Lil Nas admitted that he was as big a Beyoncé fan as any other person; however, he had to decline a party invitation hosted by the star. The "Old Time Road" artist joined E! News in an interview on October 21 and revealed that the invitation, as tempting as it was, clashed with the dates of one of his concerts.

Although Lil Nas admittedly considered skipping out on the concert, he thought about his gathered fans and ended up declining the invitation. "I've actually been invited to come to one of her Renaissance parties, and that was super dope," the artist said.

"I think it was on the day of one of the shows, and I was like, 'do I completely leave my fans stranded and don't come to the show to see Beyoncé or not,' but you know I couldn't," he continued. "Some time, though, for sure."

Beyoncé released her seventh studio album, "Renaissance," earlier this year, and it had the Beehive, as well as the rest of the world, in an uproar. Lil Nas, who revealed that he was a proud member of the fan club, felt no differently.

While talking about the album in his interview, the "INDUSTRY BABY" artist said that the album made him feel "liberated" and disclosed his two favorite songs. Lil Nas listed "Church Girl" and "Heated" as his best two out of the album.

The artist explained, "The overall idea of this super duper pop legend, not even this music legend in general, going into this direction that's not really mainstream at all. I think that's just so big of her. It's liberating."

"I feel like it's really great, and we co-designed this after my tour, and the colors are beautiful, and I think there's going to be a lot of people saying the same, so I'm excited about it."

"I'm backstage, and this is, like, not a part of the show, but I'm taking a mean sh*t, so please forgive me," Lil Nas said. "I'll be right back." After the concert, he took to Twitter to reveal that he was serious about doing number two at the time. "lmao, people really thought I was joking," the artist tweeted.
