Just after beginning a pole dance while performing his popular single “MONTERO: Call Me by Your Name,” the pop singer looked down to discover his leather pants had ripped in front. Lil Nas X smiled sheepishly as he continued singing and danced in place while covering his crotch with his hand. He later laughed off the wardrobe malfunction.
On Sunday, May 23, Lil Nas X wrote, “i know i do a lot of planned s–t but ripping my pants on live television is not one of them.”
He later added, “At first i was afraid to even perform. Then we rehearsed for 2 weeks, then all of the dancers got removed because one had covid and new ones had to learn the routine in 24 hours, and then i ended up ripping my pants and couldn’t finish. everything happens for a reason tho lol.”
