let’s talk about how important this moment was this past Monday on MTVs VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS. Now we can always count on lizzo to deliver an amazing performance, but we can also count on it to be for the culture and infused with self love. She’s had past performances of getting her hair braided on live tv, a church choir signing with her , and twerking while flawlessly playing the flute. This performance was no different. She had ALL full figured dancers who rocked Afro puffs! Until one moment where lizzo gave a speech about loving yourself no matter how hard the world makes it for you to which the dances then snatched off their Afro puffs to reveal cornrows❤️👏 to see that much beauty and diverse body loving types on national tv was Beautiful. Not to mention the crowd went nuts and gave her a standing ovation!!! She was without a doubt the BEST performance of the night (normani came in second). I know that moment meant so much to so many little full sized chocolate girls who don’t have long blonde hair. Lizzo is important! She’s proud of her body and embodies all of her imperfections!! She wears them proudly. And let’s everyone know” I’ll never be your side chick ” and “you could’ve had a bad bitch”. Man I wanna be like lizzo when I grow up. Her performance nearly brought me to tears!! Bravo lizzo. Bravo.🔈👏
Posting my art more. Also made a Instagram for it @shaniseart.
Im sorry for speaking so negatively on your name
I’m sorry for putting y’all down when the world already does that for you. A million times over.
I’m sorry for very IGNORANTLY stating how I don’t find “black” men attractive anymore and they are all DOGS
I’m sorry for having my eyes closed to all the brown golden wonders god created you to be.
I’m sorry for putting EVERY single race above you
I’m sorry for saying I prefer “white men”
Dear black kings I’m SORRY. From a ignorant chocolate sister who has her eyes stitched shut for over a decade. A chocolate sister who never felt appreciated therefore she continually knocked down a whole race of gorgeous educated powerful men. The world is against you. They are against us. It makes no sense in any world that I should be against you and not on your team. For no man will understand a black queen more than a black king. Your struggle is my struggle, I got you ❤️🤴🏾
Last year I stepped outside of my “artist” box and started a photography art series titled (BLOOM). I actually enjoyed it much more than I thought I would and got to experience a different type of fullness that I’ve never gotten before. I titled it bloom because it was me opening up to a different sensual/artistic side of me that I kept locked away for so long. I was “blooming”. Long story short I don’t claim to be a life changing amazing ARtIST okay. I’m doing my best here and in general think my art is pretty basic and shit. But doesn’t every artist think that? Here’s my new project titled (sex). Hope you enjoy. Please be kind. Or don’t, sis doesn’t really care either way.
Because sometimes the world just needs to see how amazing Lupita is!!! who’s All excited for US?! I am i am!
