“LIZZO” no introduction needed


2019 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival - Weekend 2 - Day 3

If this is the first time you have heard the name Lizzo, it wont be your last.

She has recently become a member of a very exclusive club. She joins Lauryn Hill, Lil Kim, Shawnnna, IggyAzalea, and Cardi B as the only female rappers to hit number one on Billboard’s hot 100 chart. No your eyes don’t deceive you, there are a few notable names missing here.

Lizzo, (born) Melissa Viviane Jefferson is not an overnight sucess. She started performing as a teen in Houston. Her career as a recording artist began after moving to Minneapolis. Back in 2014, Time Magazine, named her one of the fourteen music artist to watch. A professional flutist she studied classical Music at the University of Houston..

She’s been called Corny. Some have accused her of pandering to white audiences. Which happens to some black performers who have a white following. Whitney Houston was booed by some members of the audience when she first appeared on the BET awards.

A lot of the hate she is currently receiving, is from lessor known artists, who are attacking her for her weight, her theme and……….

They will have more reasons to hate Lizzo, as she is starring along side Jenny from the block, Cardi B and others in the “Hustlers opens nationwide.Thursday( Sept 12)

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
