Ever since his rise to the top of the charts with "Old Town Road," viral superstar Lil Nas X has been rumored to be the owner of a former Nicki Minaj fan account, operating @NasMaraj on Twitter. He has denied that fact but now, it seems like he's finally come to terms with his preferences, finally being comfortable enough in his own skin and telling the world that he is a Nicki Minaj stan.

Taking to Twitter in the middle of the night, Lil Nas X admitted that he is a big fan of the Queens rapper.

"Life is too short to pretend you’re not a barb," wrote the rapper on Twitter, earning over 18,000 retweets so far. Clearly, people are excited about the reveal. 

Considering the fact that he collaborated with Cardi B on his last project, some fans assumed that he was shading the rapper by siding with Nicki in their neverending feud. He insisted that that was not the case.

"They are both dope successful artists who still have so much potential. & i’m so thankful cardi hopped on rodeo. also i don’t shade ppl, only positivity here," he wrote, clarifying his stance.

It only took a full year for Lil Nas X to work up the courage to reveal his love for Nicki Minaj but the fans are happy it finally came out.
