Lil Nas X is mad he was not nominated for any BET Award this year.
He talked with Rolling Stone and said BET needed to make sure that he was not a satanist before considering him for a performance.
“The response we got back was, ‘We need to clarify a few things,’” a member from the rappers team told Rolling Stone. “Is he a Satanist? Are there going to be elements of devil worship or satan in the show? I was so taken aback by it. We’d been fielding those questions from people for months by that point after the video and the shoes, and of course the answer was no and we obviously got the slot. But it blew our minds.”
Lil Nas X released Satan Shoes ahead of his Montero release. The video depicted him giving the devil a lapdance before killing him.
“They say that ‘no one cheered louder’ for me than them that night,” Lil Nas X added, “but the BET Awards team was actually very upset that I kissed my dancer onstage and vocalized their discontent with multiple members of my team immediately following the performance.”
