Lizzo calls pop music ‘racist inherently,’ used to ‘segregate black artists from mainstream’



In the woke mind, blacks are perpetual victims and non-achievers.  Despite the tremendous worldwide success of black pop stars such as Donna Summer, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, and Whitney Houston and numerous others whose music repeatedly hit the top of the charts, Lizzo states that pop music has been and is “racist inherently” to segregate black artists.

The deluded victimhood-mongering Lizzo has also said: “I am not making music for white people,” ignoring the white producers and promoters who made her famous, as well as the white audiences who follow her. The wealthy victim uses white people to attain fame and fortune, then claims she is oppressed.

“Lizzo on stage anxiety, her identity theft, Harry Styles’ music, and why she can’t be defined,” by , Entertainment Weekly, November 25, 2022:

It’s the day before Thanksgiving, and Lizzo can barely contain her excitement. The yams, she tells EW over Zoom, are already calling her name.

One can’t blame the 34-year-old multihyphenate — rapper, singer, flutist, businesswoman — for wanting to indulge in a relaxing holiday. A few days prior, she wrapped up a run of more than two dozen dates on her Special tour, the last two nights of which were filmed in Los Angeles for the HBO Max special Lizzo: Live in Concert (premiering Dec. 31). It’s the culmination of a standout year for her, which also included hosting Saturday Night Live and serving as musical guest, releasing her Emmy-winning reality competition Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls, launching her shapewear brand Yitty, releasing her album Special, and unveiling her new documentary Love, Lizzo (now streaming on HBO Max)….

That’s a whole other documentary. Now, also in the doc, you talk about backlash over what you were wearing and people saying that you and your music weren’t Black enough. Is that a stigma of pop music, because the genre can be so white-feeling that if you have a hit there, then people think you’re catering to a specific demographic?

Absolutely. Well, genre’s racist inherently. I think if people did any research they would see that there was race music and then there was pop music. And race music was their way of segregating Black artists from being mainstream, because they didn’t want their kids listening to music created by Black and brown people because they said it was demonic and yada, yada, yada. So then there were these genres created almost like code words: R&B, and then of course eventually hip-hop and rap was born from that. I think when you think about pop, you think about MTV in the ’80s talking about “We can’t play rap music” or “We can’t put this person on our platform because we’re thinking about what people in the middle of America think” — and we all know what that’s code for.

So yes, because of that — fast-forward to 2022 — we have this well-oiled pop machine, but remember that it has a racist origin. And I think the coolest thing I’ve seen is rap and hip-hop artists become pop. Now pop music is really rap in its DNA — rap is running the game, and I think that’s so cool. But we forget that in the late ’80s and the early ’90s, there were these massive pop diva records that were sang by Black women like Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey. And I’m giving that same energy. I’m giving that same energy with a little bit of rap, and I think that people just have to get used to me. I think anything that’s new, people are going to criticize and feel like it’s not for them. But once you know what it is — just like I’ve got a friend who don’t like avocado but she likes guacamole; it don’t make no sense — but once you get used to something, it might be for you. So for people who don’t like pop music or don’t like Black artists that make pop music, they may eventually like me. I might be guacamole to them. You just gotta get used to me because I’m making good s—. You missing out. [Laughs]…
