To the delight of his fans, singer and rapper Lil Nas X revealed earlier this week that he’s heading out on his first North American and European tour.
The ‘Long Live Montero Tour’ will kick off September 6th in Detroit, and will be followed by 13 other dates in North America, including Chicago, Toronto, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Nashville, Miami, Los Angeles and San Francisco. It will be followed by dates in Europe in November.
One US state the gay superstar won’t be playing this time around is Texas. The ‘Industry Baby’ hitmaker took to Twitter to explain why.
“i’m sorry i’m not coming to texas for tour. my ex lives out there.”
i’m sorry i’m not coming to texas for tour. my ex lives out there.

At the time of writing, his tweet had over 200k likes in just over 12 hours.
Whether he was being serious or joking (we suspect the latter), his fans had plenty to say, from disappointed Texanites to those imploring him to visit their own particular state.
as someone who once moved to a different continent to get away from family, this is a very relatable tweet https://t.co/k1i7GAslvx
