around my teenage years," Lil Nas X told CBS host Gayle King.

"That it was, like, a phase," he added. "I mean because me being in this position it's easy for me. But like, some little boy 10 miles from here, it's not gon' be good for him."

"It's been a wild last 7 months and im ready to take a little time off," he tweeted last week. "Sorry to everyone attending twitchcon or the sandbox music festival, i will not be there. i love u guys and will make it up to you some way."
