More concerning, he actually last posted on December 17, according to Billboard, in a series of now-deleted tweets that acknowledged he had tested positive for Covid-19, reportedly saying: “Covid really sucks.”
He even had to pull out of the UK’s Capital FM Jingle Ball one week before, although a statement from Capital FM at the time only said “members” of several acts’ teams, including his, had tested positive.
That announcement came the day after he appeared at the iHeartRadio Z100 Jingle Ball 2021 on December 10 in New York – in what may be his last public sighting.
Given the fact that he’s actively tweeted almost daily to his 7.5 million followers since his account was created in July 2016, concerned Nas devotees are now flooding Twitter and wondering whether he is “OK”, bluntly asking “Where TF is Lil Nas X?” and tweeting directly at him, writing, “Where are you?” and, “You haven’t tweeted in two months king, hope you’re OK.”
Others expressed being “legitimately concerned” about a connection between his now-deleted Covid-19 posts and his current health status.
I’m legitimately concerned about @LilNasX. The last time he tweeted, he had Covid. (That tweet has since been deleted.) For someone who consistently and seemingly joyfully used social media to connect with his fans and promote his artistry to just disappear is…unsettling.
Representatives for Lil Nas X did not respond to a request for comment.
Just two weeks ago, the rapper was nominated for several 2022 NAACP Image Awards, including entertainer of the year, and he recently topped Rolling Stone’s list of the most stylish musicians right now.
But he posted nothing to acknowledge either one.
Plus, his Industry Baby has reached platinum status, something allegedly celebrated by Nas’ brother online on Thursday, but the singer did not react.
He’s even set to appear in a just-announced comic book, but again there has been nothing.
The virtual vanishing by Nas, whose Montero single is nominated for Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Best Music Video at the 2022 Grammy Awards, flies in the face of his stated love for social platforms.
“That was probably one of the first places where I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is for me,’” he told CBS Sunday Morning about using social media in an interview that aired on January 2. “It’s like my actual family.”
Perhaps the newly single singer is taking a well-deserved, extended vacation before a potential appearance in Las Vegas on April 3 for the Grammys, which were postponed from January 31 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Or he could be back in the studio, working on his next big, steamy showstopper.
Either way, fans will likely continue to flood social media in the search for answers about his disappearance.
