Lil Nas X Returns to Work at Taco Bell as Chief Impact Officer: 'Life Has Come Full Circle' https://t.co/uV4ESGy6YS— People (@people) August 24, 2021
Lil Nas X’ first job as a teenager was at Taco Bell. Now, Taco Bell has made him their Chief Impact Officer, allowing them collaborate on an exclusive experience around his debut album Montero, which will be released on September 17th. Among other things, he’ll appear in Taco Bell's breakfast campaign and they’ll offer fan engagement experiences which will be announced later this fall. He’s also partnering with the Taco Bell foundation.
For Harper’s Bazaar’s September issue, Lil Nas X curated a playlist around the issue’s theme of icons. Listen here.
“People not having the satanic panic with Tony Hawk's blood skateboards like they did with Lil Nas X’s blood shoes is telling of how many view Black queer people.” https://t.co/PDOLopmdUS— BuzzFeed (@BuzzFeed) August 25, 2021
Tony Hawk released a limited edition skateboard infused with his own blood. The $500 skateboards sold out in under 20 minutes, and yet the outcry about blood being used that we saw when Lil Nas X released his limited edition Nike shoes filled with his own blood is nowhere to be seen. Lil Nas X initially tweeted “Tony Hawk in his Lil Nas X era” (OP note: lmaoooo), but has since deleted it and I can’t find a screenshot. He has now tweeted the following:
now that tony hawk has released skateboards with his blood painted on them, and there was no public outrage, are y’all ready to admit y’all were never actually upset over the blood in the shoes? and maybe u were mad for some other reason?— nope 👶🏾 (@LilNasX)
