A Famous Singer Just Said She Isn’t Making Music For Whites…


American pop sensation Lizzo has often faced criticism for several things, her body and style included, but she recently spoke up about the thing that disturbs her the most – that her music is made for white people.

Yes, you read it right, Lizzo flat-out denied that she makes music for a“white audience.”

In an interview with Vanity Fair, the 34-year-old debunked claims of catering to a Caucasian audience as she called it the “biggest criticism” that she’s received in her career. The “Rumors” singer then deemed the topic of discussion as a “critical conversation” for Black music artists.

“This is probably the biggest criticism I’ve received, and it is such a critical conversation when it comes to black artists,” the singer said. “When black people see a lot of white people in the audience, they think, ‘Well, this isn’t for me. This is for them.’ The thing is, when a black artist reaches a certain level of popularity, it’s going to be a predominantly white crowd.”

The classically trained flutist then mentioned other singers who attract predominately White crowds. The Texas-native names Beyoncé, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, and Whitney Houston before including that rappers also have shows that are overwhelming white.

“I am not making music for white people,” she clarified. “I am a Black woman, I am making music from my Black experience, for me to heal myself [from] the experience we call life. If I can help other people, hell yeah because we are the most marginalized and neglected people in this country. We need self-love and self-love anthems more than anybody.”

She continued, “So am I making music for that girl right there who looks like me, who grew up in a city where she was under-appreciated and picked on and made to feel ‘unbeautiful?’ Yes. It blows my mind when people say I’m not making music from a Black perspective—how could I not do that as a Black artist?”

According to AWM, Kanye West, 45, made remarks about Lizzo’s weight on Fox News with Tucker Carlson. West said,

“When Lizzo loses 10 pounds and announces it, the bots — that’s a term for like telemarketer callers on Instagram — they attack her for losing weight because the media wants to put out a perception that being overweight is the new goal when it’s actually unhealthy.

“Let’s get aside the fact of whether it’s fashion and vogue, which it’s not. Or if someone thinks she is attractive, to each his own. It’s actually clinically unhealthy, and for people to promote that… it’s demonic.”

Carlson pushed West to explain why he felt that this is being done to people of the Black race. West had an answer in his back pocket.

“‘It’s a genocide of the black race. They want to kill us in any way they can.”

Lizzo addressed West and Tucker’s claims during a concert in Scotiabank Arena, saying:

“I feel like everybody in America got my mother******* name in [their] mother******* mouth for no mother****** reason.”
