Lil Nas X To Perform At The 2021 MTV Video Music Awards

Will LNX’s performance at this year’s VMAs stir up even more controversy?

Next month, chart-topping rapper Lil Nas X will perform at another live industry event. This year’s MTV Video Music Awards will be held at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, and the 22-year-old entertainer has been announced as one of the performers.

Following the BET Awards in June, Lil Nas X made news and sparked debate. That performance included the “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” rhymer kissing one of his male backup dancers which triggered some viewers.

Benzino, the co-founder of The Source magazine, was one of the most vocal opponents of Lil Nas X’s performance at the BET Awards. “That s### BET pulled yesterday was lame [as f###],” he wrote at the time. It was too awkward, too irresponsible, too forced, and too unrelated to the prizes to be considered. Homie isn’t even that hot for music anymore.”

T.I. and Boosie Badazz were also after Lil Nas X. LNX was permitted to express his sexual interest to guys on television, but DaBaby received flak for homophobic remarks he made at the Rolling Loud Miami festival.

This isn’t the first time Lil Nas X has appeared on the VMAs stage. At the 2019 Video Music Awards, the Georgia native performed the 7 EP track “Panini.” In 2019, his song “Old Town Road (Remix)” with Billy Ray Cyrus won Song of the Year and Best Direction.

The MTV Video Music Awards are set to air on Sunday, September 12 at 8 p.m. ET in 2021. The performance will also feature Machine Gun Kelly, Lorde, Camila Cabello, and Olivia Rodrigo. The identities of the remaining artists will be revealed at a later date.

This year’s candidates are led by pop sensation Justin Bieber (7). Megan Thee Stallion, a hip hop star, received the second-most nominations (6). Lil Nas X is one of handful artists to have five VMA nominations, including Drake and Doja Cat.

“Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” is up for Video Of The Year, Video For Good, Best Direction, Best Art Direction, and Best Visual Effects at the MTV Video Music Awards. Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP,” DJ Khaled and Drake’s “Popstar,” Doja Cat and SZA’s “Kiss Me More,” Ed Sheeran’s “Bad Habits,” and The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” are the other VOTY candidates.

50 Cent Warns T.I. To Stay Away From Him After Latest Verzuz Challenge

50 Cent Warns T.I. To Stay Away From Him After Latest Verzuz Challenge

50 Cent does not appear to be amused by T.I.’s remarks. The Atlanta rapper has been baiting the Queens, New York veteran into a Verzuz fight!

T.I. chastised 50 Cent last week for no apparent reason.

As a result, most hood people are aware of a street code. “Whatever you say behind my back, be large and bold enough to proclaim it in front of my face with your chest.”

At least, that’s one of the laws that 50 Cent, a rapper from South Jamaica Queens, lives by.

This is why he took to social media to criticize T.I. for smiling in his face at the BMF premiere in Atlanta just days after he sat on a stage and mocked New York rappers, specifically 50 Cent, just a week before.

T.I. appeared on the “Big Facts” podcast a few weeks ago, where he talked about his infamous Crime Stoppers commercial, which 50 Cent re-posted in July 2020 in an attempt to insult the Atlanta rapper.

“Expect to be kicked when you’re fighting a man without arms,” T.I. said. “N##### do their best… They will use all means at their disposal to harm you… They don’t realize I don’t care a f###. I am content. I am aware of my identity. I’m aware of what I’ve done… I m################################################################################################### I spend much of my time alone.”

“This was a week ago,” Fif said in a comment area next to a pair of emoji eyes. This n#### was just telling me about a comedy show backstage that he was working on. I don’t like all this s###, and it wouldn’t be a good idea to come near me again; please keep away.”

If you get the Scooby-Doo look after seeing that, it’s because you comprehend 50’s point of view. Especially if you’ve been keeping up with the news.

T.I. attended the Atlanta BMF screening and challenged 50 Cent to another Verzuz, according to AllHipHop.com. “50, I’m waiting on you!” the “Whatever You Want” rapper said after the BMF showrunner brought Tip out during his set.

T.I. has been with 50 Cent since July of 2020, and if it seemed impossible then, it certainly appears to be impossible now.

Kanye West Shares X-Rays of Son Saint’s Broken Arm

Kim Kardashian disclosed a few weeks ago that her five-year-old son Saint had fractured his arm, and now Kanye West is showing fans the X-rays.

On Saturday morning (September 25), the 44-year-old rapper posted three photographs of his broken arm to his Instagram account. The shattered arm belongs to Saint, according to the patient name on the X-rays.

Kanye did not add a caption to the snap, instead allowing the images to speak for themselves.

Saint was in a wheelchair after breaking his arm, and Kim uploaded photographs of him in a wheelchair on September 10.

“Who do you think cried more today?” she asked at the time. Today, my baby shattered his arm in several places. “I’m not in good shape.”

This isn’t the first time Saint has had to deal with a serious health problem in the last year. Kim disclosed in May that he had tested positive for COVID-19, and that she and the other children had also tested positive.
