The teaser for Lil Nas X's "Montero Show"(Instagram/@LilnasX)

Lil Nas X is channelling Oprah as he hilariously transforms his life into The Montero Show.

After being sent to the fictional cells of Montero State Prison for “Industry Baby”, Lil Nas X’s latest transformation takes him from jumpsuit to pantsuit and onto the 80s talkshow stage.

He unveiled the new look in an Instagram post showing a trailer for something called The Montero Show – and already we can’t wait to see more.

The clip sees Nas dressed in a long permed wig and full white suit on the set of his faux talk show, interviewing himself while pregnant.

The star’s clearly having fun with his new host persona as he laughs it up with an invisible crowd, getting into an emotional conversation with himself and, eventually, flipping off the camera.

The Montero Show comes as the latest in a string of hilarious marketing schemes Lil Nas X has cooked up to promote his new album.

In the last few weeks the rapper has announced a faux pregnancy, registered for baby gifts, and even went as far as throwing himself a baby shower shortly after his star-turning stints at the VMAs and the Met Gala.

“About to kick off my baby shower. trying not to cry omg,” he wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of him with a shining pregnant belly, tucking into a cupcake decorated with a picture of the Montero album cover.

“Creating this album has been therapy for me,” he said in a previous statement. “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 realised the only opinion of me that really matters is my own.”

The highly-anticipated album drops on 17 September. Knowing Lil Nas X, we’ve no doubt there’s plenty more Montero looks to come – and we can’t wait to see what he’s got up his sleeve.
