A great entertainer says what we’re all feeling, and since it’s been a hell of a year, Lil’ Nas X hung up his adorable pink cowboy hat and traded it for a skin tight bondage getup to ride a stripper pole to hell.
Lil Nas X’s new music video Montero has everything: he plays all the characters in a magical biblical world, Adam in the Garden of Eden, the seductive serpent, his own judge and judy condemning him to hell where he booty bounces for the devil, also played by himself, where spoiler alert!
