Lizzo Sliding In The DMs While Drunk Is All Of Us

Was it wine, sis? Hennessy? We need details!

Lizzo

If it's never been clear before, hopefully by now, it is understood that we love us some Lizzo around here. She is just refreshing in every way: not afraid to be herself and certainly not afraid to navigate her vulnerability in doing so. Most recently, she made headlines when she decided to indulge in a few libations and go ape shit on the world wide web, essentially completing our weekend. The Grammy-winner posted a video to TikTok with a simple warning for her 14.5 million followers:

@lizzo

Don’t drink and DM, kids.... for legal porpoises this is a joke

"Don't drink and DM, kids," the Grammy-winning singer captioned her video. Using the audio from TikTok star Tatayanna Mitchell, Lizzo revealed she set her sights on Chris Evans, of Avengers ultra-fame, in a clear attempt to shoot her shot. The internet was shooketh, because surely a woman of her caliber doesn't do the same thing us peasants do, right? Wrong! Sis went after her gold and struckkkkk.

In a follow-up video, Lizzo revealed an important update: Chris Evans replied to her which only made me secretly be like, OF COURSE he did, she's Lizzo (so people can stop acting like she isn't on his level...but that's another subject for another day.)!

Any who, the video continues:

"The reason I'm upset about this one is because I know I'm not going to be able to marry him. And honestly, it hurts me to the core. Because, damn papa, he a rare breed, no comparing. Like, Chris …"

And this isn't the first time the crooner has set her sights on Evans. Lizzo previously went public with her feelings back in 2019, after he re-shared a video of a young girl dancing to Lizzo's hit song "Juice", writing, "This kid is cooler than I could ever hope to be." She responded at the time with a follow-up tweet, writing to Evans, "Wow marry me" with a shrug face emoji.

Evans was a good sport with the sudden influx of attention, ultimately repling, "No shame in a drunk DM, God knows I've done worse on this app lol." He then followed her back.

Listen ladies, of course, the moment is in jest, but most importantly, it allows for the conversation to be had; the conversation that women, no matter who they are, are in the game of normalizing what it means to be confident enough to go after what, and who, they want. And if anyone knows confidence, it is Melissa Viviane Jefferson, who has made a career out of teaching us all to love ourselves (something she has struggled with in the past):

"Can you do me a HUGE favor?... no matter what you're doing right now... can you take a second and pause? Now.. Take 3 deep breaths... 1 ... 2 .... and a super deep breath on 3..... imagine pure love coming into your body and hold it right on your heart. Then say to yourself: "I LOVE YOU. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. AND YOU CAN DO ANYTHING." Repeat as many times as you need. Thank you, I really appreciate it."

We sure will, sis.

Simone Biles is a decorated U.S. gymnast who captured the hearts of many with her ambitious, yet graceful moves. However, over the past year, fans got to witness another side of Simone after the gymnast began expressing the issues she's faced regarding her mental health. The Olympic gold medalist shocked everyone when she pulled out of some of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games, citing "twisties" as the reason. The twisties is a gymnastics term that is described as losing control of your body while spinning in the air.

The relationship we have and nurture with self lays the foundation for how we relate to and connect with others in our lives. Assessing the issues that discourage self-love from prospering are key in order to repair and reignite the freedom that comes when we finally believe the words "you are enough." I chatted with self-love advocate and lifestyle entrepreneur Shelah Marie – who you may remember from when her 2017 photo of doing yoga with boyfriend, rapper Ace Hood, went viral. Shelah's mission is to create a movement of total self-love and liberation for women of color through her platform Curvy, Curly, Conscious – a place where "self-help" meets "real talk" through virtual and offline events and retreats.

The first time I really learned about the five love languages was a year after a big heartbreak in my early twenties, and since then I've found myself exploring the love languages of each of my subsequent partners in an effort to be a better lover to them. At the click of a simple quiz, you'll know whether words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, or physical touch is the primary way you prefer to experience love.

At the start of each season, I browse the net to get an idea of the latest styles and trends to look out for when adding to my closet. When shopping, not only do I love items that are hot for the moment but mainly those that I can keep in rotation year after year. I especially look for styles that are both modern and classic, giving off an effortlessly timeless vibe.

Kissing is such a fascinating thing — to me. The reason why I say that is because, if the person you are exchanging a kiss with is someone who is good at it, it can be the sexiest, most special and most exhilarating thing ever. On the other hand, if they aren't so good — it's just gross. I don't know about y'all, but kissing is such a big deal in my world that I once broke up with someone, in part, because they totally sucked at doing it. It was like, no matter how hard I tried to explain to them what I needed in order to feel like we were in "kissing sync", they would continue to go off and do their own thing. All over my face (yuck).
