Lil Nas X hurt his feet wearing heels for the first time

Lil Nas X at the 2019 American Music Awards

Lil Nas X really hurt his feet when he wore heeled boots for the first time at the American Music Awards.

The Old Town Road hitmaker reflected on his year in fashion with Variety and said the neon green tuxedo, zebra print shirt and gloves he wore to the ceremony back in November was the wildest thing he's ever worn.

"I feel like this is the craziest outfit I've ever put on," the 20-year-old rapper said of the two-piece creation by Christopher John Rogers. "Whenever they panned to the audience, I stood out."

However, the Grammy-winning star suffered in the name of fashion.

"It was my first time wearing shoes with heels and it hurt so much," he complained.

Nas, who works with stylist Hodo Musa, also revealed that the rhinestone suit he wore to the MTV Video Music Awards in August last year was created by womenswear designer Christian Cowan and heavily influenced by late music icon Prince.

"Definitely Prince-inspired - I wanted to bring that into the future and do a remix," he explained.

But Nas' greatest fashion memory was back in October, when he was invited to Beyonce and JAY-Z's epic star-studded Halloween bash, and put in the extra work to make sure his outfit would stand out.

He replicated rap mogul Cam'ron's iconic head-to-toe pink fur look at the Baby Phat fashion show in 2002, and Nas told Variety that he made the costume himself.

"I had been putting this together for a month pretty much because it's hard to get that (faux) fur material," he shared. "It was a very beloved costume."
