Loni: Jill Scott’s NSFW Concert Video Reminds Us That Plus Sized Women Are Sexy Too
Loni Love: Women have been showing their sexuality in a lot of concerts… I mean, Janet Jackson used to do it…
Adrienne Houghton: Been doing it for years!
Jeannie Mai: Yes!
Loni: Been doing it for years…
Adrienne: Velvet Rope.
Loni: Yeah, I mean, Beyonce, they do it, it’s a artistry. I was just reading something that kind of disturbs me, though, ‘cause I was reading that some people feel like because she’s a plus-sized Black woman…
Adrienne: No… she’s beautiful…
Loni: Wait a minute… wait, let me finish.
Jeannie: Ok, ok.
Adrienne: No, I’m saying it’s wrong.
Loni: Yeah, that she’s a plus-sized black woman, they look at her as “mammyfied…”
April Ryan: Oh, no, no no…
Loni: And that they don’t see her as sexy. So when they saw that Jill Scott, doing what she was doing, they felt like that wasn’t sexy because she was a plus-sized Black woman.
Jeannie: I see.
Loni: Let me tell you about us big women:
April: Go ahead girl, tell it Loni! Tell it Loni!
Loni: We do it… and we do it well…
April: Tell it Loni! Tell it, Loni!
Loni: … and we just do it a lot bigger, OK? So believe me, don’t fool yourself with us, all right?
Loni: It’s a new day. It’s a new day for us!
Adrienne Houghton: I’m sorry, I thought it was hot!
Loni: Let that girl live her life.
Jeannie: Learn something today!
Adrienne: She was teaching some people out there!
Loni: Something today, all right?
