The film originally made its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, detailing the journey of Lil Nas X as he performed on his Long Live Montero tour, which supported his debut album, Montero.

In the film, Lil Nas X highlights his journey as a Black and LGBTQ performer. The film is directed by Zac Manuel and Carlos López Estrada.


Speaking of Montero, Lil Nas X has addressed his relationship with the devil after an X user floated Dave Chappelle’s “Montero” joke across the timeline.

“yall gotta let call me by your name go,” Lil Nas X wrote. “me and the devil broke up 3 years ago. yall acting like chidren of divorce.”

Lil Nas X grabbed the ears of the Christian community when he revealed that he was heading into his Christian era. Hitting Twitter, Lil Nas posed the question “y’all mind if i enter my christian era?”

Ever the troll, Lil Nas X then wrote: “making christian music does not mean i can’t suck dick no more. the two are not mutually exclusive. i am allowed to get on my knees for multiple reasons.”

Hearing the news, the artist formally known as Boonk Gang, now known as “Holy Gabbana” shunned the idea. “Don’t title a Christian and make others believe it’s ok for us to live in habitual/intentional sin.”

And Lil Nas X had time, writing, “it’s really insane how yall pretend some of our pastors aren’t getting piped down before the sunday service. yall do not know jesus personally stop trying to gatekeep him”
