Lil Nas X outrages fans with explicit ‘used tampon’ Halloween outfit

Lil Nas X may have taken the blood and gore a little too far for Halloween this year.

The US rapper, 24, was always going to push boundaries with his spooky season costume – at this point, he’s well renowned for his outlandish fashion choices – but nobody could’ve predicted he would dress as a used tampon.

Yes, you’ve read that right. The two-time Grammy winner – real name Montero Lamar Hill – confidently sported a pink wig with an ombre dress, which was coloured red from the shoulders and white at the hem.

Finishing off the outrageous look, Lil Nas wore knee-high white boots and carried a lengthy string attached to his dress.

If the costume wasn’t enough, Lil Nas took the theatrics a step further, posting a video which showed him emerging from a giant, 3D poster of a very anatomically detailed vagina.

The singer’s look has attracted a fair amount of backlash, with many accusing the star of appropriating female struggles:

Lil Nas, whose fans have been eagerly awaiting new music from the rapper for almost two years, fiercely defended himself against criticism.

“I been silent for nearly 2 years y’all are not finna [going to] pretend to be mad about a tampon costume. Let me at least get new music out first,” he wrote on X.

The Old Town Road singer also hit back at a tweet from British influencer Oli London, who had written, “Singer @LilNasX openly MOCKS women’s periods by dressing as a blood covered Tampon and filming himself ripping through a mock vagina. Could he stoop any lower?”

London, who is known for having had more than 30 cosmetic procedures to look South Korean, copped an expletive-laden clap-back from Lil Nas.

“u had surgery to look south korean for the rest of your life, i was a c**t tampon for 1 halloween. please perish,” the rapper wrote.

This certainly isn’t the first time Lil Nas has made headlines for his outrageous outfits.

He walked the Met Gala red carpet near-naked earlier this year – his ensemble made up entirely of glitter, crystals and pearls – with only a G-string and metallic paint covering his modesty.

Beyond his fashion forwardness, Lil Nas has also become well-known for his controversial creative expression.

Lil Nas managed to take things a step further with the released of Industry Baby shortly after, with the film clip featuring a censored nude shower scene as the rapper gyrated on the floor alongside several, also nude, male backup dancers.
