Don’t you love discovering things you really, really like?
There is, of course, the question of, “How did I not know about this?”
But you know now, and that’s a goodness.
Making the rounds in the fat community is a lovely music video by rapper/singer Lizzo for her song My Skin.
Lizzo reminds me a lot of Missy Elliot, and I like Missy Elliot a lot.
I watched the video on YouTube (helping out my husband on the (fat) news roundup for the NAAFA newsletter), and saw there were a bunch of Lizzo videos.
I loved Good as Hell – telling women
I loved Let ‘Em Say (with Caroline Smith)
But what really moved me, was a video Lizzo did as part of the Underneath project. In it, she discusses her journey as a fat woman and a black woman, while removing clothing, wig and makeup. Exposing the beautiful natural woman on a number of levels.
This is why I am now a fan of Lizzo. She is as beautiful inside as she is on the outside.
