‘Luv Me Hair’ singer and producer Luv Me Says She’s Not Afraid of Being Called “Latina”
The Luv me Hair singer is speaking out in a new interview with Billboard.
The rapper was asked about the racial backlash that followed the news that the group’s upcoming album would feature a performance of a song by former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Latoya Jackson.
When asked if she’s worried about how people will respond to the name “Luv me,” the singer replied, “I don’t know if I’m Afraid, because I’m very comfortable with my name.
I’m like, ‘Lucy, Luv, Luvv, Luver’.”
The video for “Luvelight” featuring Latoya was shot by the actress, and featured her singing along to “Lavender Fields” with a little help from her stylist, who also helped her make her hair look natural.
In the video, the song is followed by an introduction from LuvMe Hair, who was also interviewed by the outlet.
The singer was asked what she thinks of the backlash against the name.
“It’s a little hard, because you’ve got to be in the middle of the political climate,” she said.
“But I feel very comfortable in my own skin and in my body.
I think, like, I’m not going to be afraid.
I feel like, at the end of the day, this is who I am.
I want people to be able to love me as a person and not be afraid of me.”
