Lizzo may have hopped off social media to escape the trolls, but during a recent interview, the artist revealed that she makes music to make Black and trans women feel good about themselves - that's all that matters.
"As a black woman, I make music for people, from an experience that is from a black woman," she said to Rolling Stone. "I'm making music that hopefully makes other people feel good and helps me discover self-love. That message I want to go directly to black women, big black women, black trans women. Period."
But Lizzo is not leaving her white fans out in the cold.
"Yeah, there's hella white people at my shows," she said. "What am I gonna do, turn them away? My music is for everybody."
Lizzo was responding to claims by rapper Azealia Banks that Lizzo was tap dancing for the white folks:
"Lmao the fact that the public and the media has been keeping this fat girl joke going for so long is honestly peak boredom. The song is not good, nor is the dumpy fat girl spectacle live set she does. Saddest bit is that the girl is legit talented and truly only being allowed to shine so long as she allows herself to be this millennial mammy of sorts," Azealia wrote back in September 2019.
She went even further: "She knows white America loves itself a fat black wide eyed mammy and she's playing directly into it."
