“If you really don’t like my ass, you can kiss it”
Lizzo has been the topic of discussion following her unique attire to the LA Lakers vs Minnesota Timberwolves game Sunday night. During the performance of her song “Juice”, by the Laker Girls, the “Truth Hurts” singer was shown on the big screen singing along and twerking which revealed her cut out T-shirt dress, telling all of victoria’s secrets.
It’s no secret Lizzo had a good time, in an interview with Fox Sports, she told the outlet that she had her eyes on a particular person throughout the night. “Both teams are great. I’m personally cheering for No. 32,” she said speaking of Karl Anthony Towns. “That’s my baby!”
Opinions circulated the net in regards to Lizzo’s neck turning dress. “To be honest, that type of behavior has nothing to do with her size. It wouldn’t be cute for anyone to act that way.” One comment read.
“That Lizo Chick Losing It.” Baltimore Boxer, Gervonta Davis tweeted.
Despite the controversy behind her outfit, Lizzo took to Instagram live to address the critics.
“I know I’m shocking because you’ve never seen, in a long time a body like mine doing whatever it wants to do and dressing the way that it dresses and moving the way that it moves.” she began “I don’t want to censor myself because I’m famous or because everyone is looking at me now.”
Amid all of the controversy, Lizzo dropped her music video for her hit single, “Good As Hell.” The video features Louisiana’s Southern University showing students as they prepare for their 2019 Homecoming game. This would be the second video for the single, which originally released in 2016 apart of her Coconut Oil EP. The single wasn’t a major hit at the time but over the years has gained some recognition and even featured in an episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race. Could the risque outfit have just been a publicity stunt in the wake of her single? If so, checkmate for the singer and her marketing team.
