Lizzo took offense to a dose of truth last week after rap and fashion icon Kanye West criticized the rival pop star’s embrace of the pro-fat movement as “demonic.”
In a wide-ranging interview on Fox News this past Thursday, West complained today’s media is glorifying obesity and highlighted routine outrage over Lizzo whenever the 34-year-old mascot of the “body positivity” movement makes progress on her own health.
“Lizzo works with my trainer,” West said. “When Lizzo loses 10 pounds and announces it, the bots, that’s a term for people like telemarketer callers on Instagram, they attack her for losing weight because the media wants to put out a perception that being overweight is the new goal when it’s actually unhealthy.”
“Let’s get aside the fact of whether it’s fashion, en vogue, which it’s not. Let’s just — or if someone thinks it’s attractive, to each his own,” West continued. “It’s actually clinically unhealthy, and for people to promote that, it’s demonic.”
At a Friday show in Canada, Lizzo, who seeks attention on Instagram with obscene videos akin to obesity porn, complained about the spotlight from her activism.
“I feel like everybody in America got my motherf—cking name in they motherf—cking mouth for no motherf—cking reason, I’m minding my fat black beautiful business,” she said.
The American pop star then mused about remaining in Canada.
“Can I stay here?” she asked the audience in Toronto. “Who can I marry for that dual citizenship?”
West, however, is likely to save far more black lives than Lizzo. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), black and Hispanic minorities have the highest age-adjusted prevalence of obesity of any group. Fifty percent of black Americans are considered obese, in addition to nearly 46 percent of Hispanics. In his interview with Tucker Carlson last week, West claimed efforts to promote obesity were motivated by racism.
Obesity is linked to a higher risk of high blood pressure, cancers, diabetes, stroke, coronary heart disease, breathing problems, high cholesterol, and mental illness, to name a few, all while anchored in place by excess weight in the immediate future.
Lizzo, on the other hand, remains in U.S. headlines for good reason. Totally entitled, always the victim, and profiting off twerking videos on Instagram while she claims “oppression” on stage to her millions of fans, the singer has become an emblem of national decline.
The past generation used to admire the unapologetic patriotism of Hulk Hogan as a cultural icon. Now little girls are brought up to admire Lizzo’s victimhood and her “big black beautiful business” as a lifestyle to aspire to, despite the likelihood of an early death or the certainty of an immobile future.
