Yesterday, Sean “Diddy” Combs hosted The Team Love Dance-A-Thon, anInstagram livestream which featured over 100,000 viewers looking in on celebrities having a great time quarantined in their million-dollar houses. Whoopee! It was for charity, though, with the money raised (over $4 million) going to the non-profit Team Love x Direct Relief COVID-19 fund. And it featured a bunch of celebrities like LeBron James, Shaquille O’Neal, Snoop Dogg, Drake,a pregnant Ciara, and Russell Wilson. Apparently Diddy didn’t know Ciara is pregnant. Eye roll.
Two more celebrities made an appearance including Diddy’s ex Jennifer Lopez and her fiancé Alex Rodriguez. They were all cool with each other. But it looked like what was not cool for Diddy was Lizzo shaking her ass, because he shut her down while allowing reality show person Draya Michele to do the same thing. But Diddy claims he wasn’t twerk-shaming Lizzo, and blamed it on curse words.
JLo, who was with Diddy from 1999 to 2001, told her ex-piece that her new-piece is a huge fan (via USA Today):
“Puffy, you have to know this, because I don’t think you know this. This guy right here is your biggest fan from the Bad Boy era,” said Lopez. “Any party we do, anything it’s like, “Put up Puffy and Mase.””
“I appreciate the love, A-Rod,” the beaming, Yankee-cap wearing Diddy said. He called up the “Been Around the World” remix featuring Mase and the seated Rodriguez cheered and swilled a beer while Lopez stood to move.
“He leaves the dancing to me,” she said, before Rodriguez stood up and legged out some footwork.

Of course, A-Rod can’t dance. He’s only good at three things: baseball, doping, and coronavirus consultations! JLo then danced with Diddy to Elvis Crespo’s “Suavemente” and joked that she taught him to dance like that:
“I probably taught you that.”
Diddy and J Lo are dancing to Suavemente on IG Live with over 100K viewers 😂😂😂😂 They’re raising money towards coronavirus efforts. Dope to see the former couple reunited. pic.twitter.com/1skhHEX3T8

As for Lizzo, Entertainment Tonight says things got a bit awkward when she came on the scene and started twerking to a rap song which sounds like something my best friend would listen to in her car–which means it’s NSFW. Diddy slid back onto camera and interrupted his sons, who were dancing along with Lizzo from their own house, and asked that they play something more “family friendly.”
“Whoa, whoa, whoa! It’s Easter Sunday, let’s play something a little more family friendly.”
Lizzo apologized profusely and promised to change the music:
“Sorry, sorry, sorry! Let’s do something fun. Well, don’t play that kind of… play something I can bop to.”
Later, Draya Michele made an appearance and twerked to Back That Ass Up, to which Diddy emphatically commended her:
“You killed that! I think that was one of the top performances.”
People noticed Diddy’s difference in reaction to seeing a thin-woman back that ass up and a thick-woman back that ass up:
“But Lizzo was a “no” and embarrassed????? Hmmm I’m a little confused now…We need to keep the same energy-I don’t like this.”
“IF LIZZO CANT DO IT DRAYA CANT DO IT EITHER.”
“Ok… I get annoyed with Lizzo sometimes but bruh, this was simply unfair.”
But don’t worry, it was purely because of the music! So explained Diddy after he got shit. Although, he didn’t explain why he had no problem with the blasphemous curse words in Back That Ass Up.
“There’s one thing that I want to make clear. My queen, my sister Lizzo, when I stopped the music it was ’cause it had a lot of curses in there, not ’cause she was twerking. She’s one of the best twerkers in the world. Let’s keep that clear. It wasn’t about twerking. You’re allowed to twerk on Easter. There was a lot of cursing in the record. And I don’t need child services knocking on my door right now, you understand? So that’s why I stopped the record. Lizzo, we love you and everybody stop looking for the negative, look for the positive!”
Lizzo seemed to feel no hard feelings, and reposted Diddy’s explanation. Sorry, Jillian Michaels! I know you thought you finally got Lizzo. But if you’re looking for a fellow fat shamer, you’ll just have to wait for Piers Morgan to come out of quarantine.
