Singer Makes It Clear She Is “Not Making Music For White People”

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Lizzo emphatically refuted the notion that she creates music for a “white audience.” The 34-year-old musician, renowned for her diverse musical style blending hip hop, gospel, and R&B, emphasized that her music is a reflection of her black experience. Chart-topping hits like “Good as Hell” and “About Damn Time” have propelled her to pop music stardom, but Lizzo expresses concern that songs initially intended for a black audience have gained immense popularity among white listeners.

Lizzo candidly addressed the criticism she has faced regarding the demographic makeup of her audience, acknowledging the complex conversation surrounding black artists and their evolving popularity. She noted the tendency for black artists reaching a high level of fame to attract predominantly white crowds, stating, “When black people see a lot of white people in the audience, they think, ‘Well, this isn’t for me. This is for them.’”
