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!
“You could have had a bad bitch,
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!
