Lil Nas X found himself having to rush off for an emergency bathroom break during a show in Atlanta earlier this week.
On Tuesday (September 27), the “Old Town Road” star performed at the Coca-Cola Roxy as part of his Long Live Montero tour. During one of the show’s costume change interludes, Lil Nas X remained off stage for an extra few minutes due to nature calling.
Sharing a message over the venue’s speaker system from the bathroom, the rapper told the crowd: “I’m backstage and this is not a part of the show, but I’m taking a mean shit.”
He added: “I’m gonna be, like, a minute or two, and I’ll be right back.”

Last month, Lil Nas X teamed up with M&M’S to release his own limited edition candy. The pastel-colored candies feature the rapper’s face and benefit the ongoing Sing For Hope Pianos initiative. The special collaboration was released on September 21 and is available for purchase at M&M’S Times Square store in New York City, while supplies last.
Fans can also purchase the candies online via a special landing page created for the project.
The Lil Nas X-inspired packs contain a one-pound bag of blue, pink and purple candy featuring the standard “M” logo, along with Lil Nas’ face, butterflies and hearts. The candy is delivered in a commemorative box paying homage to the 23-year-old star.
“Growing up I would have never thought my face would be on M&M’S but here we are, and it’s amazing,” Lil Nas X said in a statement. “And I love that we’re giving back to the art and music communities at the same time.”
Meanwhile, Lil Nas X fans have been left wondering whether he’s teased the identity of his new boyfriend after posting a pair of photos of himself and another man.
In one of the pictures shared on Thursday (September 29), a man poses for a quick photo opp with his back turned to the camera showing off a blue-and-white Montero varsity jacket from Lil Nas X’s latest merch drop. In the second photo, the rapper has his arms around the man whose face is covered with a star emoji.
