Lil Nas X rips his pants during a SNL performance

This weekend, Lil Nas X was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live, performing his daring “Montero” track.

While playing his famous song “Montero (Call Me by Your Name),” the singer had an astonished expression on his face and slid his hand to the front of his pants, where it stayed for the rest of the song. The Grammy winner (and EW cover star) didn’t skip a beat, leaving followers on social media wondering whether anything had gone wrong or if it was all part of his sensual performance, which included him gyrating against a stripper pole.

 The young artist confirmed the wardrobe malfunction on Twitter posts.

The teenage musician drags a stripper pole to hell and then twerks on the devil in the chart-topping tune, which has sparked outrage. Conservatives and Christians around the country united against the film, ensuring that it would only grow in popularity.
