Lil Nas X | The Dark Side of Fame | Satanism, Nike, Industry Plant & More
On the BRIGHT SIDE OF FAME – that song almost immediately turned him into a household name upon its release. Not only did this track end up as the No.1 song on the charts, but it became the longest-charting No. 1 song ever at 19 consecutive weeks at the top. All-in-all Lil Nas X was said to have made over $14 Million in 2019 alone and he also made Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list that year as well. But on the DARK SIDE OF FAME is a different story altogether – and when someone reaches the mountain top as quickly and seemingly out-of-nowhere as Lil Nas did, then that person is bound to have detractors. Not only has Nas had to deal with rumors that he’s an industry plant, but his subsequent reveal that he is, in fact, a gay man, has led to certain sections of our population looking at him differently and raging against some of his more recent artistic creations like a music video where he pole dances for Satan and his new signature “Satan Shoes” that Nike quickly sued him over after reports revealed that each sneaker contained – wait, let me just double-check this, yep — a drop of human blood.
