“This s*** is bananas B A N A N A S.”
But we’re not talking about Gwen Stefani’s 2004 mega-hit “Hollaback Girl.”
We’re talking about Lizzo, who also seems to have a curious fascination with the elongated yellow fruit.
The “body-positive” icon is being sued for a number of allegations, one of which involves “forcing” her background dancers to eat bananas out of prostitutes' vaginas.
Many have been quick to criticize the pop star and deboard the Lizzo bandwagon. Reports show that she’s lost over 154,000 social media followers since the incident went public.
Emily Austin, however, isn’t ready to link arms with the Lizzo haters until she gets more information.
“Did [Lizzo] put a gun to your head and say you’re gonna eat this banana?” she rants to Sara Gonzales, clearly not buying into the hype.
“To be fair,” Sara jokes, “she’s very large … I might be a little intimidated if Lizzo was like ‘you will eat this banana!”’
Which brings us to the next allegation.
Ironically, Lizzo has also been accused of “fat-shaming” her dancers for weight gain.
“She’s supposed to be the new empowerment of … female beauty,” says Sara. Current beauty standards supposedly make it “okay to be morbidly obese – just look at Lizzo,” so “why isn’t it okay for her female dancers then?”
