During a dress rehearsal event at the New York Fashion Week, Serena Williams started to dance spontaneously probably because she was not included in the rehearsal but her husband described the moment as being "unprofessional." “When Lil Nas X calls you for dress rehearsal but you didn’t make the cut,” Serena Williams captioned the video.
Serena's husband Alexis Ohanian commented: "Unprofessional." Yet, Serena Williams opened Vogue's fashion presentation during the New York Fashion Week alongside Lil Nas X.
Vogue posted a video of the moment on their Instagram account. "Serena Williams opens Vogue World," Vogue captioned the short video. See the video here: Serena Williams opens Vogue parade at New York Fashion Week
Who is Lil Nas X
According to Spotify, “Lil Nas X is a 22-year-old award-winning rapper, singer, songwriter from Atlanta, Georgia.
Dubbed ‘an internationally recognized phenomenon’ by Billboard, he rose to fame in 2019 when he released ‘Old Town Road’ and simultaneously upended the music industry – shattering genre norms, disrupting the charts and going viral worldwide.
The song’s remix with Billy Ray Cyrus became the longest running #1 single in Billboard H*t 100 history after 19 weeks atop the chart. The 14x Platinum hit is the most certified song in RIAA history and is recognized with numerous awards including two Grammys.
After releasing his eclectic EP 7 in June 2019, which features the 6x Platinum ‘Panini’ and 2x Platinum ‘Rodeo,’ Lil Nas X returned in November 2020 with his Platinum single ‘HOLIDAY’, and followed with the culture-shifting hit ‘MONTERO (Call Me Be Your Name)’ in March 2021.
The queer anthem provoked much needed dialogue around the globe, debuted at #1 on the Billboard H*t 100, and remained atop of the Spotify Global chart for over a month straight. He delivered sensational performances of the song on the season finale of Saturday Night Live and at the 2021 BET Awards, propelling the song to #1 on the Top 40 and Rhythm Airplay charts.
Already named a fashion icon for all his incredible eye-catching looks, the multifaceted artist and internet king is preparing to release the best album of all time later this year. Montero will also include recent songs ‘SUN GOES DOWN’ and ‘INDUSTRY BABY.’”
