Lil Nas X Explains What a “Panini” Is & Where the “X” in His Name Comes From

Hey “Panini,” what you even meanie? This week, Lil Nas X sat down with <i>GQ</i> to answer burning questions from fans–including the meaning behind his second hit single. “Panini is a character from a [Cartoon Network] TV show called <i>Chowder,</i>” he explained. “She represents fans who love you while you’re small, but don’t love you when you get to a certain height of success, pretty much.” Lil Nas (real name: Montero Lamar Hill) also came clean about why his rap moniker ends in an “X.” “I’m the 10th version of Lil Nas,” he jokingly confesses. “When they were making us in the factory, we just came out this way.” Lil Nas X also said in his interview that he can sing without Autotune and that he can whistle the <i>Jeopardy</i>! theme song.
