Lizzo’s Light-Hearted Remark On Banana Sex Shows Resurfaces
A shocking video resurfaced online following the emergence of sexual harassment allegations leveled against Lizzo, born Melissa Viviane Jefferson.
In the short clip, Lizzo can be seen smiling and giggling in a conversation with 3FM’s DJ Frank van der Lende while sharing her experience in the Red Light District of Amsterdam, known for its sex theaters, sex shops, nude clubs, and bars.
“It was people f*cking, man. It was crazy. But you know what, it was beautiful,” she said, adding that she also witnessed a sex show where a couple was “passionately making love” and “kissing.”
“But I’m trying to go to the show where you eat the banana out of the p*ssy. Which one is that?” Lizzo asked.
“It’s the Bananenbar,” van der Lende replied.
She then made the pointed remark, “Oh, that’s the Bananenbar? And they have the banana in the coochie and you have to go, (makes biting sound)?”
She added, “I need my potassium, if you know what I’m saying. My p*ss-tassium.”
Lizzo Was Accused Of Sexual Harassment
Amid Lizzo’s remark on banana sex shows, the “About Damn Time” singer finds herself at the center of serious allegations.
According to the Daily Mail, three of Lizzo’s former dancers, Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez, have filed a lawsuit claiming they were sexually harassed and were subjected to a hostile work environment during their time working with the artist.
The lawsuit alleges that the dancers faced mistreatment, including verbal abuse, weight-shaming, and intimidation, while performing as part of Lizzo’s dance team during a concert trip in February 2023.
It accused the singer of “inviting cast members to take turns touching the nude performers, catching dildos launched from the performers’ vaginas, and eating bananas protruding from the performers’ vaginas.”
Lizzo Responds To Sexual Harassment Allegations
In the wake of the recent allegations from her former dancers accusing her of sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment, the Grammy-winning singer has broken her silence to address the claims head-on.
In a lengthy statement shared on social media, Lizzo addressed the accusations directly, asserting that she’s “not the villain” and that the allegations were “too outrageous” not to respond to.
“These last few days have been gut-wrenchingly difficult and overwhelming disappointing,” her statement read. “My work ethic, morals, and respectfulness have been questioned. My character has been criticized. Usually, I choose not to respond to false allegations but these are as unbelievable as they sound and too outrageous not to be addressed.”
The singer noted that she sometimes “has to make hard decisions” but never intended to make anyone feel devalued or unimportant.
“I’m hurt but I will not let the good work I’ve done in the world be overshadowed by this. I want to thank everyone who has reached out in support to lift me up during this difficult time,” Lizzo concluded.
Lizzo’s Accusers Slam Her ‘Dismissive’ Response
Following her public statement addressing the allegations made by her former dancers, the trio responded to her remarks, expressing their disappointment and frustration with what they perceived as a “dismissive” tone from the artist.
In a joint statement released through their legal representative, the former dancers stated that Lizzo’s response showed an “utter lack of empathy” towards their experiences while working with her.
“Lizzo has failed her own brand and has let down her fans,” the statement read. “Her denial of this reprehensible behavior only adds to our clients’ emotional distress.”
They wrote Lizzo’s comments off as “dismissive” and showing an “utter lack of empathy,” stating they are “quite telling about her character” and that they “only serve to minimize the trauma she has caused the plaintiffs and other employees who have now come forward sharing their own negative experiences.”
“While Lizzo notes it was never her intention ‘to make anyone feel uncomfortable,’ that is exactly what she did to the point of demoralizing her dancers and flagrantly violating the law,” the statement concluded.
