Lil Nas X is Thrilled About Getting Mentioned in an ‘iCarly’ Joke; Gets Invited Onto the Show

iCarly was a defining Nickelodeon show of the late 2000s/early 2010s, and there has been enough buzz about the series since it ended in 2012 that a revival debuted on Paramount+ this summer. The finale of the new season debuted today (August 26), and it featured a funny reference to Lil Nas X, who was pleased with the nod!

In the episode, "iReturn to Webicon," the characters find themselves outdoors, seemingly in an unfortunate situation. One of the gang, Millicent Mitchell (Jaidyn Triplett), asks desperately, “Is this hell?” Another, Harper Bettencourt (Laci Mosley), replies with a reference to the “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” video, saying, “No! Hell at least has Lil Nas X!”

The rapper caught wind of the clip and seemed excited about the mention, tweeting, “oh my god let’s goooo icarly mention.”

Lil Nas X's tweet caught the eye of Ali Schouten, the showrunner for the iCarly revival, who invited the rapper onto the show!:

Whilst show writer Danny Fernandez tweeted:

Meanwhile, Lil Nas X just revealed that his album Montero is set for release on September 17, writing, “creating this album has been therapy for me. i’ve learned to let go of trying to control people’s perception of who i am, what i can do, and where i will be. i’ve realized the only opinion of me that really matters is my own.”
