AceShowbiz - Lizzo knows how to draw attention with her Instagram post. The Grammy Award-winning artist, who has been advocating body positivity, has stripped down to her birthday suit in an Instagram post marking Juneteenth.
In the video posted on Friday, June 19, the "Juice" raptress sat on a staircase decorated with red candles while she wore nothing but what appears to be a very long wig covering her body. "Happy Juneteenth, y'all!" she opened the clip, before announcing a raffle and silent auction to celebrate the holiday, which commemorates the end of slavery in America in 1865, and black businesses.
"This year, we're doing Juneteenth in a major way. Not only are we celebrating a Black American holiday, but I'm holding a silent auction and a raffle so we can give back to Black organizations and businesses," she told her followers, "specifically in the Twin Cities."
She urged her fans to sign up to LizzoLovesYou.com for a chance "to have an interactive experience with me, whether virtual or on the road, depending on the future of COVID and also, participate in a silent auction with some of my favorite people and artists." She added, "So go to LizzoLovesYou.com and celebrate Juneteenth by giving back to black."
According to the website, among the items to be auctioned include "priceless costumes and incredible products from" Missy Elliott, Janelle Monae and Tracee Ellis Ross. There are also artworks by black artists Jan Gatewood and Kezia Harrell as well as a custom vase in the shape of Lizzo's booty.
"For only a $10 minimum donation, you'll also be entered to win a trip to hang out with me backstage at an upcoming concert," Lizzo promises on the site. "You and a guest will get the full Lizzo Big Grrrl treatment! I'll fly you to one of my concerts (dates and locations TBD) and put you up in a sexy hotel. You can even learn some of the Big Grrrl moves and dance with us at soundcheck. You'll get VIP seats OR watch from backstage with your BIG GRRRL All Access Tour Pass."
