In the waking mind, blacks are perpetual victims and failures. Despite the tremendous worldwide success of black pop stars such as Donna Summer, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, and Whitney Houston and many others whose music repeatedly reached the top of the charts, Lizzo claims that pop music has been and is “inherently racist.” to segregate black artists.
Deluded victimizer Lizzo has also said, “I’m not making music for white people,” ignoring the white producers and promoters who made her famous, as well as the white audience that follows her. The wealthy victim uses whites to gain fame and fortune, and then she claims that she is oppressed.
“Lizzo on stage anxiety, her identity theft, Harry Styles’ music and why she can’t be defined,” byEntertainment Weekly, November 25, 2022:
It’s the day before Thanksgiving and Lizzo can barely contain her excitement. Names, she tells EW over Zoom, are already calling her name.
The 34-year-old multi-faceted rapper, singer, flutist and businesswoman can’t be blamed for wanting to enjoy a relaxing vacation. A few days earlier, she closed a string of more than two dozen dates on her Special tour, the last two nights of which were filmed in Los Angeles for the HBO Max special Lizzo: live in concert (first December 31). It’s the culmination of a standout year for her, which also included hosting Saturday night live and serving as a musical guest, launching her Emmy-winning reality competition Beware of the big Lizzo grrrlslaunching her shapewear brand Yitty, releasing her album Specialand presents his new documentary With love, Lizzo (now streaming on HBO Max)….
That’s another documentary. Now, also in the doc, you talk about the backlash about what you were wearing and people saying that you and your music weren’t black enough. Is that a stigma on pop music, because the genre can be so white that if you have a hit there, people think you’re catering to a specific demographic?
Absolutely. Well, gender is inherently racist. I think if people investigated, they would see that there is racial music and then pop music. And racial music was their way of segregating black artists from the mainstream, because they didn’t want their kids to listen to music made by black and brown people because they said it was demonic and blah blah blah. So there were these genres created almost like keywords: R&B, and then, of course, eventually hip-hop and rap were born. I think when you think of pop, you think of MTV in the ’80s talking about “We can’t play rap music” or “We can’t put this person on our platform because we’re thinking about what people in the middle of America are thinking about.” , and we all know what that code is for.
So yes, which is why, fast forwarding to 2022, we have this well-oiled pop machine, but remember that it has a racist origin. And I think the best thing I’ve ever seen is rap and hip-hop artists go pop. Now, pop music is really rap in its DNA: rap is in charge, and I think that’s great. But we forget that in the late ’80s and early ’90s, there were these massive pop diva records that were sung by black women like Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey. And I am giving that same energy. I’m giving the same energy with a little bit of rap, and I think people have to get used to me. I think that anything that is new, people will criticize it and feel that it is not for them. But once you know what it is, just like I have a friend who doesn’t like avocado but likes guacamole; It doesn’t make sense, but once you get used to something, it might be for you. So for people who don’t like pop music or don’t like black artists making pop music, you might eventually like it. It could be guacamole for them. You just have to get used to me because I’m doing good shit. You are missing out. [Laughs]…
