“They’ll never have to worry about not being credited by me,” Harlow said in the Teen Vogue article.
He continued, “I mean, I look out at my shows and I see them. It’s one thing when you see the memes and you hear people talking about it, but it’s another when you travel the country and you see them all over the place. I love Black women. I’ve loved Black women my whole life.”
While I don’t doubt the validity behind this statement, it’s just funny that he credits Black women and didn’t even know that Ray J and our Black queen Brandy were siblings.
Many Black people were not even aware of who Harlow was until he was featured on Nas X’s smash hit “Industry Baby” in 2021 and now Nas X being snubbed from the award show has pissed a lot of people off, including Lil Nas X himself.
In the story from Teen Vogue, Harlow also touched on many of the negative reviews of his latest album, Come Home the Kids Miss You. If you didn’t know, it has been torn to shreds by critics and music listeners on social media. But, Harlow did not shy away from the criticism.
He said, according to Teen Vogue, “I’ve been so validated by the world over the last year and just put on a pedestal and loved. To experience a taste of the opposite, I think it’s good for my growth.”
He continued, “It teaches you not to put too much stock in either because the world is finicky. But I’m proud to say my confidence and my thoughts on my trajectory haven’t been shaken. A lot of it has been a big surprise to me, after I caught wind of some of it. I’ve been able to do a good job of stepping away.”
