Lil Nas X paused his hometown show in Atlanta so he could run backstage to poop.

“I’m backstage, and this is, like, not a part of the show, but I’m taking a mean shit, so please forgive me,” the rapper said, adding that he only needed “a minute or two” on the toilet.

“I’ll be right back,” the Grammy winner promised, in a now-viral video filmed by a member of the audience.

When nature calls, you better answer – even if it’s inconvenient timing.

The ‘Montero’ singer took to Twitter to confirm the incident wasn’t a joke.

“lmao people really thought i was joking,” he tweeted. “i was literally back there dropping demons into that toilet.”

Fans were quick to praise his honesty.

Lil Nas X stopping his show to run to the bathroom is the most relatable celeb moment I’ve ever heard,” one fan shared on Twitter.

“Singin’ songs And dropping bombs!” wrote another.

Lil Nas X (real name Montero Lamar Hill) began his Long Live Montero tour last month. He made headlines for his reaction to street ministry protests outside his Boston show on September 18th.

So peopel [sic] were protesting my concert last night,” Lil Nas X shared via TikTok. “So we brought them pizza.”

He added that “one of the homophobes was hot” and he “accidentally fell in love with one of the homophobic protestors.”

It seems Lil Nas X might get his sense of humour from his father, who shared a couple of hilarious Instagram Stories after the Atlanta concert as well.

“That moment I realised @lilnasx was right,” he shared in one post with the crowd in the background. “All these people are here because I didn’t wear a condom.”

He also shared a serious post praising his son’s success.

“@lilnasx I’m beyond proud of you,” he wrote. “Thinking back to this conversation we had about 4 years ago and to see your show last night, by the way was the best show I’ve seen since MJ. You was a kid with a dream and the determination to follow it. You was that one in a million.”

Lil Nas X will return to Australia over the new year period for Falls Festival and a Sydney sideshow.

Aussie fans are hopeful for a collab with The Wiggles after he shared his desire for a co-headline tour earlier this year.

“trying really hard to get the wiggles to coheadline the tour with me,” he shared out of nowhere back in April. “i will keep you guys updated.”
