Lizzo is ALL over the news today…
First up, she released another video for “Good As Hell” – (remember, the first one came out in 2016). But since her songs are weirdly just now entering the zeitgeist, she and her label decided to remake it, help boost streams, and nab that second no. 1 single.
Taking place at Louisiana’s Southern University, the video follows real students as they prepare for the school’s homecoming game. Stakes are high for the SU Fabulous Dancing Dolls dance team and Human Jukebox marching band, but thankfully Lizzo is on hand to lift their spirits ahead of the nerve-wracking day.
Her uplifting lyrics narrate each character’s storyline, starting with a cheerleader that is down in the dumps over her relationship. “Woo, child, tired of bulls–t / go on, dust your shoulders off, keep it moving / yes, Lord, tryna get some new s–t / in there, swimwear, going to the pool s–t,” the Grammy-nominated artist sings as the cheerleader gets ready for the game with the help of her teammate. “Come now, come dry your eyes / you know you a star, you can touch the sky / I know that it’s hard but you have to try / if you need advice, let me simplify.”
Then, of course, there was last night’s controversial appearance at the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves game, in which she generated a firestorm of backlash for wearing a black t-shirt dress with the backside cut-out to reveal her bare behind. Many felt it was wildly inappropriate, with some even calling for the Staples Center to ban her.
Which is all ridiculous, of course, as Lizzo has ALWAYS been about body positivity, and to suddenly be SHOCKED by that is to miss the entire point of her career.
But whatever. Watch below, and read more about the OUTRAGE here.
