Lil Nas X Receives Romance Jokes from Jack Harlow On Saturday Night Live

Rapper Jack Harlow, who last weekend served as host of Saturday Night Live for the first time, didn’t hesitate to discuss his relationship with “Industry Baby” singer Lil Nas X.

Fans have been rooting for the duo since the two musicians worked together on that song, even pleading with them to reshoot the music video so that Harlow could appear with X in the naked moment.

During his opening monologue, Harlow addressed the claims that he and X were more than just friends. He also addressed the accusations that he is 5 feet 10 inches tall and was “created by the CIA.” We need to speak about another rumor he addressed, though.

“I’ve heard people try to romantically link me and Lil Nas X as an item,” Harlow said, drawing cheers from the audience. “I’m going to tell you right now: No, everything that happened between us was casual and consensual and one of the best nights of my entire life – working with him, working with him.”

Fans wished that Harlow had been present in the memorable shower scene in “Industry Baby” when the video first debuted. In a hot pink jail outfit, the film depicts X and Harlow spending time in Montero State Prison.
