Obsessed.

The love I have for Lizzo has no bounds.

Once I discover something that makes all the cells in my body sing, I become obsessed.

This happens to me, typically with brands. But people, too. When I love something, I become a fan.

I HAVEN’T EVEN LISTENED TO ALL OF LIZZO’s MUSIC YET.

First, I was hooked on “Juice” (because, hello, infectious beats and SELF LOVE message) and now I am hooked on “Truth Hurts.” A few days ago, I heard the cover of The Bee Geez ‘Stayin’ Alive’ for the film, Happy Death Day 2U and seriously almost lost my shit.

I wish I had seen her when she came here to Oregon in July! Damn!

These lyrics:

“You could have had a bad bitch,

non-committal,

Helped you with your career,

just a little,

You’re supposed to hold me down …

But you’re holding me back and

That’s the sound, of me

not calling you back.”

I mean, it really doesn’t get much more brilliant than that.

Lizzo is like this ball of light in a very sad and devastating time. She reminds me the revolution is here.

There is so much negative imagery, so much violence, so much harshness we are subject to on a regular basis regarding our media. Lizzo is a radical alternative.

She reminds me to live my life loud, to come out of hiding and EMBODY JOY.

FUCK YES, LIZZO!
