Lil Nas X announced that he would quit being gay after losing in every category he was nominated in at the 2022 Grammys .

The outspoken “Industry Baby” singer handled his loss pretty well as he instantly made a joke that threatened to break the internet. Lil Nas X had an all-around eventful night out at the Grammys in Las Vegas, and he made sure to document it all on his Twitter account.

After the ceremony had finished and he realized he’d lost all five categories he was up for, Lil Nas X tweeted, “can’t believe I lost all my Grammys. I am now no longer gay!” Within an hour the tweet had gained over 100,000 likes as well as thousands more retweets and comments.

His comment could be a reference to the fact that he won two Grammy Awards for the song “Old Town Road” before he had publicly come out as gay. He continued the joke with a tweet featuring just two emojis.

Lil Nas X was nominated for Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Melodic Rap Performance, and Best Music Video, but he lost in every category. He did take the stage and put on an impressive medley performance of his songs “Dead Right Now,” “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” and “Industry Baby” featuring Jack Harlow.

The musician showed his social media followers how much of a good time he was having throughout the night. He took selfies with Harlow, Lady Gaga, Doja Cat, and SZA, and shared them across his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
