SZA Comments On Kendrick Lamar’s Stretch Mark Line From ‘Humble’
When Kendrick Lamar dropped the song ‘Humble’ off his DAMN. album a few months back, it got a lot of praise. However, some women apparently had a problem with these lines in the cut and felt Kendrick shouldn’t be making comments about their bodies:
“I’m so fucking sick and tired of the Photoshop / Show me something natural like afro on Richard Pryor / Show me something natural like ass with some stretch marks / Still will take you down right on your mama’s couch in Polo socks,” spit K Dot.
But SZA said she disagreed with the backlash and didn’t know what Kendrick said that was so disrespectful.
“How is that misogyny if he’s supporting positive body image?” she asked during an interview with Glamour. “If you want to support women, you should support all shapes of women. I used to be 200 pounds, and I have stretch marks all over my body. I find more comfort and solace with Kendrick reinforcing that I’m beautiful. I don’t really feel anything misogynistic from that.”
What do you think about what SZA had to say about Kendrick and the ‘Humble’ lyrics? Do you agree?
