           She's visually done the same shit that Nicki Minaj has done.
Sep 09th 2019

                They should have called Niki one too.
Sep 09th 2019

                To be fair, I thought Nicki in the jungle eating bananas was coon-ish.

It wasn't all body shaming. She critiqued the white power structure

Isn't she an artist? Why isn't she putting out anything? Can someone give me some of her projects I need to check out?

Does she really just sit around taking shots at other artists all the time?

i cant stand her trash ass dumb ass bullshit ass...and her idiotic takes on anything
which makes it hard to actually listen to and enjoy her music (most likely never buying her shit again).

i honestly dont know why she is like this. its so unnecessary.
lizzo is the truth the light that brings the fire
an azaelia-lizzo track *would* be fire (imo), but....
instead we have this.

It was an informal live video. She’s brilliant and her more scripted/researched videos are really good. She always has thoughtful comments, largely because actually she does the work to form and backup her opinions, i.e. reading, engaging scholars, studying theories, research

Didn't know who Lizzy was but I checked her on Spotify. I just saw her eating cake, stuffing her face and wearing clothes that make her look silly. So year she's coonin for sure but she'll get a pass or we'll just overlook it.

I mistyped in the OP..

I don't think Lizzo is cooning at all. being silly or doing goofball shit doesn't automatically make you a coon.

she wants to celebrate herself, partly for being fat? have at it. she'd still prolly be doing the same goofy shit if she were a size 2.

From what I saw on the video it looks like cooning imo. There's ways to be silly and fun without making it look like you setting folks back 50 years.

Fuck this shit.

Someone tell Banks to shut the fuck up and put out music. "212" was how long ago? Meanwhile, all mostly anyone knows her for is her crazy antics and shitty, asshole opinions.

And neither would most people.

In response to Reply # 0


          

I definitely noticed that the article didn't fully address her critique of how the industry likes to portray black people (women specifically) and what white folks like to see from us. They fully quoted the part about Lizzo being fat and plucked the part about Adele being fat from that part of what she said lol. The MF's slick.
True, she's unnecessarily combative and outright crazy most of the time, but she made some good points in there. ****Thing is, I don't think it matters how credible the person is who makes those points. They're gonna get labeled a "hater" and all that silliness.****
Most of OKP stay shitting on critiques of white power unless approved by white power, but black folks by and large have accepted white supremacy as their lord and savior anyway, so yall ain't abnormal.

It's a gossip article that's on some cancel culture crap. Clearly the writer is being disingenuous so that they can highlight AB as doing more shit show antics. And that stupid 'Hater' term is just used to be dismissive of those points she was trying to make.

When I drop her shit in the club.. EVERY BIG GIRL, EVERY WHITE GIRL, MEXICAN GIRL, BLACK GIRL ETC.. starts shouting that shit

Many of the reasons Lizzo is popping are the SAME reason Adele is popping though

2 big girls on their diva shit (slightly different takes) but still not giving a fuck...

Their BIG songs are some post break up anthems (Truth Hurts, Rolling In The Deep)

Every time Lizzo shows up on TV she SHUTS SHIT DOWN. So the talent only solidifies her standom

is she over the top? Hell yes... she was playing the flute and twerking years ago... But people see that "I dont give a fuck" attitude and want to live vicariously through her confidence.

I am not talking about WHAT they do.. I am talking about what they inspire and how they connect with the audience...

The only question you ever need to ask when you see something popping is what is that person (the one popping) inspiring and or reinforcing in the fan..

Everyone looks at someone (they like) and sees a part of themself they like and or want to project..

I am saying that what THEY inspire is extremely similar although it may present different

49. "U're talking what sells. We're talking Black empowerment"
In response to Reply # 43


          

and Black self-respect through the ability to present a "black normalcy" of sorts and how this is very often at odds with what sells... and why. No disrespect, but what you've contributed here seems to completely miss the point.
It's news to anyone here that Lizzo is popular or *why* she's is popular. We also know she's actually talented (at least I do, as I was the one who posted her Tiny Desk concert in praise of said talent). Ask tho, why in 2019 is there no black version of Adele who's loved by all those races as Adele is? Why don't white folks fuck with that? No, we're not begging them to or saying we need/want them to... but we notice that they don't unless there is some kind of (usually niggerish) novelty attached to it. Homely Black woman in a flowing dress, getting all the awards for just being a good singer/songwriter. That ain't what they want from a Black woman. That is the critique for the most part.
*I realize I've spoken to you about industry manipulation before, and you always seem to deny it, so if that's the road we're going down, please just say you disagree and we'll save alotta time.*



>is she over the top? Hell yes... she was playing the flute and
>twerking years ago... But people see that "I dont give a fuck"
>attitude and want to live vicariously through her confidence.


Right, and that'd probably work no matter what race you are... but if you're a heavy-set Black woman, you almost have to do that instead of just being... Adele. No, we're not saying Lizzo shouldn't be herself or whatever wild "but why can't black folks" shit ppl gonna say in response. Just saying we notice the double standard. If you're fine with it, that's on you. If you wanna change it, how you do so is also on you. If you don't notice it, again, let's just agree to disagree.

In response to Reply # 49

>black version of Adele who's loved by all those races as Adele
>is?

There is no black version of Adele because Adele lucked the fuck out. When her first album dropped she was probably seen at the same level as say Lianna La Havas... Talented... Mercury Awards level acclaim but not the monster she became.

With Amy passing there was this huge void and her essentially jumping back out on 21 as the White Aretha (Thank err Rick Rubin) filled that void.

At the time she blew on Columbia Rick Rubin was co chair and Rob Stringer (british exec) was the other co chair.

So you have one of the "best" record producers/reducers over the past 20 years and someone intent on blowing up british talent and a talented artist that can fill the nostalgia void Amy left and bong.

now...

After her success, there was another British Artist that COULD have scaled like that. Emile Sande. She tore through the UK sold millions and was very much the next big export. They tried to break her in US and at the time she was already over 2million sold in UK.

She comes here and its crickets... Not the same reception Adele had (and later Sam Smith would have). Think she topped out at 200k

Now back to the question why...

There IS a fundamental industry/radio issue that has always existed. If you have 2 artists that have the same exact song 1 white & 1 black the white artist is automatically going to pop radio vs the black artist that will start at urban and then scale or "crossover". (Streaming has helped make this a non-factor though) but in Adele's time that wasnt yet the case.

So if what can happen is a song like lets say John Legend "All Of Me" will start at Urban A/C... THEN has to go to Urban R&B/Hip Hop THEN Pop radio.

w/o the gravitas and budget it is SUPER hard for a new artist to scale that wall.. which is why streaming has become so important BUT where streaming fails you is your dope piano power ballad is now playlisted with a ton of other piano ballads... so it doesn't stand out (as it would on radio) it purposely fits in.

So in order to get a black artist like Adele to scale you have to first... get black people to support an artist that isn't turnt up in any way at streaming and/or shows then at radio THEN hope the budget (or personnel) is still there to take it to younger demo at pop radio.

In contrast

Lizzo sat around with slow growth for years. Then got a couple of Licensing Syncs in 2018/19 and the label was able to follow up with radio and marketing to finally connect the dots.. this all happened to occur in a time where women in rap is finally a thing and BONG.

I would love to yell out some of those lyrics like the ‘sing in single’ one and be celebrated + paid for it. Meanwhile I am sure she has paid off any student debt she had from those years studying music.
