Backlash Erupts Over Kendrick Lamar’s Praise of Women’s Natural Bodies in ‘Humble’ Video

Kendrick Lamar shared his love for women’s natural looks and imperfections in the video for his new single “Humble,” but not everyone is feeling the same as some accused him of misogyny.

After Lamar obliterated his hip-hop peers on “The Heart Part 4” last week, “Humble,” released in the early hours of Friday, March 31, is a change of pace due to his appreciation of unapologetically Black afros and women’s stretch marks.

“I’m so f—–‘ sick and tired of the Photoshop,” Lamar spits. ” Show me somethin’ natural like afro on Richard Pryor / Show me somethin’ natural like ass with some stretch marks / Still will take you down right on your mama’s couch in Polo socks, ayy.”

The highly visual clip also contains overt religious themes like a take on Leonardo da Vinci’s mural “The Last Supper,” but Twitter users were stuck on Lamar’s musical celebration of women’s unedited beauty and the song quickly went to No. 1 on the iTunes songs chart.

Many applauded the ode to embracing natural looks.

At least one was a bit cautious.

Some took issue with Lamar’s stretch mark line, as they felt he was trying to control women’s bodies.

That led other users to slam negative responses to “Humble.”
