Adam Lambert Reacts To Lil Nas X’s Controversial Music Video, ‘How Refreshing!’

Queen’s touring lead vocalist Adam Lambert shared a post on his official Twitter page revealing his opinions about the recent music video of Lil Nas X‘s for the song ‘MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)‘ and stated that the video that already found itself a place within the iconic LGBTQ+ music videos, is challenging, symbolic, and refreshing.

As you might know, famous rapper Lil Nas X recently released his queer-themed song ‘MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)’ on March 26, 2021, from his upcoming album ‘Montero.’ The track first previewed in a Super Bowl LV commercial in February 2021 and an extended version of the song released three days later on March 29.

The music video for the track features Lil Nas X as various characters in biblical and mythology-inspired scenes, however, those things are not the reason why the video draws so much attention as it already has 53 million views on YouTube in less than a week. The main reason is that the famous rapper decided to convey a storyline using binary oppositions such as masculinity and femininity, thus, stressing the story of a person who is not heterosexual.

Due to the fact that the video has already become an iconic LGBTQ+ music video, Adam Lambert who is an all-time supporter of the LGBTQ+ community shared a post on his official Twitter page expressing his excitement over the success of the music video of Lil Nas X since it went viral and created a huge sensation on various social media platforms. In addition to this, Lambert stated that the video is daring, filled with symbols, and pushed limits with its challenging images, therefore, it’s refreshing to see.

Here is what Lambert said:

“I’m so excited for the explosion ⁦Lil Nas X has created w his video. It’s been a long time coming but it just came all over us. It’s challenging and symbolic and pushes buttons. How refreshing. Great article Variety! (But also… fuck my drag right?)”

While supporters of the LGBTQ+ community praised and welcomed this work of art, there are also numerous people who find it wrong since it uses biblical images for celebrating something that is condemned by the Bible itself. However, Adam Lambert was there to prove them wrong via another tweet since there are plenty of movies that includes similar references that many people watched and enjoyed.

Here is what he said:

“Did any of the people shocked and disgusted by his video see the movie Hellboy? Good Omens. What about The Devils Advocate? What about Rosemary’s Baby? The Witches of Eastwick.? Better yet…. do you celebrate Halloween? Come on ….. it’s an Archetype
