Lil Nas X has hit back at people accusing the "MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)" singer of only being gay for success.

Following the release of his huge "MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)" single last month, Lil Nas X has shares some tweets responding to various accusations that he's only gay for success.

Lil Nas X began his response on Twitter yesterday (20 April) by writing, "Y’all love saying i’m being gay for success but can’t name 5 successful gay male artists in the last 10 years to save your life."

Later, he responded to a tweet (which has since been deleted), adding, "I’m not dissing anyone. I'm acknowledging the fact that we aren’t usually as successful as our peers. What’s not clicking starbucks spellman."

In a third response, Lil Nas X tweeted, "It’s a million n***** in the industry that make nothing but songs about women and y’all don’t complain. But i make my first song about a n**** and now it’s my entire artistry. Y’all crack me up man."
