Lizzo acknowledged the fact Kanye West name-dropped her on primetime television to decry obesity — but it sounds like she’s taking the high road … straight to Canada, apparently.
The singer was performing at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena Friday when she stopped at one point in the show to address Ye’s comments about her during his appearance on Tucker Carlson‘s show this week — and her response was to seek refuge there up north.
Lizzo says everyone in America has something to say about her, this while she just minds her business. She prefaced that with “fat, Black, beautiful” to hit her point home.
She then asks if she can stick around, to which the audience cheered. Lizzo openly wondered if she could marry someone for dual citizenship … and got a good laugh.
She didn’t mention Kanye explicitly … which is a similar approach she took when Aries Spears recently trashed her. There, too, she didn’t really lay into him … but simply said she’d let her success do the talking — despite people wanting her to “clap back.” Ditto for Ye, it seems.
Kanye West Says Attacks On Lizzo’s Weight Loss Is Evil Plan For Black Genocide
Remember, Kanye used Lizzo to make a point about folks supposedly booing the notion of bettering themselves through weight loss … something he called “demonic” and the “genocide of the Black race.”
He didn’t elaborate further, but Lizzo clearly disagrees.
