Elton John Makes A Queer Joke To Lil Nas X Over Their New Collaboration
British icon Sir Elton John shared a post on his official Twitter page responding to successful rapper Lil Nas X’s tweet about their brand new collaboration. Being two queer icons of different generations, the Rocket Man made a joke about being the ‘fairy’ godfather of the young musician’s upcoming album, ‘MONTERO.’
For those of you who may not know, the dream collaboration of Lil Nas X and Elton John is on the horizon since the two representatives of the LGBTQ+ community made a duet named ‘One of Me,’ which will appear on both artists’ new albums. Fans cannot wait to hear the track since they have been expecting a collaboration for a long time.
Speaking of which, both musicians will release new records in the near future. X’s debut studio album named ‘Montero’ will be released on September 17. John’s ‘Lockdown Sessions’ will drop on October 22 and feature numerous artists such as Nicki Minaj and Young Thug.
Elton and Lil Nas recently collaborated for a new Uber Eats campaign for the latest edition of the delivery app’s ‘Tonight I’ll Be Eating.’ Elton John and Lil Nas X shot videos together for the campaign during which the rapper wore the British icon’s legendary outfits.
The rapper recently shared a tweet announcing his upcoming album, which he refers to as a ‘baby,’ with an accompanying maternity photoshoot. The record is incredibly blessed to have a musician like Elton John as its Godfather. X also didn’t forget to use a non-binary pronoun for his record.
Lil Nas X said in his post:
“Baby Montero will be so lucky to have Elton John as their godfather.”
After seeing his fellow musician’s post, Elton John came up with an iconic response. He added the word ‘fairy’ in front of the Godfather title. The tweet was hilarious, and it was a cherry on top of their conversation over their mutual project.
