Lizzo Addresses Accusations That She Makes Music For White Audiences – Blavity
As confident as ever, in the interview the classically trained flutist talked about the one jab that gets to her the most.
“I am not making music for white people.” Lizzo, born Melissa Jefferson, told Vanity Fair that this was “probably the biggest criticism” she has received. Critics have alluded that her genre of bubblegum pop mixed with R&B makes her a sell-out.
During her interview, she continued to elaborate, saying, “It is such a critical conversation when it comes to Black artists. When Black people see a lot of white people in the audience, they think, ‘Well, this isn’t for me; this is for them.’ The thing is, when a Black artist reaches a certain level of popularity, it’s going to be a predominantly white crowd.”
