Lizzo Got Me Enrolled In Her Twerk Tutorial At Outside Lands The Body Positive Rapper's Stage Presence Is Undeniable
SAN FRANCISCO, CA-
“… At 2:20pm, the Minneapolis-based rapper Lizzo came roaring to the stage. Lizzo is a force of nature. Period.
Lizzo’s been in the music game for a while. Not only has she been a part of several hip hop (Crime Mob, Cornroll Clique) and R&B (Chalice) groups and crews, she’s worked with a impressive list of artists that cover the musical genre spectrum from Prince & 3rdEyeGirl to Bastille to Har Mar Superstar and opened from non-hip hop acts like Sleater-Kinney. I think I know why.
There’s something undeniable about Lizzo’s stage presence. There’s a kind of magnetism to her personality that goes really makes you go, “I’d really like to be her friend… her best friend” Sure, her performance- backed by a DJ and two hyped dancers (the “Big Girls”)- is bright, thumping and guaranteed to get a party started virtually anywhere, but there’s something about her warm confidence that really makes you feel comfortable to be where you’re at in the moment. Lizzo is all about body positivity and self-love, and she made sure that San Fransisco knew where she was coming from, making her performance that much more authentic and real to enjoy. Heck, if she could get my non-rhythmic hips to engage in her “twerk-tutorial”, she can pretty much get anybody to fall in love with her as well…”
