Lil Nas X has already declared he will “never trust pants again.”
The “Call Me By Your Name” singer made an appearance during the May 24th episode of The Tonight Show and, in addition to sharing details on his upcoming project, Montero, he recalled the breezy moment he first realized his clothing started to—um, lose a few threads—during his recent Saturday Night Live performance.
“So, I was pretty much going down the pole, you know, doing my little sexy drop down,” he told host Jimmy Fallon. “And boom—I feel air!”
Slowly but surely, in a split second, the 22-year-old realized his pants were coming undone. “I was like, ‘Okay, there’s definitely a breeze going on,'” he continued. “And I also felt some popping still happening when I was down there.”
By “down there,” the singer is referring to the pole he was dancing on right before the much-talked-about rip happened. Lil Nas X also recalled hoping that his malfunction wouldn’t actually be on TV—but then remembered he was on a very live show.
