Lizzo Credits Meme for Iconic ‘Truth Hurts’ Line

Amid speculation that two men were responsible for the iconic quip, Lizzo has come forward with the true inspiration for the song. Citing a meme derived from a viral tweet, Lizzo has revealed Mina Lioness is the author of that bar.

Lizzo has had quite a few battles in recent weeks. After the UberEats debacle and short spat with Iggy Azalea, a new challenger emerged. Two white men attempted to take credit for “Truth Hurts” as it topped Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for the year. As the girl anthem dethroned Iggy’s “Fancy”, songwriting brothers Justin and Jeremiah Raisen fought for credit. The duo insists the song plagiarises their co-written song “Healthy.” However, Lizzo has stated only she, Ricky Reed, and her tears were in the room when the song was penned. Being honest about the origin of her song, Lizzo has credited the author of the original tweet that spawned the meme, a Black woman who goes by Mina Lioness.

The original tweet was published in February 2017 and varies slightly from what is used in the song. Still, Lizzo and her team reached out to Mina for which she is very grateful. Stating “I want to publicly thank Lizzo and her entire management team for embracing me and reaching out.”, Mina shares that Lizzo went through the appropriate steps to credit her as a writer for the Billboard hit. With no bad blood between them, Mina said she has received nothing but positivity through their talks.

As for the Raisens, a post on Justin’s Instagram says they attempted to quietly settle their dispute, filing a claim in 2017. But Lizzo’s attorney shut down any attempts to take credit. The brothers asked for 5% of the song’s royalties and are continuing their fight. In a recent statement Justin Raisen said, “If Ricky and Lizzo’s team decide to settle this dispute with us, we would like to share some of the proceeds with Mino for her influence on Healthy.” Still, Lizzo’s representation says the brothers “did not collaborate with Lizzo or anyone else to create this song, and they did not help write any of the material that they now seek to profit from, which is why they expressly renounced any claim to the work, in writing, months ago.”

“Cardi B for Congress” Has Conservative Twitter PRESSED!

mm

Published

on

Cardi B is contemplating a run for office according to a series of tweets published this past Sunday, January 12. Unsurprisingly enough, she is already battling hate from all across the aisle. 

“I think I want to be a politician. I really love government even tho I don’t agree with Government (sic),” the New York rapper said in a series of tweets. “Like I was watching war documentaries. No matter how many weapons a country have you need people! How are you trying to go against a country and possibly start a war when this country lacks patriotism? I barely see people claiming the LOVE being American.”

 

The rapper then went on to say she will have to explain more at a later date, possibly in a video. After publicly endorsing Vermont Senator and progressive Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in 2019, Cardi was lauded for showing us the “woke” side of her image. 

On Tuesday, the rapper found herself in numerous Twitter spats, especially with right-wing accounts. Mindy Robinson, a conservative political pundit, commented on Cardi’s post with several drawn-in grammatical corrections. Despite Cardi admitting on Sunday that she would need more schooling before she could seriously enter politics, Robinson ended her tweet with “you need more than that.” In a later comment, she declared that her “cat is more qualified to run for Congress than Cardi B.”

 

Cardi, whose given name is Belacalis Almánzar, is no stranger to Twitter beef and quickly had an answer for Robinson. “Leave me alone. I didn’t insulted your party or your believes so please don’t try me and let’s keep sweet OK….don’t want to dog walk you,” she replied before unleashing a savage string of jabs toward the internet personality. 

 

While a dog walk sounds like a peaceful way to spend quality time with your beloved pooch, for Cardi, it is a serious threat – one we’ve heard before. You will recall in January of 2019 she warned Tomi Lahren, another conservative pundit, to leave her alone, lest she gets dog walked. Just as in the feud with Robinson, Cardi was minding her own business on social media Tomi Lahren attacked her for her views. Her comments lit a fire in the rapper and the two engaged in a back and forth lasting several hours. 

 

Obviously Robinson did not get the message a year ago that Cardi B has the time to argue with internet trolls because she found herself in the same predicament as Lahren did – potentially discovering what it’s like to “dog walk” with Cardi. 

 

Check out the best of both feuds below and let us know what you think.
