    As somebody who grew up on MTV, it’s been years since a music video was controversial like this.

  2. Of all the things going on the the World especially in the United States and Lil Nas X video is the most ‘concerning’ to Christians, boy ol’ boy I tell you, we got a problem. I challenge every ‘Christian’ or those who are so ‘OMG/shocked outrage’ to judge yourself first. This video is the least of my concerns considering there is so much more dangerous and life threading things (like being black) to think about. I guarantee you, Jesus is not thinking about this video.

    • @Thyalwaysseek your pope even likes the staff of hermes kundalini and his sun worship staff sun symbolism

      @Tom Frasiko It’s not a Wicca symbol you fool.

      @Tom Frasiko Go and educate yourself on the Triquetra you foolish little man, it is a Chistian symbol and has nothing to do with Wicca. What an ignorant cowardly fool you are. Did God not make the stars to be revered and yet instead of seeing beauty and wonder you see only evil and fear. You are a lost soul, I pity you.

  3. I see no issue with this video. It’s art, and beautifully done.

  4. I am more concern why he don’t just collaborate with NIKE instead. Why take their shoes to re-design without checking with his legal advisor?

      @faster than you Black As if Americans care about that.

    • @hbzeke He sold 666 for one pair

    • The secondary market (selling of customized shoes) for sneakers is a $1 billion industry. There are TONS of people and businesses selling customized Nike shoes and none of them collaborate with Nike.
      In fact, the same company selling the Satan Nike shoes sold Jesus Nike shoes back in 2019 and there wasn’t a peep from Nike about it.

    • @Phoebe Tan Actually, the company sold 666 pairs of shoes at $1,018 each and they sold out in 1 minute.

    He is trolling the right, IMHO.

  7. Its his way of showing people you still live, even in a culture that tells him his life and love are sinful and evil.

  8. I used to hear the same thing about mötley crüe, this is a real blast from the past

    Can’t believe broadcasters in the US still discuss about Santa Claus. It’s unbelievable!!!

  10. Love it!

    This is only a distraction from the truly pressing issues we’re facing as a nation. As far as I’m concerned lil NasX should be able to swing on a pole, lap dance for whomever he wants too and have the right to vote and to live as a free person in this country. If you don’t like his music or his video…Don’t watch it and don’t buy the music! A side from that, let’s focus on really important issues.

      @Chance Plaisier There is video of him performing to a room full of young children.

    • Thyalwaysseek | April 5, 2021 at 9:35 PM | Reply

      @Hanna Maybe stop being such a selfish immoral person and have some thought for the children instead of only thinking of yourself all the time.

    • @Thyalwaysseek hey buddy you are in control of what your children see and listen too. I have 2 young kids who never heard of this song, but I will still jam to this song, not around them. I may be immoral but what’s your excuse for being a lazy non involved parent?

    • Pastor Donkoh | April 8, 2021 at 12:40 PM | Reply

      I’ve scene interviews of thos “Lil Nas X” and he comes across as a good person. I can’t hate on the dude as much as im not a fan on the music video

    • Thyalwaysseek | April 8, 2021 at 8:02 PM | Reply

      @Hanna Hey buddy, he should not be performing to young children at all, the concert in the video looked like it was at a school and I doubt most parents even knew about it. The fact is that people like lil nas x are just a reflection of how degenerate America has become, I feel sorry for your children when you as a parent admit you are a reprobate.

  12. Honestly, the concept of Satanic shoes makes about as much sense as the old TV show My Mother the Car in which a man’s automobile was possessed by the soul of his, well.. you know… uhhhh… dead mother.

  13. That’s an awesome video by the way.

  14. Does anyone else remember the KISS comic book that was supposed to be printed using some of their blood?
    “Everything old is new again”.

  15. Again, rest of the world is looking at america like ‘why is this worth raging over and why is it on y’alls news?’

    • @dip the fact you made this political and said boogedy man made me visibly cringe lmao

    • faster than you Black | April 6, 2021 at 1:30 AM | Reply

      @dip that was trump for you guys for years and still is. And yes as a conservative we don’t want this guy selling elicit stuff to kids. His last few songs have been geared toward children and then this? Come on.

    • faster than you Black | April 6, 2021 at 1:31 AM | Reply

      @dip and we don’t need a boogeyman, we have plenty. Like the dude running drag queen story time.

    • Sean Rollins | April 8, 2021 at 8:13 AM | Reply

      At least we’re not indirectly controlled by the Catholic Church like Italy.

    • John Hamilton | April 8, 2021 at 11:39 AM | Reply

      @faster than you Black Let the parents step up to the plate.

  16. The LoveJoy Show | April 5, 2021 at 5:08 PM | Reply

    It’s all fun and games until your cabinet doors fly open and kitchen utensils levitate on their own.

  17. the fact that this is a news story is so fcking funny to me

    SEPARATION OF CHRUCH AND STATE! If you want to be religious that’s your right, but you’re right to be religious person does not give you a right to subject other humans to your religion. You Gotta be religious over there and I’ll stay right here and not be religious. Umm kay
