Lil Nas X was the musical guest on the season finale of “Saturday Night Live” hosted by Anya Taylor-Joy. Nas started the episode in a musical Pride-themed sketch to raise awareness for the LBGTQ+ community before he went on to do a performance of his own. While on stage in the middle of performing his hit single “Montero,” Lil Nas X stunned audience members as his pants ripped during a choreographed routine. For wardrobe, his background dancers paired a black headscarf with patent black joggers while Nas wore lace up leather pants with a blazing flame graphic.
Later that night, he took to Twitter to assure fans that his wardrobe malfunction was in fact an accident. After clearing the air, he called the experience his “favorite night of his career” and thanked SNL for the opportunity.
i know i do a lot of planned shit but ripping my pants on live television is not one of them
