As you already know, the legendary Tina Turner has gained her wings to sing at that Greatest of All Time concert in Heaven. Many have paid homage to Tina on social media to honor her legacy and mourn her loss. But while others simply wrote words of praise, another outspoken artist from the new generation, Lizzo, strapped on her dancing boots to honor Tina in the right way with an electrifying performance of Proud Mary at her show in Phoenix, Arizona last night.
Hours After Nebraska Passed An Anti-Abortion And Anti-Trans Bill, Lizzo Clapped Back At Lawmakers During Her Show
I really wish people would stop doing things to piss Lizzo off because we already know she bites her tongue for no one. And the voice of the people has put down her magical flute to clear her throat and make her thoughts known once again. This time, Lizzo is sounding off on Nebraska for its latest “You can’t sit with us” law involving abortion access and healthcare for trans youth. Hours after the bill was passed, Lizzo, who was performing in Omaha, immediately shared her thoughts about the ban but directed her words to the young people who may be affected by these laws. And basically, she said, “Fuck them laws! Do you boo” but in a much more professional manner.
Initial reactions to Ariana DeBose’s opening number at last week’s BAFTA ceremony went from “what is happening?” to “Oh God it’s still happening” to “what just happened?” over the course of two, very long, short minutes. Unfortunately, Ariana’s performance received so much negative attention that the BAFTA organization came forward to defend her. But then something magical happened. Upon repeated viewing, as the bizarrely staccato line, “Angela Bassett did the thing” wormed its way into our brains, making itself a cozy home there nestled amongst our cerebral folds, seemingly overnight, reactions to Ariana’s rap ode to the ladies of Hollywood became “It’s a hit!” And a star is reborn. Even though Ariana was bullied into deactivating her Twitter account, today she’s standing in her truth to say — “I had a blast!”
Lizzo Shared A Video From The Grammys That Proves Adele Did Not Walk Out On Harry Styles During His AOTY Acceptance Speech
Ben Affleck wasn’t the only attendee at Sunday’s Grammy Awards ceremony to fall victim to the all-seeing eye of Big Camera. Following Harry Styles’ win for the night’s biggest prize, Album of the Year, Adele was seen getting up from her seat during his acceptance speech, leading many viewers to believe that the president of the UK chapter of the Beyhive had walked out in protest, presumably because Beyonce didn’t win AOTY for Renaissance. However, unlike Ben, who really did appear to be passing a kidney stone roughly the same size as the rocks J Lo’s got all evening, the shot of Adele “walking out” was misleading. And Adele’s seatmate Lizzo has the video to prove it. Which, of course! Adele and Harry are both British. If Adele hasn’t walked out on James Cordon by now, she’s certainly not going to show Harry her ass.
The term “cancel culture” has become as mainstream as apple pie, even though it’s thrown around like nothing and may currently be a fairy tale phrase since not many are actually canceled. Well, Lizzo decided it was time to speak on it so people understand why those words no longer hold the same weight as they did not too many years ago.
Whenever I hear a Lizzo song, I tend to shut down because if not, I’ll get the urge to start flailing my arms and legs in an unrhythmic cadence like Chandler Bing (I can’t dance), and if you don’t get that last reference, then you may also be under the impression Lizzo exclusively makes music for white people. I think Lizzo’s music is for anyone with good taste. Yet people have been criticizing her music as needing a little splash of seasoning because, apparently, it’s whitewashed. Well, this has come up before, and she previously said that the criticisms bothered her until she got off the internet and heard from Black women in the real world who have been touched by her music. Lizzo talked about it once again during an interview on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show and says this will be the last time she talks about it, okay!
