Lil Nas X's music video for new single 'Montero (Call Me By Your Name)' has a very thirsty fan in Miley Cyrus - and she DGAF who knows it.

We've said it before and we'll say it again: Miley, never change.

Grammy-winner Lil Nas dropped the eye-popping clip - in which he's seen sliding down a stripper pole to hell and giving the devil a lap dance - track three days ago.



It promptly amassed 31 million YouTube views (more than a few of them Miley, we assume). the 21-year-old later asked Insta followers what their favourite part of the video was.

"When the devil eats your a**"

'Midnight Sky' singer Miley showed her appreciation by replying: "When you're in it/when the devil eats you a**", along with a horned devil emoji.

There's sex-positivity, and there's sex-positivity! And this is sex-positivity!

Miley and Lil Nas of course have a special connection - her dad Billy Ray Cyrus teamed up with the rapper for the 2019 'Old Town Road (Remix)'.

In January 2021, the song become the highest certified song ever by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Miley's support comes as LNX faces fierce backlash from religious conservatives for his new visual. However, the singer has been shutting down critics directly on Twitter, saying last week: "There is a mass shooting every week that our government does nothing to stop. Me sliding down a cgi pole isn’t what’s destroying society."

In another, he said: "y’all saying a gay n**** twerking on a cgi satan is the end of times like slavery and the holocaust didn’t happen."

Lil Nas - also in hot water for collaborating with MSCHF on a line of Nike trainers containing a drop of a human blood - also responded to criticism from governor of South Dakota Kristi Noem.

She tweeted: "Our kids are being told that this kind of product is, not only okay, it's 'exclusive.' But do you know what's more exclusive? Their God-given eternal soul. We are in a fight for the soul of our nation. We need to fight hard. And we need to fight smart. We have to win."

Lil Nas tweeted back: "Ur a whole governor and u on here tweeting about some damn shoes. do ur job!"
