Lizzo Had The Best Response To Haters Of Her Basketball Game Butt Shaking

Truth hurts.

If Lizzo wants to bare her thong-clad butt at a basketball game, she’s going to do it and not give a hoot what you think.

Yesterday, the ‘Truth Hurts’ singer made headlines when she twerked courtside at a Lakers game wearing nothin’ but a t-shirt and a thong. 

Following Lizzo’s visual display of being “100% that bitch” the Internet was awash with mixed opinions. The singer’s fans praised her confidence, while others were busy clutching their pearls with disapproval.

Lizzo had zero time for the butt shaking hate and took to Instagram to respond. “Never ever let somebody stop you or shame you from being yourself,” she said during an Instagram Live. “This is who I’ve always been. Now everyone’s lookin’ at it, and your criticism can just remain your criticism. Your criticism has no effect on me.”

“Nothing really breaks my joy,” she said. “I’m a really solid, grounded person, and I know that I’m shocking because you’ve never seen in a long time a body like mine doing whatever it wants to do and dressing the way it dresses and moving the way it moves.”

“But I don’t ever want to censor myself because I’m suddenly famous, and I don’t want to censor myself because everyone’s looking at me now,” she said. “I’m not going to quiet myself. I’m not going to shrink myself because somebody thinks that I’m not sexy to them.”

Speaking of famous ladies who ooze confidence, hear about all the female artists who have been killing it in 2019 below:

Lizzo punctuated her thoughts by sharing a Twitter video of Rihanna twerking in a mesh dress with the caption, “MY INSPIRATION.”

Whether Lizzo’s basketball game butt shaking offended you or not, there’s one thing that’s clear – it didn’t hurt or harm anyone. If anything, the singer’s campaign for self-confidence and the acceptance of all body types is something we can all get on board with.

Don’t ever stop twerking or being unashamedly you, Lizzo. Can’t wait when she brings that fierce confidence to Australia for her Red Room (which you can win invites for right here).

Juice Wrld Eerily Predicted His Own Death In His Song Lyrics

The rapper was pronounced dead yesterday at the age of 21.

Today, fans and followers of Juice Wrld were rocked by the news that the 21-year-old rapper had died after suffering a seizure at Chicago’s Midway airport. 

According to TMZ, Juice Wrld – whose real name is Jarad Anthony Higgins – suffered the seizure while walking through the airport and was “bleeding from the mouth when paramedics got on scene.” He was then rushed to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Tributes from Juice Wrld’s friends and family have been flooding social media, but so have revelations about the rapper’s career – including predictions of his own death.

In his 2018 single ‘Legends,’ Juice Wrld referred to the infamous ‘27 Club’ – a group of artists including Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and more who all died at the age of 27. 

In the song, Juice Wrld rapped, “What’s the 27 Club? We ain’t making it past 21.” It’s an eerie lyric, only made more mysterious by the fact that that Juice Wrld turned 21 on December 2nd and died less than one week later.

Then there’s a bizarre tweet that the rapper posted in 2017 which read, “My goal is to get overly famous, shine for a couple of years…then fake my death.”

Juice Wrld is perhaps best known for his hit singles ‘All Girls Are The Same’ and ‘Lucid Dreams’ that were included in his debut studio album Goodbyes & Good Riddance which eventually went Platinum. 

The rapper joins a number of artists who tragically died young in recent times, including Lil Peep who died in 2017 at 21 from an accidental drug overdose and rapper XXXTentacion who was shot dead at the age of 20 last year.

It’s an incredibly sad day for Juice Wrld’s family, friends, and fans, and our hearts go out to all those affected by his untimely death.

Speaking of mysterious predictions, 2019 has been a big year for conspiracy theories – check it out for yourself below:
