I’m always fascinated when Mainstream America catches up with Black America. Lizzo is the norm in my community — confident in look, size, etc. The flute is what sets her apart for us. Size wise, we’ve always been all over the place from rail thin to BBW. Now as far as Billie Eilish, yeah, she gives me edgier vibes. But she just seemed awkward when she was around someone edgier than she was (i.e. Tiffany Haddish). Love the song. Not totally sold on the personality behind it though. I f**king love seeing Tiffany Haddish and Megan Trainer together though on that Snoop and Martha Stewart cooking show.
