Lil Nas X, Now Divorced From the Devil, Enters ‘Christian Era;’ Denies Religious Imagery Mocks Jesus Christ

Lil Nas X, the Grammy-winning artist who burst onto the scene with “Old Town Road,” continues his foray into religion, claiming he has now entered a “Christian era” with his latest music.

Fans admire the 24-year-old openly gay recording artist for pushing boundaries and challenging conventions. So it was no surprise that his last studio album, “MONTERO,” earned him additional awards on top of “Old Town Road” accolades.

But he ruffled the feathers of Christians with his Satan-inspired “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” music video, which the artist followed up with his “Satan Shoes.” The artist, panned by Christians for giving a lapdance to the devil in hell, has not released any music since 2022.

But Lil Nas X insists he has since departed from the devil. He is now pushing themes and imagery associated with another side of Christianity to promote his new music video, “J CHRIST.”

In one promotional act, the artist, whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill, published an acceptance letter to the evangelical school Liberty University on Twitter, or X.

“I know twitter hates me right now but i want yall to know im literally about to go to college for biblical studies in the fall,” Lil Nas X tweeted January 9. “Not everything is a troll! Anyways IM A STUDENT AGAIN! LETS GOOO”

As it turned out, the tweeted image was indeed a troll. As users pointed out, Jerry Falwell’s signature on the so-called acceptance letter didn’t make much sense. Falwell Sr. died several years ago. However, that didn’t stop TMZ from contacting a Liberty University representative for confirmation.

The day prior, Lil Nas X unveiled crucifixion-inspired artwork for his new “J CHRIST” single. The imagery depicts the recording artist pinned to a cross being hoisted into the air. According to People magazine, Lil Nas X insisted he was not attempting to make a mockery of Jesus Christ, who he said “had the greatest comeback of all time.”

However, another one of his promotional stunts for his new music video puts the mockery denial into question.

As Them reports, the rapper has “also posted a video of himself in Jesus cosplay, taking shots of wine and scarfing down Communion wafers.”

Communion is a sacred ceremony Christians partake in to remember Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross. Lil Nas X shouldn’t be surprised if Christians are offended and accuse him of mocking their faith and its founder.

As fans continue defending his artistic and promotional moves, Christians will undoubtedly continue pointing out his offenses.

Ultimately, Lil Nas X will achieve what he has set out to do — get eyeballs on his new music video “J CHRIST” when it is released on January 12.
